Shiel Sexton boasts “Expect More” from every employee and project. Sometimes, there are actions that go above and beyond. Dirk Dudeck and Greg Irish have been an integral part of constructing the Tabernacle Presbyterian Church (TAB) Sports Complex and their hard work and efforts should be celebrated.

This has been a tough, ongoing project for almost three years of dedicated work from the pre-construction team and continuous support from Superintendent, Greg Irish and Project Manager, Dirk Dudeck. There were many challenges that they helped overcome such as:

  •  Matching the historical limestone church with modern EIFS construction dictated by the project budget
  •  Navigating the Citizens Energy utility maze to re-work the existing water service and sanitary sewer from the church
  •  Keeping the building and sidewalks within ADA compliance while shoe-horning the project between the existing church and football field.

Starting a new project within constraints of existing parameters resulted in numerous adjustments and challenges. Dudeck worked extensively with the architect and civil engineer, in conjunction with SSC concrete, to develop updated grades for multiple areas around the stadium.

This team should be very proud of their efforts to deliver a quality project that will provide upgraded seating, concessions, bathrooms and much needed storage for the TAB athletic program. Futures generations of north-side youth are sure to be impacted by the on-going mission of TAB and the impact of this project.

Greg and Dirk’s efforts on these challenges are a great example of the Expect More culture at Shiel Sexton.
