What is your role?

My role here is Purchasing. All of the company purchasing comes through me. I take care of our mechanic shop purchases all the way to the steel erection side of purchasing. My goal is to seek reliable vendors/suppliers to provide quality goods at reasonable prices.

What makes a great day at work?

A great day at Superior for me is getting through the day under budget, while still completing the jobs and getting our guys what they need to complete the task.

What is your favorite thing about the Superior brand?

My favorite thing about SR&E is we always get the job done. Every person I hear from tells me how the customers are always happy when we leave a job. That speaks volumes for the company. For that reason, Atlanta let’s us perform in some holiday traditions around the city. It is always cool to see us being apart of those events.

During my free time, you can normally find me at the lake enjoying the weekend or watching college football.

What is your favorite travel spot?

My favorite spot to go is my grandparent’s cabin in Hiawassee, Georgia.

What advice would you give to new employees?

My advice to new employees is to be dependable, show up on time and do the job right. Do not complain and respect everyone – that will make the job enjoyable.

This week we are spotlighting our Corporate Safety Director, Robert Nugent. Robert is 23 years old and married to Cathy Nugent. He has recently been awarded several awards for his outstanding work towards keeping Superior Rigging and Erecting Co. a safe working environment, including the AISC Safety Award, SC&RA Project Safety Award, and the SC&RA Crane & Rigging Safety Award.

Robert joined the Superior Rigging and Erecting team in March of 2016 after graduating from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor’s degree in Construction Science and minors in Architecture and Business. As the Corporate Safety Director, Robert oversees the overall health, safety and well-being of the SRE workforce and workplace. He has contributed to lowering the incident rate by more than 300%, achieving outstanding commitment to the safety culture. Way to go, Robert!

A great day at work for Robert is completing all jobs safely without any incidents or injuries. So far, the most exciting job he has been involved with was the Mercedes Benz Stadium project because of the unique structural complexity and the ability to complete the job with zero recordable injuries. When Robert isn’t winning safety awards, you can find him hunting, fishing or lying back on a beach somewhere.

Robert’s advice to us: Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Never conduct a task that you feel is unsafe. Plan and communicate at all times.
