Kirt Baker, Corna Kokosing Ironworker, Wins Bx Craftsmanship Award

We are proud to share the news that Kirt Baker has won a Builders Exchange (BX) Craftsmanship Award for his structural steel work on Cristo Rey High School. The project was a historical renovation of the 1890’s Ohio School for the Blind and the Deaf and an addition of new structural openings at the new high school.

The BX Craftsmanship Awards recognize the finest craftsmen – people who don’t just take pride in what they do, but those who go above and beyond to do outstanding work.

Kirt and his team saw-cut vertical joints in the 24-30 inch brick walls and while using a chain hoist and rigging, inserted massive C-channels (weighing 1,800 pounds) into the saw joint and drilled through the wall to bolt it into place.

Congratulations, Kirt! Your work deserves this recognition and we are proud to have you on the Corna Kokosing team!
