Work Hard, Dream Big, Accomplish the Unimaginable

| Category: Newsletter

You only have one body in your lifetime, so why not take care of it? The BP Group knows how important it is to understand the key benefits of supporting health and wellness in the workplace. As a company we are taking steps to create a healthier work environment and are encouraging our employees to do the same at both work and home.

Jackie Fanneron is BP’s personal trainer and organizer behind our health and wellness program. She helps many of our employees get a fitness plan together and joins them on their journey to create a healthier life. Laura Billiot, a BP employee, took BP’s health and wellness program by storm and gives us confirmation that promoting health and wellness in a working environment can really help change employees lives!

6 months ago, Laura made the admirable decision to stop smoking. Around this time she started training with Jackie in the BP office gym. Training helped Laura stay on the smoke free path as it kept her mind occupied with fitness instead of cigarettes. Laura’s fitness goal that she made for herself was the Long Island Half Marathon. By following the fitness plan Jackie had mapped out (running and strength training 3-4 times a week) Laura competed and completed her first LI Half Marathon!

With a wonderful feeling of accomplishment in completing her first goal, Laura was even more determined when setting her second goal. This time, Laura looked to family, more specifically her father, for inspiration when she decided that she would like to compete in the 2016 NYC Triathlon. Laura’s father partook in several triathlons in France so she felt this goal was something she and her father could bond over.

We are delighted to have employees like Laura utilizing BP’s health and wellness program to create an improved life for themselves. Over the past 3 years, Laura has proved that she will prosper professionally and personally to meet her goals. Starting off at BP as an Assistant Project Manager, quickly switching gears into our estimating department and now back to the project management team as a Jr. Project Manager. Much like her health and wellness goals, her vast professional dreams are leading her to become very well rounded in order to get an overall understanding of our industry.

Remember, “Where there is no struggle, there is no strength”. Laura, reach for the stars. Your BP family supports you on your journey to the 2016 NYC triathlon!

Let Freedom Ring

| Category: Newsletter

No day shall erase the memories our BP family consumes and shares of The World Trade Center. With heavy hearts, we reminisce times spent doing some of our finest work for our cherished clients in the beloved buildings. Though we will never forget, the time has come where we must move forward and take care of one another by participating in the construction of New York’s newest symbolic building, The Freedom Tower.

The BP Group is both honored and humbled to be a part of the erection of The Freedom Tower. The trade center will forever have a place in America’s heart which is one of the reasons why The Freedom Tower project is so monumental for our country. The creation of the building symbolizes the strength and courage of New York. Winston Churchill once said, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.”

Jim Thompson, Emilios Alexandrakis, and Cynthia Djongoue-Kamga were the BP project managers whom were chosen to oversee the various projects we constructed in The Freedom Tower including the legendary observation deck. This floor specifically was very special to our company because we feel it is where people will go to capture mental images of our incredible city which leave an imprint in their hearts that will last a life time, just like the late Trade Center did for our company along with our country.

People from all walks of life will travel to The Freedom Tower observation deck and will subconsciously grasp that it’s not what they are looking at that matters, it’s what they see and take from the experience that will forever be a part them. It is with our greatest pride to have been a part of this monumental construction build.
