Andy Locklair has been named vice president of operations of Hendrick Construction Inc.
Locklair joined the company in 2002 as a superintendent and was promoted to general superintendent and project manager before being named vice president.
He has managed more than 50 projects, including phase one of the $12 million Mecklenburg County Freedom Center renovation and the $9 million renovation and addition to the county’s Jail-North facility. He also led the renovation of an occupied 26,000-sq.-ft. pharmaceutical manufacturing plant in Charleston, S.C.
“Andy has been with Hendrick Construction since the beginning, and he has been instrumental in our establishment and growth,” said Roger Hendrick, president of Hendrick Construction. “He is extremely capable, and we expect Andy to have an important hand in our company’s future as our first vice president.”
Locklair’s responsibilities include oversight of subcontractor scheduling, material coordination, quality control and on-site safety management. He also develops and manages the roles of all field personnel and administers daily construction activity.
He was instrumental in securing a Building STAR designation from the N.C. Department of Labor for the Mecklenburg County Jail-North annex site. The Building STAR designation, which is part of the state Occupational Safety and Health Division’s Carolina STAR program, recognizes construction companies with exceptional safety programs that strive for accident-free work sites.
Locklair has a Green Advantage environmental certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, and he is certified by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for completing the 30-hour construction industry outreach training course.
