The headquarters is home to employees of KGM, described as a joint venture firm of Kiewit, General and Manson contractors (the company that won the bid to rebuild the 520 Bridge), and employees from the state Department of Transportation.
The KOMO investigation inspired Kiewit to launch its own investigation, and as a result of that action KOMO now reports "Five people have been suspended without pay - including a senior vice president" as a result of the jobsite imbibing.
From KOMO's story:
The drinking by employees of bridge contractor Kiewit originally was exposed during a KOMO Problem Solvers hidden camera investigation last month.
The company then followed up with a comprehensive investigation, which found that alcohol consumption did occur "sporadically" in company work spaces at the end of employees' work days, said Keiwit spokesman Tom Janssen.
As a result of the company's investigation, five people have been suspended without pay. Other employees may receive letters of counseling in their personnel files. Training sessions also have been scheduled for other employees.
