Electrical Connection IBEW/NECA in the News

As tickets go on sale for a chance to win the St. Jude Dream Home in St. Charles County, the IBEW/NECA partnership is finishing up donating services to complete electrical work in the home.  The home is taking shape at the Streets of Caledonia in O’Fallon, Mo. and carries an estimated value of $565,000. It features four bedrooms and 2.5 baths in 2,800 square feet of living space.   NECA contractor Grasser Electric and its IBEW workforce are now working on installing all of the electrical infrastructure and fixtures for homebuilder Fischer Homes. Proceeds from the ticket sales will benefit children served by the renowned St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.  The winner of the home will be announced later this summer.


 The promise of energizing high-end living options around the Meadows at Lake Saint Louis shopping center is unfolding in two luxury apartment communities being built with the assistance of the IBEW/NECA partnership.  The Meadows Luxury Living is taking shape along Technology Boulevard across from the retail enclave which debuted in 2008.  J.
