We’ll learn new details Saturday morning about construction progress on Boone Electric Cooperative’s new headquarters near Rangeline and I-70 in Columbia.

Boone Electric general manager Todd Culley will join host Fred Parry tomorrow in-studio at 7 am on 939 the Eagle’s “CEO Round Table.”

Construction began last year. Mr. Culley tells 939 the Eagle that construction of the headquarters should be done by September, and he’s hoping to have the employees moved in by November. Boone Electric spokeswoman Meredith Hoenes tells 939 the Eagle that windows are in and that most of the work has moved to the interiors. Hoenes says most of the electrical, HVAC and plumbing are in.

Coil Construction is managing the massive project, which includes a vehicle storage building.

Fred Parry and Mr. Culley will also discuss renewable energy, labor availability and economic development during the hour-long radio program.

Boone Electric began in 1936 and was Missouri’s first rural electric cooperative. It began with 140 members and now has more than 30,000 members in Boone and five other mid-Missouri counties: Audrain, Callaway, Howard, Monroe and Randolph.
