2013 BX Craftsmanship Award Recipient

The 2013 BX Craftsmanship Award goes to…Rusty Henley of Mid-City Electric!


Rusty's award-winning work was the electrical portion of a conversion to a compressed natural gas facility at the COTA Maintenance Center. Careful planning and attention to detail helped Rusty Henley expertly install the electrical service and systems needed to convert the COTA bus storage and maintenance center to a compressed natural gas facility.


Winter weather, a nine month construction schedule and the need to keep the facility fully operational were just some of the challenges encountered by Henley and his crew of 71 while installing the new technology in the 355,000 square-foot facility.


Henley coordinated the electrical service for a new natural gas station and the installation of 24 new air handlers, 56 explosion proof exhaust fans, a new fire alarm system, new telecom data systems and a new electrical generator and switchboard.


A member of Electrical Workers Local Union 683, Henley has been an electrician for 21 years. He has been employed by Mid-City Electric for the past 14.

Henley is a first-time Craftsmanship Award recipient. He also worked on the award-winning power distribution project at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Mid-City Electric is honored to have Rusty as part of our team and congratulate him on a job well done! Please visit the BX website for this article and more news!
