Remedial Construction Services L.P. (RECON) was founded in 1989 by Steve Birdwell to meet the growing demand for specialized construction services. Over the years, it has grown to be the industry leader in environmental remediation, geotechnical construction, industrial construction, decommissioning and demolition services, with a reputation for providing innovative solutions to complex environmental challenges.
The RECON Founder Scholarship was established to honor Steve’s dedication to the organization, and to help the children of employees. After more than 30 years, we remain thankful and grateful for his service and the opportunity to offer the renewable scholarship year after year.
