Lifetime Achievement Recognition | Barry Blazevic | MN/ND Bricklayers & Allied Craftworkers Training Center

MC&MCA has not done this next honor in a long time—if ever!

We feel it is appropriate to recognize someone for a Lifetime of Achievement. That person is Barry Blazevic! 

Barry, one of MC&MCA’s most reliable volunteers is retiring as a contractor, but that is not all!

Barry is a poster child representation of our industry.  A bricklayer, son of a cement mason, and brother of another cement mason, he went from working long hours for his father’s business to running the business.  His father started ADB Construction 50 years ago.  


After learning their way through the ranks, Barry and his brother Nick purchased the company from their dad, and ran ADB Construction for their entire adult work life.

Along the way they found MC&MCA.  Barry showed up for a meeting and his impact was nearly immediate.  He soon was deeply involved in various MC&MCA committees, trustee positions, labor negotiations and served all positions on the board and volunteered for special projects whenever asked.  Barry is such a skilled public speaker that he was forced to emcee far too many events to count.  Thankfully Dianne, the love of his life, allowed MC&MCA to steal so much of his free time.  Barry Blazevic has been a GREAT steward of our industry and our association.  His insight and integrity are priceless assets that we will forever be thankful for.
