Sign changes at top of former Shaw building
BATON ROUGE – The sign atop the high-rise building off Essen Lane near I-10 has changed.
It's the third time in the building's history the fixture at the top has been removed and a new one added. Now, a rectangle sign recognizes the building's new tenant – Aptim, an asset company focusing on power, industrial, oil and gas, commercial and government operations. Originally, the Shaw letters hung from the top and then CB&I after it acquired the Baton Rouge-based Fortune 500 company.
CB&I sold the “Capital Services” branch, headquartered on Essen Lane, to Veritas Capital, which re-branded the operation as Aptim this summer. Employees that remained with CB&I and were not affiliated with the sold division moved out of the building and to CB&I's new local office space in Towne Center.
CB&I said it has “several hundred” employees at the new office and at its fabrications facility in Walker.
