Members brought along their team of Project Managers and Supervisors, Foremans and Engineers, as well as the Owners of the particular project, to celebrate these excellence in quality, safety, budget commitment, and more. Also awarded were STEP (Safety Training Evaluation Program) Winners and Merit Alliance Winners (those submitting a project, who worked with the most Member-Subcontractors on that project).
Those interested in entering a project for the 2018 Excellence in Construction - submissions will be accepted in early August 2018.
