Black Construction wins Eagle Award

The Eagle Award is the highest award given in each category in the National Excellence in Construction competition.  Black Construction’s project submission for its “Guam Commercial Port Improvement Project – Facility Expansion” won the Eagle Award.

The Excellence in Construction Awards program is the industry’s leading competition, developed to honor both general and specialty contractors for innovative and high-quality merit shop construction projects. The award honors all construction team members, including the contractor, owner, architect and engineer. The winning projects, selected from entries submitted from across the nation, were judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety and cost.

Landscape Management Systems, Inc, and Custom Mechanical Corp (CMS) win National Safety Excellence Award. 

The 2015 National Safety Excellence Award winners were selected from ABC member firms that achieved Diamond, Platinum and Gold status in ABC’s Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP) in 2015. During the selection process, they were judged on self-evaluation scores, lost workday case rates, total recordable rates, leading indicator use, process and program innovations and video interviews conducted by members of ABC’s National Environment, Health & Safety Committee.

STEP is the standard for developing world-class safety programs in construction and is designed to help both large and small contractors evaluate every aspect of their corporate safety and health program and identify opportunities for improvement. In 2015 ABC published its first Safety Performance Report, which documented that the average STEP Diamond company is 720 percent safer than average, based on its total recordable incidence rate compared to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ average for the entire industry.
