2018 EIC Awards

2018 Excellence in Construction Presentation

2018 Excellence in Construction Photos     

Winners of ABC of West Tennessee’s 2018 EIC awards competition, along with recipients of ABC's annual safety awards and Beam Club, were recognized recently at a gathering of 200 individuals at the Esplanade in Cordova.

 

The EIC program highlights the innovation, quality and vision of a project's entire construction team — general and specialty contractors, architects, engineers, owners and others. Entries were evaluated on criteria such as complexity, attractiveness, safety, unusual challenges, completion time, workmanship, innovation and budget.

 

Awards of Excellence were given to the projects receiving the highest ratings in specialty contracting, such as electrical, mechanical, waterproofing and exteriors, as well as general contracting in such markets as commercial, healthcare, industrial and institutional.

 

Awards of Merit also were presented.

 

The association's Safety awards are presented annually to West Tennessee contractors who have had low rates of on-the-job injuries and who have demonstrated the highest commitment to safety and safety training.

 

ABC's Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) awards recognize member companies who employ effective safety practices on their job sites, based on 20 key elements of contractor safety programs such as management commitment, pre-planning for safety on job sites, safety training and resources committed to safety. The STEP process, which was developed and written by contractors, is a tool designed to objectively benchmark and evaluate safety programs, policies, procedures and training.

This year the West Tennessee Chapter presented 11 STEP awards. Two of the highest levels were achieved by, Chris Woods Construction achieving Diamond Level and Yates Construction achieving. Platinum Level.  Acoustic & Specialties, LLC, Grinder Haizlip Construction, Mechanical Systems, Smith Doyle and Tradesmen achieved Gold Level.  Brooks & Mazzola, LaGasse Construction, McKinney Drilling and Wagner General achieved Silver Level.

 

ABC’s Beam Club is a nationally recognized club and was established to recognize ABC’s top membership recruiters for their commitment to growing the association. By recruiting five new members, ABC members are automatically enrolled in the Beam Club. Members receive one point for each new member recruited. Beam Club activity is ongoing from year to year, with members’ point totals continually accruing and advancing members to the next Beam Club award level.

This year, the West Tennessee Chapter awarded a Presidential Level Award to Jonas Bari (Compressed Air Technologies), for recruiting 26 new members.  Four Merit Level Awards were given to Jamie Linkous – 12 new members (Linkous Construction Company), Joel Thomas – 12 new members (Montgomery Martin Contractors), Roger Sigler – 11 new members (Flintco, LLC), Ron Smith – 10 new members (LaGasse Construction).

 

The event was sponsored by ABC Insurance Trust, Farrell Calhoun, Horne LLP, Insight Risk Management, Lowes Home Improvement, Pantera Global Technology and People Ready.
