“More than one-third of a project’s score is rated on safety. ABC members place high value on having and maintaining a safe job site. The EIC awards are a testament to their dedication to safety—making ABC members America’s Best Contractors,” Russell Hamley, ABC Greater Houston President, said.
This event, established in 2000, recognizes outstanding projects in the commercial and industrial construction industry. Projects are evaluated by local Owners, Architects, and Engineers on: safety, execution of design, craftsmanship, attention to detail, installation, and other considerations. The award not only praises remarkable feats in the construction industry, but also the project’s safety record.
Many of the submitted projects are completed with no recordable injuries, a testimony to ABC Greater Houston members’ commitment to a safe and skilled workforce. Award finalists also have the opportunity to submit their projects to compete in the National ABC EIC Awards Competition held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in March 2017.
