The Associated General Contractors of Colorado (AGC/C) honored its members’ commitments to workplace safety and environmental excellence at the 32nd annual Safety & Environmental Awards last month at The Westin Westminster. In correlation with the national construction Safety Week that takes place each May, this event attracted more than 330 construction industry professionals and guests to recognize winners in three different categories of awards that were presented to local general contractors and specialty contractors.

“Our members understand the importance of a strong commitment to safety culture and environmental awareness in construction, where job-sites are constantly evolving, and new hazards emerge almost daily,” commented Michael Gifford, president and CEO of AGC/C. “Although we formally recognize their efforts only once a year, we honor their daily dedication to send each employee home safe every day.”

Brad Gassman, AGC/C’s Safety and Environmental director, presented the awards and introduced representatives from the various programs to provide the latest safety and environmental updates to attendees. The first award category recognized firms in the Colorado Stormwater Excellence Program (CSEP), which is the first regulatory agency-recognized, self-policing stormwater compliance management program in the nation. Companies are ranked as either Participating or Qualified, based on performance data. AGC/C’s latest Participating companies moved to Qualified status in February 2019. Adolfson & Peterson Construction, The Beck Group, Brinkman Construction, Fiore and Sons, Inc., Fransen Pittman General Contractors, GH Phipps Construction Companies, Golden Triangle Construction, Inc., Haselden Construction, LLC, Hyder Construction, Inc, Milender White Construction Co.., PCL Construction, Swinerton Builders, and Waner Construction Co, Inc. were all honored as Qualified Companies. Maura McGovern, Unit Manager of the Clean Water Compliance Unit of the Water Quality Control Division, was present to provide CSEP updates.
