Brown & Root is pleased to announce that work on the Veolia Burnside Converter Replacement & Capital Expansion Project in Burnside, Louisiana has earned the company a National Excellence in Construction® Eagle Award, which will be presented during ABC Convention 2020 in Nashville, Tennessee, on August 18. The EIC awards program is the industry’s leading competition that honors both general and specialty contractors for innovative and high-quality merit shop construction projects.
A huge thanks to Brown & Root team members for their dedication and focus. We are also grateful for our suppliers and partners – many of whom are fellow Associated Builders and Contractors members who share our dedication to the highest standards in safety and execution.
The Brown & Root team, along with our valued partners at Veolia, overcame historically high river levels, complex logistical considerations, and a tight timeline to execute this complex project. The job was completed within schedule, with 285,195 work hours and zero recordable or lost-time injuries.
“The craftmanship of Brown & Root and their hardworking employees continues to raise the bar when it comes to how we define excellence in construction,” said 2020 ABC National Chair Tim Keating, owner and president of R.C. Stevens Construction Co., Winter Garden, Florida. “It’s an honor to recognize these award winners for their respective commitments to building safely, on time and on budget, as well as contribute to the communities in which they work.”
The EIC award honors all construction team members, including the contractor, owner, architect, and engineer. The winning projects, selected from entries across the nation, were judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety, and cost.
This year’s panel included representatives from Building Owners and Managers Association International, Smithsonian Facilities Construction Division, Construction Management Association of America, Engineering News-Record, Design-Build Institute of America, and various construction-related firms nationwide.
