Three Rivers Corporation today announced it has earned a National Safety Pinnacle Award and a national Excellence in Construction® Pyramid Award from Associated Builders and Contractors, which was presented at the 33rd annual Excellence in Construction® Awards during ABC Convention 2023 in Orlando, Florida.
Three Rivers Corporation received a National Safety Pinnacle Award for continued commitment and dedication to jobsite safety and overall safety performance in 2022. The National Safety Pinnacle award is Associated Builders and Contractor’s highest safety honor, and Three Rivers Corporation is one of ten general contractors nationwide to receive the award.
The national Excellence in Construction® Pyramid Award was presented to Three Rivers Corporation for work completed on Northwood University’s Fisher Track following the 2020 flooding event. The EIC awards, presented to 82 of the nation’s top construction projects in 2022, are the construction industry’s leading national competition that honors general and specialty contractors for world-class, safe, and innovative construction projects from across the country.
“At Three Rivers, safety is our topmost priority, and receiving the prestigious Pinnacle Award for the fourth year in a row is attributed to our people and their unwavering dedication and focus to putting safety above all else,” said Jon Lynch, President of Three Rivers Corporation. “Being nationally recognized as one of the top ten performing general contractors is the most significant accomplishment we can receive—the construction industry’s “National Championship” per se—and it is an achievement our team takes tremendous pride in.”
The 2022 National Safety Excellence Award winners were selected from ABC member firms that achieved Diamond, Platinum, or Gold status in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System in 2022, reflective of their 2021 safety performance data. During the selection process, contractors were judged on self-evaluation scores, lost workday case rates, total recordable incident rates, leading indicator use, process and program innovations, and interviews conducted by members of ABC’s National Health and Safety Committee.
“World-class safety and total human health are essential pillars of the culture of ABC member companies—and those priorities are exemplified by these contractors,” said 2023 National Chair of the ABC Board of Directors Milton Graugnard, executive vice president, Cajun Industries LLC, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. “Three Rivers Corporation prioritize taking care of its employees, their greatest asset. Among the NSEA winners are several ABC Top Performers, leading contractor members ranked by work hours, demonstrating the positive impact of implementing strong safety programs.”
The EIC Awards honor every member of the construction team, including the contractor, owner, architect, and engineer. The winning projects are judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, innovation, and safety.
“We are proud to have contributed to Northwood University’s restoration efforts following the flooding in 2020,” added Lynch. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all project partners who played a critical role in making the Fisher Track project a resounding success.”
“The Excellence in Construction Awards are the cornerstone competition in our industry, honoring projects like Fisher Track at Northwood University because the work by the team at Three Rivers Corporation exemplifies the best of the best in construction,” said Milton Graugnard. “This world-class construction project shows the diversity of what the merit shop construction industry builds and how we build projects safely, on time, and on budget. It is an honor to congratulate Three Rivers Corporation for showcasing construction excellence.”
