Demonstrating the West Coast builder's commitment to safety and excellence, BNBuilders recently was awarded two regional safety commendations by the Associated General Contractors (AGC). BNBuilders is widely known for incorporating effective safety measures across its diverse portfolio of project types, including research, healthcare, laboratory, civic, historic, and commercial. Recognized in both California and Washington State, these two safety awards acknowledge BNBuilders' culture of safety and innovative best practices.
Most recently, BNBuilders was recognized on Oct. 29, 2018, at the AGC of California's 31st Annual Construction Safety Excellence Awards luncheon. BNBuilders took the first place award in the Building Division: Under 400,000 Worker Hours category. The selection process for this award is based on the implementation of a comprehensive safety program, including management involvement, active employee participation, safety training, work site hazard identification and control, and safety program innovation. BNBuilders' Southern California offices have completed numerous projects for private biotech clients as well as higher education, including several projects for The University of California, Los Angeles, most recently, the Geffen Academy.
Earlier this year, BNBuilders also was recognized at the AGC of Washington's Build Washington Awards dinner. The company was awarded a Safety Excellence Award in the General Contractor, 350K–500K Worker Hours category at the May 30, 2018, event. The awards program is the organization's main event to honor the accomplishments of its members each year. The BNBuilders Seattle team is responsible for the $36 million, 90,000-sq.-ft. historic renovation of the beloved and iconic Denny Hall on the University of Washington's (UW's) Seattle campus, one of the oldest structures in Seattle.
