Nearly 60 northwest Indiana construction companies were honored for outstanding performances in safety and project excellence at the Construction Awards Banquet held in Merrillville, Ind. Construction industry firms from throughout the region greatly exceed national averages in safety performance and project outcomes, and the banquet is a celebration of those achievements.

The event is coordinated as a joint effort by the Northwest Indiana Business RoundTable (NWIBRT) and the Construction Advancement Foundation (CAF). NWIBRT's awards focus specifically on safety and CAF's awards focus on multiple areas of construction performance and project outcomes.

Awards were given to a variety of firms based on topics such as safety performance figures; jobsite innovation; collaborative efforts to improve construction; professional development; and more. Representatives of major regional firms like BP, Cleveland-Cliffs, NIPSCO, Cargill, Franciscan Health and many other leading companies were in attendance.

"At the heart of successful construction projects lies an unwavering commitment to safety. Companies in NWI continually strive to improve their safety practices, even amidst the most challenging of circumstances. We are honored to recognize and celebrate these companies, whose dedication to safety not only sets them apart but elevates the entire regional construction industry," said NWIBRT Safety Committee Chair and Cargill Health & Safety Manager, Rick A. Foor.

"It is truly inspiring to witness the ingenuity and superior craftsmanship that is consistently demonstrated in construction projects throughout our region. We take great pride in recognizing and honoring the remarkable achievements of these outstanding craftspeople and contractors. Their dedication and commitment to excellence are evident in their daily work, as they lay the foundation for the future of our communities and serve as leaders for others in the construction industry," said Dewey Pearman, executive director of CAF.
