AGC of California and several of its members were recognized for their many accomplishments achieved over the last year.

“AGC congratulates and is pleased to recognize our members for their outstanding contributions within the industry,” says AGC of California CEO Tom Holsman.

The week began with AGC of California receiving the Enterprise Chapter of the Year Award for the highest volume and number of sales for the Enterprise Fleet Program. As one of the chapter’s exclusive member discount programs, the Enterprise Fleet Program saves contractors on average $1,000 per vehicle purchased.

Other featured events included the Marvin M. Black Excellence in Partnering Awards Breakfast; Willis Safety Awards Breakfast, also known as the Construction Safety Excellence Award (CSEA); and the AON Build America Awards Dinner.

The CSEA Awards were bestowed upon several member companies that excelled at safety performance in the categories of building, heavy, highway, municipal and specialty.

In the building division, Blach Construction Co. received third place in the 250,001-450,000 work hours category, and Flintco Pacific, Inc. took first place in the 1,250,001-4 million work hours category. Blois Construction, Inc. received first place, and Syblon Reid took second in the 100,001-300,000 work hours for Heavy Division. In the Specialty Division, Underground Construction Co., Inc. was awarded second place in the 100,000-300,000 work hours category, and Granite Construction Co. took home second place in the over 1 million work hours category for the Highway Division.

Honoring AGC members who build the nation's most impressive construction projects, the AON Build America Award winners included C.C. Myers, Inc., who took home the Merit Award in the Highway & Transportation Renovation category for their work on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge (SFOBB) Bypass Detour project.

Next year’s annual convention will take place March 14-17, 2012 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Honolulu.
