“Being delayed several months, and not having the pleasure of the big dinner gathering, this years’ awards ceremony was anything but conventional. However, the significance of these awards is not reduced, and I am pleased that we were able to continue our tradition of recognizing excellence in the St. Louis area construction industry. ” said ASA-Midwest Council President Richard Russell with Sachs Electric Co. “I would like to congratulate this year’s award winners and nominees for a job well done.”

General contractors were nominated based on bid ethics practice, equitable contract/purchase order provisions, safety policy and practices, payment practices, jobsite supervision, scheduling coordination, subcontractor/vendor relations and administrative procedures/paperwork. Sub-contractors were judged on bid ethics and practice, safety policy and practices, jobsite supervision, communication, scheduling coordination, project relations, administrative procedures/paperwork and quality workmanship. The vendor/suppliers were nominated based on pricing consistency, equitable contract/purchase order provisions, accessibility, timeliness of service/delivery, customer relations and administrative procedures.

The general contractor and subcontractor categories were divided into sub-categories based on sales volume. ASA members nominated and cast votes for the general contractor and service provider/ supplier awards.
