TJ Wies Contracting was recently presented with Safety and Quality Excellence Awards at the Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry’s (AWCI) Annual Convention in National Harbor, Maryland. The Awards Brunch was held on April 25th.
AWCI is an international association with over 2,400 members. The membership consists of manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, and contractors throughout North America.
AWCI presented TJ Wies Contracting with the 2019 Excellence in Construction Safety Award – “for the greatest overall increase in safety, training, and awareness among AWCI member companies with between 500,000 and 1,000,000 man-hours in 2018.” This year marks the third time that TJ Wies Contracting has been presented with an Excellence in Safety Award by AWCI; other years include 2015 and 2017.
In addition to the Excellence in Safety Award, AWCI also awarded TJ Wies Contracting with the 2019 Excellence in Construction Quality Award in the Drywall category for work on the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial – Museum of Westward Expansion & Visitor Center, now referred to as Gateway Arch National Park. The Excellence in Quality Award “recognizes excellence in construction quality in the face of complicated and challenging projects.” TJ Wies Contracting received Excellence in Quality Awards in 2010 and 2011 as well, for Cardinals Kids Cancer Center and River City Casino, respectively.
Tim Wies stated, “I have always felt that safety, quality, and productivity were not mutually exclusive. Having now won these prestigious awards three times each, the industry has acknowledged what I have known from the start – a safe company can produce quality work while still being productive. Thank you to AWCI for the recognition and thanks to everyone on Team TJ Wies Contracting.”
