Associated General Contractos fo Washington Recognizes Turner for Multiple Awards

May 16, 2016

The Associated General Contractors of Washington recently recognized Turner’s office in Seattle with multiple Build Washington Awards, as well as honors for Outstanding Community Service, Excellence in Safety, and recognition for company leaders.

Turner took Best Private Project over $100 million for Amazon Phase VII, a 12-story office building and part of the company’s larger South Lake Union headquarters expansion, as well as Best Public Project over $100 million for the Sound Transit U240 Capitol Hill Station, which serves a bustling commercial and residential neighborhood with three separate above-ground station entrances.

“We are all humbled and excited by the extensive recognition we received from the AGC,” said Chris Killian, vice president and general manager of the Seattle office. “The Amazon Phase VII and Sound Transit Capitol Hill Station projects represent many years of commitment, hard work and professionalism by the project teams and we couldn’t be more proud of the teams’ performance.”

In addition to those project recognitions, the office earned an Outstanding Community Service award, which celebrates their participation in last year’s Paint the Town Blue Founders’ Day of Service. During that one effort, working with seven organizations, more than 100 volunteers donated a collective 500 hours and $34,000. 

And, in recognition of their best safety year yet, the Seattle office earned a Safety Excellence Award in the 500,000 hours category – in fact achieving 716,500 safe self-performed hours. “Our team’s commitment to, and the early adoption of the Building L.I.F.E. philosophy has drastically changed the safety culture in our Seattle office,” added Chris. “That effort has produced safety numbers never seen here previously. We now await the results of  the Grand Safety Award, which is given at the end of this month at the AGC Build Washington Awards. I think we have a very good shot at winning.”

Also as part of this year’s awards, Susan McCants, project manager, became the first woman to earn the distinction of Project Manager of the Year since the inception of the award at the AGC of Washington and Jeremy Taylor earned the distinction of Safety Professional of the Year.?
