Twice As Nice!
Last Saturday night, TJ Wies Contracting was awarded the ASA Midwest Council Outstanding Specialty Subcontractor in Category A, companies with revenue over $12 million, for three out of four years and the fifth time overall. Subcontractors are nominated and judged by past General Contractor of the Year award winners. The criteria for this award includes bid ethics, safety policy and procedures, job-site supervision, communications, scheduling coordination, project relations, administrative procedures, and quality workmanship.
I would like to congratulate all of the other category winners and nominees. Everyone of you are very deserving of your honors. Our congratulations also go out to all of the General Contractor of the Year nominees and the winners, Alberici Constructors, McGrath and Associates, and SITELINES, Inc., as well as ASA Legacy Award winner, Jim Frey of Alberici Constructors, GC Field Employee of the Year, Gary Hart of Interface Construction, and GC Office Employee of the Year, Linda Bernhard of LANDCO Construction.
We are extremely humbled and honored that our General Contractor customers appreciate our ongoing efforts to be the most professional, proactive, and productive subcontractor in the St. Louis region. There are numerous organizations that claim that their greatest asset is their employees. Some actually believe it, and for others it is just a slogan. As far as I am concerned, our office staff and field workforce are without a doubt, the heart, soul, mind, and body of TJ Wies Contracting, PERIOD!
Eight years ago, I challenged our workforce to make us the safest contractor on the jobsite, and boy have they responded. Through their efforts, our entire safety culture has changed. Their dedication to working safe has driven our E-MOD from .93 in 2013 to .54 in 2016. I have also challenged every member of the TJ Wies team to provide our customers with the most productive, proactive, and responsible service on their projects. Once again, our team has stepped up to the plate and hit it out of the park! Winning this award confirms to our entire organization that our hard work and dedication to be the best are worth the efforts. I am proud to accept all of the awards bestowed upon TJ Wies Contracting over the years, but I am even prouder of all of the people who are working their butts off every day for the TJ Wies team. We truly WORK SAFE, WORK HARD AND HAVE FUN!
Thank you to all of our customers for your loyalty, support, and friendship. Keep challenging us to be better tomorrow than we were today. Thank you to all of our suppliers for helping us provide the exemplary service our customers deserve. Finally, thank you to all of my TJ Wies teammates, from new apprentice to general foremen, from receptionist to directors, you are TJ Wies Contracting!
Until next time, WORK SAFE, WORK HARD, AND HAVE FUN!
