Safest General Contractor of the Year: CORE Construction
CORE Construction approaches safety with a holistic, company-wide approach, requiring all superintendents, assistant superintendents, project managers, assistant project managers, interns and laborers work collectively toward the safest workplace possible. Each jobsite is under frequent safety review—both internally and by third-party safety services—using a series of different inspections. Violations are reported and corrected swiftly. All employees receive regular educational resources and trainings to ensure that safety is always at the forefront, and CORE gives monthly safety awards to recognize the safest jobsites.
Using its trademarked construction management program called Operational Excellence, CORE identifies the following as the most important priorities on any project: safety, quality, schedule, cost, subcontractors and client. Daily huddles on every jobsite address each of these key considerations.
The City of Las Vegas Corridor of Hope, a community-focused homeless shelter totaling more than 50,000 square feet, is a recent project that CORE is proud to highlight. The project presented several logistical challenges, including some involving complex safety issues, as the site was an active and fully operational campus throughout construction.
