Robinson Construction Company today announced work on the Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial project in Perryville, Missouri has earned the company a national Excellence in Construction® Eagle Award, which will be presented during ABC Convention 2020 in Nashville, Tennessee, on Aug. 18. The EIC awards program is the industry’s leading competition that honors both general and specialty contractors for innovative and high-quality merit shop construction projects.

Frank Robinson, CEO of Robinson Construction, was honored to be involved in this project. “The nature of this project allowed for the owner, contractor, craftsmen, and community to collaborate effectively and pay respect to our nation’s veterans.”

The project included erection of a full-sized replica of the D.C. Vietnam Wall (the granite panels came from the same quarry in Bangalore, India as the original Vietnam Veterans Memorial), construction of a welcome center, military museum, pavilion, and an honor flag memorial.

“The craftmanship of Robinson Construction Company and their hardworking employees continues to raise the bar when it comes to how we define excellence in construction,” said 2020 ABC National Chair Tim Keating, owner and president of R.C. Stevens Construction Co., Winter Garden, Florida. “It’s an honor to recognize these award winners for their respective commitments to building safely, on time and on budget, as well as contribute to the communities in which they work.”

The EIC award honors all construction team members, including the contractor, owner, architect and engineer. The winning projects, selected from entries across the nation, were judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety and cost.

This year's panel included representatives from Building Owners and Managers Association International, Smithsonian Facilities Construction Division, Construction Management Association of America, Engineering News-Record, Design-Build Institute of America and various construction-related firms nationwide.

PeopleReady Skilled Trades is the presenting sponsor of the Excellence in Construction® Awards.

A full list of EIC winners is available on ABC’s website. .

At Robinson Construction, the safety of our employees, their families and the communities in which we operate is our greatest priority. With the seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic and like so many other organizations around the world, we are following the recommendations of the CDC, local and national health organizations, and our own Safety Department to minimize risk and support the health of our employees on our jobsites and in our offices.

As construction is considered an “essential business,” many of our projects continue to operate, and while every day brings new challenges to each of our jobsites, we are maintaining our commitment to making our clients successful even during these most extraordinary times. Our dedicated employees – whether in the office or on our jobsites – are working hard to continue to support our country’s critical businesses.

As a result, we have taken safety precautions such as implementing work-from-home measures where possible, restricting nonessential business travel, implementing more stringent personal hygiene and in-office cleaning practices, eliminating nonessential visitors, among others. On all jobsites we are taking preventative hygiene measures and placing specific emphasis on social distancing while working. Additionally, we have reduced workforce where necessary to decrease the risk of exposure to our field staff and the employees of our customers.

We are continuing to monitor the situation and will make our decisions based on the guidelines and mandates from the CDC, state and local governments where we work, and what we feel is best for our employees, business partners, and customers.
