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.

Robinson Construction was recently able to donate $17,560 to Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial from the proceeds of our inaugural benefit golf tournament, Chip in for Charity. The idea behind Chip in for Charity is to raise money and awareness for groups and charities that are near and dear to Robinson Construction and our community. Thanks in large part to the generosity of our customers and trade and business partners, we were able to make this first tournament at great success! Mark your calendars for the next Chip in for Charity tournament on Monday, September 28, 2020.
