Crossland Construction Takes Home Two 2023 ABC Oklahoma Excellence in Construction Awards
In the world of construction, excellence is a coveted achievement, and it’s always a proud moment when our dedication to quality and innovation are recognized. In 2023, Crossland Construction’s Tulsa Division had every reason to celebrate as they were presented with two prestigious awards at the ABC Oklahoma Excellence in Construction Awards ceremony. The teams’ exceptional work on the Grand River Dam Authority (GRDA) Administrative Center and Zink Dam Improvements projects earned them top honors, and they also received the coveted STEP Platinum Certificate, showcasing our commitment to safety and excellence.
The GRDA Administrative Center Project:
The Grand River Dam Authority (GRDA) Administrative Center project was a substantial undertaking that exemplified Crossland Construction’s expertise in constructing state-of-the-art facilities. The Administrative Center, located in northeastern Oklahoma, serves as the central hub for the GRDA, a significant player in Oklahoma’s energy landscape.
Crossland Construction’s team faced numerous hurdles throughout this project, including the adherence to strict environmental regulations due to the center’s proximity to the Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees. However, our team demonstrated a strong commitment to overcome any challenges that came their way.
The facility boasts cutting-edge technology, environmentally friendly design features, and a functional layout that enhances productivity.
Zink Dam Improvements:
The recognition received for the work completed on the Zink Dam Improvements project was truly humbling. Completing the Zink Dam project was no small feat. Located on the Arkansas River in Tulsa, Oklahoma, it is a vital component to the region’s flood control system. The project involved crucial upgrades to ensure the dam’s continued effectiveness in safeguarding the local community from potential flooding events.
Our team’s expertise in managing complex infrastructure projects was evident during the Zink Dam Improvements. They worked tirelessly to enhance the dam’s structural integrity, while also considering its environmental impact. The successful completion of this project is a testament to their dedication to both safety and the well-being of the surrounding ecosystem.
The STEP Platinum Certificate:
In addition to their remarkable project achievements, Crossland Construction was also honored with the prestigious STEP Platinum Certificate. The Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP) program, administered by Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), recognizes companies that prioritize safety in their construction practices.
Receiving the STEP Platinum Certificate solidifies Crossland Construction’s unwavering commitment to creating a safe work environment for our employees and subcontractors. Safety is a paramount concern in the construction industry, and this recognition reaffirms the company’s dedication to ensuring that every worker returns home safely at the end of each day.
Crossland Construction’s impressive double win at the 2023 ABC Oklahoma Excellence in Construction Awards is a testament to our unwavering commitment to excellence and safety. With an EMR rating of .55, Crossland Construction is one of the safest contractors in the country. What makes this statistic even more remarkable is that it reflects the exceptional safety despite the substantial amount of work we self-perform.
Congratulations to all of the Crossland Construction crews!
