Contractors Honored for Socially Responsible Business Practices
The Portland City Council recently honored contractors for socially-responsible business practices, presenting company representatives with glass trophies for “Business Equity Performance” – achieving minority hiring goals on public projects.
“These contractors have been doing great work,” Mayor Charlie Hales said. “We obviously have to have a reciprocal understanding with the construction industry about getting this work done the right way. We really appreciate you all for being good partners with us.”
Three firms were recognized in the small project category ($200,000 to $10 million), one Oregon-Columbia Chapter member:
- Baseline Industrial Construction of Portland, for its work at the BES’ Alder Creek Fish Passage project
One construction manager-general contractor was honored in the large project category ($10 million and above):
- Stacy & Witbeck of Portland, for PBOT’s Southwest Moody Avenue road and streetcar track relocation
Three contractors were recognized for efforts aiding the Portland Housing Bureau:
- LMC Inc. of Tualatin, for two projects – the Otesha Place apartment complex and Greenview Apartments
- R&H Construction of Portland, for the Kehillah Housing project
- O’Neill/Walsh Community Builders of Portland, for the Beech Street Community Apartments
One contractor was honored for its work on a Portland Development Commission project:
