HITT Named to ABC’s Top-performing U.S. Commercial and Industrial Construction Contractors List
HITT Contracting Inc. has been ranked #1 on Associated Builders and Contractors’ 2019 Mid-Atlantic Top Performers list, which recognizes ABC member contractors’ achievements in safety, quality, diversity, and project excellence ranked by work hours, with special designations identified.
Published as a supplement to Construction Executive magazine, the list identifies the Top 150 Performers, Top 50 Performers with Special Designations, and Top 20 Performers by Region.
“ABC Top Performers are leading the way in the merit shop construction industry, where diverse participants are constantly striving to achieve the highest levels of personal and company performance in an environment of fair and open competition,” said Michael Bellaman, president and chief executive officer of ABC. “These rankings will help the industry identify contractors like HITT Contracting that have achieved world-class safety performance, demonstrated their commitment to their workers and their communities and earned recognition for project excellence and diversity.”
To be eligible, HITT demonstrated world-class safety performance by implementing ABC’s STEP safety management system, which makes the top-performing contractors up to 680 percent safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average, according to the ABC 2019 Safety Performance Report. The Top Performers were ranked by size based on the number of hours worked in 2017, as reported in their 2018 STEP applications. HITT currently holds a Gold STEP designation and anticipates earning a Platinum designation for 2019.
“Safety is our number one priority and we are honored to be recognized by ABC as the top performer in the Mid-Atlantic region,” said HITT Co-President Jeremy Bardin. “This recognition demonstrates our commitment to maintaining the highest safety standards to ensure every person who comes in contact with our work remains safe.”
