Launched in January, The Leading Edge is a bimonthly newsletter dedicated to updating AGC Houston members about safety issues in the commercial construction industry.
AGC Houston members are supporting this new network, which is an alliance of Houston construction companies, associations and related businesses. The Construction Safety Network meets monthly.
As AGC of America approaches its Centennial Year in 2018, we are taking steps now to make sure the association continues to meet the present and future needs of the industry. As part of that effort, we are asking for your help in gaining a better understanding of the construction industry is and will continue to evolve and the steps we need to make to ensure we continue to help member firms thrive.
Please take a few moments to complete a relatively brief survey we have prepared, and we will gladly enter you into a drawing for an Apple Watch. Please contact Brian Turmail at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-459-0238 for more information.
Each year the AGC Education and Research Foundation offers undergraduate and graduate-level scholarships to students enrolled in ABET- or ACCE-accredited construction management or construction-related engineering programs. The application opened July 1, 2016 and closes November 1, 2016.
Over $10 million in scholarships have been awarded to more than 4,000 students attending colleges and universities across the country. Through endowments made by AGC members and supporters, as well as AGC Chapters, the Education and Research Foundation awards over 100 scholarships each year to students dedicated to pursuing a career in the construction industry.
AGC of America is proud to announce the launch of our 2017 project award competitions! The Alliant Build America Awards (including the Marvin M. Black Partnering Excellence category) and AGC in the Community competitions are now accepting applications.
JE Dunn Construction announced in early September the groundbreaking ceremony held at the Awty International School for a new Early Learning Center building. Designed by Shelpley Bulfinch Architects, the event featured key donors, staff, parents and students.
On Wednesday, September 14, 2016, volunteers from JE Dunn’s Houston office served dinner to and played bingo with the guests at Ronald McDonald House. This bi-monthly event has quickly become a favorite event among the company volunteers who look forward to being able to give the children and parents a little bit of fun and relaxation in an otherwise hectic schedule.
