Our Ethics Policy

Every day, it is important that we try to do the right thing at the right time in every aspect of our business. The closer each of us can stay true to that maxim, the better our company will be. We have iden­ti­fied honesty and integrity as strategic anchors of our company, meaning they are one of the con­sis­tent traits that have allowed us to exist and thrive for 109 years. This is not a vague corporate goal, but rather a very personal indi­vid­ual com­mit­ment that is asked of each of us. This com­mit­ment impacts how we earn our client’s trust, the inter­ac­tions with our trade partners, how we treat each other, and how we value the con­struc­tion industry. This is something we need to hold each other account­able for, at all levels. If any employee, client, or trade partner ever has any issue or reason to question the fairness or integrity in any matter, I want to know about it. For that purpose, we insti­tut­ed a 24-hour,7‑day a week hotline and website for your use in report, please note this is handled by a third party firm and your identity is com­plete­ly anonymous if you so desire. We take this respon­si­bil­i­ty very seriously.”
