Project Safety Awards

GBCA has a long-standing commitment to safety in the commercial construction workplace, and our awards programs document the competitive value our members provide our region’s developers and building owners by completing projects safely. GBCA’s Project Safety Awards thank project owners and clients by giving them an award commemorating the safe work performed by GBCA members assigned to their projects.

Important Dates in 2023:

  • Deadline for Project Safety Awards is June 16, 2023.
  • Projects need to be completed between January 1, 2022 and June 13, 2023.
  • GBCA will present the awards at the Safety Awards Reception on July 13, 2023 (registration to open soon!).
