Bridgewater, MA Callahan Construction Managers (Callahan) was ranked #20 in the Northeast region on Associated Builders and Contractors’ (ABC) 2019 Top 20 Performers list, which recognized ABC member contractors’ achievements in safety, quality, diversity and project excellence ranked by work hours.

Published as a supplement to Construction Executive magazine, the lists identify the Top 150 Performers, Top 50 Performers with Special Designations and Top 20 Performers by Region.

“Callahan is honored to not only be recognized as a STEP Gold safety award recipient, but also as a Top 20 Performer in the Northeast region by ABC,” said Tim LeBlanc, director of safety at Callahan Construction Managers. “This award is a testament to our commitment to safety and performance at each and every project.”

“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 Callahan 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, Callahan 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. Callahan received a 12th consecutive STEP award and Gold status at the 2019 STEP Awards ceremony earlier this year.
