Sundt Receives Safety Excellence Award from San Diego AGC
SAN DIEGO (Feb. 8, 2017) – The San Diego chapter of the Associated General Contractors awarded Sundt Construction, Inc. (www.sundt.com) the Construction Safety Excellence Award in the Two Million to Four Million Hour Class, Highway Division.
The award includes safety statistics for the entire company and qualifies Sundt to win the Highway Division at the AGC of America National Judging and to compete for the AGC Grand Award, given each year to the nation’s safest construction company.

“Everything we do is a choice and all choices have consequences for ourselves and others,” said San Diego Area Safety Manager Paul Sprecco. “We are honored to have our company recognized for our commitment to safety and the safe choices our employee-owners make every day.”
