Call for Applications: Prime Construction Contractors Invited to Apply for ASA’s 2017 National Construction Best Practices Awards
ALEXANDRIA, Va.—The American Subcontractors Association is now accepting applications for its 2017 National Construction Best Practices Awards. These awards recognize prime contractors who subcontractors say are the best to work for—those who are committed to best business practices like safety management, prompt payment, prompt processing of change requests and claims, and effective project scheduling and coordination.
Prime contractors and specialty trade contractors that have signed, within the past year, a contract directly with a construction owner under which it performs construction services are eligible to apply for these awards.
The criteria include the use of a standard subcontract whose provisions substantially reflect the best practices incorporated into the ASA-endorsed ConsensusDocs 750 Standard Agreement Between Constructor and Subcontractor, as well as highly favorable evaluations from three specialty trade contractors, based on 20 project management factors. Each applicant must supply three sealed business-practices recommendations from specialty trade contractors that have worked for it in the past year, along with a copy of its standard subcontract with its application. A construction attorney will evaluate the standard subcontract, and the ASA Task Force on Ethics in the Construction Industry will evaluate the recommendations from specialty trade contractors. Prime contractors that use the ASA-endorsed ConsensusDocs 750 contract form as their standard subcontract automatically pass the subcontract evaluation.
The application deadline is Nov. 3, 2017, and the application fee is $495. Awards will be presented during ASA’s annual convention, SUBExcel 2018, which will take place Feb. 28-March 3, 2018, in Tempe, Ariz. Information about these awards is located under “Education & Events” on the ASA Web site.
Founded in 1966, ASA amplifies the voice of, and leads, trade contractors to improve the business environment for the construction industry and to serve as a steward for the community. The ideals and beliefs of ASA are ethical and equitable business practices, quality construction, a safe and healthy work environment, and integrity and membership diversity.
