Consigli Receives Prestigious Safety Award from Navy

KITTERY, ME – Consigli Construction Co., Inc. was recently awarded the Department of the Navy’s top safety award. The Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Mid-Atlantic, Public Works Department (NAVFAC MIDLANT, PWD) Maine FY 2011 Safety Award was given to Consigli for the firm’s outstanding safety awareness during construction of the Consolidated Emergency Control Center at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.

“This is a notable achievement, highly competitive and presented only to those companies which have demonstrated a corporate and proactive safety culture to protect the most valuable resource of all – our people,” said B.L. Weinstein, CDR, CEC, USN Public Works Officer.

Meeting the highest standards of the Navy, NAVFAC MIDLANT and PWD Maine, Consigli’s project team worked over 383 consecutive days totaling 77,613 man-hours with zero accidents or safety related incidents and received five monthly FEAD safety inspections with zero citations.

The team worked around a fully-functional naval base and stringent government standards for safety, quality, security, schedule and budget to build the new 25,000 square-foot Consolidated Emergency Control Center.  The Consolidated Emergency Control Center is a facility which centralizes and manages communications and resources in the event of an emergency such as hurricanes, flooding, ice storms, etc.

“This is a prestigious award given only once a year to the contractor who exhibits exemplary safety performance on the Naval Base.  We are very proud of our project team and commend them for their attention to detail in managing the physical risk on this important project,” said Dan Della-Guistina, Consigli’s Safety Director.
