BURR RIDGE, Ill. — In recognition for its outstanding work site safety program, ASI Construction in Burr Ridge, Ill. has been awarded the 2020 National Association of Home Builders/Builders Mutual Safety Award For Excellence (SAFE). ASI was recognized in the Siding Contractor Safety Program of the Year category.

The SAFE award honors the achievements of builders and trade contractors who have developed and implemented high-quality construction safety programs and recognizes NAHB member companies, workers and other individuals who have made successful efforts to advance safety in the home building industry.

“This award speaks to our commitment in providing professional, high-quality services with safety always on the top of the list with projects that we do for our clients,” said Jay Andreas, CEO of ASI. “To have NAHB recognize our work is truly an honor for us.”

ASI Construction is a roofing, siding, window and door business with over 30 years of experience. ASI provides exterior remodeling services in residential and commercial along with general contracting. ASI’s commitment to safety is more than just compliance with OSHA regulations and other government rules. According to Andreas, it’s a state of mind that must permeate the entire company, including office and field personnel, management and hourly employees. No business can expect to have good safety performance unless the president, CEO or owner demonstrates through personal conduct and concrete actions that safety is expected and required of all employees.

“Every year, the achievements of the SAFE Award winners seem to get more impressive,” said Juli Bacon, NAHB Construction Safety and Health Committee chair and consultant from Woodinville, Wash. “In this very challenging year, it is no different. Even as pandemic safety took center stage, these companies continued to innovate in the area of traditional job site safety.”

ASI Construction will be recognized during the 2021 International Builders' Show virtual experience — the IBSx. The all-virtual IBSx experience will connect the home building industry together, online. A total of 12 recipients from across the country will be honored.
