AGC of California (AGC) welcomed more than 300 attendees at its virtual Installation & Awards Gala on Thursday, January 28, 2021. The prestigious black-tie event kicked off a great start to 2021 with hundreds gathering safely behind their screens and celebrating momentous successes in a challenging year.
“Throughout 2020, our member companies gave us a lot to celebrate and be grateful for. As an industry, it is only right that we pause and reflect on the important work construction does every day. COVID-19 has had major impacts, but the resiliency of our state shined, and it started with construction,” said Peter Tateishi, CEO, AGC. “Congratulations to each of our award winners!”
At the virtual Gala, AGC also hosted an “Oscar-style” awards celebration, recognizing excellence in the industry with the prestigious Construction Education Friend Award, Safety Professional of the Year Award, Achievement Awards, and Constructor Awards.
Congratulations to the following 2021 award winners:
