Companies were evaluated on overall performance, delivering quality services on time, working collaboratively to reach milestones, and meeting or exceeding project expectations relative to safety, construction, performance, technical expertise, and environmental compliance.
Concept received high praise from Sunnie Scott, a senior expeditor with Bechtel who said, “I’m always impressed with the knowledge, responsiveness and patience your team demonstrates time after time in getting purchase orders executed, documentation submitted, and panels fabricated in a timely manner.”
Hundreds of candidates were considered, and Concept expressed its understanding of the significance of the Small Business Supplier Award. “Bechtel is a leading vendor for both the public and private sectors and works with literally thousands of companies throughout the year,” said Michael Gurney, Concept’s CEO. “Our team takes pride in meeting high standards for quality and exceeding client’s expectations. Their performance helped us garner this recognition.”
“The support of our subcontractors, suppliers, and vendors is critical to the work we do.
