700 Continuous Days

Benner & White Construction, Inc recently celebrated 700 continuous days without a lost time accident or injury. If we stay on track, we will soon achieve 2 years without a lost time accident or injury. This is a huge accomplishment for us! Everyone in the Company has worked hard to not only improve with safety, but to work as a team safely, and continue to change the safety culture of our company. Benner & White has maintained an EMR well below the industry standard of 1.00 and is currently at 0.759.

In addition, Benner & White is entering their 5th year as partners with OSHA and has worked closely with OSHA representatives to strengthen their safety program. Some other strategies to improve safety at B&W include: ABC STEP (Safety Training & Evaluation Process) recipients for over 15 years, monthly attendance at ABC safety meeting, networking with other safety minded companies, target to have every B&W employee OSHA10 certified nearly complete, weekly Tool Box Talks, weekly jobsite inspections, and constantly seeking feedback to improve the safety program at B&W. Our Goal Is Every Employee Returns Home Safely and we will continue to work hard to make sure this goal is strategically achieved.


St. Gobain Brings Home an Eagle!

Benner & White was pleased to win two awards for excellence at this years ABC East PA awards gala for their work on the 320,000 SF Saint Gobain North American Headquarters project. The first category in “Specialty Finishes Interior/Exterior”, and the second category in “Greenbuild Award”. Saint Gobain is Platinum LEED certified for both the core and shell and the commercial interior.

Our scope included: metal stud framing, drywall, insulation, doors/frames/hardware, acoustical ceilings/clouds/wall panels, & specialty ceilings.  At its peak there were over 100 carpenters working from our company.   It was an honor to complete the project in time for the oldest company in the world to celebrate their grand opening on the day of their 350th anniversary.

We would like to thank every employee at Benner & White. It is because of every hard working man and woman on these sites, and others in our company, that we are able to create buildings worthy of awards like this.  We would also like to recognize Benner & White estimator/project manager James Brown, project Superintendent John Engler and project Foreman Jay Wilson as well as exterior composite panel lead Al Wilson. In addition to all of the Saint Gobain representatives including Tamara Mueller who helped us achieve this milestone. This was truly a team effort and could not have been done without the help of many talented, hardworking and committed people.
