COMMITTMENT TO SAFETY
Safety is a top priority at Konell Construction & Demolition Corp. Our policy is to maintain a safe work environment at all times during construction for all project crews, subcontractors, and the public. Inherently, the nature of construction involves many physical hazards, however, we believe that accidents and risks can be avoided if our employees are educated in safe work practices.
We are proud to have been awarded the Associated Builders & Contractors, Inc., STEP Award consecutively since 2011.
Konell Construction & Demolition Corp has a dedicated commitment to safety where we pride ourselves on completing projects safely and without incident.
