Shaw Construction honored for helping community
Shaw Construction received the White Ribbon Business Award from the Human Services Council of Mesa County at a breakfast during Colorado Nonprofit Week earlier this month.
The award recognizes a business in Mesa County that gives to the community with financial support and encourages employees to take leadership roles in the community.
Sister Karen Bland, executive director of Catholic Outreach, nominated Shaw for the honor.
“They are so wonderful to work with in terms of getting other subcontractors to participate and do a good job,” Bland said.
Shaw Construction renovated the old City Market building on First Street and Ute Avenue in 2004. The building now houses Catholic Outreach.
In 2007, Shaw also was involved in building St. Benedict Place, a 23-unit, permanent-housing complex for formerly homeless people on disability. Bland estimated Shaw Construction donated $300,000 for these projects.
Company President Steve Meyer said he was honored that his company won the award, especially because the competition was tough.
“Very humbled and flattered that Shaw Construction won that,” Meyer said.
