ISC Earns National Spotlight for Excellence in Construction
Baton Rouge, LA — ISC announced their performance on the Marathon Garyville 10-22 Substation Installation Project in Garyville, Louisiana earned a national Excellence in Construction (EIC) Award. The EIC awards program is the industry’s leading competition that honors contractors for innovative and high-quality merit shop construction projects.
ISC completed the new 10-22 Substation Installation Project for Marathon during their Substation Replacement Program initiative (SRP). Mature equipment was replaced with an efficient, modern substation to maximize the capacity and production of the units. In total, ISC was able to complete the project safely, under budget and on schedule with zero recordable incidents.
“We are honored to receive our 35th Excellence in Construction award which represents our dedication to our customers and our quality of work,” said Jerry Rispone, Co-Founder and CEO of ISC. “For over 30 years, ISC has maintained a solid foundation, ensuring that we will continue to produce the most-skilled workforce – providing the safest, most optimal results for our customers.”
The EIC award honors all construction team members, including the contractor, owner, architect and engineer. The winning projects, selected from entries across the nation, were judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety and cost.
“The craftsmanship of ISC and their hardworking employees continues to raise the bar when it comes to how we define excellence in construction,” said 2020 ABC National Chair Tim Keating, owner and president of R.C. Stevens Construction Co. “It’s an honor to recognize ISC for their respective commitments to building safely, on time and on budget, as well as contribute to the communities in which they work.”
