The award was formally presented at the 2020 AGC Convention in Las Vegas.
Barton Malow received the 2020 AGC in the Community Award for its Boot Camp, a six-week, employer-driven, pre-apprenticeship program where qualifying participants are introduced to the trades via a mix of on-site and classroom learning.
The 120-hour program includes a historic overview of the construction industry and culture, financial literacy, OSHA and soft skills training, information on apprentice career paths, on-the-job training in concrete, heavy civil, and much more. Every boot camper is assigned a Barton Malow mentor, a skilled tradesperson on the project site, who spends two days per week during the program giving career guidance and hands-on demonstrations to the participants.
Dannis Mitchell, Barton Malow’s Senior Manager of Client and Community Engagement, formally accepted the award in March at the 2020 AGC Convention in Las Vegas.
