National Maintenance Agreements Policy Committee, Inc. (NMAPC) has awarded Barton Malow Company the Bronze Star for logging more than 200,000 safe work hours on the Ultium Cells 2 Battery Plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee. The company also earned the Certificate of Merit for logging more than 100,000 safe work hours on the Cleveland-Cliffs, Inc. plant in Burns Harbor, Indiana.
Barton Malow Company accepted the honors at the 22nd annual Zero Injury Safety Awards (ZISA) Gala on Thursday, October 20, in Washington, D.C. This is the fifth-consecutive year Barton Malow Company has earned at least one ZISA recognition.
Barton Malow is providing construction services on Ultium 2 through an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) approach for the new 2.8 million-SF lithium-ion electric vehicle battery cell manufacturing facility. Team members and construction partners gathered this past September to recognize the one million work hour milestone, occurring just over a year since construction began. Once fully operational, the plant will create 1,300 new high-tech jobs to support the production of battery cells for GM’s Ultium Platform-based EVs, including the Cadillac Lyriq.
Established in 2000 by NMAPC, ZISA is an annual recognition program celebrating the union contractors, labor representatives, and owner-clients who work together in a tripartite fashion to create injury-free job sites. Today, ZISA is recognized nationwide as union construction and maintenance’s premier award for industrial safety.
