The N.C. Department of Labor (NCDOL) has certified Choate Construction as a participant in the Building Star Award program during a special ceremony held Feb. 12 at the company’s Charlotte location.
Labor Commissioner Cherie Berry presented company officials with the Building Star Award during the event.
“I am pleased with Choate’s strong commitment to the safety of its employees and this honor is well deserved,” Berry said. “The employee-owned atmosphere at this fine facility is just one demonstration that they are putting their workers first. We are proud to have them in North Carolina.”
The number of builders receiving this recognition is quite small. A search of the NCDOL turned up these other Building Star recipients, located in Wake and Mecklenburg counties:
- Archer Western Contractors (Walsh Construction)
- CFE, Inc. (division of Evans Roofing Company)
- Crowder Construction Company
- Danis Construction Company
- Hendrick Construction, Inc.
- LeChase Construction
- McDonald-York Building Company
- Rodgers Builders, Inc.

The Carolina Star Program is designed to recognize and promote effective safety and health management systems. The Star Program encourages worksites to partner with NCODL’s Occupational Safety and Health Division to proactively prevent fatalities, injuries and illnesses.
