The Carolinas AGC bestowed the 2010 Best Specialty Contractor Pinnacle Award on the the WB Moore Company. Established in 1989, WB Moore is a commercial electrical contractor and full-service design engineering firm. Its 250 employees are based in Charlotte and Raleigh.
Judges cited the firm’s innovative approach to design/construct teams and value engineering, reinforcement of safety in the firm’s everyday culture and industry, and contributions to the greater community and more.
Quotes from general contractor customers:
• “WB Moore ‘sets the bar’ for other subcontractors…”
• “Best in the business, from top to bottom…”
• “We actually learn from WB Moore- more than from any other company.”
• “THE ‘go-to company’ for mission-critical work.”
WB Moore prizes safety as well as quality. Any employee is empowered to shut down any job site for safety reasons, no matter their position. Individual responsibility is reinforced in the firm’s everyday culture by ideas such as safety slogan contests, whose winners see their slogan printed on new tee shirts given to every employee each quarter.
All employees participate in each year’s all-day Safety Fest, with health & wellness training in addition to safety topics. And each WB Moore employee is required to participate in 80 hours of miscellaneous training annually, at the company’s expense. WB Moore also cultivates future workers’ interest in the electrical construction. This year’s Career Day was attended by over 125 students from 12 high schools and vocational schools.
The firm’s corporate headquarters in Charlotte earned the North Carolina’s first LEED Platinum Designation Award for new building construction. Read more at www.wbmoore.com.
