American Classic Construction Awarded For Outstanding Performance

Grand Rapids, Michigan, September 19, 2022 – In 2016 CD Barnes Construction created an award program to recognize subcontractors who go above and beyond their everyday duties, and exemplify the best in performance, quality, and communication to ensure the success of a project for the West Michigan general contractor. The program, coined “Key to Our Success,” signifies the direct relationship between the efforts of the subcontractor and the general contractor. CD Barnes Construction would not be what it is today without the commitment of our long-standing partnerships with our subcontractors.

The most recent award winner is American Classic Construction (ACC), a roofing and siding company with offices in Bailey and Greenville, Michigan. CD Barnes’ Project Superintendent, Aaron Roberts is the one who nominated ACC for their work performed on the Milestones Early Learning project in Wyoming. When asked why he chose ACC, Aaron remarked on their increased dedication to safety on the project. “American Classic’s commitment to being safe on our jobsites has improved ten-fold. I have to hand it to them for stepping up their game when it comes to safety,” said Aaron. Another reason he chose ACC was their willingness to make adjustments on the fly for whatever reason. “The ACC team was incredibly flexible to doing what needed to be done in order for the project to be completed on-time,” Aaron explained. Kudos to American Classic Construction!
