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, Elders Electric, a commercial contractor for electric service and contracting for residential, commercial and industrial projects, exemplifies this award.  The entire team at the Commons at Rivertown project nominated Elders for their work on the project saying: “The Elders team has been and continues to be a vital cog of this large machine to deliver a great product to our client in a timely manner.  Your team’s commitment to great communication, foresight, ability to meet and exceed schedule deadlines, safety of your crew and others, quick responses, identifying issues not pertaining to your scope, crew positivity and overall good morale, all contribute to the success of our project and deserves recognition.”  Thank you Elders for being a valuable member of the CD Barnes Team!
