Grand Rapids, Michigan – 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, Inline Electric & Controls, a commercial contractor specializing in electric and controls for residential, commercial and industrial projects.  CD Barnes’ Project Manager, Casey Pinkelman, who was assigned to the Shoreline Orthopaedics project, described his reasoning for choosing Inline Electric for the award, “Time and again Inline has proven to be a leader in their field.  Always providing top notch service and communication.  This project had several unforeseen material delays that Inline dealt with professionally and efficiently, working through the night to complete the project.” Thanks Inline for being a valuable member of the CD Barnes Team!
