Certifications

because peace of mind is a matter of choice

Garbutt Construction maintains several certifications to accommodate the special requirements of our clients and/or to set ourselves apart from other contractors. These certifications are often issued after a rigorous application process where our company’s financial and legal documents are reviewed to insure corporate stability and adherence to specific standards. This affords a higher level of peace of mind to the owners selecting our firm to deliver construction services.

Some certifications make Garbutt Construction a more attractive alternative to owners especially when federal and state projects are involved and a company with a successful track record is preferred. Garbutt Construction can also satisfy an owner who wants to take advantage of government set-asides or demonstrate a higher level of minority and women-owned participation.

As a certified drug-free workplace, Garbutt Construction jobsites are safer and insurance premiums for workers compensation are lower passing on cost savings to both our firm and clients.
