KANSAS CITY, MO In recognition of performance demonstrating a vigorous, persistent commitment to safety initiatives, Garney has been awarded the 2015 Target Outstanding Project Safety award. Garney accepted this award from the Southeastern Construction Owners & Associates Roundtable (SCOAR), an organization dedicated to fostering innovative thinking on issues related to industrial construction and business performance.
Garney's safety performance was recognized by working 122,000 working hours without a safety incident on the V.C. Summer Offsite Water Treatment System in Jenkinsville, South Carolina.
