Duke Energy named Alberici as their 2019 Safety Supplier of the Year with the presentation of their Supplier Excellence Award. The honor is presented to suppliers whose contributions support Duke Energy’s corporate responsibility sourcing strategies, including safe work practices, local economic impact, supplier diversity, and environmental stewardship.
Since early 2018, Alberici has been providing construction services for Duke Energy at the Linville Hydroelectric Dam in Morganton, N.C. Alberici’s scope of work includes extensive civil construction, earthwork, and structural concrete placement. In total, the Alberici team has performed more than 100,000 safe work hours without a recordable injury at the Linville Dam project.
“Alberici’s work has consistently exemplified Duke Energy’s values by protecting the environment without any preventable environmental events, while protecting workers without any OSHA recordable injuries,” said Paul Draovitch, Senior Vice President, Environmental Health and Safety and Operations Support. “Additionally, Alberici has supported our communities by hiring 75 percent of the workforce for the Linville project directly from the local community.”
