President reviews 2015, strategic initiatives progress

Kenney, PhilI hope you and your families enjoyed the holiday season as we at F.A. Wilhelm Construction Company closed out a safe and successful 2014. I am thankful for the hard work and commitment all of our employees contribute to the success of our companies. Now it is back to work for us in 2015, and we have a lot of work to do!

We will focus on Leading Indicators throughout the year as part of our safety culture. Reporting on safety concerns, issues and violations we see in the office, fabrication shops and our project sites will support this focus as we drive toward our corporate goal of zero incidents.

We will continue to emphasize our goal of limiting rework in all our daily tasks. The education of all employees on the definition of rework is going very well as we continue to gather cost and schedule data on this subject and see the effects of reducing it.

Project opportunities continue to be plentiful throughout our work area, and we recognize we must perform at our best to take full advantage of these opportunities. That is why the elimination of rework and promotion of safe worksites is so critical – these lead to success for our employees and clients alike.

Service to our clients will remain our daily focus, whether we are in the role of construction manager, general contractor or trade contractor. All of us within the Wilhelm companies realize that this will require flexibility and adjustments to the way we work. We will never allow ourselves to get stuck in the old way of doing things. We will always ask the question “why do we do it this way?” With hard work and an open mind to change, we will continue to improve the services we provide.

I am confident we will share many great successes in 2015 and look forward to working with all of you to make these successes happen. Thanks for all you do to support F.A. Wilhelm Construction.

– Phil
