Corporate Responsibility

Culture of Safety 

Our dedication to creating a safe and health-minded working environment ensures that you can be proud of how your project is built, start to finish. Our safety and health team includes a safety director, risk manager, safety coordinators and a certified industrial hygienist to administer our Corporate Safety and Health Program.

Our goal is to maintain an efficient, productive construction effort that incorporates safe working methods and strong safety consciousness among employees, subcontractors and material suppliers. You’ll be glad to know that Rodgers has been recognized many times for maintaining safety and health in the workplace by the North Carolina Department of Labor, the Associated General Contractors (AGC) and the Association of Builders and Contractors (ABC). We are especially proud of more than two million hours worked with no lost-time incidents.

Sustainability 

Like many clients who choose Rodgers, the way you look at the process of design, constructing, maintaining and operating buildings is evolving. You want tools that address the entire lifecycle of your building and meet your sustainability goals. Rodgers offers you the expertise to incorporate LEED®, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, practices throughout preconstruction and construction processes. LEED encourages sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. For more information visit U.S. Green Building Council.

The Rodgers team includes LEED Accredited Professionals who promote the use of environmentally responsible and healthy “green” building materials and practices, ranging from indoor air quality to recycling construction waste.

Inclusion

Rodgers is committed to diversity and inclusion. Our focus is on building sustainable relationships and growing the capabilities of local and historically underutilized business partners, while exceeding our clients’ participation goals. Our Director of Diversity and Community Development leads the charge through an inclusive process that relies on community outreach and engages business owners representing the diverse communities where Rodgers builds. The end result is a stronger community, increased local employment and meaningful construction workforce development.

Rodgers is a partner in the Charlotte Minority Economic Development Initiative (CMEDI), a collaborative program of the Carolinas Minority Supplier Development Council, Inc. and the Charlotte Chamber. CMEDI is designed to build a bridge between the region’s corporate community and minority-owned businesses, with a goal to become one of the most inclusive business communities in the nation.
