Signing ceremony ensures safety is a top priority among CDIA project partners


Rodgers and joint venture partner Turner officially signed a partnership agreement, as Turner Rodgers, with the North Carolina Department of Labor on site at the Concourse A Expansion project for Charlotte Douglas International Airport. The agreement creates a collaboration among state government and the construction firms to ensure the safest possible work environment, with scheduled visits from NC DOL and commitments from all parties to provide training and regular assessments for workplace safety and health.

The signing ceremony included officials from Rodgers, Turner, Flatiron and Blythe, all contractors working on construction at the airport, as well as inspectors and representatives from the Occupational Safety and Health Division of the NC DOL. Commissioner of Labor Cherie Berry addressed the crowd, stressing the importance of the commitment from all project partners to provide a safe workplace.

The airport expansion project will add nine new gates and over 230,000 square feet in an iconic structure with a barrel roof and extensive curtainwall to maximize natural light within the building. “This is a unique project and requires a unique team,” said Eric Reichard, Chief Operations Officer for Rodgers. “We are dedicated to ensuring that each person working on this project goes home safely every day to their families and loved ones.”
