Voluntary reductions in diesel emissions earns Rodgers the “Air Keeper” award


AirKeeperAwardRodgers project sites put safety and health first. Because health is also a first priority for our client Novant Health, they asked us to participate with the nonprofit organization, Clean Air Carolina, in a program to reduce diesel emissions on the Matthews Women’s Center project in the interest of cleaner air. Throughout construction, the project team monitored the use of diesel-powered equipment, and reduced or eliminated the time for idling of equipment by installing “No Idling” signs and tracking hours of use on the project. As a result, Rodgers and our joint venture partner R. J.
