Black Construction’s national award a first for a Guam corporation

HAGÅTÑA, Guam (Marianas Business Journal, March 11, 2014) – After years of Guam construction industry submissions to the Associated Builders and Contractors national awards, a Guam company has received the region's first U.S. national level recognition.

Black Construction Corp. received an Excellence in Construction award in the "Institutional under $5 million" from ABC for its general contracting work on the $1.8 million Kosrae State Correctional Facility.

The project was completed on April 16, 2013 and recognized locally, which qualified Black Construction to submit for ABC's prestigious and competitive national level awards.

According to a March 11 release to the Journal, the jailhouse remained functional during the total construction period.

Leonard K. Kaae, senior vice president and general manager, expressed the company's pride and gratitude at the award to the Journal. Project Manager Joselito Gutierrez accepted the award on behalf of Black in Hawaii in February.
