GLY Construction has received the 2010 AGC-Moss Adams Service to the Community Award for its generous commitment of corporate resources to improve lives.

The firm contributes at least 2 percent of its profits in good times and bad. Despite 2009’s challenging economic environment, GLY gave nearly 5 percent of its pretax profits to youth, educational, arts, health care and other community organizations.

GLY staff give their time and expertise as well. All nine principals and many project managers have leadership roles in at least two community organizations, in addition to the hundreds of hours of volunteer service provided by many GLY employees.

“Moss Adams shares AGC’s core value of improving the quality of life in our communities,” said Elaine Ervin, partner and Washington leader of the Construction Industry Group at Moss Adams.

“We are excited to recognize GLY Construction for their extraordinary commitment to community service and applaud the many construction companies that make our communities stronger, healthier and more enjoyable.” GLY’s recent philanthropic projects include:

Ryther Child Center: GLY led the design and construction of a therapy shelter at the center. Its contributions were provided through NAIOP’s annual Community Enhancement Day.

Habitat for Humanity: GLY provided experienced union crews on a workday to pour concrete flatwork for the Rainier Vista Habitat for Humanity site, including sidewalks, parking pads and patios for a four-unit multiplex. The firm’s participation was critical to meeting a deadline for Habitat buyers to attain certificates of occupancy and qualify for federal stimulus refunds.

New Orleans restoration: GLY volunteers traveled to New Orleans to help build housing in the devastated post-Katrina neighborhood of Holy Cross. The company paid expenses and weekly salaries for a six-person team as part of a group led by Seattle preservationist Kevin Daniels of Daniels Development Co.

GLY performed the demolition and stabilization of a severely damaged home and built new walls, a roof and an addition. In January, Holy Cross was named one of “10 best comeback neighborhoods in the South” by Southern Living magazine.
