Qualifying Agent Receives "National Certified Professional Constructor Designation"

Neil T. Delucenay, Vice President,
has received the professional designation for Certified Professional Constructor (CPC). 

He is one of 1,980 practitioners throughout the United States to be certified in a program developed by national construction trade and professional associations under the auspices of the American Institute of Constructors. Similar to the Professional Engineer registration process, the CPC certification is a rigorous two-step qualification program based on experience, education, and written examinations.  The first examinations were offered in the fall of 1996 at approximately 70 universities nationwide.

The voluntary certification program was developed in response to evolvement of the management of construction as a profession during the twentieth century. As the construction industry volume continues to grow into this next century, it will require more and better prepared Professional Constructors to overcome the challenges. One of those challenges is to set high standards of practice and to improve the image of the current and future Constructor. Over the next few years it is expected that several thousand graduates from accredited university degree programs in construction will seek the initial Associate Constructor (AC) designation along with many additional experienced Constructors qualifying for the full Certified Professional Constructor (CPC) title.

Asked about the designation, DeLucenay states that “with the increased complexity of the construction process the management function has assumed a more critical role in the construction project. This has necessitated the requirement for significant improvements in the qualifications of the industry’s personnel, creating the function of a professional constructor separate to the professions of architecture and engineering. The Certified Professional Constructor program provides recognition to this new role together with  a standard of qualification by which third parties can assess the individual manager. In turn this provides a meaningful professional achievement goal for young managers entering the industry, and should serve to attract the talent that construction requires.”

Patterson & Wilder Joins Safety Initiative

by Heather Crews, Public Information Officer, NCDOL The North Carolina Department of Labor recently signed its first partnership with a construction company to promote awareness of workplace safety and health.  Patterson & Wilder Construction, which has offices in Newton Grove, Raleigh and Wilmington, and the department signed the agreement in the fall to foster safety in the construction industry.  The program officially kicked off at the beginning of 2004.  The company specializes in the construction of gas pipelines. "We believe this is the opportunity for Patterson & Wilder and the utilities industry to present the challenges we face," said Gray Lewis, a company vice president. "

Community5This partnership is going to help create an unprecedented line of communication between the industry and NCDOL." As part of the agreement, NCDOL provides safety and health training for subcontractors and employees.  Patterson & Wilder provides training to NCDOL employees on gas pipeline construction. "Patterson & Wilder is involved in many unique operations, such as excavation under rivers," said Les Kafel, NCDOL bureau chief.  "We believe that they are going to be a great source of information for our department and in turn, we will help them protect employees' safety and health." Other aspects of the alliance include workshops, conferences and participation in NCDOL recognition programs. In 2002 the construction industry represented 24 percent of the 169 work fatalities, although the 44 deaths reflected a 13.7 percent drop from the 51 in 2001. "Increasing safety among construction workers has been a top priority for NCDOL," Kafel said.  "This partnership is just another step in that direction."

North Carolina Department of Labor Annual Safety Award

Payne, Jr., and other officials from the Department of Labor were on hand to present awards.  This achievement places Patterson & Wilder in a select group of businesses and public agencies within North Carolina.   Mr. Gray Lewis, Vice President, represented the company at the dinner.  Patterson & Wilder is proud to promote safety in the workplace and in our employees' daily lives.
