The project consisted of a full renovation of an existing courtroom that was completed during off-hours in a functioning courtroom. To complete this renovation two weeks ahead of schedule and on budget, the management team and subcontractors maintained a high level of communication and coordination throughout the project’s duration. Earlier this year, the Fairfax County Department of Public Works and Environmental Services presented HITT with an Award of Excellence for building design and construction for this project.
In addition, HITT won the 2013 Washington Contractor Safety Award. This is the second year in a row that AGC recognized HITT’s ongoing commitment to safety.

The safety department at HITT has developed and implemented policies, procedures and a training program designed to increase the safety awareness of everyone associated with construction projects. Since 1989, HITT’s Experience Modification Rate (EMR) has not been higher than 0.76. HITT’s current EMR is 0.64 which is among the lowest in the industry.
