2nd annual list recognizes 147 private companies that put purpose before profit
(HOUSTON), December 7, 2021 – Construction Concepts has been named to the Inc. 2021 Best in Business list in the Construction category. Inc.’s Best in Business Awards honor companies that have gone above and beyond to make a positive impact.
The list, which can be found in the Winter issue of Inc. magazine (on newsstands December 14), recognizes small- and medium-size privately held American businesses that have had an outstanding influence on their communities, their industries, the environment, or society as a whole.
“We are honored and humbled to be among the companies recognized with this award,” said Joshua Weisman, CEO of Construction Concepts. “Giving back to our community has been a cornerstone of our company culture from day one. When we established our charity initiative, BLDiT (Building Lives and Dream in Texas), we wanted to do more than build buildings, we wanted to build our community by serving others in need and inspiring others to join us. We are incredibly grateful for the many people that continue to help us ‘build lives and dreams in Texas.’”
Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc., says, “What began for us during the pandemic as an effort to showcase companies that were helping the community has grown into a recognition of social, environmental, and economic impact. The companies on this year’s list are changemakers with heart – and they’re pouring the best of their business into the people and communities around them.”
Rather than relying on quantitative criteria tied to sales or funding, Inc.’s editors reviewed the companies’ achievements over the past year and noted how they made a positive difference in the world. They then selected honorees in more than 49 different industries – from finance to software to engineering to fashion, and more – and in age-based and revenue-based categories. The applicant pool was extremely competitive, with around 2,700 entries and an acceptance rate in the low single digits – a huge success for these honors in the list’s second year. Honorees for gold, silver, bronze, and general excellence across industries and categories are featured online at inc.com/best-in-business.
