NDA
Applications for the NDA's 2014 Environmental Excellence Awards have been mailed to every Association member. This program, designed to promote the demolition industry's commitment to environmental stewardship as outlined in the organization's mission, has been very successful with both members and their clients. These Awards are presented to NDA members that perform projects that have a significant impact on the quality of life in the community where they did the work or developed a product or service that does the same.

This year's Awards will be presented by Environment Committee Chairman John Adamo, Jr. of Adamo Demolition Company in Detroit on Feb. 24, 2014 immediately following President Kroeker's welcoming address at the NDA's 41st Annual Convention at The Mirage in Las Vegas.

Award winners receive two awards, one for their own firm and one to present to the client they did the work for. The NDA's Environment Committee established this program to enlighten our customers, the construction community, and the general public to the major role the industry plays in enhancing the quality of life in the towns and cities where we work. Look for the 2014 Environmental Excellence Awards application forms soon. The applications will also be available online at www.demolitionassociation.com.
