Daniel Island Mixed-Use Celebrates Zero Lost Time Injuries

December 30, 2016

Choate personnel and subcontractors alike recently celebrated clocking 100,000 man-hours with zero lost time injuries on the Daniel Island Mixed-Use project. The achievement further demonstrates Choate’s unwavering commitment to worker safety, visually represented through the OneLife safety identity.

The impressive 597,523-SF site is constantly bustling with multiple subcontractors and laborers each day to bring the multi-level parking deck and mixed-use building space to Daniel Island in Charleston, SC. Over 75 workers enjoyed a catered lunch to celebrate the noteworthy achievement. Each team member received a commemorative t-shirt featuring the proposed name of the site, “Central Island Square,” as well as logos from all partners:  owner Faison, architect Studio Fusion, engineer Thomas & Hutton, and general contractor Choate Construction Company and the OneLife safety identity. The drone photo (shown below) captured all of the dedicated team members that afternoon.

Overseeing daily on-site coordination of the project, Superintendent Richard McMahon said, “It is each individual’s job to ensure their own safety to protect their legacy; it is our responsibility to enforce and implement these safety regulations each and every day. The 100,000 man-hours with zero lost time injuries accomplishment is an encouraging safety milestone to the team as construction continues to progress.”

Set to complete Spring 2018, the mixed-use development brings continued growth and a communal gathering space to the master-planned community of Daniel Island.
