If you are thinking of building you have likely heard that lumber, fuel, and steel prices have been on the rise. Tariffs have increased steel costs around 10%.

Derrick Building Solutions team members took part in the Derrick Companies annual Safety Day on Thursday, March 29, 2018, at the WITC New Richmond campus.

Derrick Building Solutions LLC implements a proactive safety program to ensure that employees, subcontractors, owners, visitors and the general public are kept safe on or around our projects. We approach safety in the same way we approach a project with a significant amount of pre-planning. We review potential issues, anticipate problems, and identify new potential issues that will require additional staff training. Our team members take part in continual training and have the proper certification in place.
