By working directly with our customers, subcontractors, vendors, suppliers and union partners, Bill helps ensure that all contracts and relationships meet appropriate legal guidelines and requirements and that all of the company’s dealings are marked by fairness and integrity.

The company’s Corporate Safety Director reports to Bill, and he is proud of the corporate safety culture that tirelessly strives for Zero Today, for Life. Additionally, every year Bill offers several internal seminars on how to avoid conflicts and claims, comply with contract requirements, and communicate and work with customers to ensure that we do what we say we are going to do when we say we are going to do it.

Bill stays in active and regular contact with leaders throughout the company, and visits branch offices and jobsites, to provide additional oversight and review that procedures are followed and problems avoided.

Talented Attorney
Unfortunately, I believe Mr. Meyer is now working in the business world, continuing to work with his expansive and still expanding knowledge of construction and business issues. Mr. Meyer was always able to understand my issues and work toward identifying cost effective and swift resolution to my problems. Mr. Meyer will fight the battle if that is the right thing to do, but if business concerns require an alternative approach, he is a superb negotiator. If he was ever to return to private practice, I would strongly recommend you look him up.
