DALLAS (Sept. 15, 2015) ― C1S Group, a nationally-renowned full-service professional engineering and construction firm based in Dallas, is now an approved subcontractor through PICS, an international contractor prequalification company. PICS streamlines contractor screening and simplifies the prequalification process for facility owners by ensuring that approved contractors will work in a safe and sustainable manner.
“Many facility owners use PICS to search for potential contractors. These companies look for qualified bidders who are already PICS members to streamline the process of bringing in a new vendor,” said Matt Strong, PE, LEED AP and president of C1S Group. “As an approved PICS subcontractor, potential clients will know that C1S has the correct type of insurance and safety programs in place, as well as a solid safety record. We believe participation in the PICS program will expedite the selection process for building owners choosing a contractor, expanding our business opportunities while providing new clients with confidence in their selection of C1S.”
The PICS approval reflects C1S Groups’ existing commitment to safety. All C1S construction team members are OSHA 30 trained and the company continuously refocuses team members and subcontractors on safety. Ongoing training, weekly safety updates, and onsite safety meetings are all a basic function of how C1S operates.
A global leader in contractor management, PICS offers an international solution to contractor prequalification needs in industries such as chemical, construction, energy, food and beverage, oil and gas, mining, manufacturing, pulp and paper and pharmaceutical. The company offers a variety of products and services to pre-screen suppliers, verify insurance and perform risk-based audits on safety-sensitive contractors.
