No doubt about it, employees are smiling big.

Jacobsen Construction Company (JCC) was honored last night with the prestigious Best of State Award in the Commercial Construction category for an unprecedented fourth year in a row–recognizing the 95-year-old business as a top company and the premier commercial builder in the state.

“The honor we feel with this fourth win is truly incredible—it’s not something we take for granted,” said JCC President Doug Welling. “Being recognized for contributing to a better quality of life in Utah while working for visionary clients who bring education, innovation, recreation and healing to our communities is thrilling—it just doesn’t get any better than that.”

The Best of State Awards were created to recognize people, organizations and businesses that are excelling in their endeavors, and who are improving life in Utah. Award recipients are evaluated on overall achievement, excellence in products, as well as service and industry-changing innovations.

With a four-peat history, there is undoubtedly something special happening at Jacobsen. Welling explains that as they work on projects, employees feel a great motivation to exceed expectations because of their feeling of connection to the good things happening in the communities and cities where they work.

“With Utah continually listed as one of the nation’s top spots to live, work and play,” he said, “we get up in the morning and can’t wait to get to work on our client’s projects.”
