ST. LOUIS (April 27, 2023) – Tarlton Corp., a St. Louis-based general contracting and construction management firm, was named 2023 General Contractor of the Year by the American Subcontractors Association Midwest Council at the organization’s 30th Annual Awards Gala on April 22. The designation is voted on by members of the ASA Midwest Council.
“This honor reflects how embracing our core values of workplace safety, diversity and effective communication on each construction project we undertake forges successful collaborations with our important partners in the subcontracting community,” said Dirk Elsperman, Tarlton executive vice president and chief operating officer. “We are especially proud that Tarlton won in this category in 2021 and has the distinction of being a finalist year after year,” he added.
Also at the awards gala, Tarlton Superintendent Matt Knickmeyer was recognized as the 2023 ASA Field Person of the Year. Joining Tarlton as a carpenter in 1995, he has served since 2010 as lead superintendent for one of the firm’s maintenance contracts with a life sciences client. “Matt is so deserving of this honor,” said Tracy Hart, Tarlton president. “He understands that any construction on an occupied, operating corporate campus can be inconvenient for those who work there, and his goal is to minimize disruption and to make sure that each person, including subcontractors and suppliers, understands the importance of teamwork and how to achieve outstanding customer service.”
