For more than five decades, the BX Craftsmanship Awards Program has recognized the importance of craftspeople for the quality work they provide to the local construction industry. This year, one individual and nine crews will be honored with a 2018 BX Craftsmanship Award.
The recipients were selected from 36 nominations of work completed throughout the central Ohio area during the past year. Profiles of the winners and their work will be published in upcoming editions of the BX eNewsletter and recognized during the 126th BX Annual Meeting on Nov. 15.
The 2018 BX Craftsmanship Award winners are:

The Ohio History Center’s eight-year investment in cost-effective and incremental energy efficiency has resulted in a facility efficient enough to pursue Zero Energy Building (ZEB) status. Gregory Raffio (Go Sustainable Energy, LLC) will explain how this facility serves as a critical example to emphasize the untapped potential of existing buildings in the quest for carbon neutrality.
This meeting has been approved for 1 CE hour from the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) and 1 LU credit from the American Institute of Architects (AIA). For more information, contact Shauna Byrne.
The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) requires that employers reconcile their actual payroll following each policy year. The 2017 payroll (July 1, 2017 – June 30, 2018) true-up report, as well as any true-up payment, is due to the BWC no later than Aug. 15.
Your true-up must be reported on time or the BWC may lapse your coverage and/or remove your company from any alternative rating programs. The BWC considers the true-up complete when payroll is reported and any related premium payments are made.
The quickest and easiest way to complete your company’s true-up is online with a BWC e-account. If you do not have a BWC e-account, click here to create one. For questions or more information about the true-up process, contact Stacy Sleeper.
