“Receiving these two prestigious awards from the WBC is an absolute honor,” said CEO, Joanne Stokes. “We couldn’t be more proud or grateful to have our efforts recognized by such an incredible organization, and we would especially like to thank Terminal Construction Corporation for their support.”

Her innovative communication strategies have helped keep the impacted communities, as well as the general public, informed and engaged throughout the construction process.
