Bill Childs, CEO of Gambrills, Md-based Chaney Enterprises, was recognized by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association with two of the industry’s top awards – – the NRMCA “Chairman’s Award” for “extraordinary dedication and service” to the association, and the national “Building Promoter of the Year” award for outstanding contributions in support of low- to mid-rise concrete buildings.
For the “Building Promoter of the Year Award,” Childs was recognized for helping to advance the industry through his leadership on the boards and committees of many organizations, including serving as 2013 NRMCA chairman when he spearheaded a number of high profile promotional activities. He was involved from the start in helping shape the acclaimed “Build with Strength” program by providing direction and inspiration for NRMCA to better educate the design/build and code communities about the benefits of concrete construction in the low to mid-rise sector.
Regionally, he was instrumental in working with the Maryland General Assembly to promote legislation that seeks to limit dangerous light-weight combustible wood construction in low to mid-rise residential buildings.
For the “Chairman’s Award,” Childs was recognized for his lifelong dedication to the ready mix industry and NRMCA, which represents the producers of ready mixed concrete and the companies that provide materials, equipment and support to the industry.
Chaney Enterprises operates 16 ready-mixed concrete plants, six sand and gravel facilities and a construction materials supply store.
