Why We Build

Mission Stat

We build trust, communities and people – while delivering an exceptional product and client experience.

Safety is Culture, Not Just Policy

AP’s incident and injury free safety culture encourages personal leadership along with individual and collective responsibility to create an environment where incidents and injuries are unacceptable. Our culture centers on having a high level of care and concern for our employees, our subcontractors and all fellow workers. All AP employees are committed to being personally responsible for keeping our workplace safe. Low numbers are not the focus – but they are the result. By focusing on the why, rather than the analytics, AP continues to maintain an Experience Modification Rate (EMR) well below industry standard.
