ConstructSecure has changed its name to Highwire, reflecting a broader mission to help construction professionals and owners of capital projects succeed by elevating the capabilities of their partners to deliver great work.
The most recent U.S. Chamber of Commerce Commercial Construction Index found that 92% of contractors reported some level of difficulty finding skilled workers and 55% indicated high levels of difficulty. Increasingly complex capital projects and an acute skilled labor shortage mean firms are forced to take on riskier partners.
Traditional prequalification creates a false sense of security, leaving builders and owners open to significant safety, financial, quality, and sustainability risks. This is why companies are turning to Partner Elevation, representing a fundamental shift across the construction industry — from an over-reliance on upfront partner screening to a more collaborative, dynamic approach to risk mitigation across the project lifecycle.
Highwire has partnered with two non-profit organizations focused on elevating their own communities: The Rosendin Foundation, a philanthropic venture from Rosendin Holdings (Rosendin Electric and Modular Power Solutions); and Russell CARES, the philanthropic arm of H. J. Russell & Co.
The Rosendin Foundation was established to positively impact communities, build and empower people, and inspire innovation, partnering with community-focused, non-profit organizations in 17 regions across the United States to support health including emotional, nutritional, and occupational programs.
“[Highwire] has been a fantastic partner for Rosendin over the years,” said Joan Bremer, chairperson for the Grant Making Committee for The Rosendin Foundation. “As the supplier/subcontractor program supervisor, I’ve worked hand in hand with them while developing our subcontractor prequalification program, which is now a cornerstone of our project operations procedure. I am beyond thrilled they looked to our organization for their philanthropic giving.”
For the first 500 signatures of The Partner Elevation Pledge, Highwire will donate $10 to Russell Cares and The Rosendin Foundation.
