RIGID Constructors, a prominent leader in the heavy civil and marine construction industry, celebrated a successful collaboration with the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center during a recent event at its corporate office in Lafayette, Louisiana. Held on December 7, 2023, the event marked a significant milestone in the company’s commitment to the health and well-being of its workforce through the Mary Bird Perkins’ Prevention on the Go—Workplace Program.

The collaboration with the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center allowed us to make a significant impact, reaching employees who had not previously accessed essential cancer screenings.”
RIGID Constructors is actively collaborating with Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center to introduce the Prevention-On-The-Go Units program at field locations beginning in 2024, aiming to extend this initiative to employees beyond office settings. This endeavor underscores RIGID’s commitment to employee health and its overarching dedication to creating a positive impact in the communities it serves.
