Anderson Awarded for his Contributions to the Industry

Dennis “Hap” Anderson was awarded the Robert D. Sawyer Distinguished Service Award at the CFA annual awards luncheon Saturday, August 9, 2003, at the Kingston Plantation Resort in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Hap, president of Anderson Construction Inc, is recognized for his contributions to the industry over the past four decades. A founding member of the Concrete Foundations Association, Hap Anderson has been an active member and supporter since 1975. Hap attended the first poured wall contractor conference in Chicago, IL. He helped define what a poured wall contractor was, outline the reasons a poured wall association was necessary, chose the original name for the association (Poured Concrete Wall Contractors of America), and recruit members. Hap served as president of the Association in 1978-79, and also volunteered his time on the board. “Hap’s leadership qualities include inner strength, resolve, focus, confidence and integrity,” states David Isaacson of Isaacson Construction Inc., who presented the award. “These things he passes on to others not knowing the impact they have on all who come into contact with him.”

The Robert D. Sawyer Award is named on behalf of Bob Sawyer, the first Executive Director of the CFA. The award is presented to a CFA member whose contributions to the concrete foundation industry merit recognition. It honors individuals who selflessly give their time and resources to serve the industry, as Bob Sawyer did for the CFA through its formative years.

“Older members know how important this award is.” Isaacson states, “[This year’s recipient] is a man that I hold in the highest esteem. He has been a mentor to many. I am thankful to know him and honored to call him my friend.”

Anderson Construction Inc., founded in 1963, currently provides excavating concrete walls, flatwork, and waterproofing services for the Springfield, MO area. Hap is presently semiretired with three employees in his company.

Other presentations at the luncheon include recognition of long-standing CFA members and acceptance of the coveted Basement of the Year award plaque by Gary and Dan Bromley of ABI Corporation, Lee’s Summit, MO. The Basement of the Year is determined annually by member votes at the CFA booth during the World of Concrete.
