Bowen strives for mutual trust and respect with customers, partners, and employees who share our Core Values:
Zero injury and genuine concern for others
Enthusiastic teamwork & celebration
Never walk away from a problem
We are committed to ZERO INJURY.
Throughout the construction industry, much improvement has been made in reducing worker injury in the workplace. Still, injuries continue to happen. Many companies simply accept that worker injury is an unavoidable consequence of being in the construction business. The Zero Injury Philosophy challenges us to change the way we think about and accept injuries as a part of doing business. The fact that injuries happen does not mean that injuries are acceptable. The Zero Injury Philosophy is a thought process that if a worker can work one day without an injury, the worker can work each and every additional day injury free. When Zero Injury is alive in an organization, millions of injury-free work hours can be achieved.

In the spirit of the Bowen Core Value "Continuous Improvement", our Quality Department stands as the sentinel over our vision of Zero Defect projects. Our dedicated quality managers have the knowledge and understanding of the codes and standards that govern our work. They work hand-in-hand with our project teams to ensure that our clients receive a finished product that is of the highest workmanship.
For projects that do not require an onsite Quality Manager, we assign an onsite employee to the role of Quality Champion. The Quality Champion serves as the single point of contact for the quality managers responsible for that project. The quality manager also becomes a resource for the Champion as they work closely throughout the life of the project.
