Robinson Construction of Perryville, Missouri today announced that it has again been named an Accredited Quality Contractor by Associated Builders and Contractors, the 3rd year it has earned the prestigious credential for its commitment to corporate responsibility. Only 229 of the nation’s elite merit shop construction contractors earned the credential in 2020.

According to Robinson President Paul Findlay, “Our continued focus on Robinson’s core values of safety, clients, community, and providing opportunity for our dedicated employees has once again allowed us to achieve this designation from the Associated Builders and Contractors. We are honored to once again be included in this elite group of contractors.”

Launched in 1993, ABC’s AQC program provides recognition to world-class construction firms that have documented their commitment in five areas:

  • Quality
  • Safety performance
  • Talent management
  • Craft and management education
  • Community relations, inclusion, diversity and equity

“Accredited Quality Contractors are the types of companies I want to work for and do business with because of the priority placed on world-class safety, culture, workforce development, innovation, diversity and quality,” said 2021 ABC National Chair of the Board of Directors Steve Klessig, vice president of architecture and engineering, Keller Inc., Kaukauna, Wisconsin. “Congratulations to the leadership and employees of Robinson Construction Company for your daily commitment to corporate and community service; you exemplify the merit shop philosophy and what’s best about ABC membership.”

In earning the AQC credential, each member company commits to world-class safety by achieving Gold, Platinum or Diamond level in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System. Founded more than three decades ago, STEP dramatically improves safety performance among construction industry participants, with top performers achieving incident rates more than eight times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average.

AQC members also take the following pledge:

As an Accredited Quality Contractor, our company is committed to providing our clients with the highest quality construction services, and we care deeply about our employees and the communities in which we build. We are proud to be part of the construction industry and are dedicated to the principles of free enterprise. We commit ourselves to serve our communities and provide our employees with the skills they need to work safely and productively in order to meet the needs of our clients.

AQC is recognized by Construction Users Roundtable, an organization founded by leading construction project owners.

It is no surprise that technology has provided so much growth in how we do day to day activities. That is true in the construction industry as well. Virtual Reality has been a great asset to the industry and to us at Robinson Construction. We use our Virtual Reality machine with our detailed BIM models to place ourselves directly inside a full-scale virtual environment. It allows us to walk the entire project before we even break ground on site. The engineering and construction teams can easily find and address design or constructability issues that could otherwise get overlooked with typical construction documents. Our clients can also walk through the model and see what their project will look like when it is complete. This provides the client with greater transparency and improves our ability to set and meet their expectations. For more on how virtual reality is changing construction click here.

Robinson Construction Company announced it has achieved Diamond Level in Associated Builders and Contractor’s STEP Safety Management System, meaning the company is 655% safer than the industry average. Founded more than three decades ago, STEP has evolved into a world-class safety program that dramatically improves safety performance among construction industry participants.

“We are proud to be recognized by ABC as a Diamond Level STEP Award recipient for 2021,” said Paul Findlay, president of Robinson Construction. “Our entire team is dedicated to a Zero Incidents culture, and this is reflected in our ABC National STEP Diamond Level status.”

Robinson Construction has participated in the STEP program for nearly 20 years, earning an award each year at the Gold Level and above. Diamond is the highest level achievable through the program.

STEP participants measure their safety processes and policies on key components through a detailed questionnaire with the goal of implementing or enhancing safety programs that reduce jobsite incidents.

“Safety is a journey, and that journey is possible because of systems like STEP, which enables ABC member contractors like Robinson Construction to have a safer and more productive jobsite,” said Greg Sizemore, ABC vice president of health, safety, environment and workforce development. “Committing to total human health is essential to ensure both the physical and mental health and safety of our workforce, and I commend Robinson Construction for consistently fulfilling those commitments to raising the bar of safety performance.”

According to ABC’s annual Safety Performance Report, STEP participants, regardless of company size or type of work, and can reduce recordable incidents up to 85%, making the best performing companies more than eight times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average. Ratings range from Diamond, the highest, to Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Participant.
