Robinson Attains AISC Quality Management Systems Certification

Robinson Construction recently earned the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Quality Management Systems (QMS) Certification for structural steel erection with endorsements for seismic and metal desk installation. The AISC QMS Certification sets the quality standard for the structural steel industry and is the most widely recognized national quality certification program for the industry.

To become certified, companies go through a rigorous initial evaluation and are subject to annual reviews. The evaluations require a comprehensive administrative review, documentation audit, and on-site audit to evaluate a company’s quality management system rather than just specific product inspection. The program focuses on the entire process of fabrication and erection – confirming that a company has the personnel, organization, experience, procedures, knowledge, equipment, and commitment to meet the AISC Standards.

Because the program requires participants to set goals and holds them accountable for all aspects of their organization, from management responsibility to employee training to material purchasing and handling to project specific erection and safety plans - participants will continually improve over time. According to QC Manager Willy Oldham, “Robinson’s goal is to build quality structures from the start by focusing on preventing errors rather than correcting them after the fact. By pre-planning and quality tracking, we can reduce re-work, which is beneficial to all parties involved. AISC certified contractors are held to the strictest standards of quality and safety, which means our customers can rest assured that we not only know the way things should be done, but that we are actually doing them that way.”
