The Associated Builders and Contractors ranked Barriere #55 in the country on its Top 200 Performers list during our first year as an ABC Accredited Quality Contractor, the primary qualifier for this honor.
“Barriere’s commitment to world-class safety performance, workforce development, diversity leadership, and community service excellence makes them a clear leader.” – Tony Rader, 2019 ABC National Chair
Barriere has long met the requirements of the AQC program, which recognizes construction firms with a well-documented commitment to five areas of corporate responsibility:
- Safety – ABC Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) Gold level or above
- Community Relations
- Employee Benefits
In 2019, we applied for the first time, and it was a success!
In achieving AQC status, we 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 principle of free enterprise. We commit ourselves to serve our communities and to provide our employees with the skills they need to work safely and productively in order to meet the needs of our clients.
