Three Rivers Corporation has announced it has again been named an Accredited Quality Contractor by Associated Builders and Contractors, the second consecutive year that Three Rivers Corporation has earned the prestigious credential for its commitment to corporate responsibility. ABC is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Accredited Quality Contractors program in 2023, and only 547 of the nation’s elite merit shop construction contractors most recently earned the credential.
“Three Rivers Corporation is honored to once again be recognized by Associated Builders and Contractors for the commitment we have as a company to deliver the highest levels the safety and quality for the work we complete, and for the commitments we make to supporting the communities where we do business,” said Jon Lynch, President of Three Rivers Corporation. “We take immense pride in our dedicated team, whose unwavering commitment to our core values ensures the delivery of exceptional construction services that meet the needs of our customers across the entire state.”
Launched three decades ago, ABC’s AQC program provides recognition to world-class construction firms that have documented their commitment in five areas:
- Safety performance
- Talent management, including inclusion, diversity and equity
- Craft and management education
- Community relations
“Accredited Quality Contractors exemplify top-performing contractors by setting the standard in the contracting community for safety, culture, workforce development, innovation, diversity and quality,” said Michael Bellaman, ABC president and CEO. “Every day, the leaders and employees of Three Rivers Corporation commit to the highest level of corporate and community achievement, embodying the best of ABC’s membership. Congratulations to these outstanding construction companies.”
In earning the AQC credential, each member company commits to world-class safety by achieving the 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 six times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average.
Reaccredited annually, AQC members also make 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.
