an“Accredited Quality Contractor.”AQC members that earn this prestigious accreditation receive benefits such as national and local recognition and promotion at industry trade shows, including the American Institute of Architects, Design-Build Institute of America and Construction Users Roundtable.Accredited contractors are allowed to use the AQC designation as a marketing tool on bid documents, letterhead, business cards, brochures and jobsite signs.  In addition, AQC members can use the program to develop benchmarks in quality, safety, training, employee benefits and industry image, as well as feature the AQC logo in job advertisements and as part of the employee handbook.  Companies that are active members of the AQC program also receive additional points on their project submissions for ABC’s National Excellence in Construction Awards program.
