Today, Manhattan Construction Co. announced that it has earned the Accredited Quality Contractor (AQC) credential, which is bestowed by the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC). This is the 13th consecutive year that Manhattan has been recognized with the AQC designation.

“Associated Builders and Contractors is pleased to recognize Manhattan Construction’s continued commitment not only to high quality construction, but also to its employees, clients and communities as an Accredited Quality Contractor,” said 2016 ABC National Chair David Chapin, president of Willmar Electric Service, Lincoln, Neb. “Manhattan Construction’s dedication to responsibly and ethically running its business permeates through every facet of its operation and makes it a terrific ambassador for the merit shop construction community.”

“The AQC designation is a reflection of our commitment to provide a lasting and positive impact on the communities in which we build, our team members and their families, and all of the people who are part of the building process,” said Manhattan Construction Company President John Reyhan. “We work hard to improve our training, benefits and programs year after year. AQC measures that positive evolution.”

ABC’s AQC program provides recognition to world-class construction firms that have documented their commitment in five areas of corporate responsibility:

  • Safety.
  • Quality.

  • Training.
  • Community relations and diversity.

AQC status is reviewed for renewal annually and is recognized by Construction Users Roundtable (CURT®), an organization founded by leading construction project owners. In achieving AQC status, each member company takes the following pledge:
