Rockville, MD,— Forrester Construction Company of Rockville, MD, today announced that it has again been named an Accredited Quality Contractor by Associated Builders and Contractors, for the 4th consecutive year. Forrester Construction has earned the prestigious credential for its commitment to corporate responsibility.

”Forrester Construction is dedicated to building first-in-class projects. We dive into the details to make sure that we deliver a great end-product. Our Quality Control Program, based on the United States Army Corps of Engineers, ensures that our buildings are constructed at the high quality our clients have come to expect.” said Mike Barnhart, Construction Executive and Director of Quality Management for Forrester Construction Company. “Our dedication to building the community doesn’t stop at the ribbon-cutting ceremony. We volunteer and donate to local non-profits making a difference in the DMV, work with universities and organizations to build the next generation of great builders, and consistently refresh our processes and procedures to ensure our team is getting the training and career development needed to solve problems in the field, create innovative solutions, and support our clients and building partners.”
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 Forrester Construction’s commit to the highest level of corporate and community achievement, embodying the best of ABC’s membership. Congratulations to these outstanding construction companies.”
