What is the merit shop philosophy?
Merit Shop Construction refers to a philosophy in the construction industry that awards contracts based on performance, value, and quality of work, rather than on labor affiliations. This approach promotes open competition and ensures that contracts are awarded to the most qualified and cost-effective builders.
How many ABC books are there?
There are approximately one million alphabet books out there and so many of them are poorly written or deeply contrived (I know, I know – I should try to write my own ABC book and then talk about how bad some of them are).
Why does ABC lock some episodes?
The lock symbol identifies which episodes require you to sign in with a participating TV provider.
What is AQC certification?
The prestigious Accredited Quality Contractor credential publicly recognizes and honors those construction firms that have documented their commitment in five areas of corporate responsibility: Quality Safety Talent Management Craft and Management Education Community Relations.
