Fresh Eyes℠ Quality Assurance
It’s an old saying in our industry: “There’s never been a perfect set of plans – and there’s never been a perfect building.” But that doesn’t stop our team from setting our sites on perfection!
Hood Construction firmly believes in achievable standards for High Quality – because quality isn’t a concept we’re willing to compromise. Our formal Quality Assurance Program began many years ago, with an intense focus on developing excellence within the fabric of our firm’s culture and mindset. And, as with any great organization of excellence, success is all about the people who represent us. Here at Hood Construction, we’re pleased to say our folks are among the best in our field – and possess a strong eye for quality.
Today, our Quality Assurance processes have grown into a High-Performance Program – appropriately named: “Fresh Eyes℠”. And our client’s are quite pleased with the result.
At Hood Construction, we’re unabashedly proud to be a leader for quality …. And it shows.
Safety – It’s Everyone’s Business!
Hood Construction’s Safety Commitment is a vital part of our organizational focus, as we diligently work to safeguard our greatest assets — our partners and your community — each and every day.
Having produced hundreds of projects, our firm realizes the curiosity our construction activity will draw, and we’re accustomed to managing requirements to reduce risk, and successfully navigate any concerns. Our formal safety program follows all OSHA standards, and is regularly updated and enhanced to incorporate our own additional mandatory requirements. At Hood Construction, we consider safety a tangible part of “Building it Right” – and our safety policies are strictly enforced.
