AGC of KY Hosts Quality Event

The Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Kentucky Quality Control Committee hosted a “Construction Quality Control Programs” event on June 6, 2012 to members and guests. The event featured a presentation by Alan R. Bates, Toyota Specialist/Corporate Trainer, on the “Toyota Way” of quality and relating to customer expectations of construction quality. The presentation focused on quality control, critical path decision making and construction quality programs.

The “Construction Quality Control Programs” event, a first of its kind for the AGC of KY, is a proactive continuous improvement program that recognizes innovation in quality, preplanned efforts and incremental measurement versus a post construction assessment of finished products. The event gave attendees a chance to improve their own companies while participating in a program that recognizes the efforts within the AGC organization and the improvement of the Kentucky construction industry.


This event kicked off the AGC of Kentucky’s Quality Committee Recognition Program. Jon Wright, Gray’s GrayGuard Manager, is the Co-Chair of the AGC of Kentucky Quality Committee. Gray has been involved in the AGC for over 20 years, with team members serving in various leadership positions. Steve Summers, executive vice president for Gray, is the current president of the AGC of KY.
