We sat down with him to talk about Gray Quality and the industry overall.


What does Quality mean to you?


“To me, Quality means that you have pride in your work; your teams’ name is on that project or job forever. It means securing the future continued growth of Gray team members and future work opportunities for Gray by ensuring we exceed customers’ expectations.”


How has Gray’s Quality program changed since your time at Gray?


“Since my time at Gray, Quality has evolved to encompass more of our lessons learned and to better capture the more technical side of construction.”

“At Gray, we take pride in our culture and own what happens on every project and jobsite. We treat each project like it’s our own because that’s what our customers expect from us. There is a correct way, the wrong way, and the Gray way.”
