"I have always felt that being a member of AGC sets us apart," said Larry Knox, Vice President for Bob Moore Construction. "AGC members have tremendous educational programs in a variety of construction-related subjects, from safety to professional development and superintendent training, to LEED Green Building standards. In Texas, QUOIN has a tremendous positive impact on our industry, and our communities as well. By joining QUOIN you are making a commitment to standards of conduct and ethics that are invaluable to our clients, our employees and the industry. AGC members are seen as better trained and more professional than other companies, and I believe there's a good reason for that."
