Arlington-based Bob Moore Construction has become the first general contractor in the United States to be named a TCA Certified Company by the Tilt-up Concrete Association (TCA).
The TCA Company Certification Program provides formal validation of a contractor’s experience, quality and performance.
Bob Moore Construction was the first general contractor in the country to be considered for this certification program. Ed Sauter, executive director of TCA, and Clay Fischer, TCA member and CEO of Woodland Construction Co. in Jupiter, Fla., evaluated Bob Moore Construction’s program on July 29-30. The evaluation included a technical review of the company’s policies, procedures and safety program, and a physical inspection of an active construction project.


“This is a tremendous honor,” said Ed McGuire, executive vice president for Bob Moore Construction. “As a sustaining member of the TCA, we supported the development of this certification program. The TCA company certification is an objective, standards-based mechanism to formally accredit contractors that adhere to the highest values of integrity, safety and quality.”
The TCA company certification is only the latest industry-leading accreditation for Bob Moore Construction. The company was one of the first general contractors in Texas to have its superintendents evaluated and certified as Tilt-Up supervisors by the American Concrete Institute in a joint program with the TCA. The ACI grants Tilt-Up supervisor certification only to those applicants who pass a written exam and have five years of verifiable construction experience, including three years in Tilt-Up construction. Bob Moore Construction also was one of the first general contractors in Texas to be accepted in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Local Partnership program in recognition of its superior safety program.
Tilt-up construction is one of the fastest-growing industries in the country, combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment, according to the TCA. For more information: www.tilt-up.org.
