Empirehouse Earns NACC Architectural Glass & Metal Contractor Certification
Empirehouse is proud to be the first Glazing Contractor in the Midwest to earn NACC Certification to ensure quality and safety by national standards.
The NACC Program for Architectural Glass & Metal Contractors is awarded to those contractors who demonstrate consistency, quality and safety excellence. NACC Program requirements are established by a Certification Board of AG&M contractors and industry experts, and end user stakeholders. The NACC Program is formally accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to the globally-recognized ISO/IEC17065:2012 standard. As part of ANSI’s ongoing annual accreditation process, an assessor witnesses the administration of the NACC Program onsite at contractor’s organizations which adds another layer of accountability.
“We believe knowledge from the Industry makes the best certification program,” said NACC Representative Jeff Dalaba. “Certification raises the quality bar.”
While the NACC Program is not a warranty of the end product, it certifies that industry-identified best practices and a quality management system have been properly implemented which increase the likelihood that the end product meets or exceeds customer expectations.
NACC Certification raises the quality bar.
Empirehouse worked through a detailed evaluation which explored our Company Business Practices; Safety Protocol; Quality Management Systems; Contract Administrative Processes; and Glazing Processes.
On April 22, 2016, NACC certified that Empirehouse, Inc. has met North American Contractor Certification Program for Architectural Glass and Metal Contractors (NACC) Program requirements in the following categories: Interior and Entry Systems; Building Envelope – Low Rise; Building Envelope – High Rise; and Active Glass.
Having this in-depth NACC Certification Program not only validates what we do, but it provides a guideline to say what we do, do what we say, and prove it.
“The NACC program fits perfectly into our company’s core value of team, safety, quality, integrity and innovation,” said James Bringle, General Manager of Empirehouse. “Our staff embraces this certification program and understands the benefits it brings to our company and future business. Having this in-depth NACC program not only validates what we do, but it provides a guideline to say what we do, do what we say and prove it.”
