ATLANTA, GA – Artisan Group member Construction Resources, Inc./Atlanta Kitchen, Inc. has announced it has earned the designation of Marble Institute of America (MIA) Accredited Natural Stone Fabricator.
Construction Resources is the second fabricator in Georgia to claim the accreditation, and joins a prestigious group of 55 total certified Natural Stone Fabricators nationally. The Artisan Group holds more than half of the national MIA accreditations.
In order to receive accreditation, Construction Resources/Atlanta Kitchen passed three phases. Phase one was the completion of a lengthy application that required Construction Resources to provide various documents and references which ensure that the company is in compliance with the ten standards of accreditation as laid out by the MIA Accreditation Commission. Phase two required Hires and Operations Manager David Lovelock to pass a 200-question multiple choice test. The exam tested their knowledge and application of material usage, installation, fabrication, restoration, care and maintenance, administration, legal/contracts and safety on the jobsite and in the shop. The third phase was a comprehensive site visit, which included a facility review, document review and one or more installation site visits. The sole purpose of the program is to increase the quality of fabrication and installation practices in the stone industry.
