The Construction Center


The Construction Center at The Enterprise Center supports minority and women-owned firms in the construction, professional services, construction management, and janitorial trades. Recognizing the importance of being involved in the conversations, The Construction Center was formed in April 2016 to provide minority firms with greater access to public and private sector projects within The City of Philadelphia. The Construction Center encourages partnerships between Minority, Women-owned, and Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (M/W/DBE).

Events

The Construction Center hosts monthly events. Programming consists of procurement opportunities (non-union & union), industry best practices and education, access to capital, and networking. Past presenters have included PGW, the City of Philadelphia, Wells Fargo, PA Turnpike, INTECH, Rebuild Philadelphia, and local universities and developers. Past events have included workshops on estimating, responding to Requests for Proposals (RFPs) from potential clients, and workers’ compensation.
