The project partners committed to seeing that the access to the jobs generated by our projects help lift up the community. We established goals for each project to promote participation and inclusion of Women- and Minority-owned Businesses (WMBE). Until completion of the project, this page was updated regularly to inform the community about contracting options for the Liberty Bank Building project as well as report back on our progress toward our goals.
We are proud to report that of the $16.7 million available for subcontractor work, over $5 million (more than 30%) went to Women- and Minority-owned Businesses (WMBEs). Over $2.9 million of that was awarded specifically to African American-owned businesses.
Walsh Construction is the general contractor for this project and oversaw any contracting with WMBE applicants.
