Small Construction Businesses & Opportunities in the DC Market

    The Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (GWHCC) and Metro DC Hispanic Contractors Association (MDCHCA) just completed the first phase of a process created to increase the share of construction business that accrues to small, locally based sub-contractors in the Washington DC region.

    The process began in a February 15th breakfast with a frank discussion among construction project owners, large general contractors and representatives of small businesses and construction workers. These parties gathered for a 2 hour roundtable debate on best practices, inefficiencies in the process, lack of CBE capacity and the deficiencies and scarcity of highly qualified firms along with a dearth of skilled workers.
