Diversity and Inclusivity
We provide innovative resources that serve the needs of our current and potential diverse subcontractors, vendors, and suppliers. Our successful program is based on a “TEAM” approach that embraces Training, Education, Advocacy and access to Mentoring opportunities.
When we first receive a project, our successful Diversity and Inclusivity program takes wings through a four-phase process.
Includes Strong Outreach Efforts in the Local Community for team members for both design and construction.
Our Pre-Construction team reviews the project elements and creates bid packages that allow an equal playing field for the local, small, minority and veteran businesses.
During construction, we continue to reach out for team members as we understand that there are always needs on a construction site. We provide networking events, training and workshops and an open door to our Area Champion for questions or concerns that may arise.
We wrap up our success stories with our team members and identify the quantitative participation of our local, small, minority and veteran businesses.
We recognize that our projects cannot be successful without our team partners; contractors, architects, engineers, vendors, suppliers and professional services firms. Together, with our owners, we align to the needs and aspirations of the project to bring it to a completed structure.
Sundt Construction has Area Champions who work closely with the community organizations to locate and identify ready, willing and able diverse contractors, suppliers, vendors, and professional services firms. The champions focus on their project area and search out local firms who can assist Sundt in building their local economy and take pride in being a part of a beautiful project in their neighborhood.
