Welcome to the Minority Construction Council. Whether you are an established business desiring to expand or you wish to create a new business and need guidance, you have come to the right place. You are invited to become a member of the MCC. We take pride in advancing the cause of minority contractors. MCC has a strong commitment to continually understand your current challenges in the construction marketplace. Our commitment centers around a professional work ethic on your behalf to reduce and remove barriers that stand between the minority contractor and contracting opportunities on construction projects. Our goal is to build bridges between project owners, construction managers, general contractors, and minority-owned construction contractors. MCC will work with you as an individual firm, and as a member in growing your business, giving your company a professional profile, and assisting you in meeting the administrative and technical demands in the contracting process. You are part of an association of many voices that can speak as one in strength.
We are excited about the challenges and opportunities you face in growing your company. You are not alone in your efforts to become a better business person and take your business to the next level. MCC provides a forum for you to give and receive information, form business relationships with other minority and majority contractors, construction managers and project owners, and to develop positive relationships along the way. Our job is to locate and assist project owners, construction managers, and general contractors in increasing MBE participation on their projects by finding the MBE trade contractors they are looking for. On the other side of the ledger, MCC assists members in identifying current and planned projects that match their capacity and long range growth objectives. Our Match Maker Program will also assist majority firms in locating MBE firms that may be interested in a strategic partnership or joint venture partner on construction projects.
Our MCC members are committed and willing to do their part to prepare and be equipped for work on substantial project opportunities, as well as smaller residential projects. The MCC Board of Directors is committed to offering training opportunities so that our members are able to work on state of the art projects. The MCC staff constantly works to keep our membership abreast of current MBE certifications at the municipal and State level so that our members are able to respond to public and private invitations to bid around the State of Connecticut
Altogether, we provide programs and services including education and training seminars, advocacy, contractor networking and dissemination of information. This formula has produced MBE contractors that are able to perform at the very highest level of competence. We support our members in ensuring that they are able to complete construction projects on schedule and within the project budget.
