Were B & S Development, a small minority-owned general contracting construction company that operates within the City of Richmond, Virginia, and surrounding areas. We provide renovation services to residential homes and commercial buildings. We also provide new construction for both residential and commercial properties. The specific types of equipment required to carry out construction projects, along with the cost of managing a workforce, make starting a construction business very capital intensive. Despite the fact that the construction industry requires high start-up costs, it can be highly profitable for businesses like ours that strive to provide high-quality work. The construction field is consistently in demand on a global scale due to the sheer essentiality of construction and development. This industry can comfortably boast of being responsible for the infrastructural development of the world. Typically, the larger nationally known general contracting firms are awarded most of the government contracts around the city. Minority contracting firms are often overlooked because of the different variables. Currently, the U.S. government is initiating a mandate that a certain level of minority contractors be awarded government contracts. We are committed to being a strong representative for minority contracting firms, especially those constantly overlooked. Our ultimate goal is to be competitive on large U.S. government contracts and be considered a prime contractor.
