The new Enterprise Center in West Philadelphia was built using the services of minority-owned contractors mentored by LF Driscoll.

From The Philadelphia Tribune:

Developed and constructed using a total of $2.5 million in public and philanthropic funding, the project used 16 different MBE contractors to create the hub that the Enterprise Center intends to use as offices for the Enterprise Center CDC as well as market rate housing for the local community.

The participating MBEs were provided with mentorship from construction management firm LF Driscoll in completing the project, whose vice president, Mike Delaney, said he sees the completion of this project not as the end of the story but as the beginning of a potentially valuable partnership.

“We see this as but a small first step in what will prove to be an exponentially valuable partnership. Mentoring the next generation of minority tradesmen and women will fuel the future growth of our city, with benefits that will reach far into communities. We are excited to continue this work and further invest in our city’s workforce,” Delaney said.
