Laverdiere Construction is committed to utilizing DBE (Disadvantage Business Enterprise) firms, while meeting contract goals. On many of our projects, Laverdiere has exceeded both the contract DBE goals and the minority employment goals. Encouragement for DBE firms to participate with Laverdiere begins at the bidding process. During bidding, we contact DBE firms directly, to provide invitations to bid, generate interest, and answer questions.
We post our requests for participation electronically on the IDOT Contractor Market Place website. This allows DBE firms to find out what projects we are bidding on, and what work categories they might be interested in quoting. Laverdiere's commitment to the DBE program is confirmed by the lasting relationships that we have developed over the years with many DBE firms.
