BE&K Building Group Recognized for Commitment to Supplier Diversity in Texas
September 3, 2015

BE&K Building Group was recently honored at the 2015 Top 25 Prime Contractors, Architects, Engineers & Transportation for Diversity awards luncheon in Houston, Texas, hosted by Subcontractors USA magazine and Houston-based media company d-Mars.com.

Garland Burton, BE&K Building Group’s director of diversity and community affairs, accepted the award on behalf of our company. This annual awards event celebrates Houston-area companies and public agencies who “work industriously to foster business growth in minority communities by supporting small business diversity initiatives.” Each nominee is selected by peer organizations who feel they have gone the extra mile to be inclusive in the selection, coaching, and support of small and diverse businesses. Several current and prospective BE&K Building Group clients, including the City of Houston, the Texas State University System, and the Houston Airport Authority, were also among the 25 companies and public agencies to receive awards.

“This was the third consecutive year that BE&K Building Group’s Texas office was presented with this diversity award, exemplifying the dedication and quality of people in the BE&K Building Group family,” said Burton. “Our teams go the extra mile - from leadership to office management, to marketing, estimating and preconstruction, all the way through our project managers and superintendents. BE&K Building Group truly believes that community stewardship is an extension of customer service and is part of the added value that we deliver day in and day out.”
