Communities Empowered Through Construction

Communities Empowered Through Construction


The CEC is committed to community. We believe that in every community there are qualified candidates that would love to be a part of the on-going developments in their communities. We are constantly looking for potential candidates currently in the construction industry or have a desire to be in the industry. If you are looking to join our network, please complete the Online Application.


Building and developing qualified minority contractors from the community is at the core of our company. We believe community residents and minority contractors are capable and with the right resources and opportunities they will be successful. We encourage minority contractors to register with our organizations. We can assist contractors with referrals, help them strategically and professionally submit project bids and monitor the ongoing relationship with large general contractors.


Our history lies within the construction industry. With a project portfolio that includes clients such as McHugh Construction, Power Construction, Related Midwest, and many more, we have a clear understanding of the needs and the level of service that developers require.  We welcome the opportunity to work with construction developers and general contractors on meeting their community hiring goals.
