Turner Construction Company, the nation’s leading general builder, is marking the firm’s 50th anniversary of the Turner School of Construction Management (TSCM) program.
The program is Turner’s longest-running community-based program. Established in 1969 in an effort to improve the economic viability of under-represented business enterprises and increase the number and quality of opportunities available to growing businesses, it quickly became a successful path for Turner to develop strategic business relationships in the communities where we build.
The program provides business owners with courses on topics such as safety, risk management, estimating, financial literacy and project management.
Since the program’s establishment, there have been more than 30,000 graduates. During 2018 alone, 24 sessions were held, graduating more than 650 people. The program has helped Turner build successful long-term relationships with under-represented business enterprises (UBE’s representing minority, women, disabled, veteran and LGBT owned businesses) generating more than 3,380 contracts with a value of $1.64 billion for the year.
Peter Davoren, President and Chief Executive Officer of Turner Construction Company, stated, “Turner is committed to supporting communities where we do business. It is extremely rewarding to build a hospital or a school. It is even more rewarding to build these important community resources with people from the community. An important role we play is to improve the economic viability and expand opportunities for local minority, women and small-business enterprises through the projects we build.”
Karen Sweeney, Senior Vice President, Community and Citizenship, said, “This program is a defining part of who we are at Turner. We are proud of our commitment to offer this opportunity to connect and grow under-represented businesses.” Karen continued, “This is the essence of our company’s culture. We strive to make a difference in the communities we serve with help from our local UBE trade partners.”
