Wayne County Airport Authority (WCAA), the operator of Detroit Metropolitan and Willow Run airports in Michigan, will host a Construction Industry Day on December 8, 2016, to showcase contracting opportunities for attending businesses.
Prime contractors, subcontractors and suppliers will spend the day networking and learning about the WCAA procurement process, prime and subcontracting opportunities, disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE) and small business enterprise (SBE) certification, and WCAA’s five-year capital improvement plan.
Prime contractors Adamo Demolition, Ajax Paving, Angelo Iafrate Construction, Barton Malow, Blaze Contracting, Dan’s Excavating, Interstate Highway Construction, Nora Contracting, Roncelli and Walbridge, will be available to discuss matchmaking opportunities.
Joseph Nardone, interim CEO, WCAA, said, “For several months, our procurement department has focused on enhancing our programs to help more small and minority owned businesses secure contracts for work at our airports. One key aspect of our targeted business programs is increasing our outreach to businesses across Michigan and educating more owners about our streamlined SBE certification processes. The upcoming Construction Industry Day is an example of our plan in action.”
WCAA partners, including the Michigan Department of Transportation, Small Business Administration, Schoolcraft College Procurement Technical Assistance Center and Wayne County Human Relations, will be on hand to answer questions and provide resources to attendees.
