KPH Sponsors Federal Contracting Event

In an ongoing effort to offer networking and educational opportunities to small and disadvantaged contractors in the construction business, KPH Construction participated in an event today that drew dozens of such firms eager to learn more about possible work for the federal government.

Today’s event at the Milwaukee War Memorial was presented by AGC of Greater Milwaukee, AIA Wisconsin, WPI and ECBI, founded by KPH Construction for this very goal.

Topics for the day included “The Federal Market Opportunity,” offering a glimpse of the federal contracts awarded for the construction industry by prime and subcontracts in 2012. KPH owner Keith Harenda participated as a panelist and said, “While KPH today works in hospitals, commercial developments, school districts and hospitality, we have weathered economic downturns by becoming a trusted contractor for the federal government. We’re happy to share our success with female-, minority- and veteran-owned firms through the ECBI and by mentoring and teaming with small contractors on government projects.”
