“The intent of these awards is to identify the construction and related businesses that are leading the way in making our industry more inclusive and more diverse,” said Lester C. Snyder, the association’s 2023 President and Executive Vice President of Brightline West in Las Vegas, Nevada. “We want to recognize these firms’ outstanding progress. As important, we want to inspire the rest of the industry to learn from these firms and build on their successes.”
Spire Consulting Group, LLC is a Hispanic-owned, full-service, fully integrated construction consulting firm that adds value across the entire construction project lifecycle. Spire began based on the premise of assisting clients with navigating complex construction projects by applying lessons learned to prevent cost and schedule overruns. Spire's proactive (construction advisory, project controls, and project management) service lines and forensic (dispute resolution) service line constantly share information with each other to optimize learnings from the beginning of construction projects to the end.
The awards were presented during the association’s annual convention in Las Vegas, Nevada. A diverse panel of judges, representing all aspects of construction, evaluated the submissions based on three criteria: corporate commitment to diversity & inclusion, workforce diversity & inclusion initiatives, and subcontractor/supply chain diversity & inclusion initiatives.
