For projects involving minority solicitations, Davila Construction makes a concerted effort to bring in qualified companies. An advertisement is placed in the Builder's Exchange website requesting proposals from certified S/M/W/DBE and HUB companies. We also maintain a database of these companies, which we use to select appropriate subcontractors for 'the trades required on a project. We then fax a bid solicitation, following up with a phone call to attain bid intentions.
