Diversity, Equity Inclusion
We value and respect the uniqueness of
our employees, clients, and communities
where we live and work.
BCI Construction is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a diverse and inclusive culture where everyone is welcome and ensures fair treatment, access, and opportunity.
We believe that a wide range of backgrounds, experiences, and views from our construction partners, employees, and trade contractor community provides us with access to a broad range of ideas that delivers greater value for employees, clients, and the communities where we live and work.
BCI defines DEI as:
Diversity: Fostering an environment that includes a wide range of backgrounds, experiences, and views.
Equity: Fair and equitable treatment, access, opportunity, and engagement for all.
Inclusion: A work environment that respects and values all perspectives.
Trade Partners: Open, Equal Opportunity Bidding
BCI construction provides an open bid process to maximize opportunity from a broad list of qualified trade partners.
Bid Package Preparation
When preparing bid packages, BCI defines the scope of work through concise detail of bid categories
to eliminate confusion between bid packages.
In advance of the project, BCI solicits bids by informing the Micro-LBE and the minority business community. They also work with the client to create a qualified bid list for public invitations to bid and make critical trades aware of the opportunity.
Evaluating and Pre-Qualifying Trade Contractors
Prior to the awarding of a contract, each potential trade contractor is put through a post-bid interview
to insure that the bid amount is accurate and complete to determine the trade contractor’s ability to provide quality workmanship and performance.
MBE/WBE Local and Regional Participation
Construction projects offer an opportunity to involve the community in a variety of ways and BCI Construction follows all Fair Employment Practices. Whenever possible, we utilize the skills and services from local Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Women-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) compliance programs. We utilize the Micro-Local Business Enterprise Directory as a tool to search for local participation and we have also referred to the State of Michigan Directory of Minority Business Enterprises to solicit participation.
