The Walsh-Fluor Design-Build Team is committed to actively engaging, developing, and partnering with the DBE subcontracting and supplier community. Our team understands that a critical element to creating a successful project is the involvement of DBE firms from the onset. We look forward to working with DBE firms and community stakeholders to revitalize Chicago’s critical transit infrastructure. As of the 3rd quarter of 2021, 15 DBE design companies and 66 DBE companies specializing in construction or professional services have been utilized.
THIS IS A GREAT PLACE FOR YOUR TAGLINE.
To work with the Walsh-Fluor Design-Build Team on this historic project, all Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) firms must be certified by the Illinois Unified Certification Program (IL UCP), which includes the CTA, IDOT, City of Chicago, Metra and Pace.
In order to become certified as a DBE, your firm must meet the eligibility standards established by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Regulation 49 C.F.R, Part 26.
