The program is designed for Washington and Oregon state-certified firms (DBE, WBE, MBE, MWBE, etc.) by providing coaching and a better understanding of how to be successful working on construction projects with large Prime Contractors. It includes essential training from Skanska leadership on topics identified as challenges for many Washington and Oregon state-certified contractors. These include bidding, contracting requirements, safety and the PlanIt program, accounting tips, and other useful tools. Participants will find the format to include lecture, group discussions, and hands-on demonstrations with proven business practices.

An additional benefit to the program is the opportunity to network and build relationships with other contractors, Skanska leadership, and Port of Seattle Representatives.
