Upper Marlboro Businesses Nab National Harbor Building Contracts
Some of Upper Marlboro's minority business owners have won contracts with National Harbor construction.
Four Upper Marlboro businesses will be helping with new development at the National Harbor, after winning contracts by participating in a Prince George's Community College (PGCC) program.
PGCC's Center for Minority Business Development (CMBD) offers The Accelerator Program, which helps minority business owners compete for and win contracts for major developments like at the National Harbor.
“Participants in the Accelerator Program learn how to better manage their firms, improve back office operations, meet industry standards and embrace cutting-edge technologies,” said Carl E. Brown, Jr., executive director of Center for Minority Business Development at Prince George’s Community College.
Six Prince George's County minority businesses won contracts including the following in Upper Marlboro:
- NDB Services, LLC’s won the contract for the carpentry at Rosa Mexicana.
- K. Dixon Architecture, PLLC won the contract as the architect for Galina Perova Fine Art Gallery.
- Lendana Construction Company, LCC won the contract as sidewalks pavers for Peterson Companies at National Harbor.
- Rich Moe Enterprises, LLC won the contract as the prime general contractor for office build out, MGM Resorts International at National Harbor.
PGCC established the CMBD through a $5 million grant from the Peterson Companies in 2009 in order to increase the number of minority businesses and help them compete for work in Prince George’s County.
