A Steadfast Commitment to DEI, Mentorship & Sustainability

Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) has enabled us to provide formal and informal mentoring services to several of New York’s leading public owners, including the MTA, NYC School Construction Authority, NYC Small Business Services and on many select construction assignments for private owners and contractors.

Founder & CEO Deborah Bradley fought the bias against women in construction by sheer performance: learning all she could about the MWBE requirements of City, State and Federal contracting, developing her contacts and radiating a will to succeed—even though women comprised only three percent of the construction industry. DBC has ingrained diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) into the fabric of its culture and mission.

As a business owner, a resident of Manhattan’s Upper West Side and a proud mother of three, Deborah is committed to teaching and mentoring young women entering the construction industry as well as helping other small MWBE companies grow and prosper. Deborah is also involved with several advocacy organizations in the construction industry, including the Regional Alliance of Small Contractors and the NYC Building Congress. She is also past President of the Women Builders Council and a Board member of Women Construction Owners & Executives.

Improving Our Local Community

On June 1, 2009, DBC moved to their newly purchased building at 120th and Manhattan Ave in Harlem. The company took this opportunity to renovate the location with sustainability and community in mind.  Focusing on green design, DBC completed systematic upgrades to the utilities. The office can now enjoy reduced energy costs and work in a more modern space.
