Official recognition of your Women- or Minority-owned business enterprise (WMBE
Presenter Kristin Liu, LEED AP, senior associate business development, Syska Hennessy, spoke of Syska's contribution to the United Nations Capital Master Plan renovation, a project incorporating many WMBEs
and reflecting Fitzpatrick's passion for "high-performance solutions" and advocacy of energy conservation.
Shults noted, too, that over the past three years, 85% of RGI buildings have achieved LEED certification, and that RGI greatly supports the role of WMBEs
"Working with WENIG, I noticed how the requirements for WMBE
(Women & Minority Business Enterprises) often prompted us to sub out all or part of our contracts.
An additional plus is that it adds an avenue of outreach for companies to help WMBEs
since many PWC members are certified as such," she explained.
Tonight's gathering is a testament to how much has been accomplished to bring WMBEs
to work on projects of this scope and magnitude."
