New Contract Opportunities

Many construction end-users, developers, and general contractors exclusively use contractors that have a unionized workforce. These construction stakeholders will not even consider using contractors that are non-union. Contractors that are partnered with SMART 33 are able to pursue projects from these stakeholders.
