Austin Commercial has a fully-staffed Diversity Affairs department that assists Austin Commercial and its efforts with their long-standing and award-winning commitment of enhancing procurement and economic development opportunities for small, minority, disadvantaged, historically underutilized and women-owned businesses (MSWBEs) on the projects for which we are responsible for.
“Many of the projects in which we are associated with are funded, built and staffed by the individuals and business communities the project is intended to serve,” said Brad Brown, Austin Commercial President. “We not only support this as good business practice, we welcome the opportunity to partner with project owners and demonstrate how Austin’s approach and processes can enhance the impact of local businesses for the good of their project.”
In addition, Austin Commercial focuses on improving workforce development opportunities within the communities we work by participating in mentoring, training and education of existing diverse businesses and local high school and college students.
These efforts and initiatives are bolstered by Austin’s own commitment to recognizing, embracing and supporting workplace diversity and inclusiveness at every level of our own organization.

• LAX Tom Bradley International Terminal West Gates & Core
• Tampa International Airport ConRAC & APM
• Nashville International Airport ConRAC
• DFW International Airport Terminal D
• Charleston International Airport Terminal Redevelopment and Improvement Program
• Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport ConRAC
