Austin’s policy is to involve qualified minority, women, disadvantaged, small, and veteran business enterprises to the greatest extent feasible at both the first-tier and sub-tier levels. Many of the projects we build, either by contractual obligation or owner expectation, require us to engage a certain percentage of Minority/Women/Small Business Enterprise (MWSBE) participation. As a result, Austin’s track record for engagement and involvement in the MWSBR community is unmatched in our industry.

Most importantly, we recognize that diversity-based economic development is vital to the success of our business and the community. To this end, Austin and its subcontractors do not discriminate based on race, color, religion, age, national origin, or gender in the award and performance of contracts.
