A Commitment to Community

We understand that our reputation depends on serving the communities in which we build.  Whether it’s providing basic food and shelter for those in need internationally or investing our time and resources in local organizations and nonprofits at home, we take pride in giving back. It is our duty to help, so we make philanthropy part of who we are.

Overall, we feel it is our duty to help, and strive to make philanthropic efforts a natural choice for all of our employees near and far.

Sustainability comes from the ground up.

BL Harbert views sustainability as a whole-project and whole-business effort: We are concerned with doing the right thing rather than fulfilling requirements—reducing waste in every part of our process, not just from design to completion, but also with regard to the ongoing fiscal responsibility of both what we build and how we build it.
