Description

Introduction

Cube Root Corporation is a Certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE), a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and certified 8 (a) small business headquartered in the heart of Washington, DC. We specialize in construction management, program and project planning, project management, program management, facilities management and engineering services.

Our passion is to provide professional advice to policy makers, developers, fellow engineers and others in the facilities planning, design and construction. As a company and as individuals, we are committed to the highest ethical standards and hold ourselves accountable to our clients, but most importantly to the communities, that depend on our work. We take on big challenges and are committed to seeing them through to a successful conclusion.

We are also proud of our commitment to expand opportunities for people in underrepresented communities.

This position is an exciting learning opportunity as part of a $450M construction of a new hospital on the campus of the St. Elizabeth’s Hospital grounds.
