Burney & Burney Construction Recent Graduate from HUB Contractors College
Congratulations to local, MWBE firm Burney & Burney Construction recent graduate of the NC Office for Historically Underutilized Businesses' (HUB) Contractors College. Ten (10) contractors from various segments of the construction industry completed the eight-week week College held in Rocky Mount, NC at the Barnhill Training Facility.

Contractors are now positioned to take advantage of new construction opportunities coming through the Connect NC bonds, where millions are scheduled to be invested in infrastructure improvements to Eastern NC's university and community college campuses.
