Get to Know US

When we say we’re on a mission to empower lives, we mean it.

Get to know US and you’ll find an organization that works as hard for its people and community as it does for its customers. 

Founded in 2001, we’ve humbly grown from a handful of hardworking guys and gals to 100+ diverse employees working all across the Greater Rochester area. As an award-winning NYS Certified Minority- and Woman-owned Business Enterprise (M/WBE), we’re committed to creating inclusive, equitable employment opportunities and communities that thrive, which is why we strive to partner with like-minded organizations, such as the Urban League of Rochester’s YouthBuild program, Champion Academy and Young Women’s College Prep.

Our workforce development program, USC Academy, allows us to continue investing in our talented team by providing skilled trades and soft skills training.  It’s also become a wonderful mantle to promote the construction industry to others who may be looking for a viable career path.

“We bring a personal commitment to empowering communities, building economic self-reliance and changing lives where we live and work.”
-Melissa Geska, president
