Sweet Group recognizes the history and contributions of Black professionals in the construction industry. From the first Black AIA Architects, Paul Revere Williams and Norma Merrick Sklareck to many of the Black Owned Minority and Women Owned Contractors, the construction industry would not be what it is today without these pioneers, visionaries and leaders. Sweet is committed to working with a diverse group of contractors and vendors to increase diversity on our construction projects. We will continue to support and develop relationships with Minority & Women Owned Business Enterprises and support our partners, such as the National Association of Minority Contractors, the Women Builders Council and Professional Women in Construction.


Sweet Group would like to congratulate Danielle Pemberton, Doug Lauria, and Jerry Botti on their well-deserved promotions!

Andre and Dante informed potential candidates of upcoming opportunities. Sweet also connected with Minority/Women Business Enterprises, non-profits, and workforce development companies that aim to diversify and break down barriers in the construction field.

As we are more than a month into the new year, Sweet Group recognizes one of the major challenges that contractors will face - Insurance Renewal. Insurance is essential for any contractor to do work while protecting workers and their business from liabilities that may occur. Sweet Group recommends that contractors become familiar with their insurance policies, ensure that they correspond with their trades and/or specialties, and keep complete copies of all insurance policies. It is important to work with your broker to ensure that all policies provide adequate coverage for your employees, business and business partners.
