SCHOLARSHIP
The legacy of Power is built through our actions. We believe that bringing different perspectives together helps foster stronger outcomes and we are constantly striving to increase the diversity of our team. Our efforts to financially support students interested in a construction career have been the result of our drive to promote construction management awareness and engagement at the high school level.
SCHOLARS PROGRAM
It's an investment beyond the dollars.
