Two years after completing the CU Grow Vendor Development program, Harlem-based AR Construction is reaching new heights with projects inside and outside of Columbia
The CU Grow Vendor Development program hosted its first procurement event of 2020, bringing together the program’s fourth cohort of minority-, women-, and locally-owned (MWL) firms, alumni, project managers from Columbia University Facilities & Operations, and partner organizations to discuss upcoming business opportunities and solutions.
