Rising Contractor Benefits

Increased opportunity through relationship building.

Apply for 2022 Sessions

The construction industry is built on relationships. The Gilbane Rising Contractor program is a conduit for our trade partners to foster the relationships that lead to bid invitations and, ultimately, the chance to perform on a project.

In 2020, 36 subcontractor firms successfully completed the Rising Contractor program and reported overwhelmingly positive experiences. Alongside an introduction to Gilbane processes, participants have also entered a one-year mentorship program with Gilbane project executives.

Other program benefits include:

  • Participants develop working relationships with Gilbane personnel in key departments, such as purchasing and estimating.
  • Gain intimate knowledge of "doing business with Gilbane," from bid solicitation to project closeout.
  • Receive step-by-step guidance on Gilbane’s pre-qualification process.
  • Receive automatic bid de-scoping for unsuccessful bids.
  • Priority consideration for inclusion on contractor bid lists
  • Connect contractors with potential partners
  • Senior-level mentor who will be personally invested in getting their assigned firm work with Gilbane

Continued Success Through Mentorship

Once participants have submitted their prequalification application, they will be assigned a Gilbane project executive as a mentor. This ensures the end of the eight-week training program is only the beginning of our work together. Mentorship spans at least one year and consists of:
• Initial meet and greet with Mentor (one hour)
• Monthly check-in meetings
• Site visit to a Gilbane project
• Assistance with Gilbane processes
