About Us

Our Story



The Alliance for Hispanic Commercial Contractors formed in 2016 in partnership with The Barbour Group and Cool & Associates LLC, to promote the growth, prosperity and participation of Hispanic Commercial Contractors in procuring commercial and government contracts through education, training and guidance.

Proudly partnering with notable construction, banking and legal minds to provide the instruction for the learning modules to be presented in-person and online.ᅠ Mentorship and interactive training is at the forefront of our mission to enable success and competitive fairness to grow the Hispanic owned commercial construction firms in the Mid-Atlantic Region.
