“The vital power of an imaginative work demands a diversity with its unity; and the stronger the diversity, the more massive the unity.”

– D. L. Sayers

It is the enduring commitment of Kirlin Builders, LLC to provide opportunity, stimulate economic growth, and encourage professional development, both through employment with our firm, and through our vendor and subcontractor relationships.

Diversity is vital to every project we pursue at Kirlin.  The uniqueness of individual strengths, ideas, and viewpoints, contribute to the collective that is key to Kirlin Builders’ success.  Kirlin Builders is wholly focused on the satisfaction of our customers through the on-time delivery of quality construction products, through the power of a diverse workforce and network of subcontractors who significantly and consistently contribute to our more than 20-year history of accomplishment of that goal.

At Kirlin Builders, we understand that in order to grow, we must always look for ways to improve what we do.  To ensure our ability to provide our customers and stakeholders the quality and value Kirlin Builders is known for, Kirlin looks to the horizon at a multifaceted sea of individuals and businesses who bring new technology, innovation, and perspectives to the construction industry.

Internships, Mentor Protégé and Joint Venture Programs, Subcontractor Outreach, and Strategic Teaming are just some of the programs that we hope will continue to attract qualified candidates and business partners to be a part of the Kirlin Team.

At Kirlin Builders we continually strive to develop unique, dynamic employee and business relationships with qualified candidates and subcontractors, from Large to Small Businesses and Disadvantaged firms.  We seek to foster long-term sustainable relationships with individuals whose service philosophy, commitment to results and the on-time delivery of a quality product, is in line with our business philosophy.

At Kirlin Builders we hope to be a meaningful part of your professional journey in the construction industry.

Kirlin Builders understands the complexity of navigating the Federal Contracting arena, and the challenges faced by small businesses who seek to expand their foothold in the Federal Construction Marketplace.

Kirlin Builders regularly reviews the performance of our subcontractors through their responsiveness to Bid Invitations, competitive pricing, on-time delivery of service, professionalism, and quality of work.

Through our ongoing efforts to ensure Small Business Participation in the Federal Contracting arena, Kirlin Builders has developed a Strategic Partnership program where we identify those subcontractors who have demonstrated quality performance and a professional business model to match our own, and make partners of those exemplary subcontractors.

The SBA Mentor Protégé and Joint Venture programs of Kirlin Builders give qualified SBA 8a Certified firms the opportunity to gain additional experience, enhanced capabilities and financial support to pursue larger projects they could not previously obtain on their own.
