Royal Concrete Concepts, a manufacturer of pre-engineered concrete building systems, announced that it was recently certified as a HUBZone business. The certification allows the company to better compete for billions of dollars of goods and services in federal contracts each year.

“This certification provides a tremendous opportunity for Royal Concrete to do business with the federal government. It opens a whole new avenue for us to target new business ventures, and as our company grows the benefits will extend from our future to our existing customers,” said Ken Treadwell, Royal’s executive vice president.

While Royal Concrete has extensive military project experience-including building and delivering housing units to the U.S. Coast Guard at Great Inagua Island and the U.S. Navy at Andros Island in The Bahamas-the HUBZone certification will help increase the number of federal contracts accessible to the company. Classified as Very Low Maintenance, Royal Concrete’s building systems have been designed and engineered for the U.S. military’s Bachelor Enlisted Quarters, Advanced Individual Training dormitories, as well as Warrior in Transition barracks. All buildings meet the required Progressive Collapse requirements and Unified Facilities Criteria.
