Some of its most iconic projects include Metro Business Solution Center, High Speed Rail, Jordan Downs, and the SoFi Stadium.
Founder Del Richardson was driven to found the Inglewood-headquartered company when he discovered through his research that a project in Indio, CA was displacing a community of Black people and that the firms that oversaw this project had no Black employee. From that experience, Richardson built his company with the goal to ensure that local communities of color have a voice in construction projects that take place in their neighborhoods.
DRA’s commitment to the local community does not stop there. It has a wide range of community initiatives that include assist youth in accessing college, buy local youth prom dresses and suits, mentor and tutor local youth, provide companionship to the elderly, and put together food baskets for families living in under-resourced communities. Founder Richardson personally gives back to the community by mentoring and investing in local solopreneurs and micro businesses.
