What we do
For 20 years, Kuniklo has provided contract compliance services for housing and transportation construction projects. In addition, our outreach and workforce development programs involve and directly benefit the community. We specialize in alternative delivery and long-term projects, from planning, procurement, design, through preconstruction and construction.
We have a deep understanding of contractual agreements between owners and contractors, as well as between primes and subcontractors. Since 2003, we have directly supported publicly funded projects with requirements for M/WBE utilization, training and hiring program, and labor compliance consulting. Each resulted in verifiable metrics of project requirements.
Regardless of the project magnitude, having access to a skilled labor force is essential. Our team invests in the development of the workforce for our clients during the project. We work closely with local partners to increase capacity of small contractors, attract and recruit labor, and find advancement opportunities so that labor demands can be met per schedule.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core to Kuniklo's approach to economic impact. Whether it's identifying and addressing barriers for subcontractors, recruiting and training local workers, or ensuring each worker is paid fairly and correctly, we understand the impact that infrastructure investment makes to underserved communities.

"Creating economic opportunity wherever we go"
Each day, we ask ourselves, "What can I do today to help someone get paid?" Sometimes, its tracking down paperwork from subcontractors so project payments are not delayed for the prime contractor. Other times, it's ensuring a workers is paid correctly for the job performed or connecting a job seeker to an opportunity. Even agencies appreciate timely and correct documentation so they can process reimbursements.
Our workforce development team promotes the opportunities of construction careers. We reach out to individuals at all stages of their career development - from grade school through career transition. We support recruitment and training efforts specific to each project team. Additionally, the team utilizes multiple channels of distribution to inform the public of job opportunities available on current and upcoming projects.
