VSGI,LLC – Construction Services Series

History

VSGI Construction Services is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) which provides project and construction management services. We are focused on support to the Dept of Defense, Dept of Energy, General Services Administration, the Veterans Administration and large private sector companies. Founded in 2008 by Frederick “Rick” Harbour and his late brother Jeffery Harbour, the vision of VSGI LLC is to be the leader in the SDVOSB marketplace.

Originally named Veteran Service Group of Illinois, Rick Harbour quickly recognized that the growth potential of VSGI far exceeds the borders of our home state.  Depending on the product need and size of the assignment, VSGI and its partners are now positioned to consider helping clients almost anywhere in the United States.

In 2009 Carl Wendell, formerly of AECOM Technology, legacy Austin AECOM, and The Austin Company, joined Rick Harbour to help lead the new construction company.  Wendell brought 25 years of integrated design-build and construction management experience to VSGI Construction Services, and also self-perform general trade construction and project management skills.  Wendell and Harbour brought staff from each of their pasts, and new staff to form a group of highly trained professionals.

In addition to our own staff, VSGI Construction Services has proactively entered into joint-ventures and teaming arrangements to both control our growth and provide more comprehensive solutions. We can provide leadership for full design-build or construction management projects, or we can provide specialty construction support services to clients and larger contractors in areas such as safety, quality, and project controls.   This collective approach can help both the public sector government agencies as well as the private sector meet their diversity goals and expand capabilities.

VSGI Construction Services has a core of highly trained and experienced professionals with a reputation for problem solving, quality control and developing customized solutions to meet each of our unique client needs. The collective processes and the pride we have in our past work, and the communities several of our employees have served have been the differentiating factors our clients recognize.  Whether you are a government agency, a private corporation, or a construction manager or AE firm working with one, we are ready to help and look forward to growing with you.
