DJ Lowe - Document Coordinator
"We work as a team that maintains integrity throughout all our projects. We continue to demonstrate quality and consistency in all that we do. At EDiS, we value and love people first and projects second."
At EDiS Company we have a passion for people and continuous innovation that culminates in a desire to positively impact all the communities in which we serve. It is our goal to reflect and represent these communities to better share the joys of construction and the advantages of a diverse work force. Building enduring relationships with our clients, industry partners, and of course, each other, is essential to company culture and the growth of the construction industry as a whole. This culture of inclusion encourages new ideas and experiences, values, and engages everyone involved. While EDiS Company has been evolving for more than a century, we know there is still work to be done, and that work starts with unity in Building What Matters.
No Barriers for Safety
EDiS Company knows the importance of distributing knowledge to all communities so that everyone can stay healthy and informed. Language should never be a barrier in keeping our communities safe.
Women In Construction
With a new decade here, women continue to influence and equalize the ratio of men to women in construction and construction consulting. EDiS Company is proud to support the goals of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) as they lead the initiative in raising awareness of the opportunities available for women in the construction industry and emphasize the growing role of women in the industry as a whole. These are values we see and wish to reflect in our own workforce and will continue to do so as the stigma of women in construction slowly fades away.
Sharing the Joys of Construction Essay Competition
Looking to be inspired by the young builders of the future, EDiS asks Delaware youth to share the joys of construction with our communities. The Sharing the Joys of Construction Essay Competition was created for Delaware trade and vocational high school students to shine a spotlight on the positive impact diversity has in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. Students write about individuals who have inspired them or have had a positive impact on the built environment. Winners receive a cash prize and recognition for their efforts in inspiring their generation and the next. You can read the essays from this year’s cohort here: Aa’khai Hollis, Sydney Marie Luckey, Dallas Jerome Dixon, and Rocio Garduno-Castaneda.
Educating the Youth
We strongly believe that minority workers are not seen in construction because they do not see themselves in construction. In other words, the less they see themselves represented, the less they wish to represent. To combat this, EDiS Company has worked to educate all communities on the many joys of construction and what it can bring to the table. Working with local communities and organizations to educate early on means a more diverse workforce in the future. Construction competitions, summits, classes, volunteer work, and career fairs are all ways in which we strive to educate.
EDiS Company has recently engaged in efforts to see that we follow the values of diversity in the work place by hiring a consultant to guide in our hiring processes from a diverse job pool. In addition, we follow the lead of Superintendent Michael Buck and Document Coordinator DJ Lowe as they work to create a diversity committee at the Delaware Contractors Association to more effectively expand the reach and impact of our industry into the African-American community.
