This week is National Women in Construction Week which is celebrated to highlight women as a visible component of the construction industry. WIC Week also provides an occasion to raise awareness of the opportunities available for women in the construction industry and to emphasize the growing role of women in the industry.It is also a time for local chapters to give back to their communities.

We want to take this opportunity to celebrate three amazing ladies we have working at Derrick Custom Homes! These three enable Derrick Custom Homes to operate efficiently and ensures the quality and timeliness of our work is the best of the best. We are so thankful to have each one as a part of our team. We are also thankful for the construction project management software that helps all workers including these amazing women to do their jobs in an extremely productive and efficient manner.
