BLCD’s mission is embedded in community
Opportunity Maker. Social Entrepreneur. Community Builder.
Alexis McSween is the founder and CEO of Bottom Line Construction & Development, LLC (BLCD).
A 100% female owned construction & development firm, BLCD embodies the grit and grace that characterizes Alexis’s life. BLCD’s Youth Construct program, impacting the local area High Schools 11th and 12th grades speaks to it’s ongoing mission of building and developing community through knowledge, opportunities and pathways to success.
Our youth’s employment options are diminishing at a warp speed. Our communities are riddled with students and families that can no longer keep up with the debt of higher education. This curriculum would allow students the opportunity to learn sound construction administration, internship opportunities, management software, key OSHA safety elements and the increasing need for skilled back office administration. The construction administration certificate provides options to taking on higher debt and a Segway to the multitude of construction administrative professions available.
Currently there are certificates, undergraduate and graduate opportunities for adults, construction trade concentrations in the High Schools, but not enough access or training towards the lucrative industry of construction administration.
BLCD’s product could potentially be a partnership of a consortium of schools, government, and larger Construction Management firms to provide a platform for our two-semester curriculum for Juniors and Seniors.
BLCD’s initial funding will be seed funds targeted towards supporting curriculum, a structural designer focused on the target demographic, program development and research
The entire BLCD team, including MaeOla Bolton (former collegiate coach & WNBA player), Thomas Crawley (Architecture & Design), Mahta Ariarad, (Columbia University Business Fellow) and a host of contributing consultants.
