The Way We Work

Civida is implementing a new contractor-procurement process for small interior and exterior projects. This includes services such as General Contracting, Flooring, Millwork, Tub Refinishing, Siding/Stucco, Eaves and Soffits, Asphalt, and Concrete work.

Civida will source and maintain a listing of pre-qualified general contractors and specialists that can be engaged for various projects across the city.

By implementing this new process for small projects, Civida anticipates greater flexibility and efficiencies for both contractors and Civida.
