TRI-Construction is a minority owned general contracting company that was established in 2001. The company has rapidly evolved over the past fifteen years from a property maintenance company to a residential construction company to now operating as a commercial general contracting construction company.
In 2001, Lester Royal and Calvin Littlejohn packed all of the tools and equipment that they owned and threw it in the back of their silver pickup truck and started out of their journey to build their own construction company – TRI-Construction. As a minority owned and operated company Lester and Calvin recognized the importance and value of the participation of small and underutilized businesses, people of color and women and other targeted members of the community. With this is mind Lester and Calvin established the company mission of Community, Construction and Development.
Located in the heart of North Minneapolis and aligned with the company mission, TRI-Construction is deeply rooted in the community and is very committed to the community and the people who live and work there. With a very intentional focus on TRI-Construction’s core values of People, Partnerships and Projects the company will continue to develop long-term community based relationships in efforts to cultivate community development, provide employment and resources to people in the community.
