Barbour Spangle earns HUB certification
February 17, 2017,
Barbour Spangle Design, a High Point-based, award-winning design firm, received HUB certification from the state of North Carolina recently.
HUB, an acronym for Historically Underutilized Business, is given to select companies following a rigorous application, vetting and certification process. The state’s Department of Administration — which acts as the state government’s business manager — seeks out HUB-certified businesses when offering bids for key projects.
Barbour Spangle Design, headed up by Christi Spangle, standing, and Christi Barbour, was recently recognized with HUB certification by the state of North Carolina.
Spangle also noted that attaining the certification can help other leading architects and builders with whom Barbour Spangle partners by putting those firms in a better position to be awarded top jobs. “It makes us a better partner,” she said.
Since achieving the certification, Barbour Spangle Design also received the Outstanding Achievement in Professional Service Award from the Minority/Women Business Enterprise group, an honor Spangle attributes in part to the HUB certification.
