In the Minority: Pacific Consulting Group Announces New Business Certifications

01/10/2014 | Pacific Consulting Group

Pacific Consulting Group (PCG), a 3D architectural rendering and animation firm based in Houston, announces several new minority business certifications. The certifications come as more PCG clients are pursuing and delivering publicly funded projects with minority participation requirements.

PCG is now certified as a State of Texas historically underutilized business (HUB) and a woman-owned business enterprise (WBEA) as part of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council. PCG is also a registered supplier for MD Anderson. PCG will leverage these certifications in their work with architects, developers and contractors pursuing public sector projects.

“It is very important to carefully select teammates when you need to supplement your services to fully address a project scope,” according to Hilda Rodriguez, founder of Hilda Rodriguez Architecture/Planning/Interiors. “PCG is a perfect partner; they are certified as a minority owned business, their work is fast, great quality, and they ensure you are satisfied with results. PCG's certifications allow us to have them as business partners in multiple projects."

Such tactics have helped PCG to expand the business and work with a greater number of clients. This year PCG rose to #16 on the Houston Business Journal Top 25 Graphic Design Firms list.

“Texas is a remarkable business environment and one that is very supportive of diversity,” comments Jing. “These certifications will open pathways to partnering with design firms at an even more strategic level, and we will be able to bring our unique point of view to the table. As the need for 3D visualization services arise on their projects, PCG looks forward to meeting new clients and helping existing clients meet the state requirements for HUB, WBEA and MBE design and construction contracts.”

Indeed, Texas is ranked among the highest of U.S. states for growth in women-owned businesses. According to a 2013 report from American Express OPEN, the number of women-owned firms nationally has increased by 59% since 1997. The top three states with the fastest growth in the number of women-owned firms over the past 16 years are: Georgia (up 112%), Texas (93%), and North Carolina (91%).

Clients cite PCG for quick project delivery and competitive pricing. The PCG business model incorporates a round-the-clock delivery and production team, with rendering staff based in China, in order to deliver visualization services faster than typical in-house production.
