Shafiq R. Fulcher Abdussabur is a construction professional with a diverse skill set who leverages an inherent attention to detail to master the administration of even the most complex construction projects. Shafiq has developed and authored a series of Sustainable Urban Job Creation workshops, that we believe as they are implemented though out the preconstruction period will create a stronger base for City of New Haven Minority Bidders. Thoughhisextensivebackgroundof Business Growth in New Haven and experience as the President of Eco-Urban Pioneers he has established many relationship in the New Haven SBE market. His knowledge of the constraints hindering the growth in this segment of subcontracting provides him with the insight to educate these Contractors so they too can experience growth in the Urban Sector and more particularly in the City of New Haven School Construction. During construction he will ensure the compliance and that the projects are proceeding as planned.

Ismail Abdussabur will be finishing his program in Mechanical Engineering from Central Connecticut State University in May of 2017. The opportunity to mentor a seasoned Construction Manager such as Chris Malerba who is also a Graduate of CCSU is a natural transition into the CM world. Ismail is a graduate of Amistad High School, in New Haven, CT where he has repeatability showed his leadership abilities. He was the first student from school to take two elective courses at once, first to play a collegiate sport, and the 4 years lead scorer and team leader for the Amistad Lacrosse team. Ismail will assist Chris Malerba in coordinating all aspects of construction management and will be primarily focused on the SBE Set Aside. Under Chris’s guidance he will perform all of the tasks from Preconstruction to Close Out and gain the knowledge needed to apply the skills he has acquired from the program at CCSU. As the Strong school is to advance education by helping students learn on a university campus, we believe the same will be achieved by the partnership of Ismail and Chris on this school construction project.
