Family-owned MBE Firm Gets the Job Done at Madison Park Village III

Leroy and Janice Cumberbatch are no strangers to hard work.  The husband and wife team own and operate International Construction and Development (ICD), a local MBE general contracting firm hired to work on the interior construction of Madison Park Village III.

Leroy Cumberbatch began working in carpentry as a  high school student in his native country of Barbados.  After moving to the United States in 1988 and becoming an electrical tradesman, he launched ICD as a general contractor in 1994.  Janice manages the bookkeeping and cashflow for ICD, and as Leroy proudly boasts, "Janice helps out a lot, and often is even willing to strap a toolbelt on and work alongside me to get the job done."

The interior construction of Madison Park Village III is ICD's largest project to date, and one that Leroy is hopeful will lead to more substantial opportunities for his minority-owned business.  MPDC has also hired ICD on past jobs, including Dudley Greenville apartments, and plans to work with the firm again on future projects.

Keeping the business in the family is important to Leroy and Janice who are optimistic that their daughter will assume more responsiblity at ICD once she completes her degree in computer engineering at Wentworth Institute of Technology.

It has been a pleasure working with ICD, and we wish them an abundance of success in the future.
