Few people can say they’ve had a passion for their field since childhood, but Victor Milbourne can. In 1948, his grandfather founded one of the few minority-owned construction businesses in Philadelphia, and at just five years old, Victor was helping him build churches and other buildings in his home city. “I didn’t realize what we were doing at the time, but I knew we were creating something important,” he says. His grandfather passed when Victor was 17, and his appreciation grew for both the industry and his familial history of military service. After serving a decade as a U.S. Army combat engineer, Victor became a project manager at IBM, developing projects for Fortune 500 companies, then a real estate investment mentor and construction manager at large public and private firms.

 

In 2007, Victor launched Military Construction, LLC, a general contracting and real estate development company that focuses on providing cost-effective services to the federal government. As founder, president, and CEO of this SDVOSB- and minority-owned firm, he combines his talent and instincts with multiple degrees to lead a team that delivers solutions for new construction, renovation, design build, project management and maintenance, industrial and commercial painting, and more. Today, Military Construction stands as a triple winner of Best of Wayne: General Contractor for 2020-2022, with Victor also named among NYC Journal’s Top 50 Entrepreneurs Under 50.

 

Over the past 15 years, the company has delivered over 50 projects for the federal government, including the Department of Veterans’ Affairs and Fort Belvoir, and 50 more for the City of Philadelphia. They’ve also completed projects for over 100 private-sector clients—from casinos to malls, like Northeast Tower Center, and national banks. This in addition to working with the Army Corps of Engineers in multiple districts throughout the eastern U.S.

 

“With every pipe we lay, every hole we dig, every task we’re given and nail that’s driven, I feel close to my grandfather,” Victor shares. “I’m carrying on his legacy of not only construction, but pride in workmanship, high ethics, morals, and just good business.”

 

Victor holds an MBA in entrepreneurship, bachelor’s in both management of information systems and finance, and a certificate in construction management.
