Most people don't lok at the title anyway so this works well, you might also want to get rid of the caps, AV and IS are case sensitive. and people search lower case most of the time.

looks like you're at 103 characters. how about going with;

construction management design; architects contractors resource


only 63 characters, no stop words, lower case, and "US Virgin Islands" shouldnt be too competitive with the other keywords so if you get it into the text you should be ok.
