Right. However, if you must use the " - " but with a space on either side. The TiTle above is too long, and NOBOdy is going to look up "Resource," so you should just drop it.
I would do it this way:

<"Construction Management. Architects, Contractors, Design. Virgin Islands.

But, agai, these are your keywords, not mine :)
