Build Colorado Coronavirus Update - May 29th, 2020

The construction industry continues its strict compliance to the State of Colorado COVID -19  recommendations and doing all they can to stay healthy on the job sites. They continue to build Colorado - for the sake of our community and our future.

We know we will get through this by working together and practicing safe habits each and every day. 

The staff of the Associated General Contractors, the Construction Education Foundation, the Construction Contractors Association are mostly still working from home while the Hispanic Contractors Council is conducting its business from their offices. When employees slowly return to their offices they are practicing social distancing and have strict safety protocols in place. They all remain passionately committed to providing exemplary services and education to their members as we all work our way through the pandemic.

The groups continue to work hard on the much needed workforce development programs in place as our industries need to recruit new people continues. 

The 1st ever Construction Careers Now virtual class was very successful resulting in 42 graduates that also participated in the 1st ever virtual hiring fair. Fifteen construction companies participated with the graduates and are now doing personal interviews with their selected candidates for employment. The next CCN class begins June 1st and registration is even stronger than in the first virtual class. A 3rd virtual CCN class will start on July 6th and registration is open now. 

Our Careers in Construction program and High School Construction Connection programs are still being evaluated pending school district considerations temporarily. Updates will be posted on the Build Colorado website.  

Stay healthy and positive - rest assured our industry will remain strong. Please do not hesitate to call or email us as needed – Bryan@cefcolorado.org or 720.413.1888
