Construction Management

We, the Construction Management Faculty members and Staff, congratulate our 2014 Graduates who join more than 3,000 Chico State Bachelor of Science Construction Management alumni currently managing the construction of schools, hospitals, hotels, bridges, highways, water systems, and industrial plants. Our CM grads currently work on most of California’s major projects, as well as projects across the U.S. and the world.

Continuing the CM tradition of community service, our students contribute thousands of hours helping others construct what they are unable to accomplish by themselves. During the past two years CM Faculty members and Students served as leaders and managers of a project to develop, design, and build four transitional housing units for our local Salvation Army. Recent projects include organizing, managing and building of four houses for residents in tornado-devastated Joplin, Missouri; a 2,000-square-foot visitor’s center barn for our local Patrick Ranch Museum as part of the University’s 125th year celebration; four transition cottage units for Catalyst, a local nonprofit serving victims of domestic violence; and rebuilding Katrina ravaged homes in New Orleans.

CM Graduates become an integral and significant part of the Chico State Construction Management community, and we proudly follow their efforts as they construct successful careers.
