Building for the Future: UC's Construction Management Program Awarded State Funding

Construction Management Building Drawing

One of Utica College’s fastest growing majors will soon have a new home, thanks in part to Governor Andrew Cuomo's Regional Economic Development Council initiative.

On December 13, 2017, Governor Cuomo announced more than $755 million in economic and community development resources awarded through the 2017 Regional Economic Development Council competition, a statewide initiative designed to jumpstart the economy and create jobs. Utica College will receive $700,000 toward the construction of a stand-alone 15,000-square foot building on campus to accommodate the rising enrollment in the Construction Management major.

Located adjacent to Hubbard Hall, the modern, two-story facility will incorporate smart classrooms, instructional spaces and labs, and a multi-use auditorium, all with a modular design that allows for further expansion.

George Nehme, vice president for advancement at Utica College, said the total cost of the new facility is expected to be $4.1 million. Construction is contingent upon the balance of the money being raised, he said. The bulk of the funding will come from private philanthropy, Nehme said.

The construction management major offers a balanced focus on technical construction knowledge and the managerial, financial, and planning skills necessary for implementing construction activities. Since 2008, 100 percent of UC CM graduates have secured a job before they graduate.
