UConn: Building Excellence for the Future

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Click on the video below to learn more about the program from CBC President Nathan Whetten, Freeman Companies, and CBC President-Elect Amar Shamas, Gilbane Building Company

UConn is well underway in the implementation phase of more than $1.5 billion in capital projects under Next Generation Connecticut, as well as high-level plans for other new construction, renovations, and infrastructure changes and improvements.  Existing plans for the UConn Tech Park, Athletics, Residential Life, and landscaping are all incorporated. 

The comprehensive Master Plan will help shape the physical development of  UConn's  flagship campus for the next 20 years. The plan is intended to help guide UConn’s capital investments and ensure that the construction and placement of buildings, utilities, transportation, and other infrastructure components support the University’s mission and academic plan.  

We welcome college and high school students with an interest in the design and construction industry, especially those from UConn engineering and environmental programs and CBC's alliance colleges: Capital Community College Construction Management and Engineering Technology program and Central Connecticut State University Construction Management program. Learn about the industry and build your network. Please register using your college email address.
