  How Cal Poly Created a New Minor in Heavy Civil Construction
Last year a new minor in Heavy Civil Construction was developed and approved at Cal Poly - it is a Cross-Disciplinary Minor between the Construction Management Department in the CAED and the Civil Engineering Department in the Engineering College.  The steps necessary to bring this about and the first year of enactment will be described and detailed.

  Case Study: Construction Management Program Supports Construction Workforce Training
The aging of current construction workers and the lack of qualifications and experience of new graduates is a problem in keeping balance between productivity and profit in the construction sector. The construction sector in the state of Wyoming plays a fundamental role in the economic well-being of the state; however, current construction workforce training in Wyoming is limited. This lack of training caused construction skill attainment to lag behind that of adjacent states. This reality and its effects on the Wyoming economy was acknowledged by the Wyoming Legislature in prompting the Governor of Wyoming, Mark Gordon, to sign a proclamation announcing the month of October as a “Career in Construction Month” in the State of Wyoming. The Wyoming Legislator and the University of Wyoming (UW) has committed to the development of a four-year Bachelor of Science in Construction Management program at UW.

The Construction Management program has created a tandem program to train the thousands of construction workers already employed across the state, and who are not able to commit to a traditional training platform. With the support of the construction associations across the state, the following five training modules were designed: Construction Documents and Contracts, Construction Plan Reading, Construction Bidding and Estimating, Construction Scheduling, and Construction Site Management. These modules are offered to companies and their workers at no cost while they are employed in the field, with the promise to obtain a higher education attainment level and eventually earn a higher wage. Due to COVID restriction, the training is offered via Zoom from the UW campus. The time commitment associated with a module is 8 hours, where learners receive a certificate of completion upon successful completion. When workers are well-trained, their companies also benefit; thus, improving the overall economic well-being of all. This case study is ongoing in nature to be expanded to high schools across the state to overcome the projected shortfall of qualified construction workers in upcoming years in the state.

Lessons learned participating in the 2020 Solar Decathlon Competition to design and build a Net Positive Energy Home
A reflection on the good, the bad, the ugly of participating in the Department of Energy 2020 Solar Decathlon Local Build Challenge. Students collaborated with the local city planning and building departments to design and construct a Net Positive Energy home. We will discuss what went well, what was a challenge and where students got a real world education in how a budget and schedule are a moving target.

  Why and how mass timber construction is disrupting construction project management and the way we build.
Over the past several years, the built environment has seen a race to build taller with wood and mass timber. In less than 10 years, more than 40 building projects have pushed higher the height limit to build with wood and what is now defined as mass timber construction. Mass timber construction is grabbing headlines around the globe. In 2021, both Canada and the United States will introduce changes to their respective building codes standardizing the construction of tall buildings using wood as the primary construction material. In 2019, Natural Resources Canada indicated that there were over 500 mass timber mid-rise projects at various stages of development, construction or completion. That included the 18-story Brock Commons, one of the world’s tallest building made primarily of mass timber. A newer project, 77 Wade, will be Canada’s tallest commercial mass timber development at 8 stories.

In addition to reviewing the changes to the building codes, this presentation will highlight the rationale and disruptive impacts of mass timber construction. Amongst the key indicators are: sustainability, constructability and low construction costs. The construction project management perspective for a 10-storey case study building model will be presented.

The followings are some of the learning objectives expected from this presentation:

1. Recognizing the types for mass timber construction
2. Identifying the rationale for using mass timber in construction
3. Reviewing the impacts of mass timber construction on construction project management

Engage Your Students For More Proficiency Using Procore
Students are expected to know how to leverage technology on their projects as they enter their internships and first jobs after graduation. This session will cover a basic overview of Procore functionality and our educational resources available to all professors. We will also be focusing on how to leverage student certifications for industry employers, and the ASC Construction Expertise Exchange, a website being built in conjunction with ACCE members to share content & expertise among a broad network of  educators. Additionally, we will share how to access additional Procore resources, such as our community user groups like women in construction, our construction job board for students, our covid-19 resource center, and our upcoming data in construction courses.
