Thank you to CHASSE Building Team for Their Generous Support

The Del E. Webb School of Construction (DEWSC) and Sigma Lambda Chi International Construction Honor Society (SLC) at Arizona State University (ASU) maintain a strong program to support the Construction education and, above all, our next generation of builders. We recognize that we are not alone in this endeavor and owe much of our success to the generous support of our industry sponsors.

With the sponsorship of CHASSE Building Team, one of the leading general contractors and construction managers in Arizona, DEWSC and SLC have gifted over 70 hard hats for construction graduates in Spring 2018. The hard hat is the symbol of construction industry, it helps protecting the head from injury due to falling objects, impact with other objects, debris, rain, and electric shock. These donated hard hats remind the students about their education and give them an opportunity to join the industry with confidence.

CHASSE Building Team was created in 2007 with the purpose of “Building to make a difference”. The team has grown exponentially ever since. In 2017, the team had over 100 members, earned repeat works from multiple clients, and donated over $3M to the community. CHASSE Building Team is one of the biggest supporters of ASU and SSEBE. They have been employing many ASU grads including Barry Chasse, founder of the team. They are looking to hire entry-level Project Engineers and interns throughout the year.

ASU-led project to rebuild tribal housing with eye to future, rooted in tradition

Gila River Indian Community residents haven’t chosen their housing since the 1800s.Their U.S. government-furnished homes are uninspired, inefficient and lacking reference to culture, experts say.A community-led research project headed up by Arizona State University has the potential to turn it all around.“Indigenous people have an interrupted history in North America,” said Wanda Dalla Costa, a visiting eminent scholar from Canada based in ASU’s School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment.
