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.

Innovations in Tribal Housing – Presentation December 1, 2016 in CAVC Atrium

Innovations in Tribal House, a presentation of course findings.  December 1, 2016 in the College Avenue Commons 3rd floor atrium.

We welcome you to the Del E. Webb School of Construction to celebrate the results of a new course:

Community-Based Design: Innovations in Tribal Housing (Con 598: Indigenous Project Delivery).

The aim of the course is to investigate affordable, sustainable, energy efficient, and culturally-responsive housing prototypes. The course is a result of collaborations with two Arizona communities, Gila River and Tolani Lake. While each community had different objectives, both were interested in exploring residential construction as an economic generator through self-build, local materials and/or training opportunities.

With the student work on display, we hope to begin a dialogue regarding tribal housing in terms of performance, cost, design, project delivery, innovative materials and alternative energy.  Both Gila River and Tolani Lake will be in attendance. We welcome your input and feedback.

Please RSVP at your earliest convenience to: Brianne.Arviso@asu.edu

Also, save the date for Construction in Indian Country Conference, April 17 – 19, 2017.
