Builders step up for college’s construction program


swicdonationThe Southern Illinois Construction Advancement Program and Southern Illinois Builders Association recently donated $25,000 to the Construction Management Technology Program at Southwestern Illinois College. The donation will strengthen and advance educational offerings related to construction technology and integrate current scanning technology into SWIC’s Computer Applications and B.I.M. curriculum. Items that will be purchased with this donation include: hand held and static scanners including software and training for both pieces. This technology is an essential communication tool for the construction industry as it evolves toward collaboration-based project delivery methods.
