The University of Massachusetts Amherst has received a $100,000 gift from the Associated General Contractors of Massachusetts (AGC MA) of Wellesley, Mass. The gift, also made possible through the Construction Industry Association of Western Massachusetts in Springfield, will provide support for the building and construction technology (BCT) program and its students. The BCT program is part of the department of environmental conservation in the College of Natural Sciences.

AGC MA is the state's leading commercial construction association. The gift represents the second endowment dedicated to supporting UMass Amherst's BCT program. In addition to providing financial support for BCT's programs, the gift will make it possible for four students a year to receive scholarships.

The BCT program prepares students for careers in construction management, sustainable building systems, and building materials technology. BCT offers undergraduate and graduate degrees as well as continuing education programs. The program is located in the new John W. Olver Design Building, a distinctive architectural landmark and the largest, most technologically advanced academic contemporary wood structure in the United States.

“We are grateful for our partnership with the Associated General Contractors in supporting the building and construction technology program at UMass Amherst. We applaud the association's commitment to pursuing quality, excellence, and joint initiatives that improve and advance the industry,” said Alex Schreyer, director of the BCT program.
