How we're Built
At the State Construction Department (SCD), we work hard to provide a diverse range of knowledge and expertise in the planning, design, construction, and preservation of state buildings, community colleges, and K-12 educational facilities throughout Wyoming. We achieve this through a daily commitment to our principles: effective communication, respectful collaboration, excellence in service, continued education and training, and transparency in our work.
Established in 2016 by the Enrolled Act No. 59 of the 63rd Wyoming Legislature, the SCD is a combination of the once separate Construction Management and School Facilities divisions to better leverage their expertise. The SCD is directed by Delbert McOmie, as appointed by the Governor of Wyoming.
A state employee for over 36 years years, Del has served as chief engineer for the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT), interim director of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services (DWS), and most recently, director of Wyoming School Facilities.
Del brings nearly four decades of engineering and management experience to his role at SCD. He is a past officer of the Western Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (WASHTO) and served on the Standing Committee of Highways for the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), where he played a key role in developing best practices for work zone safety.
An outdoors enthusiast, hunting and fishing are two of Del's most favored pastimes.
