Construction Management

The Construction Management Division  oversees the construction, renovation and major maintenance of state-owned buildings and community colleges. The division also reviews and evaluates the acquisition and sale of property for state agencies. 

Prior to 2016, Construction Management (CM) functioned as a division of the Wyoming Department of Administration and Information (A&I).

With the passage of Enrolled Act No. 59 in 2016, Construction Management was removed from the A&I umbrella and merged with School Facilities, thereby creating the Wyoming State Construction Department.

The Construction Management Division reports directly to the State Building Commission (SBC) who is comprised of the state's five elected officials: the governor, who chairs the Commission, the secretary of state, the state auditor, the state treasurer, and the superintendent of public instruction. The Division Administrator for Construction Management, Suzanne Norton, also serves as the secretary of the SBC.

New Student Center at NWC 

In early May, Northwest College broke ground on their new Student Center. Being built in place of the 80-year-old DeWitt Student Center, which required some abatement of hazardous materials, the new facility will offer much more for NWC students. In addition to more comfortable seating areas and better dining options, the new Student Center will also house the NWC’s nationally competing Trapper E-Sports Team, a Rec Co-op area with a two story climbing wall, Student Activities and Information Desk, hi-tech break-out study areas, and administration offices. Construction is being managed by Groathouse Construction of Cody, WY and over 83% of the work is being done by Wyoming Contractors with 70% being from the local Big Horn Basin Contractors helping Wyoming money to stay in Wyoming. The project is well on its way to stay under budget and on-time because of an amazing level of collaboration between NWC, SCD, Groathouse, and the architect HCM during one of the most unpredictable market fluctuations in modern history. Scheduled to open early Fall, 2024, the Student Center is sure to be the center of campus life. 

A New Beginning in Mental Health Care 

Wyoming's new beginning in mental health started April 26, 2018, with a multi-million dollar initiative to modernize both the Wyoming State Hospital in Evanston and the Wyoming Life Resource Center (WLRC) in Lander.

Pictured here are the newest facilities at the WLRC in Lander which serves the state as an Intermediate Care Facility for people with disabilities, and the Wyoming State Hospital in Evanston , Wyoming's only only state-operated psychiatric hospital. These updates to the facilities will help ensure that the Wyoming Department of Health can deliver quality, modern care for Wyoming citizens.

In Honor of Wyoming's Heroes 

Realizing a potential need, in 2018 the Wyoming Legislature authorized the construction of a skilled nursing center especially for veterans. Construction began in 2020 and will complete in late 2022.  This skilled nursing center for veterans is the first of its kind in Wyoming. 

Centralizing in Casper

In an effort to consolidate office space used by various state agencies  a new centralized building is under construction in Casper. 

The new complex will put all state agencies operating in Casper under one roof, ending the need to rent various offices around the city. Nearly 400 state employees will be housed in the building. 

Due to the project affecting so many different state agencies, a special task force was established to provide guidance and expertise during construction.
