CM Cares State of CM Cares in COVID-19
We have three CM Cares projects that began in January 2020 and are currently paused during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are committed to finishing our CM Cares projects once it’s appropriate for the community to come together and build.
CM Cares Service Learning
CM Cares 2020 Angoli Project
Contributors: Milender White Construction, Merit Electric, Murphy, Construction Management Student Board of Directors
The Angoli Project will include re-configuring and upgrading an existing bathroom with new finishes. New accessible shower space will be installed, and the door opening made wider to allow more space for care.
CM Cares 2020 Brigden Project
Contributors: FCI, US Engineering, Construction Management Student Board of Directors
The Brigden project will include remodeling an existing bathroom and adding a small addition for a walk-in closet. We will demo the existing restroom to widen the bathroom door and make an accessible walk-in shower.
CM Cares 2020 Elke Project
Contributors: Swinerton, Merit Electric, RK Mechanical, Construction Management Student Board of Directors
The Elke project involves re-configuring an existing bathroom to turn into a powder room, remodeling Elke’s existing closet to be a walk-in shower space, and framing in a small nurse’s station.
CM Cares Application
Currently not accepting CM Cares Applications. The application process will re-open spring 2021.
The CM Cares project application is open from the end of May through August. Applications will be reviewed in the upcoming fall by the CM Cares committee which may include a site visit to the project. Selected projects will begin the design phase in the fall with construction beginning in the spring.
Priority is given to projects that serve children and individuals in need of accessibility modifications as well as nonprofit organizations that serve the greater community. Consideration is only given to those who do not have resources or funding to complete the project otherwise.
In most cases project applications must be able to answer yes to the following questions.
- Do you/organization completing this application own the property for the project requested?
- Have you exhausted all means and cannot find construction related assistance anywhere else?
- Are you available to collaborate with student teams during the entire 16 week semester beginning in January through May?
- Is the project located in Larimer County or within 15 miles of the Colorado State University, Fort Collins campus?
