Construction Community

Construction COI

Community Mission

The Construction Community of Interest enables SAME to improve construction delivery of federal projects. We focus on keeping projects on budget, on schedule, and of the highest quality with a goal of reversing current trends. We openly represent interests of both the government and contractor.  Through that collaborative mindset we foster opportunities for reform and partnership ultimately to ensure the infrastructure security of our nation. 

Membership in the Construction COI is open to all members of SAME.
