Let’s work together to build a brighter future.

Colorado Construction Institute (CCI) and the Home Builders Association of Metro Denver (HBA) have partnered to deliver Building Pathways, an innovative education and job training opportunity bringing construction career exploration and preparation onto high school campuses across the Denver Metro Area. The program uses the construction industry as a baseline for skills development applicable to countless professions – from tradesman, to office manager, to architect and so much more.


Building Pathways centers upon an innovative, emerging trend in secondary education – Project-Based Learning (PBL). Students in BP 101 identify, design, plan, build and evaluate construction projects that meet a local community need. Because PBL replicates the type of work necessary for success in college and in any professional career, all students gain valuable experience for life after high school.
