Missouri construction companies and Missouri S&T will combine their expertise to spur innovation in the construction industry. The Missouri Consortium for Construction Innovation (MoCCI) was established Jan. 30 with a celebration at the headquarters of a charter member, Brinkmann Constructors in Chesterfield, Missouri.

Dr. Islam El-adaway, the Hurst/McCarthy Professor at Missouri S&T serves as founding director of the consortium. MoCCI comprises various construction-associated members such as contractors, owners, subcontractors, vendors and service providers. Brinkmann is one of the initial MoCCI members, along with McCarthy Building Companies, Arco Construction, Clayco, BJC HealthCare and the Greensfelder law firm. All have operations in St. Louis. Consortium leaders expect other companies to join in the near future.
