Leading the Way

Now in its 15th year, award-winning Colorado Construction & Design® (CCD) is Colorado’s leading construction news and marketing magazine. CCD conducted reader research upon launching the magazine and readers told us what they most wanted to see. With that, we have created and delivered the kind of news AEC professionals can use in a timely, organized manner.

CCD is the official publisher for AGC Colorado and Media Partner with numerous trade organizations including AIA Colorado, HCC, CRMCA, IECRM, PCI Mountain States, CAMPC, RMMI, AISC, RMSCA, SMACNA, ULI, USGBC, SMPS Colorado and others. CCD serves as an information sharing resource for architects, engineers and general contractors, and subcontractors (the AEC and MEP industry) in Colorado.

CCD is direct mailed every six weeks to major AEC Colorado industry decision makers including real estate developers, business owners and government officials including those at the municipal, county, state and federal levels. CCD is also mailed to school districts, economic development agencies, chambers of commerce, Mayoral offices, the Governor and leading AEC Colorado industry association members and executives. In other words, we reach those individuals who are most likely to contract for construction and design services.

Amy Powell

Amy Powell is the current owner and founder of Well Works, which designs, builds, and conducts leadership mindset training for those within the construction industry. With over 18 years of construction experience, the majority of it as a Project Manager for a Commercial GC, she noticed the lack of training and information focused on the "boots on the ground" leadership to best lead our diverse construction teams. Tired of looking for the "right tools for the job," she decided to roll up her sleeves, collect her MEd in Adult Education, and build these tools herself to equip fellow industry members with "leadership mindsets" to help in their current or future roles.
