Colin Hindman has accepted a second summer internship with MCA of Indiana member, Harrell-Fish, Inc. Colin is a junior studying Construction Management Technology at Purdue University where he is the President of the MCAA Student Chapter. Colin says, “being a part of MCAA has both reinforced and built upon concepts I have learned in class, but most importantly on the job. My excellent experience working with HFI gave me a certain advantage when approaching the competition project. Conversely, the MCAA Student Chapter Competition taught me some valuable lessons that I’ve already been able to apply back in my internship.

Cohen Seglias’ Construction Contracts & Risk Management Group prepared sample notice letters for use on jobs where contractors and subcontractors are still ordered to work either in violation of shutdown orders or under unsafe work conditions that are contrary to the CDC guidelines. Also, with many companies still bidding and entering into contracts for new work, Cohen Seglias is providing sample force majeure language that covers pandemics such as this as an unforeseen event entitling you to an extension of time and an increase in price caused by any resultant delays.

This year’s MCAA Educator of the Year Award was presented to Cristina Cosma of the Wentworth Institute of Technology.

Cosma checks off all of these boxes and more.”
