Electrical Construction Management (ECLM) CONCENTRATION
Download a copy of the ECLM contract.
The goal of the Electrical Construction Management (ECLM) concentration program is to provide a higher level of education for those Building Construction Management (BCM) students who are interested in the field of Electrical Construction. Specific electrical coursework in the areas of estimating, scheduling, project management, and design will provide the student with the necessary skills required for entry-level positions in the electrical construction industry.
Upon completion of the following plan of study, and in conjunction with the core requirements of the BCM program, the student will receive the "Electrical Construction Management" designation on their transcript. Students who choose to pursue the ECLM will complete the core required course of BCM 216 Electrical Construction (2 cr.), and complete an additional nine (9) credit hours of courses which are specific to the electrical construction industry.

Plan of Study
- BCM 316 Electrical Construction Estimating (3 credit hours)
- BCM 417 Design/Build for MEP Contractors (3 credit hours)
- Electrical Concentration Selective – Pick one of the following:
- BCM 317, BCM 419/581, CGT 360, CGT 460, BCM 430
Total: 11 Credit Hours
Required ECLM Courses
BCM 316 - Electrical Construction Estimating
(Class 2, Lab 2, Cr. 3. Prerequisite: BCM 21600 or BCM 21601.)
Costs dictated by the contract documents for the electrical systems in residential, commercial, industrial, specialty, and line construction projects are studied. The course will utilize computer estimating systems.
BCM 417 - Design/Build for MEP Contractors
(Class 2, Lab 2, Cr. 3. Prerequisite: BCM 21500, BCM 21600 or BCM 21601, and BCM 34500. )
The student will study, develop, and analyze conceptual design and conceptual estimating of mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, and specialty systems in construction. The principles of design/build construction will be applied to case studies of actual residential, commercial, industrial, and specialty construction projects. Topics include building systems, criteria and selection, economic feasibility, value engineering, customer control, and value-added construction services.
