The division encourages all Montana contractors to participate in the bidding process and awards projects following state procurement regulations. Montana Western Chancellor Richard Storey said, “We very much appreciate the great work and dedication of the A&E staff. Their assistance and support of the Main Hall project and Montana Western is significant.” A&E will serve as project manager during construction at the Dillon, Mont. campus.
