Our members are “Hard at Work” building safe roads and bridges, modern schools and hospitals, and water and sewer infrastructure that increases the quality of life for all West Virginians. The CAWV is the state’s only full service organization dedicated to meeting the needs of the construction industry in West Virginia. The CAWV is one of the most respected trade organizations in the state, and for more than 75 years has been a traditional leader of the business community in advancing legislative and public policy issues. We are “Hard at Work” building a better West Virginia.


Featured News from the CAWV





The CAWV commissioned a report by the American Road and Transportation Builders Association that examines the economic impact of a $500 million annual increase in West Virginia highway and bridge maintenance.  The results show that the construction activity would increase market output, grow the tax base and support nearly 10,000 jobs across all major sectors of the state economy.  To view the report titled “The Economic Impact of an Annual $500 Million Increase in Highway and Bridge Construction Investment in West Virginia,” click here.






The annual CAWV Scholarship Golf Outing will be held on Friday, June 5, at Berry Hills Country Club.  Over 300 CAWV members and guests played in last year’s event, which sold out very early.

For the afternoon golfers, an awards dinner will be held immediately after play. All proceeds from the Golf Outing benefit the CAWV Scholarship Foundation. To help insure your preferred starting time, get your reservation form, check and a list of your team in as early as possible.
