West Virginia Construction News is the official magazine of The Contractors Association of West Virginia and has been "The Voice of Construction in the Mountain State" for 80 years.

 

Our bi-monthly publication reaches a pass-along readership of more than 3,000.   The readership consists of building, heavy, highway and utility contractors; engineers and architects; legislators; federal, state and local government employees; suppliers of goods and services to the construction industry; and others directly or indirectly associated with the construction industry.
 
Each issue contains current local and state construction issues and features on CAWV members and also member activities. The association is always looking for projects to feature and examples of members using the “Hard at Work” logo.  
 
Advertising opportunities are available for members and non members.

 

For more information on the magazine, contact Cassidy Webb at (304) 342-1166 or cwebb@cawv.org.
