Bartlett Cocke General Contractors is proud of our long-standing commitment to supporting the communities in which we live and work.

As such, our team at the Palo Alto Community College (PAC) – Multi-Purpose Building (MPB) led by Matthew Bragg (Project Executive), Michael MacKenzie (Project Manager), Nathan Tondre (Superintendent), Tyler Ritchie (Assistant Superintendent), and Adam Watts (Assistant Project Manager), hosted a project site visit for construction students enrolled in Dr. Tulio Sulbaran’s Project Management class at the University of Texas San at Antonio (UTSA).


Matthew Bragg provided a project overview and Michael MacKenzie dived deeper into the day-to-day responsibilities of the project management team. Nathan Tondre provided a content-rich walk-through of the construction job site and explained in detail the proactive actions taken by the team to reduce the effects of the current worldwide material logistics bottleneck. Tyler Ritchie provided further insight by expounding on mitigation efforts employed to prevent water penetration. Scoot Swetnam, part of the UTSA Risk and Emergency Management, attended the project site visit and provided additional comments. Students were afforded the opportunity to ask any questions they may have had about the construction industry or our core values here at Bartlett Cocke General Contractors.

This project site visit showcased Bartlett Cocke General Contractors’ commitment to supporting those who educate our youth and aligns with UTSA’s  “Classroom to Careers” initiative. This academic initiative facilitates students understanding of the real-world applications of classroom learning activities.
