Celebrating a 12-year partnership with CIWI

Cahill was a founding partner of the Construction Industry Workshop Initiative (CIWI) in 2011.  Over the past 12 years, Cahill has hosted 30 CIWI summer interns and is proud to have seen CIWI grow to provide over 100 internships in real estate, architecture, and construction to disadvantaged college students in the Bay Area. 

Bart Fockler, Superintendent, has been with Cahill for 16 years. After leaving his previous career, he decided to take full advantage of the booming construction industry in San Francisco by doing what he loves – building. Bart says, “the CityBuild program was eye-opening because I had no idea the extent of union trades or even their specific specialties. Through the CityBuild program, I learned of their functions and experienced the testing requirements for entry; furthermore, I learned what it took to be successful!” During his program he was able to meet a superintendent working on the California Academy of Sciences, who explained the complexity of the project, the synchronization of the trades, and the general day-to-day problem solving he and his team dealt with. Understanding the complexities of the project sparked Bart’s enthusiasm for construction and lead him to becoming a carpenter. Years later, he is mentoring others on jobsites that he is leading and passing his passion to the next generation of builders.

Cahill is committed to our employees, clients, and the communities in which we live, work, and build.
