Bartlett Cocke General Contractors Taps One of Houston’s Rising Stars in Construction to Serve as its New, East Texas Leader

(HOUSTON, TEXAS July 7, 2021) –– Angela Cotie, LEED AP BD&C, an accomplished and much sought-after leader in the local Houston construction industry, has been selected by Bartlett Cocke

General Contractors to lead the company’s East Texas Region office as its new Vice President of Operations.

Cotie joins the firm with a proven background in construction, having previously served in multiple roles including project executive, project manager, superintendent, scheduler and estimator.

Prior to joining Bartlett Cocke General Contractors, Cotie worked for the Gilbane Building Company as project executive, most recently on the high-profile new construction and renovation project at Bush Intercontinental Airport.

Throughout her career, Cotie has been extremely active in key industry organizations such as the Associated General Contractors, ACE Mentoring Program, the Houston ISD School District, and the Penn State AE Advisory Board, and as such has established a strong network of local Houston clients, architect and engineering partners, and subcontractors. 


AGC and Autodesk Launch Media Library to Boost Representation of Diversity in Construction  

On June 29, 2021, The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) and Autodesk launched the Construction Diversity Image Library, a collection of photographs for use by the media featuring diverse individuals in the construction workforce. The library will launch with an established collection of images and as part of the initiative, organizations from across the design, engineering and building industry are invited to contribute additional photographs.

In both 2019 and 2020, the annual workforce survey conducted by the AGC and Autodesk identified a steady and unfulfilled demand for more talent, with up to 80 percent of contractors reporting they are unable to find skilled workers. To fill the workforce gap and deliver on the growing call for more buildings, construction needs to attract and retain new talent.

 Keeping Safety Viral 

Now more than ever, as the state continues to re-open for business, it is imperative that we all adhere to the safety protocols that have been put in place. It is equally important that each of you continue spreading that message up and down the supply chain. As has been stated many times, COVID-19 is global, but personal. Each of us need to do our part to KEEP SAFETY VIRAL. For more information, please visit our COVID-19: Construction Industry Resources page.
