Expertise: Construction management with a focus on preconstruction and design phase processes
After 30 years in the construction industry, Barry Kutz decided to retire and give back “to the program that prepared me for a successful career.”
Now he’ll be teaching in ASU’s construction program, from which he earned a bachelor’s degree in the 1980s. During his career, Kutz led a preconstruction team for McCarthy Building Companies, a major national construction company, during a long period of record-breaking growth.
In the courses he will teach or co-teach, Kutz says students will find a learning environment “where there is room for a lot of practical questions” about an industry he finds to be “exciting” and that “keeps me interested and active.”
His interests and activities away from work revolve around spending quality time with his family.
