A Tribute to Our Founder Edward J. Malloy was instrumental in changing the face of the construction industry. Together with industry leaders, he founded Construction Skills 2000 which has grown into the successful program that it is today. In honor of the commitment to excellence that Mr. Malloy brought to the initiative, Construction Skills 2000 was renamed The Edward J. Malloy Initiative for Construction Skills, Inc.
