SIUE Engineering Students Runner-up at National Competition

November 1, 2014

SIUE School of Engineering students traveled to Downer’s Grove in mid-October to participate in the annual Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) Region 3 Student Competition. The SIUE Preconstruction Team placed second out of 11 teams. Team members included: Zach Carlson, Zach Coon, George Justice, Chad Kolmer, Mason Musick and Chrissy Rafferty.

The objective of the competition was to expose student competitors to realistic construction contract acquisition tasks. Contestants performed tasks necessary to develop several different preconstruction proposals, including an executive summary, organizational chart, project schedule, logistics plan, budget and safety analysis. After developing the various construction plans, teams orally presented their proposals to a panel of judges and interviewed with their respective companies.

Teams ranged from California Polytechnic State University to Ohio State and many in between. The University of Southern California (USC) won the event.
