Boise State Construction Management teams score huge success at 2021 ASC Regional and National Competition
The Boise State University Construction Management department had 35 students that competed in a virtual version of the Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) Student Competition held Feb 3-6, 2021. In the Rocky Mountain Region 6 categories, the Boise State CM’s Commercial team was awarded 1st place, Design Build team was awarded 2nd place and Mixed Use team was awarded 2nd place. In the National categories, Boise State CM’s Concrete Solutions team was awarded 1st place.
During the competition, teams met virtually with industry problem sponsors and were presented with problem statements and accompanying plans and specifications. They had about 18 hours to develop and prepare solutions including a detailed estimate, project schedule, staffing, safety, and sustainability plans. Each team’s experience, approach to pre-construction and construction phases of the project and ability to respond to deliverables are critical in the grading process.
The teams also make a formal presentation of their solution to the professional constructors who worked on the actual projects. Awards are given to teams that exhibit the most comprehensive approach to all aspects of the project.
This year more than 1,098 students competed on 152 teams from 47 universities and 18 states.
