The Construction Management team had an outstanding performance winning first place at the New Builders Competition held in February at the University of Cincinnati, sponsored by Fischer Homes.

The New Builders competition is geared for first and second-year construction management students. The competition places students in a developer’s shoes and focuses on residential construction. For the competition, students are given information about a new residential community and have less than a month to research and put together their estimating and scheduling proposal as if they were a construction company bidding for a job.

The teams benefit from one student coach, usually an upper-class man that has more experience and faculty coaches to guide them in preparing their proposal.

Faculty advisors: Cynthia Hunter; Mohsen Goodarzi
Student coach: Kevin Zabala
Team members: Elise Jones, Will Mowat, David Shellabarger, Ethan Lee, Sam Thayer
