The Roofing Alliance will host five finalist teams to compete in the final part of its eighth annual Construction Management Student Competition. The oral presentations will take place Feb. 2 at the 2022 International Roofing Expo® in New Orleans.
The five teams that will present are California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, Calif.; Clemson University, Clemson, S.C.; Colorado State University, Fort Collins; Texas A&M University, College Station; and University of Florida, Gainesville.
This year, the teams were tasked with submitting a qualified bid package for a new roof system on the Four Points Sheraton Hotel located on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Each team was required to research the project, review the plans and specifications, and assemble a full estimate and proposal to submit a qualified bid package. All teams must strive to find a competitive edge in their estimates to beat their competition while still maintaining a reasonable margin.
The winning teams will be announced during NRCA’s Industry Awards Ceremony and Reception Feb. 2 at the 2022 IRE in New Orleans.
The first-place team will receive a team trophy, a $5,000 L.B. Conway scholarship for their school and individual awards. The second-place team will receive a team trophy, a $2,500 Fred Good scholarship for their school and individual awards. The first-place Best Individual Student Presenter will be selected from the finalist teams and will receive a $300 gift card, and the second-place Best Individual Student Presenter will receive a $200 gift card.
All winners will receive recognition in Professional Roofing magazine, among other promotions.
