The Roofing Alliance, celebrating 25 years as the foundation of NRCA, has announced it will host four finalist teams to compete in the final part of its seventh annual Construction Management Student Competition. The oral presentations will take place virtually April 8; you can view the video presentations starting April 12 on the Roofing Alliance YouTube channel.
The four teams that will present are 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 Las Vegas Raiders’ practice facility, part of the new Intermountain Healthcare Performance Center in Henderson, Nev. 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 a virtual awards presentation April 16 at 3 p.m. EST. Following are instructions for joining the April 16 Zoom event:
