DESIGN-BUILD/CONSTRUCTION The Design-Build/Construction Competition allows students to gain experience and insight in two aspects of the Civil Engineering community: Design-Build and Construction Manage- ment. Students will learn about how firms go about designing and proposing a project bid, as well as going out to the field to manage and construct their project, all in a friendly competi- tive environment. Teams are expected to act as a design-build construction firm: preparing a project bid, competing with other companies (universities) for a contract, and then executing their plan of a feature that improves the student experience at the host campus. Teams will be required to complete their initial design and bid, and then plan, construct, and present their plan and the new feature. It is the goal of this competition to provide unique insight and hands-on experience for the next generation of design and construction engineers.
