WSU Student Team Wins Third in National Construction Management Competition

A Washington State University student team took third place in the recent Associated Schools of Construction competition.

This is the largest construction management competition in the U.S. with more than 1700 students from 55 universities and 22 states participating in Reno, Nevada.

The competition requires students to solve complex problems in less than 24 hours, present proposals, and participate in a question and answer session in a business setting.

A WSU team coached by professor Jason Peschel and sponsored by Howard S. Wright Construction, placed in the commercial category.

As part of the competition, the students used construction management skills to develop a proposal for a real-life construction problem .

This year’s competition was close, with a scoring difference between first and third place of only one out of 200 total points.
