This past week, Cal Poly CM students Kelly Williams and Carlye Cunningham took part in the ASC Region 8 International Construction competition, placing 2nd out of 11 teams from 11 different Universities and 4 different countries. The two were a part of a joint team with two students from the Czech Technical University in Prague.
The competition took place in Liverpool, England at Liverpool John Moores University. The first day of the competition, the team worked for 7 hours on a problem statement for a 6 story hotel tenant improvement project. The next day, the team presented their project in front of a panel of judges. Next the judges deliberated and called back the top 4 teams for 20 minutes of question and answer about the project. After this round, the judges made their decisions and the Cal Poly team was very proud to hear the results.
The competition was different than any other ASC competition, connecting construction students from all over the world and challenging them to adapt to the differences between European and American construction.
