An interdisciplinary team of Cal Poly students earned second place at the 2018 National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) Residential Construction Management Competition held Jan. 8-10 in Orlando, Florida. The students, all members of the university’s NAHB student chapter, competed against 33 other university teams, including first-place winner Penn State University, Brigham Young University (third place), and the University of Denver (fourth place). The NAHB Student Competition, a highlight of the International Builders’ Show, charges students with completing a management project/proposal. This year, teams were asked to prepare a proposal to acquire (or decline to acquire) a 72-arce parcel in Okemus, Michigan. The Cal Poly team was led by construction management seniors and team captains Jeremy Suryadi and Jeffrey Hammond. They were joined by architecture students Alexander Gama and Tyler Hall; business finance students Tyler Ingel and Carter Jones; city and regional planning student Eric Martinez; and construction management students Abraham Ahmed, Sarah De Los Reyes, Thomas Fuentez, Trevor Nally and Jeffrey Phunmongkol. The team was advised by construction management faculty members Scott Kelting and Stacy Kolegraff.
