The Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) sponsors regional competitions each year to provide university students with an opportunity to work as a team to tackle a real construction management and engineering problem and to deal with issues as part of submitting a proposal and giving a presentation. Some of the specialized tasks include quantity take-off, cost estimating, value engineering, risk mitigation, and problem-solving. The team will prepare a request for qualification (RFQ), request for proposal (RFP), and give a presentation on the proposal on a mixed-use project. The mixed-use project is an actual construction project that is a multi-use development with public amenity spaces and retail stores. The team is assisted in the competition preparation by an industry coach. This project requires skills and planning related to construction management, construction engineering, and other engineering disciplines to complete the estimate. This project is part of the ASC regional competition.
