MSOE Preconstruction Team with competition judges

Two teams of students from MSOE’s Civil and Architectural Engineering and Construction Management Department competed at the Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) National Open Student Competition in Reno, Nevada in early February. MSOE was one of 12 universities from across the United States to compete at the event, and MSOE’s Preconstruction Team took second place. Brian Mueller, received the MVP Student Award from the judges who said his performance was the best among all participants.

The teams had to put together a professional proposal for a $60 million vehicle maintenance facility project located in Denver. After receiving problem statements and accompanying documents at 7 a.m., they had 18 hours to develop solutions, including means and methods, cost, schedule, safety and sustainability considerations. The proposal presentation was judged the next day by the professionals who had worked on the actual projects.

Members of the judging panel commented that MSOE is always one of the top schools in this competition, which was sponsored by PCL Construction. MSOE looks forward to welcoming PCL Construction to campus when they recruit talent. Congratulations to those students who were involved:

Preconstruction Team
Deanna Engelmeyer, Max Morache, Constantine Moshi, Brian Mueller, Trevor Symbal and Michelle VanBuskirk (captain). They were coached by Dr. Jeong Woo, associate professor and construction management program director.

Electrical Construction Team
Owen Burnikel, Becky Guzman, Travis Smith, Ben Mahrer, Alex Phillips and Joey Trevis. They were coached by Christine Brotz, instructor.
