DBIA is proud to announce the three finalists in its 2017 National Design-Build Student Competition. Student teams from the Milwaukee School of Engineering, University of Oklahoma and Washington State University will advance to the final round of the competition.
The three student finalist teams will compete in front of a live jury and audience at DBIA’s upcoming Design-Build Conference & Expo on November 9 in Philadelphia. The teams will present before a panel of interviewers – mirroring the second phase of a true design-build competition – to answer questions and defend their design and construction plans for a student health and wellness facility on a liberal arts college campus.
The competition began at the regional level with 29 teams of students from 26 universities from across the country competing. Nine regional winners were selected to compete in the second phase of the competition based on their response to the initial RFQ. An RFP was then issued to those nine and the top three finalists were selected based on their responses.
