Construction Management Competition

ABC's Construction Management Competition (CMC) is a hallmark competition that promotes careers in construction management.  The competition is sponsored in part by the Trimmer Construction Education Foundation (TCEF) and ABC members. In addition to providing a significant learning opportunity, the competition fosters an environment that will bring out the best in each team; encourage dialogue among the students; and foster the team spirit as students rise to meet this challenge. The CMC is designed to challenge construction knowledge, time management, organizational, and presentation skills. The competition features teams of four (4) college and university students testing their project management, estimating, safety, quality control, and presentation skills.  Come prepared to have fun, challenge other students, and demonstrate your ability to think on your feet.

ELIGIBILITY


All teams must be from an ABC Student Chapter in good standing.  If you are not an ABC Student Chapter and would like to compete, please contact Kirsten Krauer at 202-595-1864 or krauer@abc.org.

Each team member and alternates must be active undergraduate members of their chapter and actively enrolled in their college or university at the time of the CMC.
