Competition Overview

The ABC Construction Management Competition provides competing teams an opportunity to experience an actual project that exhibits unique characteristics and issues. Participating teams assembled a general contracting firm that represented their school and ABC Student Chapter in the competition. 

The 2019 competition focused on the selection of a general contractor for a project based on price and technical proposal. The selection was facilitated in three Steps.

Step One – Price and Technical Proposal consisted of pre- competition work that provided the team’s estimated project cost and demonstrates their overall experience and capability in constructing the project.

Step Two – Competition Day consisted of a spontaneous exercise led by the CM Competition Committee.

Step Three – Interviews consisted of face-to-face discussions between the team’s leadership and the
Competition Judges.
