SUNY Delhi Ranks among Top Associated Schools of Construction in Northeast Region Competition
DELHI, NY (12/13/2014)(readMedia)-- SUNY Delhi ranked in the top three construction management colleges and universities in the Northeast at the 25th Annual Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) Region 1 student competition in Morristown, N.J. November 14-15.
SUNY Delhi placed third in the design-build category, competing against 11 teams. The ASC Region 1 student competition was conducted in three categories- design-build, commercial, and heavy civil.
"This marks the third consecutive time Delhi students have placed in the design-build category," said Jared Yando, assistant professor of construction technology and management at SUNY Delhi. "In my experience with the competition, this is a rare achievement."
Other colleges and universities who participated in the regional competition included Rochester Institute of Technology, Roger Williams University, Clarkson University, Central Connecticut University, NYU Poly, Wentworth University, Norwich University, SUNY ESF, Alfred State and Pennsylvania College of Technology.
The competition process allows students the opportunity to apply what they have learned to a real-world situation by participating in design and estimating and proposal simulations. They interpret bid documents, plan means and methods, perform quantity measurements, apply unit and labor pricing, analyze subcontractor quotes, create schedules and submit proposals. Teams are evaluated by industry judges on the quality of their proposals and oral presentations.
