Cal Poly Construction Management Students Win
Top Honors at Regional Competition
SAN LUIS OBISPO – Cal Poly construction management students earned top honors at the recent Associated Schools of Construction Competition (ASC) in Reno, Nev. Seven Cal Poly teams placed, more than any other school in the competition. Cal Poly had 12 teams competing – also more than any other university.
A total of 169 teams from 41 universities competed in 17 different categories from two different ASC regions. Cal Poly students won first in the Concrete Solutions and Design Build categories; second in the Mixed Use and Determining Project Risk; and third in the Marine Construction, Mechanical and Electrical divisions.
“At the same time you see them competing so well against schools that specialize in residential construction, they are also winning in areas as diverse as Design-Build, Concrete, Marine Construction, and various specialty areas,” said Al Hauck, Construction Management Department head. “Every year they bring home a lot of trophies but in different areas each time. I don’t think there is any category at Reno in which we have not finished at or near the top in the past three years.”
