Allhands Essay Contest winner

Top construction student
wins wordsmith competition



Natalie Franz, the Department of Construction Science’s 2006 Outstanding Graduate, won the 2006 Allhands Essay Contest sponsored by Associated General Contractors of America. Her winning essay explored the evolution of design documents for a construction project. The award includes a $1,000 cash prize and an all-expense-paid trip to the AGC national meeting in March.

Franz is currently working as an estimator in the Fort Worth headquarters of History Maker Homes, a fast growing, privately owned family business that builds affordable homes in the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex.

James L. Allhands, a founding member of the Associated General Contractors of America, was a prolific writer of construction-related books who wanted his work continued by today’s students.
