The Texas A&M construction science team placed fourth among the 45 teams participating in the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) Residential Construction Competition held Feb. 7 – 9 at the International Builders Show in Orlando, Fla.
The competition involved putting together a feasibility plan to develop a residential condominium project, consisting of 102 condominiums, in Fairfax, Va. The student teams’ written proposal included a cost estimate, finance and management plan, construction schedule, market analysis and a marketing strategy. The teams presented their projects during the builders show.
Also at the competition, the Texas A&M NAHB Student Chapter placed second nationally in the Student Chapter of the Year competition. The competition is based on the past year’s activities, where each chapter from a national university submits a compilation for review.
