2006 Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) / QUOIN Student Competitions, Region V, Dallas, TX (February 2006) -- 1st Place Team
OSU team members Luke Klein and Matt Allen placed in a three-way tie for Second Best Presenter

2006 Associated Schools of Construction 2006 National Competitions, Dallas TX (April 2006) -- 3rd Place Team

Austin Bridge & Road was the sponsor for the heavy/highway project, which was the construction of an overpass in the DFW area. The heavy/highway competition differs from the other two ASC/AGC student competitions in that all work solving the problem is to be simultaneously performed at one location by all teams. This meant that the H/C team traveled to Dallas on Saturday afternoon and started their 16-hour problem solving session at 6:00 am the next morning, with a bid letting held at 10:30 pm that evening. The competition is based upon the team's ability to determine means and methods, interpretation and understanding of unit price specifications, determine equipment spread, develop crew sizing and production rates, develop durations, develop unit costs, distribute general requirement costs, and produce a final unit price for several line items in the unit price bid, along with a total bid price for all items after extensions. Other items required included preparation of the schedule, preparation of the bid envelope and bid form, answers to questions concerning specifications, and take-off and pricing procedures. On Monday, the team made their presentation to the judges, as if the judges were higher management, as an internal bid review.

Teams from Texas Tech University, University of Arkansas-Little Rock, University of Louisiana at Monroe, Texas A & M University, Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma participated in the competition.

OSU team members Luke Klein and Matt Allen placed in a three-way tie for Second Best Presenter. OSU was the first place winner over Texas A & M with OU placing third. By winning first place, OSU was given the opportunity to represent Region V of the Associated Schools of Construction at the National Student Competition held in Dallas on April 7-10, 2006. The team placed 3rd in the National competition.

Sole support for the Heavy/Highway Competition Team was provided by the Association of Oklahoma Contractors. Without their support, fielding a team would not have been possible.

2006 National Association of Home Builders Student Competition, Orlando, FL (January 2006) -- Outstanding Construction Student at OSU-CMT, Kyle Turner

OSU Construction Management Students participated in the International Home Builders Show sponsored by the National Association of Home Builders in January 2006. The NAHB Residential Construction Competition is one of the highlights at the annual International Builders' Show. It gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to solve construction-related problems. This year students worked on a management proposal for a real Centex Homes Condo project by completing an estimate, schedule, cash flow forecast and other essential elements. The proposal was then submitted to a group of construction company executives who were the judges. Students experienced a true-to-life residential building business environment and gained valuable insight to their future careers. OSU placed in the top 10% of teams from across the nation in the oral presentation category. The students did so well that they were immediately besieged by homebuilders asking for resumes and interviews! Even though we did not bring home a trophy this year, our returning students are busy recruiting and preparing for next year's competition.

Zachry Construction was the sponsor for the heavy/civil project, which was construction of an underpass for US 75 at Churchill Way in Dallas County, TX. The heavy/civil competition differs from the other two ASC/AGC student competitions in that all work solving the problem is done at one location for all teams. This meant that the H/C team traveled to Dallas on Saturday afternoon and started their 16-hour problem solving session at 6:00 am the next morning, with a bid letting held at 10:30 pm that evening. The competition is based upon the team's ability to determine means and methods, interpretation and understanding of unit price specifications, determine equipment spread, develop crew sizes and production rates, develop durations, develop unit costs, distribute general requirement costs, and produce a final unit price for several line items in the unit price bid, along with a total bid price for all items after extensions.

Other required items included preparation of the schedule, preparation of the bid envelope and bid form, answers to questions concerning specifications, and take-off and pricing procedures. On Monday, the team made their presentation to the judges, as if the judges were higher management, as an internal bid review. Teams from Louisiana Tech University, Texas Tech University, University of Louisiana at Monroe, Texas A&M, and the University of Oklahoma participated in the competition. Jess Coonrod was named Best Presenter for the Heavy/Civil Competition. OSU was the first place winner edging Texas A&M, and third place went to Louisiana Tech. By winning first place, OSU will represent Region V of the Associated Schools of Construction at the National Student Competition held in Las Vegas (in conjunction with the AGC National Convention) March 13 – 16, 2005.

This year's problem for the CM Team consisted of preparing a competitive CM At Risk Proposal to construct a new Health Science Center for University of North Texas in Fort Worth, TX. The six-member student team was given 16-hours to solve the problem which included assembling a project management team, preparing a budget and a proposed schedule, and formulating various value engineering proposals.

The team began at 8:00 am on Saturday, and the $22 million proposal was written, assembled and transmitted electronically to the owner before midnight. The following day, the team printed the submittal copies of the proposal, created and refined its oral presentation and traveled to Dallas; the presentations were held on Monday at the offices of QUOIN Chapter, AGC. Awards were presented at the competition banquet, held at the Gaylord Hotel, and the CM team placed 2nd to Texas A&M University and ahead of the University of Oklahoma. Other teams represented John Brown University, Texas Tech University, the University of Louisiana at Monroe and Oklahoma State University – Okmulgee. Steve Rupert was honored as 2nd Best Presenter in the CM Competition, which was sponsored by Austin Commercial of Dallas.

Bob Moore Construction Company of Dallas sponsored the Student Design / Build Competition this year. As in previous years, the problem was sent to each participating school and the problem was solved at the school during a 16-hour period on Saturday including preliminary design, estimating, scheduling, project organization, and proposal preparation. On Sunday the team traveled to Dallas, and all schools made their presentations on Monday. The project this year was a one-story office in Arlington, Texas. The team faced the challenge of designing and building a new structure to house a board of realtors along with some shell space for future tenants. Safety issues were of prime importance, as the site was adjacent to a church and a highway. Team members were Drew Parli and David Brown from OSU School of Architecture who shouldered the design responsibility. CMT's Ryan Stafford, Zac McGrath, Angela Suarez, and Dexter Opela provided the estimating, scheduling, project management, and project organization for the problem. The team was coached by Mark Pruitt, his 10th year as a competition team coach. Texas A&M University, Texas Tech University, and University of Oklahoma provided competition. OSU placed 2nd behind TAMU once again coming in ahead of OU. Drew Parli placed 3rd in the individual presenter competition.

In a 16-hour period beginning at 8:00 am on Sunday, February 8, the HH Team of six CMT students prepared a detailed bid proposal for a small highway project outside of Austin, Texas, near the Toyota Plant. The project consisted of two intersections and about one mile of highway. The highway was being widened to accommodate the heavy traffic in the area.

Required in the proposal were a detailed proposal, cost analysis, methods and procedures of construction, and the project schedule and phasing. The team was also required to address specific contract requirements and issues concerning public works projects, traffic control and lane closures, and crew sizes and productivity rates.

Placed 1st at Regionals

Bob Moore Construction sponsored the Student Design / Build Regional Competition this year. The project this year was a building for a development company located in Fort Worth, Texas. The storm water pollution prevention plan to protect an endangered fish was an issue. The other universities competing were Texas A&M University, Texas Tech, University of Louisiana at Monroe, and University of Oklahoma. OSU placed 1st in front of A&M and OU. The AGC of Oklahoma provided funding for travel expenses for the D/B team also, and this donation allowed us to compete in this category of competition.

Mortenson sponsored the Student Design / Build National Competition this year. At nationals the problem was given to each participating school and the problem was solved in a hotel room during a 16-hour period on Thursday including preliminary design, estimating, scheduling, project organization, and proposal preparation. All schools made their presentations on Friday. The project this year was a minor league baseball stadium located in Tucson, Arizona. The team faced the challenge of designing and building a new structure on an abandoned golf course in an older middle class neighborhood. A detailed explanation of the design and construction process was of prime importance. Also keeping from disrupting the neighborhood was an issue. The other universities competing were Brigham Young University, University of Washington, Roger Williams University, University of Florida, North Dakota State University, and Milwaukee School of Engineering. OSU did not place in the top three positions. The AGC of Oklahoma provided funding for travel expenses for the D/B team and this donation allowed us to compete in this category of competition.

Placed 1st at Regionals

This year's regional problem for the CM team consisted of preparing a competitive proposal to construct the Mabel Peters Caruth Office Center in Dallas, Texas. It was a CM at Risk proposal, and the six member student CM team had 16 hours to prepare a budget, proposed schedule, project management team, and value engineering proposals. The $16 million project proposal was to be written, assembled, and transmitted to the owner represented by Austin Commercial within the 16-hour time frame. The day following the 16-hour problem solving session, the team created and refined their presentation and traveled to Dallas. Presentations were made against teams from John Brown University, Oklahoma State University - Okmulgee, Texas A&M University, Texas Tech University, University of Louisiana at Monroe, and the University of Oklahoma. Charles Rich coached team members Scotty Brice, Brandon Bull, Greg Burns, Lisa Rich, Jeremy Spooner, and Tony Yanda. The team presented the problem in an excellent fashion and swept the best presenter awards with Brandon Bull receiving best presenter, Jeremy Spooner second best presenter, and Tony Yanda third best presenter. The team also placed first in the Region V competition and traveled to Orlando, FL to represent OSU at the national ASC/AGC competition.

The national competition was an excellent learning experience for the team and all did an outstanding job putting together proposals, estimates, schedules, and their oral presentation for a $24 million hospital renovation in Allentown, PA. Turner Construction Group presented a challenging project that required our team to use all of their expertise. All those at the competition were impressed with the work done by the Oklahoma State team, however the team came up just short of bring home some winning hardware. Better luck next year!

The AGC of Oklahoma provided funding for travel expenses for which we are especially grateful.

Placed 10th Nationally

OSU sent their second homebuilders competition team to Las Vegas in January 2004. The competition took place during the week of the International Builders Show. The students submitted their applications, raised money for travel and expenses, researched the problem and requirements, and performed superbly. The NAHB competition consisted of a pre-designed residential development for which the students had to prepare an estimate, a schedule, value engineering proposals, management plan, construction site plan, marketing plan, and cash flow analysis. The development for this year's competition, which was sponsored by Centex Homes, was a 150-plus home development located in the Twin-Cities suburb of Blair, Minnesota. The problem was given to each team in early November with the written proposal being due on January 6, 2004. This required team members to give up part or all of their Christmas vacations in order to complete the problem and write the proposal. In the period between January 6 and January 19, the team prepared their oral presentation that was presented to the judges on January 20, 2004 in Las Vegas at the Convention Center.

The team placed 10th out of 24 teams competing. We consider this placement outstanding, and what is remarkable is that four of the six-team members will be back to add experience to the team next year. Many thanks must be given to the Stillwater Home Builders Association, the Oklahoma City Home Builders Association, the State of Oklahoma Home Builders Association, the Tulsa Home Builders Association, and the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association.
