2013 CONSTRUCTION ESTIMATING COMPETITION
submitted by: Kenny Urban, Sam Houston Construction Association
The Sam Houston Construction Association was able to compete on a national level alongside some of the most prestigious construction/engineering universities in the country.
Although Sam Houston was the “underdog” going into the competition, through hard work and dedication, the group was able to make it into the Top 8 and compete for the National Championship. The experience gained, and the recognition received from various universities was an honor in itself. The camaraderie gained from this experience is priceless and one that everyone will remember and benefit from.
In construction, the “bid day” experience can hardly be simulated and most students will never have the opportunity to participate in this event until employment. This competition presented all the challenges and struggles that a company must face when submitting a successful proposal. Thanks to the SHSU professors, the participants had been challenged and placed in similar situations in preparation for this competition. Back
