ABC Awards Student Chapter of the Year and CMC Winner at Leadership Week 2017
The ABC student chapter at the University of Cincinnati was named the 2017 Student Chapter of the Year for its accomplishments in programming, community service, communications and public relations and interaction with its sponsor, the ABC Ohio Valley Chapter, during the academic year. The student chapter received a $2,000 cash prize; complimentary registration, hotel accommodations and airfare for two members to attend ABC’s 2018 Legislative Week in Washington, D.C., June 24-29; and coverage in ABC National publications.
Colorado State University, sponsored by the ABC Rocky Mountain Chapter, was named the Construction Management Competition (CMC) overall winner of 2017. The 2017 CMC, sponsored by Autodesk, On Center, and RS Means, focused on the construction of the Universal Aventura Hotel, a 17-story structure with 600 guestrooms, lobby and public and support spaces. Each team was required to provide a price and a technical proposal before competing in a spontaneous exercise led by the Competition Committee. Colorado State University was selected based on their success in estimating, project management and scheduling, safety and quality control.
