Two teams of Western Nevada College construction management students made a good showing at the Associated School of Construction Regional Competition and Conference in Reno earlier this month. The teams spent two days in a cloistered room, applying their classroom skills and developing presentations that solve real construction management problems.
WNC's Heavy Civil category team, Curtiss Elliott, Cody Cummings, Ryan Anderson, Adam Loomis, Tom Hunt, Bryan Forster, and alternates Steven Forster and Cassandra Noll, finished in fifth place. The team's assignment was to bid, schedule and perform risk assessment for an airport runway safety improvement project. The Commercial category team of Randy Contreras, David McGarry, Alex Jares, Cory Jares, Scott Etichison and Josh Etichison placed in the top 10 for their building construction project plan.
Thirteen schools, including California State Polytechnic University, California State University, Oregon State University and Montana State University, participated in the competition.
Bachelor of Technology peer mentor and competition participant Curtiss Elliot said, "Performing as well as we did alongside these schools proves that the WNC Construction Management program has an opportunity become one of the best programs in the country."
