Team Gate in its first year - WINS Project Precast 2024

Wearing t-shirts that are Gate's signature red, Team Gate took first place at Project Precast 2024 in Denver.

Team gate (above in the front row) was led by head coach Russ Vines and included 4 students: Anna Durfee, Clemson University; Jared Fasshauer, Clemson University; Parker Welsh, Clemson University and Yoshun Zou, Lehigh University. Each student took home $1000.

Project Precast 2024:  The Precast Show in Denver in February was the site of the 6th Annual Project Precast Design Competition.  The number of teams, students, precast industry coaches, sponsors and attendance at the final reveal of the student designs surpassed all prior years by more than 25%.  SIKA and Hamilton Form Company repeated as overall sponsors.

Students from 17 universities were brought together to form 8 teams hosted by CEG, Clark Pacific, Coreslab, Finfrock, Gate, Metromont, Tindall and Wells.  Each team had 48 hours to design a structure that was revealed to them on Wednesday at noon and culminated in a presentation before more than 225 attendees on Friday afternoon.

Each year a structure that is indicative of the host city is chosen.  This year Professor Matt Shea from the University of Colorado Denver challenged the students to create a Museum of Mountain Sports.  The students and coaches were then put on a bus and taken to a site Professor Shea chose in Boulder, as the hypothetical location that would suit such a project.

The winning team was Team Gate, in photo with red t-shirts, a new team sponsor in 2024.  Each member of the student team won $1000, the People’s Choice went to Team Coreslab with prize money of $500 per student and the WOW award went to Team CEG.  Hamilton Form Company added $500 to the WOW award to assure each student took home $250.
