At the Precast show in Columbus, on Friday, February 24th from 2 to 4 pm watch these 6 teams present their precast designs to a large audience and for a project they knew nothing about just 48 hours prior. Each team of six includes two architecture students, one from engineering and one from construction management.
The sponsors and team mentors are back - with sincere thanks to SIKA, CEG. Clark Pacific, Coreslab, Metromont, Tindall, Wells and Hamilton Form Company.
Cash prizes will go to the best team, the People's Choice and one individual who brought the WOW factor.
