Each year a unique project is chosen to challenge our student design-build competitors. This year’s project is an activity and recreation center on a liberal arts university campus in the United States.
This two-phase competition gives teams from colleges and universities the chance to respond to a Request for Qualifications (the first phase) and a Request for Proposals (the second phase), with the top three teams from the RFP phase presenting their proposals to a panel of industry leaders at the 2023 Design-Build Conference & Expo in National Harbor, MD this November. The competition is impressive and provides an incredible opportunity for young design-builders. Get started by registering your team today!
