Description:  Sacramento Chapter Luncheon Program, “SACRAMENTO STATE PRESENTATION

The Sacramento State Construction Management Department recently captured the DBIA Student Competition National Championship in Las Vegas, NV at the 2013 Annual Design-Build Conference & Expo. The team of four students submitted a qualification package to be judged regionally. The team developed a design, cost estimate, schedule and site logistics plan in 7 short days for a Student Residence Hall at the College of William & Mary. After the team submitted their proposal response, one week later they were off to Las Vegas to present their design and construction plan to a panel of six industry professional judges. Come hear a reenactment as the students present their award winning presentation.
