BCTC's student chapter of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) placed 13th in the Residential Construction Competition at the January International Builders Show (IBS) held January 19-21, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Tom Brannon, Kimberly Stephens, and Jason Stewart joined over 65,000 attendees at the show, which offered more than 250 educational seminars and a million net square feet of displays from 1,700 manufactures and suppliers.
The competition, sponsored by Centex Homes, and held at Caesars Palace, hosted 66 teams from across the country. High schools, two- and four-year colleges were each given a different project for which they had to develop a working set of drawings, a detailed material estimate and construction schedule including all options for the project. Developed solutions were submitted to the judges for review prior to the IBS. In conjunction with the IBS, teams gave oral presentations and defended their solutions in a timed question and answer session with a panel of construction company executives.
The BCTC chapter's attendance was made possible through chapter fund- raising activities and scholarship funds provided by The National Housing Endowment, a philanthropic arm of the NAHB.
