Construction Management student team wins award at national builder conference

CCEC Student Team

UNF’s CCEC student team from Construction Management won the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Award, which provides $1,000 for the student chapter and a traveling trophy for the construction management department, at the annual NAHB competition in Las Vegas.

The annual NAHB Student Competition has been a memorable part of the International Builders’ Show (IBS) for more than 30 years as it gives student members the opportunity to apply the skills learned in the classroom to a real construction project. Teams complete a management project and submit it to construction company executives who act as judges. During the convention, students defend their projects to a panel of judges in front of an audience.

UNF’s student team consisted of Max Andrews as president, Connor Haynes, Jacob Bennett, Cameron Stagner, Zachary Thorsen, and Henry Arambu-Cruz, who competed in the Production Home category against 40 other universities to create a proposal for a new development community sponsored by D.R. Hortonin.
