CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT: A team of five students from Delgado Community College won second place for their solutions to real-life construction management problems during competition against teams from other two-year colleges at the 2015 National Association of Home Builders International Builders Show in Las Vegas in January.

The team members are part of the Delgado student chapter of the National Association of Home Builders. Fifty-four teams representing universities, community colleges, high schools and career technical schools across the United States participated in the annual competition.

The Delgado students completed a residential custom two-story home in Las Vegas. The project included a complete set of architectural design/construction working drawings, construction product specification research, materials and labor estimates/total bid, a daily construction schedule of the building process, value engineering, and zoning/building codes.
