Cody|Brock Sponsors the 29th Annual Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) Student Competition, Construction Management Conference and Job Fair

February 10 – 13, 2016

For the first time Cody|Brock staff, including Vice President Casey Vermette, Project Manager Amanda Zelnik and Operations Administrator Sandi Smith, attended the annual ASC Student Competition, Management Conference and Job Fair held in Nevada. Teams from participating universities hailed from 13 western states including Alaska and Hawaii, with a handful of additional teams traveling from as far as Florida and Virginia.

The first day’s networking reception and dinner with over 500 faculty members and industry professionals provided an opportunity to meet with leading construction management faculty, learn more about their programs, and discover which students might be best suited to Cody|Brock‘s internship and career opportunities.

The second day featured 30- to 45-minute student team presentations in Commercial, Design-Build, Mixed-Use and Pre-Construction. Teams were comprised of five to six students, each of whom took on a specific project-related role such as Project Manager, Superintendent, Estimator, Scheduler, etc. Teams were allotted 20 minutes to present their construction solution to a panel of judges, followed by a question and answer period. This inside look into the teams and competition was instrumental in identifying students for both our summer internship program and for project engineer positions.

The final day’s Job Fair presented the opportunity to meet individually with approximately 40 exceptional students, many of whom we had observed during the team presentations.
