A team of eight Durham School construction management students (one graduate student, four seniors, and three juniors) recently brought home a Merit Award in the ASC Region 6 & 7 National Student Competition in Reno, Nevada.

The Durham School team participated with 12 other teams from across the country in the Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) competition presented by Clark Construction. It was The Durham School’s first appearance at this competition, and it has been more than 10 years since Scott Campus fielded an ASC competition team.

“The students did an incredible job at their first-ever national competition and were commended for their outstanding teamwork,” said Brandon Kreiling, Durham School assistant professor of practice and team mentor.

The competition is by far the largest and most recognized in the U.S. with more than 1,460 students and 195 teams representing 49 universities nationwide. More than 100 construction companies, roughly one-third of the Engineering News-Record’s Top 100, participate in the event—many as competition judges. Team Nebraska placed higher than some notable competition, including teams from universities such as Arizona State, Auburn, California Polytechnic State, Stanford, and Southern California.
