“Clemson’s Design-Build Team extended its first place winning streak this year as members took home top honors at the annual Associated Schools of Construction (ASC)/Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) Southeast Regional Design-Build Student Competition for the third year in a row.

Construction science majors Frank Cardella, Cameron Tuckfield and Brad Nolan, along with architecture and construction science double majors Jessica Latour and Chris Monroe and architecture major Jill Hazel represented Clemson at this year’s challenge.

The competition, held in Charlotte, N.C. from October 26 to 27, brought together teams from schools such as Auburn University, Georgia Tech, Georgia Southern University, Southern Polytechnic State University, University of Florida and Western Carolina University.

At the competition, teams were presented with the same construction challenge upon arrival. This year, all teams received the project to create a design for a $4 million ultraviolet waste water treatment facility to serve as an expansion to an existing water treatment plant in Fulton County, Ga. Only 12 hours were allowed for planning and drafting the written plan which must have been promptly submitted to the judges by 8 p.m. on the evening of the first day.”
