Three National Finalists Announced for 2020 Design & Construction Competition
3/16/2020 - (McLean, VA) - Using as inspiration a quote from Winston Churchill, ““Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm,” CIRT announced today this year’s CIRT National Design & Construction Competition’s three national finalists.
This year, 52 entries were submitted from 24 Affiliates/Chapters across the country with only three garnering the coveted right to go onto the final presentation round. The three finalist teams will have that opportunity to present remotely/virtually to a panel of judges. The three finalists for 2020 are:
On behalf of your Affiliate/Chapter, the teams will now have an opportunity to vie for a top prize of $5,000 before a panel of distinguished CEO judges composed mostly of CIRT members. The judges will analyze your team presenter/spokesperson’s ability to make a coherent, well thought-out, clear presentation on the design/construction approaches within the project’s objectives while being fully responsive to the competition package elements in the challenge/option. In sum: the presentation round will be judged on two major elements: quality of presentation and competence of the overall entry to be fully responsive to the challenge.
Water Resource Management & Preservation Challenge (18 entries): 1st Runner-Up: ACE Mentor of Greater Philadelphia/Team 10; 2nd Runner-Up: ACE Mentor of Washington, Inc./Seattle Technology Team;
Gastronomic Center Challenge (25 entries): 1st Runner-Up: ACE Mentor of Illinois/Chicago Team 1; 2nd Runner-Up: ACE Mentor Program of Illinois/Chicago Team 6
More details about the logistics for the virtual final competition will be announced soon.
