Construction Competition Club (CCC)

The Construction Competition Club is an umbrella organization for various competition teams. This organization also hosts the annual New Builders Competition, a regional construction management competition for underclassmen, coached by upperclassmen.

UC’s CM students are heavily involved in regional and national Construction Management Competitions. Each year, we compete in the Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) Student Competitions (in the commercial, design/build, heavy/civil, and preconstruction divisions), the Ohio Contractors Association (OCA) Estimating Competition, and the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC)'s National Student Construction Management Competition.  Our students have performed exceptionally well in these competitions.  The following is a list of recent competition awards:
