The 12th Annual Builders Association of Eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania Estimating Competition was held Friday March 18, 2022 in Moser Hall. Robert J. Korenic, Associate Professor and Program Coordinator of the Civil and Construction Engineering Technology Program, organizes the event. Joseph Sanson, Associate Professor, CCET, was also involved in the various aspects of the competition this year. The competition featured 3 teams of Civil and Construction Engineering Technology (CCET) students who were mentored by professional contractors/estimators. The students were tasked with estimating the cost to construct an actual project. This year’s assignment was estimating The Builders Association of Eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania new office building. The project consisted of the construction of new offices and meeting rooms that the Builders use to conduct business with the skilled trades used in construction.
