A team of NewSchool of Architecture and Design students have won first place in the category of Virtual Design and Construction at the Associated Schools of Construction (regions 6 and 7) 2013 Student Competition.
NewSchool students competed against student teams from 11 other schools around the country. The competition took place near Reno, Nev. on Feb. 5–8.
NewSchool’s winning team comprised six students from the architecture and construction management programs: Jake Jaenicke, Vincent Macias and Joe Kovac are all enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Constructon Management program; and Steven Hansen, Antonio Barragan and Athena Dadiz, who are all in the Bachelor of Architecture program.
This was the school’s first time participating in the competition.
"We are extremely proud of our (NewSchool) student team members, who demonstrated their superb professionalism, diligence and talent at this challenging competition against some of the top construction management students in the country," said Steve Altman, school president, in a statement. "The participation of students from both our architecture and construction management programs also demonstrates the benefits of interdisciplinary learning, which is encouraged here at NewSchool."
