Two-Year Construction Team Places Third Among National Competitors


A team of associate-degree students from Penn College finished third in this week’s Residential Construction Management Competition in Las Vegas, while its four-year counterpart placed 13th among 35 entries. Benjamin L. Thayer, a building construction technology major from Hampton, N.J., and captain of the college’s two-year team, was chosen as an outstanding student-chapter member. Held during the National Association of Home Builders’ International Builders Show, the event gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to solve construction-related problems by working on real-life projects.
