Built Environment students successfully defend CIOB competition trophy

Built Environment students from Dundee and Angus College have triumphed at the annual Chartered Institute of Building student challenge.

The event which was run by Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and held at Dundee’s Apex Hotel saw teams from different universities and colleges compete against each other to solve a construction related scenario.

Teams were given no prior knowledge of the brief and students were given two hours to research, produce and present their design proposal. This involved the research and design of a proposal for a new education centre within a country estate. They then researched, produced and presented their design proposal to the industry led judging panel.

The team from Dundee and Angus College showcased their knowledge and skills and were complimented by the judging panel on their professional presentation and attention to detail. The judges were impressed by the way the multidisciplinary team of Construction Management, Architectural Technology and Civil Engineering students worked well together demonstrating their in-depth knowledge of their subject area.

The winners from Dundee and Angus College:

Maia Laing: HND Construction Management (part-time)
Jake Malcolm: HND Civil Engineering (year 2)
William Taylor: HND Civil Engineering (year 1)
Rourke Davidson: HND Architectural Technology (year 2)
