OSU CSM Student Teams Successful at NewB Competition

March 2, 2018
OSU Heavy/Civil Team, 1st place in their division

Each year, students from Ohio State’s Construction Systems Management (CSM) program participate in the University of Cincinnati New Builders (NewB) Competition. The competition features three divisions: commercial, residential, and heavy/civil construction. This year, Ohio State sent 18 CSM students as a part of three teams, each participating in one of the divisions. After months of dedicating time and energy, the efforts of all the teams paid off as each team placed in the top 3 or their division.

The OSU CSM commercial team placed 3rd in their division, the residential team placed 2nd, and the heavy/civil team placed 1st, winning their division. Congratulations to all the students involved!
