2023 Student Competition

The Roofing Alliance is hosting its ninth annual Construction Management Student Competition. The project for this year’s competition is the Globe Life Field also known as the Texas Rangers Baseball Stadium located in Arlington, TX. Each team had to research the project, review the plans and specifications, and assemble a full estimate and proposal to submit a qualified bid package.  They had to work to find a competitive edge to beat the competition while still maintaining a reasonable margin. For this project, each team had to decide on the correct application methods, show overall roofing knowledge and illustrate its company is prepared to undertake the project.

We'd like to thank KPost Company in Dallas for supplying this year's project.
