2024 Student Competition

The Roofing Alliance is hosting its 10th annual Construction Management Student Competition. This year’s competition project is the Formula 1 Paddock Building located in Las Vegas, NV. 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 that its company is prepared to undertake the project. 

We'd like to thank Commercial Roofers Inc. in Las Vegas for this year's project. 

We are pleased to announce that ten teams will be participating this year. We wish them all the best of luck.
