Association News The first-place team in the 2015-2016 Concrete Construction Competition (from left): Faculty Advisor Tara Cavalline, with Hunter Ballard, Carter Dold, Ashton Crabtree, Joshua Beitz, and Mark Stevenson. All are students in the UNC Charlotte Department of Engineering Technology and Construction Management • “Form-and-Pour” using two-sided forming; and • Shotcreting. Teams were provided general information on the formwork system for the form-and-pour placement, including the spacing for bracing, ties, wales, and studs. However, teams were provided little information on the shotcreting option, and so were expected to refer to industry documents and consult industry professionals for development of their recommendations. Solving the problem required teams to perform design calculations, think through the construction process for each option, and prepare schedules and cost estimates. After considering cost and schedule impacts for the placement methods, the UNC Charlotte team recommended the shotcreting option. Second place was awarded to a team from the University of Georgia, comprising team members Katelyn Stallings, Kyle Cotter, Taylor Hebert, and Amanda Rostin. The team’s faculty advisor was Stephan A. Durham. Third place was awarded to a team from the University of Toronto, comprising team members Siu Kwan Amos Chan, Barathan Sureshkumar, and Mark Whitell. The team’s faculty advisor was Brenda McCabe. The 2015-2016 Concrete Construction Competition was organized and managed by Frances Griffith, Associate Director NEED A SHOTCRETE CONTRACTOR OR CONSULTANT FOR A SPECIFIC PROJECT?
