From time to time, a group from CEE431: Construction Contracting stops by to use Design Lab 1 facilities. They have been working since the beginning of the semester on preparing a construction bid for Fire Station No. 6 in Ann Arbor. This building has already been built, but the exercise is meant to help students develop skills including but not limited to scheduling, quantity takeoffs, critical path analysis and budgeting.
The students, also known as “Team X: The Thundercats!” work in Design Lab 1 because it is able to accommodate their unusual needs–they require workshop height tables to examine construction documents as well as computing programs and monitors available in the Digital Media Commons. They also utilized the projection system to rehearse their Case Study presentation earlier in the year. Good luck Thundercats!!
The course, taught by Professor Rasha Stino is available in both the Fall and Winter semesters.
