Students Meet Integrated Industry Professionals

A group of twenty-three Construction Management and Architecture students, led by Dr. David Gunderson and Professor Jason Peschel, attended the 2015 Design-Build (DBIA) Conference and Expo in Denver on November 2nd – 4th. The conference was loaded with networking and learning opportunities for students, faculty, and industry representatives alike. The continuing education sessions focused on topics ranging from DBIA best practices to innovation to mentoring of students and young professionals.

In addition to the conference, Matt McGowan (CM ’13) and Ryan Garris (CM’14) of Swinerton Builders provided an outstanding project tour of the SkyHouse project in downtown Denver. The project is a 26-story residential mixed-use development that is scheduled to top-out in December. This exciting project boasts a three-day deck cycle which allowed students to see almost every phase of construction.

We would like to extend a special THANK YOU to the folks at Swinerton Builders for the tour and monetary gift which aided student attendance!
