The Construction Management Competition is ABC’s hallmark event promoting careers in construction management. Sponsored and supported by ABC members, the CMC features teams of college and university students testing their project management, estimating, safety, quality control and presentation skills.

This competition gives the nation’s top construction management students a glimpse into the real world of construction, as well as an opportunity to showcase their talents and provides them valuable, resume-building experience. In addition to creating a significant learning opportunity, the competition fosters an environment that will bring out the best in each team, encourages dialogue among the students, builds team spirit and heightens problem-solving skills as students rise to meet this challenge.

Teams will be limited to a total of seven participants for the 2024 competition due to space limitations. Each team is required to have four competitors and a faculty advisor. Teams are allowed to bring up to two alternates.
