ACE DC is proud to announce their ACE Washington Lee High School team from Arlington, VA and their ACE Suitland High School team from Forestville, MD both participated in the 2012 CIRT-ACE Design Competition. The Washington Lee team is led by Tony Maida of Jacob’s Engineering and the Suitland team is led by Nadiyah Scarlett of the General Services Administration. Congratulations to all the mentors and students that worked in collaboration to successfully design and complete their project challenge for the competition.
39 teams from across the nation entered into the 6th Annual CIRT-ACE Design Competition. The theme behind the competition is celebrating the innovations and contributions the design/construction community makes to the quality of American life, while understanding the issues and challenges the industry faces to deliver on this legacy. Teams were required to submit an RFP for one of the following project options/challenges:
• A Parking Garage Outside the Box
• Waterfront/Riverside Park
• History Museum
The panel of judges for this design competition will be mainly comprised of CEOs and presidents of the leading design and construction firms in the United States that are members of CIRT. Judges will look at methods and processes used to arrive at the design solution and the ability of the ACE students to convey an articulate presentation. Judging will take place the morning of May 1st during the CIRT Spring Conference at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Washington DC.
