The Spring 2017 Design / Build Senior Capstone Project took place Thursday, May 3rd in Bishop Favrao Hall. This year's Request for Proposal was to provide full design and construction services for a state-of-the-art Environmental Sciences Center building located on a private college campus in Virginia Beach, Virginia with a total overall gross area of approximately 30,000 to 40,000 SF. This building is to contain Biology, Chemistry, and Environmental Sciences laboratories, classrooms, faculty offices, along with an event space that would serve a multitude of high-profile functions for the college. The design was required to achieve LEED Certification.
The "Texas" Team took first place and team members include Brian Alfaro, Matt Del Signore, Tyler Guill, James Martin, Mike McDonald, and Annie Skorulski. The "Florida" Team took second place and team members include Nicholas Cober, David Gayarck, Cat Hauser, Redding Midura, Kevin Sykes, and Pat Thornberg. The "Alabama" Team took third place and members include Tim Aker, Aaron Guy, Kyle Mancini, Nate Mancini, Maxime Manzi, and Mauricio Yapur. As always, all teams performed well and judging was not easy.
