Supported by contractors Sisks, Walls Construction, ABM Europe and Mott MacDonald, the competition is in its second year. 

Students were given their challenge at this morning’s session.  Working in teams of four, they will take on the role of contractor on a real-life construction project currently underway at Dublin Airport.  They will spend six intensive hours producing their solutions to the challenge before making a 15 minute presentation to the industry panel.‌
