FT1 and PT2 Construction Project Management MSc students from the School of the Built Environment are taking part in their own internal Enginuity Competition as part of their module 'Business Management'.

The students are split into 10 teams, and competing over 5 rounds, or one and a quarter simulated years, between June and August 2022.

PERIOD 8:  "A tough round, but not for 'Precision Construction Services'!"

Period 8, the penultimate round of the Competition proved to be a tough one for the majority of teams, with 70% posting deteriorating results. However, it was not all doom and gloom, and "Precision Construction Services" turned the form book on its head with an astounding 17% improvement, easily the best in the period, that saw them climb 3 places up to second, and their highest position to date. They are now well ahead of the teams directly below them, "Imperium Construction LTD" who stayed in 3rd, and "Sky View Construction", who made an impressive 4 place gain up to 4th with modest growth as those around them struggled.

At the very top of the table there is surely no catching "Alpha Construction", whose consistency continues to impress as further 10% growth saw them stretch their lead even further to just shy of 300 points as they reached 1,905 pts. With just one round to go each team will be looking to finish strongly, and every decision will count in the final reckoning.
