After leading for so long in the Competition, and then losing top spot in the penultimate round,
it could have all gone so horribly wrong for Washington based
"Capitol Based" (Parsons Corporation, United States), but they held their nerve,
and showed great resolve to post 8% growth in period 18 to regain top spot, and deservedly be crowned as the
Enginuity 2019 Champions, especially after leading for so long in the Competition,
with a winning score of 2,692 pts.
Their victory sees the title return to the United States for the third consecutive year, but for the first time
for proud sponsors Parsons, who also secured the runners up spot with a stunning final round of 13% growth from those
"Jersey Geoengineers" (Parsons Corporation, United States) that saw them
propelled from 6th to 2nd, making up for their 3rd place finish last year, but it was only just as they pipped
previous leaders "JPN^2 International" (WSP US, United States) by just 1 point,
as WSP had to settle for third place this year, but still a notable achievement.
And incredibly Parsons as a company also claimed 4th place after
"Plant-Based" (Parsons Corporation, United States) held firm despite a
late swoop from "Robert Bird Group Aotearoa" (Robert Bird Group, New Zealand).
All the way down the final table the teams should be proud of their performance, particularly those with no
previous Enginuity experience, finishing in the top 12 of another large international field of 190 starters,
a superb effort, and they would all be a sound long term investment if it was the real world.
