Building Construction Management students utilize a variety of laboratory facilities to simulate a real-world working environment and they are exposed to environments that simulate a true working environment.
Bidding and Estimating, Field Engineering Laboratories
The Bidding and Estimating & Field Engineering Labs in KNOY contain computerized work stations. They are primarily used for construction in estimating and scheduling as they provide ample space for contract documents and computer hardware.
The Project Management Lab and the Bidding and Estimating Lab are adjacent facilities, allowing the department to operate the labs daily. With construction management softwares and online resources available to all BCM students thereby providing general computer access to all outside scheduled class hours.
D. Dorsey Moss Construction Laboratory
This area is a large two-story facility with an overhead crane. Each semester a wood-frame, steel-frame, and concrete structure are erected by the students. Such hands-on projects provide the opportunity for junior-level students to supervise the freshmen-level students in their construction tasks, while also maintaining safety, efficiency, accuracy, and timely production.
Field Engineering Laboratory
The department's Field Engineering Lab represents today's field engineering office. There are 8 work stations networked to printers and plotters and utilize surveying software. Each workstation seats 3 students. Carpeting was installed throughout the lab to support the setup of surveying tripods during coursework. The work stations are accomplished through donations by company sponsorship. Sponsors also assist with updates in technology.
