CONGRATS TO THE PROJECT PRECAST 2020 WINNERS!
THE CHALLENGE: Design a Texas high school football stadium for a modern era
What might a future high school football stadium look like? That was the design competition for Project Precast 2020. Just in its second year, the competition, sponsored by Sika Corporation, brought college and university students together with industry mentors.
Teams were given just 30 hours to research, collaborate, complete a one-page summary, prepare a powerpoint presentation and present their final design to an audience of more than 100 who packed the meeting room.
