CIC North West Construction Challenge

Posted: 26th November 2003

The second CIC North West Construction Challenge took place on 25 November at Bar 38, Manchester. Building on the success of last year’s event, 18 teams from across the region took on the challenge to construct a beam, from materials including elastic bands and garden wire, which would span 900mm and support a ‘load’ of 125mm nails.

PMJ Architects were the ultimate winners of the challenge. The prize for “the most aesthetically pleasing structure” went to Wentworth Consulting, with the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) a close second. Sadly, even the addition of a Kylie Minogue picture couldn’t help the Eversheds team win a prize.
Over 120 people attended the event, which was generously sponsored by Hobbs Reprographic.
