Students from the Sam Fox School and the McKelvey School of Engineering participated in the 2019 Project Precast competition in Louisville, Kentucky. The national event is sponsored by the PCI Foundation, an organization that brings together the precast concrete industry and the academic community through curriculum development grants.

During the two-day design charrette, architecture, engineering, and construction management students from programs across the country were assigned to teams of three. Each team worked with a professional to create a design proposal for a horse barn in the Kentucky landscape.

Kinga Pabjan (MArch/MCM) was part of the team that took first place, and Jairo Laverde (MArch/MCM) and Taili Zhuang (BS in Architecture) were part of the team that was awarded an honorable mention. Assistant professor Pablo Moyano served as faculty advisor.
