Who are our 2018 GSC Finalists?

We are now days away from the start of the finals week for the 2018 CIOB Global Student Challenge; this year the finals will be held in Toronto, Canada from 8 – 12 July.

The teams that will be competing to win the challenge are as follows:

  • Ares (Loughborough University)
  • Cambridge University Revolutionary Building (Cambridge University)
  • Stalwart Construction Group (George Brown College)
  • Sense4 (Chongqing University)
  • Profiteer Projects (Curtin University)
  • Trojan Corporation (RMIT University)

By getting to the finals of Global Student Challenge, they have identified themselves as future leaders of the global construction industry. The finals will be held alongside Members’ Forum, allowing the students to meet and network with senior construction professionals from around the world.

Loughborough University’s teams have always performed well in Global Student Challenge, and this marks the second year in a row that they’ve had a finalist team. After debuting in the competition in 2017, this makes it the second year in two that Cambridge University have had a team in the finals – they also qualified in first position so look to be the ones to beat.

Stalwart Construction Group from George Brown College is the first team to represent their University in the finals, and they won’t have to travel far as they are our first Canada-based finalist team.

Sense4 follows a long line of successful teams from Chongqing University, and Trojan Corporation must be hoping to replicate the success of RMIT CM Team 2 – the team that won in 2014 from RMIT University.

Our final team is Profiteer Projects from Curtin University – they are the first team to represent Curtin University in the Global Student Challenge finals since The Mighty Ducts in 2015. That team finished 5th overall – can Profiteer Projects best that ranking this year?
