Architecture and Construction
State Qualifying Event:
Teams of 4
Skilled and Technical
Competitors work together to build a construction project over two days that demonstrates their ability to work as a team. Each team will be required to understand the project elements based on a detailed blueprint and special instructions presented at the pre-competition orientation. Each team must then write a project completion action plan and present their plan as one of the key elements of the competition (all team members must participate in the presentation). During the construction project, the team demonstrates their ability to work together by using their carpentry, roofing, electrical, plumbing, and masonry skills. Judging is based on the team’s presentation skills, ability to construct the project per competition specified building codes, jobsite safety and cleanliness, organized and correct ordering of materials from the competition material depot, proper use and accountability of tools and equipment, and the rate of completion of the project.
The career competitions of the SkillsUSA Illinois Championships follow the current edition of the SkillsUSA Technical Standards. These are available to professional members (advisors and teachers) as a membership benefit following their submission of membership.
