Overview :

Congratulations! Your team has the opportunity to win a $1m contract!

Your team is currently involved in bidding for a major bridge construction project.  The customer has designed a challenging project to help them choose the most effective team amongst a number of rival companies.

  • Free standing structure
  • Size of Bridge must allow your team to pass through it (one at a time)
  • Up to $5000 could be awarded (against your costs) for the beauty of the design.
  • Up to $1000 will be awarded for the team name. 

Tools/Items required :

A4 paper sheets , Tape


Actual construction time starts 35 minutes from receiving this specification (set by customer)

You must be ready at this time.  Construction time will commence whether you are ready or not.

  • The KRA’s for the project
  • Role & responsibilities allocated for the task
  • All customers and suppliers identified (both internal and external)
