Knik sponsors UAF civil engineering students in bridge competition
Wed, Sep 06, 2017
Elliott Anderson, Project Engineer for Knik at the Red Dog Mine Airport, is a recent graduate of the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF). He and his former classmates recently participated in an annual Steel Bridge competition organized by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The contest is designed to foster excellence and ingenuity among civil engineering students across the nation and requires groups to create a bid document for a bridge complete with design and manufacturing specifications. Supported by Knik Construction, Elliott's group traveled to Idaho this spring to compete at the regionals and on to Oregon for the national competition. "Our UAF team placed tenth out of 127 schools from seven countries," Elliott says. "We appreciate Knik's generous sponsorship of our team." The UAF team is pictured above with Elliott at far right.
