GEMO is the main partner for the 2018 AKADEMIK HALL OF THE YEAR competition

Olomouc, 14 March 2018 – The 2018 HALL OF THE YEAR competition will take place on Thursday, 19 April 2018 at the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague. The competition is announced in the category of pre-prepared models and is intended for bachelor’s and master’s degree students at universities in the Czech Republic and abroad.

The main objective is to support students who are enthusiastic about the field and to give them the opportunity to compare their skills and meet professionals from the construction industry. Contestants are tasked with designing and building a model of a structure according to a specific assignment, which will then be subjected to a load test.

Attractive prizes are prepared for the student contestants. Prizes will be awarded to the first five teams whose model complies with all competition rules and successfully passes the load test. The resulting order of models will be determined by their effectiveness, i.e. the ratio between the total load capacity of the model and its own weight.
