Broadmoor Team Invited for Guest Lecture at LSU - Tuesday, November 11, 2014
Baton Rouge, LA – Broadmoor Project Executive John Manion,andSenior Project Manager, Michael Park, were invited by Professor Don Schneider to lead a guest lecture for his Construction Management class at Louisiana State University (LSU).  

The Bert S. Turner Department of Construction Management is a well-regarded program of the University’s award-winning College of Engineering. One of the leading components of the program is its collaboration with the State’s professional community, an effort through which Broadmoor has been able to help educate the future construction workforce for many years.

This guest lecture to entry-level Construction Management students focused on coaching students about the challenges and problem-solving skills necessary to manage the inevitable changes that transpire over the course of a construction project’s life.

In speaking to more than 75 students, over the course of two separate class periods, Manion and Park brought their collective real-life experiences to bear in helping the students understand the best ways to mitigate these situations while keeping a project on its time and budgetary course.

After fielding numerous student questions, the two had time to participate in one-on-one conversations with the students and discuss with Schneider further guest lecture ideas. The course consists of a dynamic series of guest lecturers throughout the semester, and Broadmoor is grateful for the opportunity to have played a part in this important part of the learning experience of this year’s Construction Management class.
