The results are in from the fourth annual TimberFever Design-Build Competition presented by Moses Structural Engineers!
The event was a tremendous success with architecture and civil engineering students from universities across Canada, including Ryerson, U of T, UNB, McGill and more! Participants were given a surprise brief at the start of the competition where they were tasked with building a “Water Station” out of wood. Students from both programs worked together in 16 teams with limited building supplies. The four-day competition was held at Ryerson University and University of Toronto this past weekend.
Since the beginning, we’ve felt a real sense of community around TimberFever, where everyone comes together to collaborate, teach and inspire. It’s been wonderful to watch and we’re so thankful to everyone involved!
Industry leaders volunteered their time to mentor the teams and judge the winners, while and Carpenters Union (Local 27) provided hands-on support during construction.
