The 8th annual TimberFever returned in person this past September after two years of virtual events and was a tremendous success. The competition was held at Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson University) with nearly 100 students participating in the 3-day event with students across Canada and the United States.
Daily Commercial News writes:
“Students from universities in four provinces and even some U.S. schools were split into 16 teams and supplied with lumber, materials and given a deadline to design a garden pavilion for a specific vegetable.
“We’re connecting with the future generation of architects and engineers,” says Sean Blake, a carpenter with Local 27, who volunteered a good portion of his weekend to help keep the competition on course.
The event exposes future engineers and architects to the importance of collaborating with builders, which helps minimize conflicts between the disciplines when they go to work in their fields, he says.”
We are grateful for all of the support from our mentors, judges, volunteers, sponsors, organizing committee and look forward to the continued support for TimberFever 2023.
