Support Burbank construction students as they compete to win
Drop by Consumnes River College today or tomorrow and lend support to Luther Burbank High School construction students competing in the annual Sacramento Regional Builders Exchange Design/Build Competition.
Using criteria provided by the exchange, each team will build a 96-square-foot structure of its own design.
A panel of architectural and construction professionals from the greater Sacramento area serve as judges. According to the exchange website, “Structures are judged on the students’ ability to perform all the functions of the project including planning and design, scheduling, overall project management, conduct, as well as craftsmanship, team work and safety.”
The Sacramento Regional Builders Exchange Education Foundation and the construction community provide all the materials needed for each team to complete their project. Schools may keep the completed projects and use it themselves or they may sell it to fund other school projects.
The competition is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 6-7 in the Consumnes southwest parking lot (closest to the corner of Center Parkway and Calvine Road).
