Raymond sponsored Norte Vista High School in the recent Construction Industry Education Foundation (CIEF) Design Build Competition. This year’s competition showcased 17 Southern California teams challenged with constructing a 96 square-foot structure over a two-day period.
Prior to construction, and over a four-month period, each team completed the challenge of designing and preparing construction documents for the structure, which were submitted for plan review by volunteer community plan-checkers and architectural professionals.
On the final day of building, structures were judged by industry professionals on the completion of design, construction, code compliance, and safety.
The mission of CIEF is to empower students to pursue careers in the building environment. CIEF develops construction, design, and trade professionals through educational endeavors, mentoring initiatives, and training activities.
Thank you to CIEF for hosting the Design Build Competition year after year. Raymond is proud to have participated, helping to provide opportunities for youth. Thank you to the instructors for facilitating real world experience for, and investment in, your students, and congratulations to all the students on the completion of your structures and hard work with full days of building!
