Design Build Competition 2023

Posted March 28, 2023

Promoting career awareness of the construction industry among high school students!

Raymond sponsored Norte Vista High School in the recent Construction Industry Education Foundation (CIEF) Design Build Competition located at Golden West College. This year’s competition showcased 31 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.

Program Highlights:

  • Students Design and Build a Structure for an end User in the Community
  • Industry Professionals Judge the Competition
  • Student Scholarships Awarded
  • ​Teams Connect with Local Industry and Architectural Mentors
  • Travel Reimbursement Available
  • NO COST to any Team Participant

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 your investment in, your students, and congratulations to all the students on the completion of your structures and hard work with full days of building!
