The National Association of Women In Construction (NAWC) sponsor an annual Building Design Program. This year, “KKYT Builders” in Ms. Anne Moore’s Technology Foundations class placed second in the region for the their garden shed design and scale model. Congratulations to team members Katelin Martin, Yohali Gonzalez, Karna Jardsinski, and Tiera Harris for their outstanding project.
The NAWC’s Building Design Program is targeted towards middle school students with participation averaging between 600-800 students per year for the Richmond Chapter. Competing students had to establish a company that was contracted to design and build a 120-180 square foot shed on a site provided. The students then designed a shed to meet the typical needs of such a building, including the features within general construction guidelines, meeting their client’s needs as well as staying below the cost constraint of $18,0000. The team also had to submit floor plans, elevations, quantity take-offs, project costs, site layout, career reports, projects reports, and a scale model for judging.
Congratulations to Team KKYT of GMS and to Ms. Moore!
