"Design Build", sponsored by the Sacramento Regional Builders Exchange, promotes career awareness of the constructionindustry among high school students. It is an attempt to recognize student achievements and affords the construction industry the opportunity to support schools, students and career technical education programs. The event provides an opportunity for high school students to gain firsthand knowledge of the construction industry and have hands on experience in the construction process.
Participating student teams are judged on the completion of design, plan reeview safety and health adherence and construction phases of a structure. Each team is challenged to design and prepare construction documents according to criteria outlined by SRBXEF, submit construction documents to their local building department for code reiew and approval, and build their structure at a competition site Each team is monitored by an instructor or a responsible adult during the course of the competition.
