Design Build Competition

Design Build gathers teams from local high schools and community colleges in a two-day competition to design and build their own structure. Recent years have brought a focus to green designs, framing and construction techniques. Each school is allowed to sell their final product and retain the revenue to support their program.

Important Announcement: Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the 2020 SoCal Design Build has been cancelled and the NorCal competition is on hold until further notice. You can still support students enrolled in BITA classes by making a donation to the school's program in lieu of a sponsorship. Your gift to CHF will fortify workforce education in these challenging times. My gift supporting students.
