This year marks the fourth anniversary of the Albuquerque Canstruction®competition, to be held October 19 at Sandia Resort and Casino. There are over 200 cities participating worldwide in Canstruction events. CH2M HILL is the organizer of the one in Albuquerque. Partners and sponsors include Construction Reporter, Girl Scouts of NM Trails, US Forest Service, PRNewswire, Bohannan Huston Inc., AMEC, HDR, CobbFendley, the ASK Academy, AUI Inc. and the cities of Albuquerque and Rio Rancho.

 

The theme for this year’s competition is the New Mexico Centennial. There are 18 design/build teams. Each team, comprised of several local businesses, will compete in the design and construction of unique creations with cans of food. The public is invited to view the completed structures from 5-7 pm.

 

Roadrunner Food Bank of NM will receive all food and funds donated, and the event will mark the kickoff of their fall food drive. Available sponsorships range from $200 to $2,500, which includes a mention in all event advertising. The deadline for sponsorship is August 3. Canstruction offers Albuquerque businesses an opportunity to give back to the community, while promoting the fields of science, technology, math, architecture and engineering, and increasing public awareness of local issues of hunger and food insecurity.

 

As a competition, the Canstruction exhibits show imagination, humor, engineering and creativity at work while demonstrating concern for less fortunate members of the community.
