Phoenix Canstruction

This past weekend a few members from CVL participated in an event called Canstruction. They partnered with Affiliated Engineers (MEP), Skanska USA Building, and SPS+ Architects to design and build a structure entirely out of cans. The structure is currently on display in the West Building of the Phoenix Convention Center.

Preparations for this build began in May, with the design process taking place all summer long. See the attached photos of the structure.

You can help us win an award for our structure! Votes are being tallied through Facebook and in person at the Convention Center. To vote on Facebook search “Phoenix Canstruction”. They have an album that contains all the structures for the “People’s Choice”. Simply “Like” the photos of our structure and that counts as a vote! To vote in person, visit the structure any time before 8/16 to cast a paper ballot.

If you have any questions about the structure, or how to vote, you can ask Matt, Veanette, Miranda, or Cassandra who all helped at build day.

The CVL Service Committee would like to invite all of you to participate in events such as this. We will be holding a quick meeting in the coming weeks to discuss possible events for the holiday season as well as future events you think would be good opportunities for CVL to participate in. If you would like to be a part of the CVL Service Committee please email Matt or Cassandra so they can add you to the list!
