In South Jersey, the South Jersey Food Bank just finished it’s first annual Canstruction Event at Cherry Hill Mall. Three teams put their imaginations and architectural skills to the test in the inaugural competition. Participants included GREYHAWK, a construction management and consulting firm; Lammey & Giorgio, an architectural and planning firm, and Adams Rehmann & Heggan (ARH), a consulting design firm.
The judging panel included representatives from Lockheed Martin, Rowan University’s College of Engineering, Home Depot, and AIA New Jersey (AIA-NJ). A number of awards were presented at an Awards Ceremony this past Sunday, October 4th.
Both events are sanctioned by Canstruction®, a non-profit organization that has helped hunger-relief organizations like FBSJ raise 30 million pounds of food through its innovative twist on conducting food drives.
