The Design Build Competition is hosted by the Home Builders Council (HBC) every year. The HBC’s primary purpose is to provide students who are interested in pursuing a construction oriented career with scholarships and financial support through grants and other donations and to advance homebuilding educational programs at high schools, community colleges and universities.
The HBC coordinates the Annual Design/Build Competition, which is held each spring at the Orange County Marketplace. Design/Build is a two-day event involving teams from Southern California high schools and community colleges all competing to build their own structure (lifeguard tower, storage shed, etc.) All teams are required to go through much the same process as professional architects and builders: students are asked to draw their own architectural and building plans in advance and to then incorporate input from ongoing building and planning code inspections as their construction progresses.
This year’s winners for HBC design build 2014 contest the High School ROP section are, in descending order: 1. CA School for the Deaf, 2. Anaheim, 3. Brea Olinda High School (BITA). This year’s winners for Youth Build are: 1. Antelope Valley, 2. CCEP, 3. CA Family Life Center.
