Big-D Construction is a proud sponsor of the local CAD Competition and this week, the winners of the local competition were announced during an awards banquet at the Associated General Contractors (AGC) office in Salt Lake City.
The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) Chapter coordinates the annual design and drafting competition with area high schools. Students were challenged to design a tiny home. A tiny house is part of an architectural movement that advocates living in small homes. Most tiny homes are roughly 500 square feet or less.
Students had to come up with a design concept for his or her tiny home. The students then had to mock-up, or draft, the design. The designs were then judged by members of the construction industry (including several Big-D employees). The winner of this year’s local competition was 18-year-old Jazmin Rodriquez. Jazmin is a student Hunter High School. Aside from a cash prize, Jazmin will also move on to the regional CAD competition.
During the awards banquet, Big-D project manager Alex Schwerdt served as the keynote speaker. Alex recently designed and oversaw the construction of her own tiny home. Alex presented her initial design concepts and talked about the challenges she faced during the construction of her tiny home.
