$15,000 up for grabs in design competition
CementTrust is not in the business of creating building designs, but we know that many of our readers make a living by engineering or designing strong structures. We do promote good engineering as a part of the concrete supply chain. So we thought that this information should be shared so that you could spread the news.
Our friends in the Department of Civil Engineering & Geological Sciences at the University of Notre Dame are seeking innovative conceptual designs for housing for developing countries. This project is partially funded by the National Science Foundation to bring sustainable shelter to the 1 in 7 people who live in substandard and unsafe housing
The program is called the Shelters for All Competition and the designs will be assessed in terms of their hazard resilience, feasibility, sustainability, viability and scalability.
Those who are interested in joining the effort and sharing your housing ideas should go to the Shelters For All website and get registered.
Safe, secure designs using quality materials and craftsmanship are the most sustainable efforts that we can share with the poorest on our planet. Go Register and be a part of a construction revolution for the poor.
