Big Week on the Design Build Front in Asheville NC.!
We started off the week at SODA fabrications understanding the processes of metal working. This introduction and the help from the SODA team propelled the process of completing our steel plate wall connectors for our cantilevered design.
Team work was at its finest this week with the group spread across Asheville. We broke serious ground preparing the foundation footings. Getting Dirty At the YWCA! All the while metal fabrication and bench mock-ups were taking place.
MOVIE NIGHT! Wednesday the group got together and had a movie night in the back yard of Architectural Designer Nicole Szlatenyi’s. http://www.projecthdesign.org/film/
A BIG THANK YOU took place at the river to all the people who have donated time and helped us along the way. The Higlighted Speakers were Chris Joyell ADC Beth Maczka YWCA and instructors Luke W. Perry Miriam Gee, and Flexi- Pave’s Wilton Davis was able to show off their awesome product. This celebration was a great way for the team to answer questions and show the design to the project contributors.
New Belgium Brewery Site Visit
The Team Was able to Visit the Construction Site of New Belgium’s new East Coast Distributing center being built in the river arts district along the French Broad River. Big Thanks to Jared Wheatley for keeping it real and opening many eyes to the perspective of the building construction realm of the process in which design becomes reality.
