TimberFever goes virtual this year!
TIMBERFEVER DESIGN-BUILD COMPETITION: Sep 24-27, 2020
Stay tuned for details
Welcome to TimberFever
TimberFever is an annual design-build competition presented by Moses Structural Engineers. We bring together architecture and civil engineering students from universities across Canada to build a life-size structure out of wood.
We’re working on a new innovative approach for this year’s competition. Going virtual will allow us to open the competition to even more participants and leverage digital technologies used in our industry.
Practicing architects and engineers are invited as mentors to provide assistance and guidance for each team’s design during the design charette: A perfect opportunity for participants to grow their network and practice their professional communication skills.
Teams are given a design brief, limited material, and limited fabrication time. Representatives from the Carpenters’ District Council of Ontario assist teams during construction to bring their sketches to life. Participants will be able to apply the knowledge they have learned from school and push creative limits.
Congratulations to our 2019 Winners!
“It’s about having fun and also learning a lot about the practical aspects of construction. Within our faculty we don’t get that much practical experience.”
“Our idea was to make it not look like a box, so we made an octagon, and just for the look of it we made it slope shaped. We don’t know if they’re going to hold out to the specific force they’re going to apply.”
TimberFever would not be possible without the help of our generous sponsors. View all sponsors.
