TimberFever is open to architecture and civil engineering university students across Canada. Students must be entering at least the second year of their program. For your registration fee of $30, you will receive an event t-shirt, a gift bag, food during the event and other goodies.
Note: Accommodations and transportation are not provided. If you require accommodations for this event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, and they can offer you further information.
If you’re not in either of these programs and you would still like to get involved, we would love to have you join as one of our volunteers!
University students from both Architecture and Civil Engineering programs across Canada collaborate, and work to bring ideas to life. By bringing both disciplines together, they can draw from each others’ strengths and create truly unique solutions.
Industry Professional Mentors
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.
TimberFever volunteers get a free event t-shirt and snacks throughout the four days. This event would not be possible without your help! Sign up info coming soon.
