CANstruction 2011

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

In April, 2011, Erickson Structural was involved in the Portland CANstruction, put on by the Society for Design Administration (SDA).   CANstruction is a competition for AEC-industry firms in which structures are built with canned food.  The food is then donated to the Oregon Food Bank.  Amy Metteer, Administrative Assistant for Erickson Structural, was a committee member, assisting with acquiring jury members for the judging of the structures.  Brandon Erickson was a jury member and presented the “Best Engineering Ingenuity” award at the CANstruction Gala on April 26, 2011.  To learn more about CANstruction and to see photos of this year’s structures visit!/Canstructionpdx.
