2017 CANstruction

The NarmourWright team participated in this year’s CANstruction event – in an effort to “Make hunger EXTINCT”! Every year, AIA Charlotte hosts a build day at the Convention Center where the AEC community gathers in friendly competition for a good cause. All the cans used in the sculptures are donated to Second Harvest Food Bank to help feed hungry families in the Metrolina area. Thanks to our wonderful sponsors, we were able to raise $2450 and used about 1200 cans in our “dino” sculpture.
