Canstruction Event Kicks Off Holiday Food Drive

The Structural Ingenuity award went to Bohannan Huston, Inc.  for their structure of hot air balloons floating past a city landscape. CDM Smith took home the Best Display of Theme trophy for "Best Damstruction" – their depiction of Elephant Butte reservoir, dam and spillway, complete with sardine-can boats "floating" on the "water." A 1950s-model Chevy cruising down Route 66 against a background of mountains – designed and built by staff from Construction Reporter, Bradbury Stamm, Dekker/Perich/Sabatini and Yearout Mechanical – was awarded the Best Meal trophy because the products used in the structure could be used to make a complete meal. The team also won the People's Choice award for the most cash donations at the event – at a penny a vote! Cobb Fendley & Associates was awarded Honorable Mention for their depiction of a vintage Volkswagon bus and an oversized historic Route 66 sign.

The other teams involved in the event were the City of Albuquerque, whose structure depicted a Wright Brothers-era biplane and a modern jet flying through clouds of marshmallows; AMEC Environmental, whose structure depicted the New Mexico flag flying over a Native American pueblo; US Bank, whose structure depicted the Sandia Mountains at sunset with the Sandia Tram traveling up the face; and Jaynes Corporation and ACE Leadership High School, who structure depicted the official New Mexico question, Red or Green? – chile, that is!

Judges for the event were the mayor of Rio Rancho, Tom Swisstack; New Mexico Oil and Gas Association Executive Director and former New Mexico State Senator Kent Cravins; Chief Engineer John D'Antonio of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Albuquerque District; Ian Anderson, Publisher of New Mexico Business Weekly; and Sonya Warwick from Roadrunner Food Bank.
