Canstruction’s Build Day is rapidly approaching! We staged a test build this week to prepare for Build Night, which will be Wednesday, November 2. We’re very happy with our design and we look forward to sharing it with everyone.

Would you like to contribute to Canstruction 2016? It’s not too late!

ads ENGINEERS is proud to be participating in Canstruction 2016!

Canstruction is a charity event challenging participants’ design and construction skills while also raising awareness of and supplies for local food banks. Participants utilize canned goods to create structures, which are then judged on their artistic and technical merit – and once the competition is over, all of the canned food is donated to local food banks.

We are excited to join our colleagues throughout New York City in this year’s Canstruction competition – but we need your help in purchasing the canned food that will be the building blocks of our design. We hope you’ll consider assisting us in participating in this great community charity event. All of our contributors will be recognized as partners with ads ENGINEERS on our signage during the event. You can click on the Paypal button below to make a contribution directly to ads ENGINEERS’ Canstruction 2016 fund.

Check back over the next few months as we will be sharing updates as we get closer to the competition. Thank you for your support!
