Trada ‘Urban Buzz’ University Challenge 2018

Hanson Plywood is sponsoring the ‘Urban Buzz’ Trada University Challenge Design competition in February 2018. The Competition is based on the innovate design techniques delivered by third year University Students across the UK. The Trada competition has always been a major success with excellent feedback from students, judges and sponsors.

The focal point this year is on third year University students of architecture, engineering and landscape architecture related courses. Students will be divided into twelve teams of five, including 2 architects, 2 engineers and 1 landscape architect. The competition lasts 2 days from the 23rd to the 24th of February 2018.

The project this year is to encourage the students to theorise ways in which timber can be used to create a timber multi-storey car park. Timber design professionals from all over the world will be on hand to give advice to the teams on their projects. The car park also needs to cater to the transitions of hybrid and electric cars in the future.

We at Hanson always look forward to events like these as its important to encourage innovative/creative thinking at a young age. We look forward to the event and wish all the students good luck with their designs.

Thank you to Trada for allowing us to be a part of this competition.
