On Monday, the design/buildLAB laced up their steel toed boots and ventured out to ESL for a day of work.
A group of us took inventory of all of our tools and supplies- from saws to drills to screws, everything was counted and organized.
A group went and picked up the leftover Alpolic panels that were used for the Masonic Amphitheater. We all chipped in to unload the panels and trim them down to usable sizes.
Bryana and Michael sorted and organized all of the wood, while the rest of us worked on removing the nails from a pile of aged white oak, left over from the demolition of the Masonic Amphitheater site.
The design/buildLAB at Virginia Tech is a Project Based Experiential Learning program focused on the research, development and implementation of innovative construction methods and architectural designs. Students collaborate with local communities and industry experts to conceive and realize built architecture projects that are both educational and charitable in nature. The blog is run by design/buildLAB students, who are currently designing and building a pedestrian bridge in Clifton Forge, VA.
