Mayor Bell to Judge the Creative Food Drive

We are incredibly honored to announce that the Mayor of the great city of Durham, Bill Bell, will serve as a Judge at our annual food drive competition/community festival, C.F.D. {Creative Food Drive}.

We are so grateful to have him come out and see what our competing teams design and build! With his background in engineering and his passion for the people of Durham, we'll be interested to see how he judges the construction and creativity of the sculptures.

Thank you so much, Mayor Bell!

C.F.D. {Creative Food Drive} is MHAworks' third annual food drive competition/community festival that has raised over 20,000 pounds of food to date.  CFD is comprised of businesses and organizations raising non-perishable food items and designing and building a sculpture in a competition of epic proportions, while being entertained by live music, food trucks, local beer and a kid's zone. C.F.D. will be held on Saturday, October 19, 3-7 pm at the American Tobacco North Quad. Learn more about CFD here!

Durham Public Schools visits the MHAworks office

MHAworks recently hosted a group of high schoolers from Durham Public Schools to provide insight and encourage future involvement in the AEC field.

In this session, our staff sat down with the high schoolers to explain the realm of possibilities in the AEC industry and to answer any questions they had about pursuing a career. The students were  enlightened on the several different avenues they could pursue and enthusiastic about the opportunities not previously known to them.

Jaymes Carter, Project Designer, reflects, "Developing the next generation of architects and designers is important to our profession. There are many young individuals who dream of doing great things. Architecture is the perfect canvas for them to begin to paint their future. I enjoy talking with young people to help them see what doors can be opened through education and hard work."
