About the Competition

ASCE has partnered with the American Wood Council (AWC), APA - Engineered Wood Association (APA), and Simpson Strong-Tie (SST) to pilot the Timber-Strong Design BuildSM (TSDBSM) Competition. The competition seeks student teams to design and build an artistically creative 2-story wood light-framed building that is sustainable, aesthetically pleasing and structurally durable. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 in-person build has been replaced with the creation of a building information model (BIM).

This competition will continue to be offered as a pilot competition in 2022. Stay tuned for the rules release.
