ArchEngBuild Challenge


The ArchEngBuild Challenge is an intensive 3-day competition for New Zealand tertiary students studying architecture, engineering or construction management.

ARCHENGBUILD 2020 EVENT: 8TH TO 10TH SEPTEMBER 2020

The challenge

The ArchEngBuild Challenge involves 30 of New Zealand’s top final-year students in architecture, engineering or construction management. Over 3 days, students collaborate in 10 teams of three (one from each discipline) to respond to one real-life client brief.

The teams’ mission is to enhance the environment of the host town or city while also demonstrating effective inter-disciplinary collaboration.

This years event has been delayed due to COVID-19 and will now be held on 8th to 10th September 2020. Please submit your nomination to archengbuild@branz.co.nz by 31 July 2020.

Prize

The winning team receives a $7,500 prize, awarded at a prize-giving event at the end of the competition.
