March 2015 Design Charrette

On Tuesday, March 31st, LDDI hosted its third annual Design Charrette and Competition. In total, six student teams competed for the top prize of a $100 gift card to Buffalo Wild Wings. Skip Notte (Dewberry) served as the event’s organizer for the second time, and made the trip to Blacksburg from Charlotte to lead the event. Following Skip’s introduction to the site and development objectives, student teams were given one hour to work on their designs. Scott Kroll (Draper Aden Associates) and Clay Hodges (AHV, Inc.) served as judges for the event along with Skip. The winning team was made up of Casey Heron and Bryant Inge, both of whom are currently enrolled in CEE 4274 – Land Development Design.
