Build A Shed

Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with ABC Carolinas, presents a building competition for students in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester Counties.

What it is

The Build A Shed Competition is a one-day building competition of an 8’ x 11’ shed. Participating schools will be competing against each other to complete the shed using the same blueprint. Students will be mentored by volunteer construction industry professionals in safety, quality, planning, scheduling and communication and will finish the competition with an OSHA 10 Certification.

Why it Matters

Through this building competition for local students, we are providing the opportunity for them to work directly with construction professionals and learn about the fast-paced and lucrative construction industry. Students have the opportunity to connect with leaders that are looking for skilled talent. Construction has numerous entry points, both with and without a college degree, and students who want to learn new skills can find, not a job, but a career within this field.

The sheds are currently being auctioned off to the community and will run until the end of the competition in order to support talent development efforts in the future.

Bidding is open now!
