Yes, We CANstruction

Chicago — What do you get when you bring professionals from the design and construction industry together with thousands of cans and a good cause?

The most unique food charity event in the world – CANstruction.

CANstruction held its sixth annual design competition where contestants built giant, intricate structures out of canned food that were all donated to the Greater Chicago Food Depository. AVI-SPL’s Chicago office took part in this worthy cause helping the organization to raise more than 94,436 cans!

The AVI-SPL/Harley Ellis Deveraux team built a giant grocery bag out of 3,152 canned foods. Our Hole Foods-themed bag was “torn” with food spilling out the side.

AVI-SPL’s contribution to the cause went beyond creating an exhibit. Besides the team’s $3,800 fundraised donation, our Chicago office developed the technology that CANstruction used to capture the votes for the crowd favorite. This AMX MXT-1900-PAN touch panel allowed visitors to view images, uncover details about each display and submit their names and email addresses to vote for their favorite.

Check out this video to see the touch panel in action!

Once all the votes were cast, CANstruction hosted the A-can-emy Awards Gala to recognize the year’s most creative structures. AVI-SPL’s sculpture was acknowledged by the event’s biggest sponsor, taking home the Whole Foods Market Chicago Award.

Congratulations Team AVI-SPL! We’re so proud of everyone’s hard work for this wonderful cause!
