NEF CAD Drafting Competition

2015-2016 CAD Drafting Winner Jeffrey Hackett 

wins Southeast Region AND 3rd in the Nation!

The CAD/Design/Drafting Competition is a contest designed for senior high students. The contest provides recognition to students for creative design, successful problem solving and craftsmanship in preparing architectural drawings. Entries are evaluated for detail, accuracy and originality of work. Objectives of the contest are to introduce the student to the construction industry in a positive and challenging manner, while fostering a sense of selfworth and building confidence. Mentoring programs between students and educators are also encouraged. Each local sponsor is furnished with a "Design Problem" that is designed by a licensed Architect or Engineer and is generic enough to meet the needs of all areas of the US and our international affiliates. Project drawings must include a minimum: a floor plan, exterior elevation and site plan and placement of structure. National winners receive prizes.

2016-2017 DESIGN PROBLEM-FAMILY DENTISTRY CLINIC: The design problem is a new free-standing building that will be home to a dental clinic for Dr. R. Canal and Dr. X. Ray. The doctors (your clients) have provided you with a Site Plan (included in this packet) and 
specific program requirements. However, they are counting on your creativity to provide them with a functional and eye appealing design as well as a professional set of working drawings. Click on
