Build My Futures

Posted By Sapp Design – Apr 17 | 2019

Educating the next generation about the AEC industry is something our team is proud to be a part of! This year at the 2019 Build My Futures event Sapp Design gave area High School students the chance to test drive the latest technology tools used in our industry.

Our team shared how we have been using Virtual Reality to communicate design and scale to achieve better input from clients.

Build My Future began as a side conversation between MoDOT and staff at the Ozark Region Workforce Development Board after a Construction Roundtable Discussion. MoDOT mentioned there was an event in another area that focused on high school students and offered hands experiences. The Construction and Trades Industry has struggled to find ways to allow youth to “test drive” careers as they can with many other industries.
