Humboldt Sawmill Sponsors Design Build Course

Architecture students at Cal Poly State University build with donated redwood lumber

SANTA ROSA, Calif., May 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Humboldt Sawmill has once again sponsored the Design Build course at Cal Poly State University in San Luis Obispo, California. Instructed by Professor Dale Clifford in the College of Architecture and Environmental Design, the course offers students valuable hands-on experience.

"Often students in the class have no previous construction experience. Coming to design consensus and building something at full-scale builds competence and confidence in each student. Students and faculty learn conflict resolution, empathy, and that they can accomplish more together than individually," states Professor Clifford.

Humboldt Sawmill donated redwood dimensional lumber for the primary course project, a prototype outdoor classroom that will be exhibited on-campus and later donated to a local elementary school.

Previously, Humboldt Sawmill donated redwood to the Poly Canyon and Camp Natoma student-led projects in the Design Build course instructed by Professor Clifford, as well as for Cal Poly's entry into the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon in 2015 led by Professor Sandy Stannard. The "INhouse" featured a redwood shade screen that was both beautiful and functional in helping keep the structure cool.

Incorporating real-world materials, such as redwood, in design-build applications is important for students in architecture, engineering, and construction management.

"Our college considers hands-on construction a valuable part of the learning process that engenders team-building skills and helps prepare students to creatively contribute to the built environment," states Professor Clifford.
