Managed Solution, a highly honored and tenured managed services company and pioneer in managed, utility-based cloud computing, is a gold level sponsor for Canstruction 2015, an annual fundraising event where teams of architects, engineers, contractors, designers and students compete in a competition to design and build structures made entirely from canned foods. Canstruction Orange County combines the fun of a design/build competition with an ingenious way to help end hunger with the Orange County Food Bank. Managed Solution is supporting their customer R.D. Olson Construction Group, a nationwide general contracting and construction management firm, in their pledge to raise over 9,000 cans to “Fight Hunger Today for Generations of Tomorrow.”
R.D. Olson teamed up with WATG to design a structure that will be made entirely out of canned foods, with more than 8000 cans to be exact. The structure is estimated to weigh more than 2500lbs and is a vast 10ft in height, depth and width. You can view a photo of their design below.
The sculptures will be on display through the month of September at South Coast Plaza in Orange County. At the conclusion of CANstruction OC on September 27th, all canned food items will be given to the Orange County Food Bank. The OC Food Bank services over 400 local charities, soup kitchens, low-income families & individuals, Food Stamp Outreach & Farm 2 Kids and is able to distribute nearly 20 million pounds of food annually.
“We are happy to support our clients charitable causes and provide resources for engagement and creativity to put an end to hunger,” says Ryan Ferrel, vice president of sales at Managed Solution. “We can do so much more for our community when we partner together and spread awareness for important causes like this.” Managed Solution believes in building meaningful partnerships that spark a positive impact to support local communities.
