What is Try-A-Build?

Try-A-Build is an opportunity for you (corporate teams, community groups and individuals) to experience Canstruction® Waterloo Region on a smaller, more manageable scale.

Corporate & Community Groups

Looking for a great team building event?

Corporate teams and community groups are invited to Try-A-Build from March 11-15, 2019. Each day, two teams (maximum five people per team) will build this years’ structure – a house – using 400 cans and only 2 hours. While the house design cannot be altered, teams are encouraged to make their house a home by adding fun, personalized elements!

Note: To maintain fairness among all participants, teams are not permitted to bring additional food to include in the Try-A-Build structure.

The Food Bank will provide the cans, space and supplies. You bring the skills, creativity and energy!

Corporate and Community Group Registration

To register your corporate or community group for Try-A-Build, please click here.

Once your registration is received, a team member will contact you to secure payment and confirm your participation details. Thank you for helping to #FeedWR.

Note: Maximum of five team members per team.

What is the cost to participate?

The registration fee is $250.00.

The registration fee is used to offset the cost of food provided for your build but also assists with transportation and operational costs to ensure the food is distributed to those in need of food assistance.

Be a Try-A-Build Champion

Every day we will name a daily Try-A-Build champion. Voting begins immediately following the build and runs for the duration of the day. The build with the most votes – via social media – will be crowned that day’s Try-A-Build champion!

Put your thinking caps on…what kind of house will you build?
