W.E. O’Neil Fights Hunger Chicago-Style

17 August 2017

W.E. O’Neil teamed up once again with OKW Architects and RTM Engineering Consultants in Canstruction Chicago’s annual fundraiser last week benefiting the Greater Chicago Food Depository at the Chicago Merchandise Mart. Our team spent months planning, designing, collecting donations and purchasing 7,395 cans of food to Fight Hunger Chicago-Style by building a 10-foot tall Chicago-style hot dog, along with fries and a shake.

This design-build competition’s build night kicked off at 6 PM and took many hours, with some teams working on their structures until 2 or 3 AM. With thoughtful planning, organization and leg work up-front, our team was able to complete our Chicago-style structure in a quick 5.5 hours!

Stop by the Merchandise Mart over the next month to see all 24 teams’ structures on display.
