Canstruction® is a global build competition to construct fantastic, giant sized, structures made entirely out of canned food. Cans from the structures are then donated to a community agency that provide food assistance to people in need.

Canstruction® Mackay 2014 was hosted by Engineers Australia Mackay Regional Group during Australian Engineering Week 2014, August 9 – 10. The event was held at the Mackay Entertainment & Convention Centre.

Canstruction is an opportunity to showcase the design and construction talents of organisations and highlight the engineering industry to the community.

The Mackay Regional Group will be donating the cans used for construction of the structures to Aussie Helpers.
