HED builds sandcastles for charity in San Francisco

On October 10, architects, engineers, and elementary school students gathered at San Francisco's Ocean Beach for the 32nd Annual Sandcastle Contest. Organized by the nonprofit Leap Arts in Education, which provides arts education to elementary and middle schools across the San Francisco Bay Area, the event facilitates collaboration between the AEC industry and local elementary schools.

Harley Ellis Devereaux (HED) was part of the HED + AEI + XL Construction team that included staff from HED, XL Construction, AEI Engineers and Dianne Feinstein Elementary.
