The Voice Exhibit showcases the testimonials of BIPOC and queer environmental engineers, activists, and industry professionals and shares the connection between sustainability and identity. The goal of the builder was to utilize a condensed Design Build methodology and project management tools learned throughout his time at Cal Poly in order to deliver a design with a temporary structure for the showcase. Design of the exhibit floor, post + curtain barrier, testimonial displays, and bay door mosaic was done after a meeting by the show runner, architect, and builder was conducted. The barrier and exhibit floor design were created after a site survey utilizing takeoff software and CAED programs. After the design was approved by the show runner, an initial estimate came just under budget. With the use of recycled materials and donations there was a large reduction in the final cost of construction material while maintaining the vision sought by the showrunner. Temporary structures were constructed for the exhibit with easy dismantling in mind as after the event was complete a majority of materials were reused or donated in order to maintain the overall message of sustainability.
