Meridian First Light House competition begins!

After nearly two years in the planning, the day is finally here. In just a few hours the team from the Meridian First Light house will begin to construct their house in Washington DC.

The whole team has now arrived in the USA, recovered from jet lag and are ready to start the competition. Yesterday the full team had a day on site at the crane yard getting everything ready to be taken to the competition site at West Potomac Park.

Assembly kicks off tonight at 11pm. Major planning has been completed so there are two main groups who will work a shift each, working around the clock for six and a half days.

LEAP is so excited for the team and wishes them all the best for construction! For more updates you can follow the team on their website or on facebook.
