People’s and Judge’s Choice: Two Awards at Gingertown

What is Gingertown?

Each December, Gould Turner Group participates in Gingertown, a one-of-a-kind charity event, in which a themed town is completely constructed of gingerbread and candy. The organizer develops the unique theme which considers principles of urban planning. The event organizers invite fellow architects, engineers, contractors, and their families to participate through sponsorships, donations and creative design. Participants work in teams to construct buildings out of frosting, candy, and of course, gingerbread. 100% of the donations raised during the event go to charities.

The event was created in 2006 as a fun way to engage colleagues in the building design and construction industry, and most importantly, to raise money for local charities. The very first Gingertown in 2006 began with just 15 lots. Participants used every square inch of surface area to build the individual buildings before bringing the town together. Now, over 10 years later, the annual Gingertown event comprises over 55 lots and, most recently in 2017, spanned 84 square feet.
