Valencia High School Building Industry Technology Academy Wins Top Award at Local Design-Build Competition

BITA students.

Each year, Valencia High School’s Residential and Commercial Construction (BITA) Pathway students eagerly participate in the Design-Build Competition held at Golden West College in Huntington Beach.

BITA stands for Building Industry Technology Academy, a specialized program offered through North Orange County Regional Occupational Program (ROP) designed to equip high school students with practical skills and knowledge in residential and commercial construction trades. The program blends classroom instruction with hands-on training, preparing students for rewarding careers in the construction industry.

The Design-Build Competition, held April 10-11, 2024, is a thrilling event where students collaborate in teams to create and construct projects within a specific time and build constraints. According to ROP, this competition revolves around “design-build,” an innovative project delivery method integrating design and construction phases into a single contract. The design and construction teams work closely together from the project’s inception, mirroring real-world industry practices.

Congratulations are in order for Roy Morrison and his students from Valencia High School for their outstanding achievement in winning “best overall craftsmanship” in the shed category at the competition. The Tigers demonstrated the spirit of teamwork, ingenuity, and professionalism that characterizes the construction industry’s future leaders.
