CAMPBELL RIVER, B.C – Bids are now open for the next NIC Great Shed Auction in Campbell River and the Comox Valley.

In Campbell, North Island College students collaborated with School District 72 students to build three sheds last year as part of an Industry Training Authority sponsored Trades Sampler program. The pilot program provided Grade 11 and 12 students “an opportunity to explore trades programming as they consider their career options.”

Carpentry Foundation students from NIC in the Comox Valley also built two sheds that are up for auction.   

Each shed is six feet wide, eight feet long and nine feet, two inches high. It weighs approximately 1,000 lbs. Each features a window, workbench, double doors, a wired light socket and electrical outlet.

The starting bid for each shed is $1,000. The winning bidder will be responsible for arranging delivery.

NIC will update the bids once a week at www.nic.bc.ca. The auction closes on Oct. 5, 2018 at 4 pm.
