This program prepares students in all phases of building construction including layout of the site, footing and foundation construction, framing systems, exterior finishes, insulation, drywall, finish carpentry and cabinet installations, all with emphasis on residential home construction. Students also learn the proper use of hand and power tools, construction materials, estimating, blueprint reading, and construction safety. A full-scale student-built house is constructed each year as a project where advanced level students bring all their skills together as a culminating activity. Students will work in teams and under a variety of real occupational conditions. Clustered learning experiences are offered in collaboration with the Building Trades Occupations, Computerized Drafting & Engineering Graphics, Electrical & Network Cabling, HVAC/Plumbing, and Practical Environmental Landscaping pathways as part of the Architecture & Construction career cluster. Students completing this program will be prepared to begin entry-level employment in construction carpentry and related trade areas. Students will also have the technical skills to pursue an associate or baccalaureate degree in construction-related fields such as construction technology.
