Building Construction



Instructor: Mr. Larry Frank


Building Construction students will gain experiences in all phases of residential and commercial construction. The composition of the program is approximately 15% theory and 85% performance. Your work will be rated on how you performed the work: Did you work safely? Did you use proper tools? Did you work efficiently? Did you work accurately? Did you work in sequential order? The finished product is also evaluated. Is it the correct length, height, and width? Are the cuts square? Is it level? Is the work neat in appearance?

After successful completion of the safety test, the student will begin the fundamental competencies of using hand tools and portable electric tools.
