Construction & Architecture IICL100022
Credits: BUHS 12, Sending Schools 3
Duration: Full Year
Construction and architecture comprise one of the largest industries in the United States. The Construction Architecture Level 2 program is designed to build on students’ knowledge of safety, fundamentals, and understanding of the basics of the building and architecture trades. Students will practice and improve proper measurement, accurate assembly, applications of mathematical concepts, material estimating procedures, and safe work practices. Upon completion of the level 2 program, proficient students will demonstrate knowledge and skill in framing, building science, and understanding blueprints. Students will learn and practice how to frame floors, walls, ceilings, roofs, and stairs while safely employing tools used in the trade. Students may be exposed to Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) software to create plans and three-dimensional drawing using industry standard dimensioning and notation, and connect their drawing layouts to actual models, components, and possibly buildings. Students will visit local job sites to see the industry in action. Local industry will also be joining the classroom for presentations and observations. Second-year students will have the opportunity for work-based learning, with the potential to turn into full-time employment. Students will develop a photo and electronic portfolio. They will have the opportunity to earn industry-recognized credentials (IRCs) applicable to construction and architecture.Students will also be encouraged to join SkillsUSA, and Better Building by Design.
