Ensuring College & Career Readiness

Construction Trades I & II

Construction students gain familiarity with all aspects of building of a single-family residence. Through classroom instruction and laboratory experience, students acquire hands-on training in estimating, layout, footing and foundation, platform construction, framing, roofing, sidings, insulation, exterior finish, window and door installation, and stair building. Students also learn to construct brick and block walls; identify and mix mortar; mix and finish concrete.  During each school year, students construct one home in Prosser’s Builders’ Ridge subdivision to be sold on the open real estate market.
