Green Mountain Technology and Career Center

The Construction Technology curriculum provides students with training in all phases of residential construction. Students participate in the construction of a full modular house. Students receive instruction in the safe and proper operation of tools and power equipment, reading construction plans and specifications, and the application of math skills. They also receive practical experience in structural framing techniques, window installation, siding, and roofing.

These skills are utilized as the student progresses through the shell construction of a single family residence, floor framing, wall framing, roof framing and roofing. During the second semester students complete construction of the residence which includes siding, doors, windows, insulation, drywall, interior trim, mechanical system (plumbing) and electrical systems. Estimating and scheduling skills are refined and practiced. An introduction to commercial construction methods and materials completes the experience.
