Building Construction in Action

Building Construction

  • Welcome to the Building Construction Academy! 

    Students in the Building Construction pathway learn the foundations of Frame Carpentry. This, combined with hands-on experience, allows students to learn how to stick frame floor systems, wall systems, ceiling and roof systems, along with stair construction. While learning these skills, they learn how to properly use essential construction tools. Upon completion of course, students will receive a National Certificate in Carpentry (NCCER) that is recognized nation wide.
