Construction Techniques 2 is a lecture/lab class which offers the student insights into the construction process. Students will gain practical experience in principles of construction while wrapping the envelope of a building in a light construction project. Lecture portions of this course will introduce the student to systems, methods and equipment available and commonly used on a light construction project. This is a continuation of Construction Techniques 1. A construction project will be followed from the dry-in stage through completion during class discussions. Lab sessions, field trips and/or practical exercises will allow students to use hand and power tools for carpentry and to practice the skills often required of the small contractor’s labor force. Students will perform activities necessary to install wood siding, soffit, fascia, aluminum windows, pre-hung doors, exterior and interior trim materials and strip shingles on a wood roof deck. Particular emphasis is placed on carpentry and the use of woodworking tools.
