  • LEMARTEC ARCHITECTURE AND CONSTRUCTION STUDENT MENTORING PROGRAM AT LANIER JAMES!

    The program is going strong and we have completed our seventh class.  Since our last update the students have continued to learn and “see” the construction process in action.  
     
    Last week the students learned about the different structural systems with a particular focus on “TILT UP”.  They were able to see and learn how panels are prepared, reinforced, and poured.  They are eager to see them lifted in the coming weeks.
     
    The hands on approach to learning is making the class more popular and we recently welcomed 6 NEW STUDENTS TO THE PROGRAM!!!  They are all looking forward to learning about architecture and construction while watching it happen before their very eyes!!
     
    WHAT AN INCREDIBLE PROGRAM!!!!
