You are a high school student.  Maybe you are close to graduation.  You are trying to figure out what kind of career you should pick.  You know you need training, but what kind?  Where should you go?  How much does it cost?

The Construct Tomorrow team is thinking about you too.  We are a group of construction trades trainers (skilled teachers that show you how to be an electrician, plumber or carpenter) and contractors (the business that build things).   We want you to think about a career in the construction industry.  We want you to build bridges, roads, stadiums, houses, malls, hospitals and more.  We are looking for people who want to work hard every day and make great money and love what they do.

The Construct Tomorrow Team hosts events to show you all the different types of career training that the Building Trades has to offer.  It’s hard to make a clear decision about a career in the trades by listening to someone talk or reading about it.   Construct Tomorrow events gives you a chance to roll up your sleeves and trowel cement, wire circuits, set tile and more! Learn about the amazing 16 kinds of careers available and the system of apprenticeship training (paid on-the-job-training).

How do you know if a career in the building trades is right for you unless you have a chance to try it out?

Learn about union apprenticeship training programs that pay you to learn a construction career that has a good pay, great benefits, and no expensive college costs.

Improve Prefabrication and Field Productivity with Design Standardization

Design standardization is the ability to systematize the deliverables from the design group in order to increase design throughput, increase field productivity and escalate the volume of prefabrication utilized. This session will outline the steps necessary to properly assess your current operations, define the products of the design group, identify issues that inhibit the design process and craft solutions that will overcome the challenges identified.

Following this course, participants will be able to:

·         Describe the assessment process as it pertains to design
·         Define the customers of the design group and what their expectations are
·         Identify work steps, issues, and solutions for each design process defined
·         Discuss how to prioritize the solutions needed in order to formulate an actionable plan forward

This course will be facilitated by Christine Rahlf with Maxim Consulting.
