Students get a behind-the-scenes look at Parade of Homes
Construction students from our Thompson Road and Cortlandville campuses received a "contractor view" of the 2019 Parade of Homes in Clay. While there, they inspected the latest construction techniques, materials, and trends incorporated into the parade's new development, dubbed the “Wildflower” neighborhood. Construction company executives such as Joe Grosso of JMG Custom Homes shared details of current employment opportunities and how young people seeking to enter the home-building business can best prepare for that future.
In the photo, students David Hildreth and Dylan Williams, both of Baldwinsville, examine a roof truss feature for one of the homes. The technique was similar to one they practiced on a house they are building in instructor Mike Cavender's construction class at the Thompson Road Campus.
