Students Tour the Construction at SAHS

Posted on: April 17, 2019

ON FRIDAY, April 12th, HMK Company and Gerding Builders hosted a tour at South Albany High School for three SAHS metals/construction program students and a handful of construction bond overseers and GAPS staff.

The construction companies led the students to the existing structure where the auxiliary gym will be attached, and to the two CTE classrooms being added to what used to be the old auto shop.

One of the students remarked that the loss of the auto shop was unfortunate, because he’d like to go to trade school after high school to become a mechanic, but he was interested in applying what he was learning in class to what was being built with the construction bond funds.

The students, a sophomore, junior, and senior, have interests in construction and manufacturing and take two to three classes a day in the SAHS metals program. As they study framing and welding, their projects include creating high quality sheds and dog houses, which they sell for a great value. On Friday, the project managers for Gerding Builders and HMK Company patiently answered the students’ keen questions and showed them how the projects they were working on in class applied on a greater scale to what the bond was building for the district.

There are many opportunities for GAPS classrooms to explore the relationship with career technical education and our construction bond projects. If that’s something you believe you and your students would find value discovering, please reach out to the district office.

El viernes 12 de abril, las compañías de construcción “HMK Company” y “Gerding Builders” organizaron una visita a la preparatoria South Albany High School (SAHS), para tres estudiantes del programa de metales/construcción de SAHS y algunos de supervisores del bono escolar para la construcción y personal de GAPS.

La compañía HMK condujo a los estudiantes a la estructura existente donde se adjuntaría el gimnasio auxiliar, y a las dos aulas CTE que se agregaron a lo que solía ser el antiguo taller automovilístico.

Uno de los estudiantes comentó que la pérdida del taller de automóviles era desafortunada, porque le gustaría ir a la escuela técnica, después de la escuela preparatoria para convertirse en mecánico, pero estaba interesado en aplicar lo que estaba aprendiendo en clase a lo que se estaba construyendo con los fondos del bono escolar de construcción.

Los estudiantes, un estudiante del 10° grado, uno de 11° grado y otro del 12° grado, tienen intereses en la construcción y manufacturación y toman de dos a tres clases por día en el programa de metales SAHS. A medida que estudian el encuadre y la soldadura, sus proyectos incluyen la creación de cobertizos de alta calidad y casetas para perros, que venden por un buen precio. El viernes, los gerentes de proyecto de “HMK Company”, respondieron pacientemente las preguntas entusiastas de los estudiantes y les mostraron, cómo los proyectos en los que estaban trabajando en clase se aplicaron en mayor escala a lo que “HMK Company” estaba construyendo para el distrito.

Hay muchas oportunidades para que los salones de clases de GAPS, apliquen lo que están aprendiendo en los programas de educación técnica profesional en muchos de nuestros proyectos del bono escolar para la construcción. Si eso es algo que cree que usted y sus estudiantes encontrarán valioso para explorar, comuníquese con la oficina del distrito.

The prep work is nearly done for the major bond-funded construction projects. Planning has included seeking permits, planning for logistics for each site, creating a work timeline and, of course, designing the projects.

Construction work will start as soon as school is out at South Albany High School, West Albany High School, the new elementary school near Timber Ridge, the replacement of Oak Grove Elementary and the middle school vocational/CTE classrooms.

It is an exciting time. We will share more details as the work progresses. Here are design concept videos for each project:
