Construction instruction

ZCHS students in Jason Donkersloot’s Civil Engineering and Architecture class recently had an opportunity to visit a Habitat for Humanity house currently under construction. The trip was taken to give the students an idea of the size and type of build that a Habitat for Humanity house is. They are beginning their residential construction unit where students learn about the construction process and also design an affordable house. The students will learn about designing for a client, foundations, site planning, framing, electrical and water, and sustainable/green construction. Shown in the photo are Civil Engineering and Architecture students on the front porch of the Habitat for Humanity house. They are, from left, Clinton Stockton, Ian McBride, David Petersen, Daniel McFarland, Brian Behrens, Panashe Bonongwe, Nic Smith, Zach Goebel, Alex Lam, Wade Robbins, Davis Moore, Gavin Shaw, Luke Stalbaum, and teacher Jason Donkersloot.
