On Thursday, November 1, 2018, the students from the Charter High School For Architecture And Design (CHAD)’s Hard Hat Club took a tour of the Vantage Student Living Student Apartments, the View II project near Temple University. Intech Construction is the General Contractor for the project. Students got to see some of the areas where amenities were being placed, such as a golf simulator, and learned about issues in construction such as technical aspects of installing curtain walls and window walls, as well as LEED Certification goals.
Many thanks to INTECH Construction’s Ed Rowe & Kimberly O’Toole for leading the tour!
About the CHAD Hard Hat Club
In 2016 GBCA partnered with the Charter High School for Architecture and Design (CHAD) and created the CHAD Hard Hat Club. This after school club allows students interested in careers in the construction industry direct access to contractors and jobsites in a two-part series: intimate presentations on a specific project and the opportunity to visit that same job site, for a post-presentation, private tour.
