CEM program tours RK Mechanical and VA hospital

IMG_0894On 15 April, the CEM program spent the day in the field, taking 38 students and five faculty/staff to two educational locations.  First we toured RK Mechanical contractor’s fabrication facility in Henderson, CO.  The tour included an overview on how the company uses state-of-the-art technology to improve quality and efficiency through manufacture of construction components in a controlled facility. We also toured the facility and RK Mechanical provided lunch and hardhats for everyone.

The second part of the day was spent at the new VA hospital project touring the huge, complex facility.  The students appreciated the real world exposure to the life cycle of a construction project from drawings to installation to operation.
