Great Things Happen at Blue Hills

Construction Technology by Mr. Foley

For the past couple of weeks a small group of Construction Technology students learned about the removal of a failing load carrying beam. This beam was supposed to carry the load that was being placed upon it for the second floor addition they are constructing for the home owner.

Students learned about paint loads and the transference of the loads carried down to the basement floor. The students use current technology by installing laminated veneered lumber that were designed by a structural engineer for the new beam posts and installed them using impact drivers and threaded fasteners.
