O&G Builds

O&G Builds the nine-month long experiential learning program in which high school students earn credits while learning hands-on about careers in construction.  As a part of the program, students get a behind the scenes look into the construction of their school, while engaging in interactive lectures from the project management team, design team and trade contractors as the project moves through the final phases of construction.

During the nine-month O&G Builds program, students meet monthly to learn about construction management, architecture, engineering, masonry, heating, ventilation & air conditioning (HVAC), site work, electrical, plumbing, sheet metal, steel erection and safety.

The O&G Builds program has been recognized with the Connecticut Construction Industries Association (CCIA) Community Service Award in 2014 and the Midstate Chamber of Commerce Recognition for Business & Education Excellence in 2015.
