Building trades students from Plymouth Regional High School, along with teachers Rick Doell and Aaron Townshend, toured the Langdon Woods construction site at Plymouth State University last Wednesday. The students met with project superintendent Kermit Chamberlin, site safety officer Bob Bresnahan and construction clerk of the works Nick Luhtala.
“The main focus of the tour was to expose the class to construction techniques of a large commercial construction project,” said Luhtala. Students also got a chance to witness some of the “green building” techniques used in the project. Langdon Woods is eligible for silver-level certification in the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEEDS program. LEEDS is an acronym for Leadership–Energy–Environmental–Design.
