Students go face-to-face with bricks and steel

Giving students an up-close opportunity to experience the materials that they will need in their professions, John Neary, assistant professor in the School of Architecture and Construction Management, is coordinating the construction on an 8-foot tall, steel, teaching structure behind Carpenter Hall. The American Institute of Steel Construction provided the design.

The steel structure, along with a brick laying exercise done last month gives professors the opportunity to illustrate connections and structures that have been discussed in class but not often seen up-close.

The foundation for the steel structure, built partly by Professor Ken Carper and his structures students is located in the courtyard between Carpenter Hal and the Daggy parking area. Among those who are donating their time or materials for the project are Metals Fabrication Co., Baugh Skanska Inc., Brooklyn Ironworks, American Ironworks & Erectors, Inc., Shea Graham Construction, Motley & Motley, and WSU Capital Planning and Development.
