Pacific Coast Building Products University
In partnership with Pacific Coast Building Products (PCBP), AGC Construction Education Foundation (AGC CEF) both hosted the first Pacific Coast Building Products University 3-day training event for 30 AGC Student Chapters and local CLC members throughout the state.
The event included a tour of the Golden 1 Center and networking event with local AGC of CA Members on the first day. Then the second day the students heard from a leadership panel that included Tom Holman, AGC of California, John Stump, Flint Builders and Clint Myers, Myers & Sons Construction, LP they discussed management skills, challenging projects, and shared advice with the group. Then the students participated in the Basalite Concrete College in Dixon where they toured the concrete plant and participated in hands on training within the realm of concrete. That evening they heard from Myers & Sons Construction, LP who presented on their “Fix 50” Project. The third day the students participated in the Alcal Specialty College in Livermore where they learned about roofing and water proofing and participated in a bocce tournament with Alcal employees. That evening they heard from Royal Electric who presented on their “San Francisco International Airport RSA Program” and “Stockton Altamont Commuter Express (ACE)” projects.
This effort was set forth to blend the student’s academic experience with practical real-world experience. Through the partnership, the students will had the opportunity to participate in hands on training within the realm of concrete masonry and roofing and waterproofing. A post survey was conducted to get feedback from the participants for future events and received 76% of the participant feedback.
