BuildingPoint SouthEast Partners with the AGC Build Your Career Program
On April 23rd, BuildingPoint SouthEast’s Ryan Pastor and Scott Mayer had the opportunity to give back to their community by participating in the Carolinas AGC Build Your Career Program where they spoke to students at Forest Hills High School in Marshville, NC to discuss career options in the construction utilizing technology space. They demonstrated the following:
- Virtual Design Construction (VDC)
- Trimble RTS 773 (Robotic Total Station) with T100 Tablet and FieldLink software
- Trimble X7 Laser Scanner
- XR10 Hololens
The Build Your Career Program (BYC) is a construction industry-wide program that is designed to help tackle the biggest challenge in North and South Carolina – the shortage of skilled workforce at a time where there are thousands of well-paying, career opportunities in the construction industry in both states. Their goal is to get more people aware of construction career opportunities by launching education efforts on the middle school and high school levels, as well as in community colleges, and with individuals wanting to change careers.
Carolinas AGC has been meeting with other industry stakeholders to provide a home-grown program that will enhance the entire construction industry, and has sponsored career day events in both North Carolina and South Carolina.
