Construction, Maintenance & Utilities Department
Mission Statement: In support of the college mission and to assist in its implementation the Construction, Maintenance & Utilities department’s faculty and staff are committed to the development, continual improvement and professional delivery of the most current industry relevant training, including sustainable construction techniques and other green technologies, for our students to equip themselves with the necessary knowledge and skill sets to obtain, sustain, or advance in their chosen career paths.
LATTC students from the Construction, Maintenance & Utilities Department were spectacular at the Metropolitan Water District’s Green Expo last week. They took first place in the Water Conservation competition and beat out several other schools (including a graduate program at UC Santa Barbara) to win the top spot. That is quite an accomplishment.
This outstanding effort was led by one of our students, Mohammed Macaulay. The project is going to be showcased on the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California’s website. CDMU instructors stated that this was a “truly interdisciplinary project, the house structure was originally designed by our architecture dept. staff and students, engineered and built by our night carpentry program. For this effort it was re-engineered and rebuilt to by the contest team specs with support from our 3rd semester carpentry program students.”
