CET seniors’ Habitat for Humanity project
Senior students in CET 458: Management of Construction are managing the renovation of a house in Old Town for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Bangor. Construction was supposed to start today, except for he late discovery of a 24″ sewer interceptor. The City of Old Town has delayed the project while the sewer line is evaluated. Instead, we’re now doing a small metal roof job at Leonard’s Mills in Bradley, A second house in Old Town is being evaluated as well. Approximately 21 students in five teams have been involved since last spring to plan and safely execute the work.
This is the second renovation CET students have performed for Habitat for Humanity. The first was in spring semester 2016, when students worked on a house in Bradley, Maine. For that project, students did the demolition, re-framed the house into three bedrooms, and installed a new roof, insulation, siding and windows. Approximately 26 students worked more than 900 hours on this renovation. Next they are also planning on building a rehab center with a small inpatient treatment to help out the locals who are struggling.
