Students in the Career Academy at Siloam Springs (AR) High School visited the project site where a new campus is being constructed by C.R. Crawford Construction for the Siloam Springs First Assembly of God Church. The student group, and their instructor, Mike Battenfield, were provided with a safety orientation and then an overview of the project. On the day of the site visit, crews were erecting the steel structure of the new worship center and classroom building, providing students with an opportunity to observe cranes lifting steel beams and bar joists into place. The students were also given an opportunity to discuss careers in the construction industry with C.R. Crawford representatives and subcontractors on the site.
A significant milestone in many projects is when the time comes to hoist the last piece of structural steel to the top of a building’s structure.
A “wall-breaking” ceremony was recently held at the Siloam Springs Fire Station No. 2, located in downtown Siloam Springs.
