Building Construction Cluster

Building Construction Cluster


I am Cragg Clark

Building Construction Cluster instructor at ACE

I held a general contractor’s license for 26 years before retiring and moving to South Carolina.

My company was involved in residential construction, renovations, light commercial work and historical preservation work. I also had a workshop where we did custom cabinetry and fine woodworking.

I am a master carpenter and continue to take artisan classes in cabinetry and furniture making. In the fall of 2015 I will be finishing my college education in CAD/Drafting. I also have an NCCER certification in South Carolina

Building Construction Cluster students receive instruction in multiple aspects of construction. Instruction includes use of power tools, hand tools, and different materials used in the building industry. Blueprint reading and site/distance surveying are also taught. Students receive instruction in masonry, carpentry, surveying, plumbing and electricity. Students gain the skills and knowledge required for employment in the construction industry or to continue with post-secondary education.
