BCT Is Building the Future

It’s not everyday that you get dirty when attending classes at Piedmont Technical College. Unless you are enrolled in the Building Construction Technology program.

Students in the BCT program are not only learning about construction, they are putting it to use. They are building a house.

“It takes a lot of fortitude to go out with $100,000 and a group of students and build a house,” said Bobby Roche, instructor/coordinator for the BCT division.
