What I learned at Garco Construction was that architects help design buildings for businesses, schools and other things like the Spokane Arena. I learned that nothing is cheap. Did you know that high schools could cost up to $50 million?? I also learned that there are old and new ways to design buildings. If you design a building the old way you do a scaled drawing. But, if you do it the new way you can actually take a picture of the land you want to build on, and then computer generate a building on the actual picture of the land. It was very interesting. That is what I learned.
