Field Trip to Garco

Clay Conrad, lead architect at Garco Contruction, teaching students about the profession

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.
