Alvin H. Butz, Inc. Completes Renovations to Carpenters Apprentice School

Allentown, PA, September 8, 2016 . . . Alvin H. Butz Inc., part of The Butz Family of Companies, recently completed renovations to the Carpenters Apprentice School of Philadelphia and Vicinity in Allentown, PA. Butz teamed with Roberson Butz Architects to also provide design and engineering services on the project.

The Carpenters Apprentice School is led by the Carpenters Joint Apprentice Committee, which exists to provide first class quality training to members and contractors associated with the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters.

"We're glad we selected Butz to work with us on this project," said Charles Brock, Director of the Carpenters Joint Apprenticeship Committee of Philadelphia and Vicinity. "We really appreciated the service and personal attention of the Butz team throughout construction and are extremely satisfied with the outcome."

The 36,756 square foot facility is used to train carpenters in an apprenticeship program as well as continuing education for journey trades people in many areas, including rigging, signaling, scaffolding, first aid and safety. This location is more convenient to access for workers located in the Lehigh Valley and north of Philadelphia. Currently, all training takes place in the Philadelphia facility.

The training center has a large open shop area for teaching construction along with block-constructed booths for welding training.

Additional renovations included:

  • 2 large classrooms
  • 5 offices
  • Conference and team meeting rooms
  • Updated bathrooms and shower to meet ADA requirements
  • Window replacement
  • New entry canopy and storefront doors
  • Parking lot repairs and roof drain piping
  • New landscaping

"We were proud to work with the Carpenters Joint Apprenticeship Committee and join their mission to promote quality training and educational growth in the construction industry," says Greg Butz, President and CEO of Alvin H. Butz, Inc. "Educating and training our future workforce is of utmost importance."
