The Adams 12 Future Forward Washington Square school found a heartfelt way to show their gratitude for our work at their school and for the $15,000 we donated to support the welding program.
In the school’s recently constructed welding shop, Principal Marvin Lewis and the welding program’s students and instructor presented a plaque of appreciation to U.S. Engineering and Local 208. The plaque was a welded and laser-cut steel frame that contained three pictures of students inside the Welding shop. The students and instructor crafted the plaque, and the school took photos of the students to be held inside the plaque’s frame.
Future Forward at Washington Square in Thornton, Colorado, opened to students in October 2020 and is the Adams 12 School District’s second career and technical education (CTE) school. Classes in this new facility include Diesel, Construction, Welding, Forensics, EMT and Fire Science. The school houses three large shops: Welding, Construction and Diesel. The Welding shop features 26 welding booths with gas mixers and an automated specialty exhaust system. The Construction shop also contains a specialty exhaust system, and the Diesel shop has a Carmon exhaust system, each installed by U.S. Engineering.
U.S. Engineering’s scope included water-source heat pumps fed by a geothermal field, water-to-air heat pumps to heat and cool spaces and water-to-water heat pumps that feed the radiant floor systems in the welding shops.
Congratulations to the school district and its instructors and students on the new facility, and thank you for the meaningful recognition and gift!
