Flex-Ability Concepts was recently given the chance to work with the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters Training Center in Elks Grove Village, Illinois. We thought this was a great opportunity, and we enjoyed partnering with them on this project. This project consisted of creating different curved elements for an open house to show case the carpenters skills. The Carpenters Training Center offers carpenters hands-on classroom training with qualified instructors and on-the-job training as part of their apprenticeship program. Every class has the opportunity to work with different products; it helps to prepare students for what the work environment has to challenge them with.
Al Jotautas first saw the family of Flex-Ability Concepts products at an open house that was held at the Carpenters Training Center. He was impressed with what he saw and decided to integrate Flex-C Trac products into one of the classes that the school offers. The Carpenters Training Center recently completed a project on their campus that used approximately 820 feet of Flex-C Trac and Flex-C Angle; creating groin vaults, an inverted dome, and soffits in the in the ceiling of their campus building. “We loved giving the students the opportunity to use our product and be creative with it.” Al said.
The Carpenters Training Centers also offers night and weekend courses so carpenters can be current in their training and understand how to use products, like Flex-C Trac. The course demonstrates some of the different uses for Flex-C Trac in the real world; such as dome, groin vault, serpentine ceilings, radius walls and soffit framing. “We think that continuing education is great and that you can never learn too much” said Rachael Fieldsend of Flex-Ability Concepts.
