What do I need to know on the construction crew?

No construction experience is necessary to participate in the trip.  We have experienced personnel to teach novices. We have safety plans in place and experienced local construction personnel who work alongside us. Much of our construction is outside and it will be very warm. We encourage drinking plenty of water often.

If you do plan to work in construction, note the following sections.

Required Items:

  • hardhat
  • safety glasses
  • leather work gloves
  • long pants / jeans
  • long sleeve shirt
  • sturdy footwear (tough-sole or steeltoe shoes; no sneakers)
  • reusable water bottle
  • sunscreen

Optional Items:

  • dust mask
  • bandanna for dust and sweat
  • floppy hat against sun

Personal Tools List (optional, but very good to have for each costruction person):

  • Tool Belt
  • Framing Hammer
  • Razor Knife, Extra Blades
  • Tape Measure
  • Pencils
  • Cordless Screwdriver / Impact drill & batteries

MARK ALL YOUR ITEMS SO THEY ARE EASY TO IDENTIFY.
