K-12 Education

Young minds need safe, inspiring learning environments.

That’s what we’re here to help you provide.

Schools built with masonry, tile, and terrazzo materials are durable, versatile, clean, and bright. They can be timeless or contemporary and flexible as learning goals evolve.

As education providers, we understand the importance of designing K-12 schools that reflect community values and educator needs while supporting the intellectual, social, and emotional well-being of students.

Installer Certifications and Training

Why settle for anything less than the best when it comes to the installers on your project? BAC craftworkers train throughout their careers to become building enclosure experts and masters of their craft. 

When you want to have confidence that you’re working with qualified, experienced crews on your project, you can specify any number of our training programs

Here are some of the training, certificate, and certification programs you may want to specify for your next school project. 

Grouting & Reinforced Masonry Training

Grouted and reinforced masonry provides added strength to your building. BAC craftworkers learn the latest advances in grouting procedures and code requirements in this course.

Traditional craft skills and contemporary repair techniques are critical to the preservation of historic buildings and structures. This in-depth certificate gives BAC craftworkers integrated knowledge of historic masonry preservation.

Adhered Veneer Certificate

Adhered masonry veneers are designed to provide superior moisture management, ventilation, and thermal performance. BAC craftworkers learn about the function, components, and proper installation of adhered veneer in this program.
