The annual ACE Mentor Banquet is just one week away here in Nashville.
Joey Hatch of Skanska, one of the founders of ACE Mentor in Nashville, will be our keynote speaker.
This event brings together all 9 of the teams we support here in the Nashville and Middle Tennessee area, including students from Davidson, Rutherford and Williamson counties.
After a very informal but informative presentation by Jud Adams (President of Power Management) the students were rotated through electrical, plumbing and mechanical engineering exercises where the sized air duct, researched code on required number of plumbing fixtures and designed electrical circuits for an actual office building.
We would like to encourage all current ACE students or those interested in Architecture, Engineering or Construction as a career to take advantage of a free architecture tour of the Frist Center for the Visual Arts on Saturday, February 7th at 4:30pm. The tour is sponsored by the Frist Center and is a great way to get a “behind-the-scenes” tour of the architecture of one of Nashville’s great landmarks as the building is the former main post office constructed between 1933 and 1934. http://fristcenter.org/calendar-exhibitions/detail/architecture-tour or @FristCenter on Twitter
