Associate professor Boyd Johnson was taking a handful of Salt Lake Community College students through the first phases of framing the structure under a blistering summer sun.

Along with Johnson, instructor Chad Fail and some SLCC support staff from the college’s Construction Management program, they surveyed and a…
