Parallel Construction Program, CAPPA

One class within the College of Architecture, Planning and Public Affairs is designing, planning and building a single-family home.

Brad McCorkle is the main instructor leading the Parallel Construction program. The program allows students to have hands on experience from the beginning to the end of an architecture project.

The three-hour class meets several times a week and works together to come up with the best designs for the home.

McCorkle says the home will be built in a neighborhood near the AT&T Stadium.

Housing Channel is the receiving client and will sell the house once completed. The company Fort Worth-based company designs affordable housing for low- to moderate- income families.

Building and finalizations to the plan are scheduled for January.
