David Weekly Homes of Ponte Vedra
David Weekley Homes of Ponte Vedra welcomed Middleburg High School Design Build Academy students to experience a day in the life of a residential home builder. Students were able to visit the site of $1.5 million dollar model home as well as the David Weekley Design Center. Thrilled to put what they have learned in the classroom to work, students were able to witness the progression from in-depth blueprints to the detailed design of every square foot of a home. Discussions led by the Design Consultant elevated the students’ thinking processes from a hypothetical structure created in the classroom to a studio full of thousands of combinations for interior and exterior design options. In addition to the tour, students were able to interview professionals in different occupational roles within the field, such as sales and design consultants. Electricity, construction, drafting, and interior design students were able to see where their course of study can take them. Job shadows are of crucial importance to students in the Design Build Academy and this on-site field trip will benefit these students for years to come. Thanks to the wonderful staff in Ponte Vedra, David Weekley Homes not only builds houses, but builds the futures of Middleburg High School students.
