Many high schools offer to their students Vocational Education classes. In the case of Logan Elm High School of Circleville, Ohio – instructor Gary Mitchel’s vocational industrial maintenance class builds pole barns.
Mitchel’s students have now completed ten pole buildings for local residents over the past five and a half years.

Generally these projects are structured so the building owner purchases the materials and the high school students do the assembly, including (in some cases) pouring concrete slab floors.
With a dearth of qualified construction workers in the United States, programs such as these expose students to careers which they otherwise may not have considered.
Hansen Pole Buildings is a strong supporter of high school programs such as those of Logan Elm High School. For building owners who are involved in student constructed pole buildings, we offer a 10% discount off our already competitive pricing.
Building owners can get completely customized buildings, which exactly fit their needs. Their budgets are helped out by the material discounts as well as the volunteer student labor.
For instructors and students – they receive complete full sized 24” x 36” blue prints which detail every component on the buildings and are suitable for the acquisition of Building Permits. Examples of what is covered by the plans can be viewed at: https://www.hansenpolebuildings.com/sample-building-plans/.
Of special interest is the Hansen Pole Buildings Construction Manual. This guide allows instructors to walk their students step-by-step through every part of the pole building construction process – from dirt to done. Chapters are laid out in the order of construction and include written instructions, diagrams and actual photos.
Instructors – please contact a Hansen Pole Buildings’ Designer, who can work with your potential building owner through the design process. Make certain to provide your information, so the purchaser can take advantage of the available discount.
In the need of a constructed pole building at a great price?
See if your high school has a Vocational Ed program which might be interested in a project – you can both save money and help in the education of the builders of tomorrow.
