Training for Manufactured Construction (TRAMCON) is a program designed to provide a vetted, educated and trained workforce for the manufactured/ modular housing industry. TRAMCON is designed to be delivered by community and state colleges that are typically engaged in workforce training. The consortium is made up of four public Florida colleges; industry associations; Florida CareerSource workforce investment boards; and local employers.

The material was funded in whole by a $9.9M TAACCCT grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration.

Construction Workforce Taskforce has been established via state legislation to address the shortage of skilled craftspeople and inspectors training in Florida. The Taskforce will discuss and recommend methods for craft workers and inspectors in the state of Florida.

The Cotton Club, also known as the Perry Theater, the Blue Note, and the Badcock Furniture Warehouse, was originally a PX at Camp Blanding and was moved to its current location after World War II. The Mt. Olive A.M.E. Church, in partnership with the University of Florida’s Powell Center for Construction & Environment and Historic Preservation Program, are restoring the building for use as a museum, gift shop, and neighborhood center. Historic Preservation coupled with green building guidelines will ensure that this building continues to play a significant role in the East Gainesville Community.
