The ongoing labor shortage and queries from around the country led the Colorado Homebuilding Academy to look into franchising its model.
The academy was the first organization to sign an agreement with Franchise For Good, the newly formed nonprofit arm of Franworth. The Michigan-based company works with businesses that want to establish or expand a franchise.
More than 220 people went through the homebuilding academy’s “boot camp” last year. People can also take basic courses in concrete and electrical construction. The academy partners with the Community College of Aurora on a management program that offers certificates in being a construction superintendent and construction estimating.
“We’ve thought more about how we can expand nationally because the need across the country hasn’t diminished at all,” said Damon DiFabio, director of the home-building academy.
