Orange Coast College Students Talk Construction With DeNova Homes

Orange Coast College is known for their commitment to their surrounding communities. From providing a source of higher education to raising awareness for energy conservation, the facility has dedicated themselves to giving back. As one of the nations top transfer schools, Orange Coast College takes academics seriously. Each program is designed with the continued success of each student in mind, and several hands-on opportunities are offered throughout the course of study to help prepare students for life in their field.


At a recent educational event, Alan Toffoli, Division President for DeNova Homes, spoke to a class of over 40 Orange Coast College students to help support their education and training in architecture. Following the lecture, students were led on an onsite tour of two model homes as well as an active construction site. For more than 25 years, families and homeowners in California have rusted DeNova Homes for their building needs.
