Construction is the foundation of everything we do
The things you build matter to the people that live, work, and play there. It’s extremely satisfying to see a project from start to finish, especially when it improves your community.
“To be able to participate from start to finish, and to see the before and after, is why I love to build and connect things.“
“I love the idea that everything you do in this field is trying to help better the world and connect it together.”
“When I was a little girl, I enjoyed playing with Legos, digging in the dirt, and dreaming up amazing, if only slightly impractical, inventions. Now that I am grown, I still enjoy those same things, but I have also increased my capability and passion for creating and implementing new ideas and designs.”

Be in Demand
Construction companies compete for skilled workers to fill an unprecedented labor shortage
There has never been a better time to work in construction.
As the older generation retires there is a great need for highly skilled workers to fill the void.
“There will be 68 percent more job openings in infrastructure-related fields in the next five years than there are people training to fill them.”
New skills are required for technology used in construction today.
You can gain skills that will guarantee that you will always be in high demand and have job security.
“I feel like the future depends on the construction related industries, and while these industries may not take center stage, they make sure that the stage is built so the play can continue.”
