Theme: We Build America
The construction industry is one of the nation’s largest industries, employing millions of people and contributing significantly to America’s bottom line. And with the need for new schools, hospitals, housing, and other commercial buildings increasing, we are going to need more and more quality workers to get all of the work done.
I Build America – Kentucky is joining I Build America – Ohio on our mission to build the construction workforce and signal to companies, organizations, lawmakers, current employees, and prospective employees that we are devoted to the future of our industry. We are joining together hundreds of employers who represent all aspects of skilled labor and construction work to form one unified voice to share a message: careers in construction offer great opportunities for great people.
Construction Appreciation Week will be celebrated September 11-17, 2022, to acknowledge and thank the more than 11 million hardworking men and women in the industry who contribute to the development of our infrastructure, facilities, products, and services. We are proud of these professionals who are Building America Together.
