Held annually in October, Construction Week is a celebration of those in the commercial construction industry. During this week, construction companies, service providers, and associations recognize the hard work of those individuals who help create our built environment. This recognition takes many forms, including highlighting workers, distributing appreciation gifts, hosting company outings, and more. By demonstrating appreciation for industry colleagues, we simultaneously increase the visibility of the construction industry in our communities.
Many construction firms also use this time to promote the industry as a safe, exciting, and rewarding career option. Shifting the public’s perception of careers in construction is critical to filling the labor shortage our industry is experiencing. Through job site visits, career days, speaking opportunities, and more, many of our members celebrate this week by bringing construction careers to life for students, educators, and parents.
