Construction positively affects the lives of every American. The buildings in which we work, play, and live; the cell phone towers that power our connectivity; and the roads and bridges that enable us to get to our destinations all depend on the development and empowerment of the construction industry workforce.
Construction Appreciation Week will be celebrated September 16-20, 2019, 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.
Founded in 2018, Construction Appreciation Week brings together the entire industry, regardless of company size or specialty, and shows appreciation for the work that they do every day. It touches people at all levels, from students thinking about joining the industry to current professionals to company leadership.
Construction Appreciation Week is sponsored by I Build America, a national movement focused on building pride in the construction industry, educating the public on the value of construction, and recruiting the next generation of construction professionals. I Build America was founded in 2016 by HCSS CEO Mike Rydin to tell the story of American construction workers.
