Construction positively affects the lives of every American. The buildings in which we work, play, and live, as well as the roads and bridges that enable people and goods to get to their destinations, all depend on the development and empowerment of the construction industry workforce.
Construction Appreciation Week is an opportunity to celebrate and show gratitude to the millions of hardworking men and women of American construction. An annual event recognized by the National Day Calendar, this year’s Construction Appreciation Week is planned September 16-20, 2019.
Construction helps provide the water that we drink, the roads that we drive on, the cell phone towers that power our connectivity, and the home our family sleeps in.
It is a vital contributor to economic growth, providing employment opportunities and economic value to the chain of relevant suppliers and service providers. Without construction, we would not enjoy any of these modern comforts and necessities.
That’s why Construction Appreciation Week was founded in 2018, to bring together the entire industry, regardless of company size or specialty, and show appreciation for the work that its employees do every day. It will touch people at all levels, from students thinking about joining the industry to current professionals to company leadership.
Construction professionals, construction company leadership, and those who appreciate the American construction worker are invited to celebrate Construction Appreciation Week by creating, liking, and sharing images, videos, and personal stories on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn and to enter the “Thanks for Building” and “Building America Together” contests. Downloads are available on the Construction Appreciation Week website here.
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.
