Construction Career Days
Save the Dates for the 2012 Construction Career Days:
September 25 & 26th, 2012
Adams County Fairgrounds
8:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Over 1,600 students participated in the 2011 Colorado Construction Career Days. Attend in 2010. School and Volunteer Registration is available in August 2012.
The event is designed to show students the many facets of building and highway construction and help them decide if this is the industry for them. Architects, engineers, builders and tradesmen will provide hands-on activities to pique the students’ interest. (Imagine if you got to ride a scissor lift or operate a backhoe when you were 17!). In 2009, the Energy sector was added to the event as energy and sustainability are commanding more attention in construction.
The planning committee includes over thirty businesses, associations, and government agencies – general contractors, architects, engineering companies, landscaping contractors, specialty contractors, suppliers, and safety professionals – as well as school district representatives and community colleges. This is an industry wide event to promote construction as a career choice.
