Look around, Carpenters are responsible for creating every building around you.
Carpenters take an Architect’s blueprints and bring them to life by working with wood, metal, plastics,
and many other engineered materials in a fast pace setting. From the hole in the ground to the turn of
the key, carpenters are involved every step of the way.
Pile drivers drive steel, concrete, or wood piling into the earth during the early stages of construction. Skill is crucial to both a project’s success and the safety of workers, since the piling is necessary to hold back the earth during excavations; to set up the foundation of skyscrapers, highways, and bridges; and to build docks and wharfs.
If you like working with machines, tools, and precision instruments and have an eye for the
perfect fit, you might consider being a millwright. Millwrights install, maintain, diagnose, and repair the
machines that keep America running such as compressors, pumps, conveyors, monorails, extruders,
turbines, and mining equipment.
