A Sustainable Workforce Starts With You

A Real Rocky Mountain High

According to an article in today’s Denver Post, “The Denver-Aurora-Broomfield metropolitan area added 6,300 construction jobs from February 2011 to February of this year, according to a report released Tuesday by the Associated General Contractors of America.”

That puts the Denver Metro area on top of the list of areas that created new construction jobs in February.  That is good news for skilled construction workers in the Denver area who have had a long cold winter – and I am not talking about the weather.  Several new large projects are creating the need for project superintendents and foreman.

According to the article, “Among those projects are Exempla St. Joseph's Hospital, the Colorado Supreme Court building, the South Terminal at Denver International Airport, RTD rail development, the veterans hospital at Fitzsimons, and other Fitzsimons expansions at Children's Hospital Colorado and University of Colorado Hospital.”

The AGC report tracks construction jobs in 337 metro areas of the United States.  Denver is showing movement just as the construction season arrives in the Rocky Mountains.  At the time when a large number of Metro areas tracked in the report are still looking for their “Construction Spring”, the Denver area numbers are quite encouraging.
