Building Construction Technology AAS
If you enjoy creating a structure from the ground up, you may want to consider a certificate or degree in Building Construction. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, "there were approximately 818,000 construction establishments in the United States in 2004: 247,000 were building construction contractors; 57,000 were heavy and civil engineering construction or highway contractors; and 514,000 were specialty trade contractors."
Anticipated growth in business investment for new factories, office buildings, stores, hotels, power plants, colleges and public schools, and other structures should continue to stimulate the demand for workers in the building construction field.
Maintenance and repair work on all types of structures will also contribute to this demand.
Workers in the fields build, repair and modernize all types of buildings, including homes, offices and commercial structures.
