About Construction Appreciation Week
Launched in 2016 by HCSS CEO Mike Rydin, I Build America is an image-building movement dedicated to showing the value that the men and women in construction bring to our modern life. Our purpose is to instill pride within the construction industry and inspire the next generation of young people by telling the story of American construction. We are the only organization solely dedicated to promoting the construction industry while fostering a sense of respect for the talented professionals who are a part of it. Our movement aims to bring together the entire industry, regardless of company size or specialty, with one unified message: I Build America.
One of the ways we aim to accomplish this is through Construction Appreciation Week. Scheduled for the 3rd week in September, this annual initiative serves as an official opportunity to acknowledge and give credit to people in construction, which will help build pride in the industry and raise awareness of their contribution to society.
Why does construction matter?
The strength of our nation’s infrastructure depends on the development and empowerment of the construction industry workforce. Construction affects the lives of every person in America, and the impact of those who work in the industry extends far beyond the boundaries of the job site. Not only does this initiative serve as an official opportunity to recognize the men and women who contribute to the development of our infrastructure, but to create a dialogue and encourage understanding of the value of construction among members of our local communities.
