Join us in celebrating National Construction Appreciation Week. Each year in the third week of September (Monday – Friday), National Construction Appreciation Week acknowledges and celebrates all of the people working in the U.S. construction industry. At McConkey, we recognize the dedication of those hard-working men, women, and businesses instrumental in the development of our nation’s infrastructure. From highways to hospitals, the impact of the construction industry is everywhere you look. This annual five-day tribute celebrates the sacrifice and tireless effort the construction industry puts forth to keep our country going.
According to Zippia. “25 Essential US Construction Industry Statistics : Data, Trends and More” Zippia.com.Jun.27, 2023, the U.S. construction industry is vast, being valued at over $2.8 trillion in 2022. When looking at total employees, construction ranks 6th in the U.S. IBISWorld notes as of September 6, 2023, there are 9,997,965 construction employees in the U.S. in 2023.

We encourage all construction businesses to post your photos on social media during this celebrated week. Post pictures of jobs, stories from employees, videos and more. Share positive stories about the work you are doing and the people you have met. Talk about the jobs you have completed and how they have helped the communities you are in. Talk about your companies, the kind of work you do, the employees you have and the dedication to quality and safety for your staff and community.
We wish you another safe and productive year.
