As the second fastest growing state in New England, New Hampshire’s construction industry needs to meet the rising demand for residential and commercial space.
That demand reaches all corners of the state, as people, particularly those who can work remotely, settle into rural communities and large urban centers. They are drawn to New Hampshire’s lower cost of living, proximity to the attractions of large cities, such as Boston, and a quality of life conducive to work/life balance.
In the commercial sector, growth, and the need to create new jobs is driving expansions at existing manufacturing facilities, as well as new buildings to accommodate everything from research and development to additional production lines and logistics.
Job and career opportunities abound, ranging from carpenters and craft labor to electricians and solar specialists. To assist and connect those looking for work with construction employers, the New Hampshire Sector Partnerships Initiative’s I Build NH
is the conduit for bringing them together.
I Build NH provides resources for job seekers to explore careers in the trades and other educational opportunities and works with employers to secure job training grants.
