We positively impact the construction industry with targeted workforce development by:

  • Building a culture of safety
  • Providing innovative continuing education
  • Promoting careers in construction

To ensure the construction industry's successful future, it is imperative for the next generation of leaders to properly prepare themselves for the challenges and opportunities ahead.

The Foundation seeks to provide support, personal and professional development through scholarships for future industry professionals.

Building a better Carolinas means more than constructing world-class projects; it’s also about creating safe, thriving communities and healthy, self-sustaining citizens.

The Foundation seeks to lead its members through community service projects, throughout the Carolinas, that help provide uplifting opportunities for our fellow Carolinians.
