Project Build Minnesota Gaining Steam

What’s the number one issue facing the housing industry? “Labor, labor, labor,” said Bob Michels, president of Housing First Minnesota.

Addressing the workforce shortage is one of the biggest obstacles facing the housing industry. Thus, Project Build Minnesota was created.

Project Build Minnesota is a state-wide construction workforce enhancement campaign that promotes a positive image of construction as a life-long career choice for young men and women of all backgrounds.

Working together, industry professionals, associations and organizations are focusing on providing tools and information to the next generation of aspiring builders.

The movement is designed to foster career choice awareness across all lines of the residential and commercial building industry.

As the baby boomer generation retires, we are inviting younger generations to learn more about working with their hands and building a good-paying career in the building industry.
