Despite its size as one of the largest industries in our country, the construction industry is currently facing a shortage of skilled men and women throughout all professions. The Lakeside Field Trip program was designed to help inform & inspire elementary and high school students about the opportunities available to them in our industry.
In addition to the many field trips we host around Washington each year, we also support the AGC Education Foundation and the laborers, operating engineers, and teamster unions in their events hosted throughout the year. Events include the Construction Career Days in Seattle and Puyallup, Dozer Days, and more.
