What’s to love about working as an architect, an engineer or a project manager in Pittsburgh? A lot of things, as a few young design professionals say in a video below.
“Makers” from such companies as P.J. Dick on the North Shore, Desmone & Associates architecture firm in Lawrenceville and Nello Construction in Canonsburg were just a few of the participants in the design-build contest sponsored by the Carpenters Union’s at their state-of-the-art training center in Robinson Township.
Teams of architects, engineers and carpenters had two weeks (around their full-time jobs) to come up with a design and engineering plan for a themed miniature golf course hole, gathering to build it in a single day. The competition coincided with an open house at the state-of-the-art center, as students from more than 100 high schools and career/technical training programs gathered to learn about careers during demonstrations and conversations with working carpenters.
Skilled carpenters are in high demand in the Pittsburgh region, particularly as construction season kicks into high gear as the weather warms. Apprentice carpenters earn while they learn during the four-year training programs. Upon completing the training, a journeyman carpenter’s starting salary ranges from $40,000 to $80,000 a year. An experienced carpenter can earn more than $90,000.
