One of the many reasons construction is so incredibly unique is because of its community.
Construction professionals can attest that, regardless of industry position, location or market segment, the community within the built environment is more akin to a family than an office. With their deep passion for their craft and a sacrificial care for their colleagues, there is no better ecosystem to develop as a person and as a professional than in construction. Perhaps most clearly depicted by the various trade unions, apprentices become journeymen only when they have received the required education and cultivation from their mentors. And as the world becomes more inter-connected with the Internet and mobile devices, companies and individuals now have consistent access to the community that they care so much about.
