Go Build Tennessee - Reauthorized To Develop Construction Workforce 

We are pleased to report that the Go Build Tennessee was re-authorized by the state legislature and signed into law by the governor extending the program toJuly 1, 2024.  The program is designed to lay the groundwork for the development of a more robust skilled construction workforce in Tennessee. The program is in response to demographic changes including an aging workforce, the impact of a deep recession and a lack of interest from secondary and post-secondary students. The result has been a persistent lack of skilled workers in the construction trades. Go Build will help develop the workforce who will benefit from better jobs and careers in the construction industry across the state.

The Go Build program is promoted through multimedia advertising, promotional materials, media campaigns and a website to spur interest in young people across the state to choose construction related fields for further job training and jobs.

The program is run by a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation comprised of members from Associated General Contractors, Associated Builders and Contractors, Home Builders Association of Tennessee and the Tennessee Road Builders Association.

Improving Pathways to Career/Technical Education and Training 

Finding the qualified construction workers and trade specialists to support the construction industry in Tennessee continues to be a challenge. While the Go Build program and other state education initiatives are generating greater interest from young people and creating better pathways into construction trades, many construction firms still struggle to find the construction talent to build their projects. 

To be clear, the construction employment issue did not happen overnight in Tennessee and across the nation. It will take more emphasis, time, energy and resources to build upon what has been accomplished to date through Go Build and the education initiatives supported by Governor Haslam and the Tennessee legislature over the past several years.
 
There is good news! One of the key points of emphasis of Governor Bill Lee centers around a renewed focus on career, technical, and agricultural education to further build upon the initiatives already in place. The new Governor has an acute understanding of the issues relative to construction trade employment and will very likely make the development of the construction industry related workforce a key priority. In fact, in the first days of Governor Lee's administration he has already travelled to areas of the state to discuss ways to enhance  workforce development across the state.
