This website, “Yeah, I Built That” is designed to be a resource for young people exploring career paths, parents, guidance counselors, teachers, employers, union leaders, and public officials.
The site’s name comes from the answer we most frequently hear when we ask construction industry members what they love best about their chosen path. Over and over, they tell us it’s the moment when they can pass by a completed structure or project, point, and say, “Yeah, I built that!” It doesn’t matter if they’re an architect, a carpenter, or a project accountant — they’re all part of the team.
On YeahIBuiltThat you will find profiles of emerging leaders in the Region’s construction industry. This site has information about specific career paths, videos, links to resources ranging from apprenticeship and university programs to assistance with basic needs such as transportation and legal assistance. We are committed to seeing that the information is pertinent.
This site was built, and is maintained, by Construction Forum.
Construction Forum is a 501(c)3 nonprofit formed in 2013, with the objective of communicating, convening, and building collaboration in the St. Louis built environment community, in order to make the region a more inclusive and economically vibrant home for all of its residents.
In early 2020, following months of strategic planning, the Forum adopted a bold new mission and vision and elected an expanded, diverse board of directors.
Our Mission is: “To facilitate the collaboration of all the stakeholders in the STL Region’s built environment in creating inclusive, robust employment and economic growth.”
Our Vision is: “Social equity, economic opportunity, economic growth.”
