Ironworkers can be found working on bridges, with structural steel, on ornamental and architectural projects, and with miscellaneous metals and rebar, as well as on the inside of shops. Across the United States many of the buildings and structures you see were built by the Ironworkers. In fact, did you know that the Golden Gate Bridge was built by Ironworkers? How about the St. Louis Arch, the Sears Tower in Chicago, or the new Freedom Tower in New York City? That’s right, Ironworkers helped build all of them.
The construction of nearly every structure you can think of—schools, sports stadiums, shopping malls, hospitals, bridges, power plants, office and industrial buildings—all require the skills of trained Ironworkers.
