McGuire’s transition to Superintendent comes at a time when labor shortages and a generational skills gap continue to be a rising challenge in the construction industry. According to a recent study by the Associated General Contractors of America, 88% of construction firms are having a hard time finding workers to hire. There are simply less skilled people entering the workforce as the older, more experienced construction workers prepare to retire. Helmkamp is preparing for this shift as the average tenure of current Helmkamp superintendents is 17 years, a few of whom have been with the company for over 30 years.
