Baton Rouge is the prime place to move to this year for those who are looking for industrial construction work. According to the Greater Baton Rouge Industry Alliance (GBRIA), the construction job demand is expected to spike throughout the rest of 2015.
Apparently, the spike is going to come from scheduled plant turnarounds. The GBRIA explained that turnarounds are when “an entire processing unit of a plant is taken offline to upgrade or replace it.”
If you are moving to Baton Rouge and will be looking for construction jobs, the top jobs that are in demand include pipefitters, welders, instrument and electrical technicians, boilermakers, equipment operators, insulators, mechanics, millwrights, and scaffold builders.
The state of Louisiana also passed over $129 billion in capital improvements, $35 billion of which are located in Baton Rouge. The Baton Rouge construction projects will require 5,000 direct hires, 11,000 permanent indirect hires, and 25,000 construction jobs that are temporary.
As exciting as this may sound for Baton Rouge construction workers, it doesn’t stop there. These figures are actually low for the state, and the numbers are only expected to increase as the years go by.
