The renewable energy industry is expanding rapidly. We equip our professional craftspeople with skills and mindset to power this new wave of American industry.
The UBC represents one trade with many crafts.
Our members touch every aspect of a construction project from foundation to finish; they’re frequently the first on the job and the last to leave. UBC carpenters build houses, skyscrapers, hospitals, bridges, and more, in all cases providing the skill and experience that can only be developed with union training.
UBC commercial carpenters provide the crucial foundation for concrete, exteriors, roofs, infrastructure, and scaffolding while also crafting fine trim and finish work. These professionals work with a variety of materials in every kind of structure; they are responsible for bringing blueprints to life. UBC carpenters are skilled in laying out, measuring, cutting, erecting, and joining materials together. They are highly trained to work quickly, accurately, and safely, while delivering the quality of work contractors and their customers have come to expect.
UBC millwrights are highly trained experts who bring the capability to work safely and efficiently in a variety of industries across North America including automotive, material handling, mechatronics, power generation, oil & gas, and renewable energy.
