Jobs Fair – January, 2018
One more reason we made sure to attend this event was to continue to develop our relationship with the Asheville community. We started working in Asheville in the 1990’s, and have long-standing relationships with clients throughout Buncombe County. Several of the buildings that shape the Asheville skyline, including the Indigo, the Grove Arcade, and the newly completed Cambria Hotel, were WEAVERCOOKE projects. Besides these larger projects, we have also provided construction for many affordable housing communities in Asheville.
For WEAVERCOOKE, it is important to be an active part of the communities that we serve. It is a priority for us to hire local subcontractors whenever possible. We also prefer to have our projects staffed by construction professionals who are residents of the area they’re working in.
WEAVERCOOKE has over $80 million worth of work in the Asheville area currently in Preconstruction. As these large projects start breaking ground, we hope to ensure that the economic impact will benefit Asheville and filter back into the local economy. Events like the Homecoming Job Fair help us realize that goal.
