In this video from Building Wisconsin TV, host Stuart Keith catches up with contractors and members of Ironworkers Local 8 at the Baird Center Project in Milwaukee. We’ll see firsthand what it’s like to be one of the “Cowboys in the Sky” and the work covered by the Ironworker trade. From massive still beams being placed to the rebar and reinforcements needed to build a massive structure, Ironworkers Josh Kettle and Josh Janis from JP Cullen take us on a super cool tour. Stu also visits the Ironworkers Local 8 Training Center in Neenah to meet with Business Mgr Charlie Falkner and Apprenticeship Coordinator Rich Hanson to learn about starting a career as an Ironworker and the training that goes into this building trade.
