There is no construction without machinery and equipment, and a Construction Millwright is behind it all. You will lay out and install machinery, mechanical equipment, and other automated and robotic systems. If you consider yourself a people person, this job will have you working closely with people in other trades, like instrument mechanics, ironworkers, pipefitters, and electricians.
Specifically, on the job, you’ll do mathematical calculations to interpret drawings and turn them into a finished product. You’ll use welds, brazes, solders, rigs, hoists, and hand and power tools. You will also install bearings, seals and packing, pipe systems and valves, fans and blowers, electric and electronic controls, and pneumatic and hydraulic systems. The major perk of this job is you will drive forklifts.
