The American construction industry is well structured and encompasses Unions and Non-Unions workforces. Two major construction associations represent over 40,000 construction companies (we are member of both associations). They will welcome construction companies from around the world because foreigners bring different ideas that can help the industry flourish.
US immigration authorises key employees to obtain US work visas and Permanent residency (Green Card). Every key employee responsible for the success of the overall construction project are admissible. Ex: Architects, Engineers in every aspect of construction, Chief executive officer (CEO), Chief operation officer (COO), Chief financial officer (CFO), Project managers and Middle managers.
Of course, the US immigration authorities expect all the construction workers (hands-on that will be performing the actual construction) to be Americans.
