Construction Industry in NH
« on: March 03, 2013, 10:35:40 am »

As my boyfriend and I start discussing marriage and where to live, NH has naturally come up. However finding work for him is vital. He is a German national, and was trained as a "schreiner" which translates literally as "carpenter" but isn't quite accurate (as far as my understanding of construction works). He can do everything from framing to roofing and everything in between minus plumbing and electric. So, how is the construction industry in NH? Would he be able to find work; is there a market for the high quality construction he's spent the last 10 years learning/working? Are certain areas of NH better for construction than others? We'd really appreciate some advice, especially as he has a friend in Idaho (another relatively free state) who owns a company and can guarantee him a job, we'd need to be certain about his opportunities in NH before moving. Thank you!!

Welcome. I am not sure but I recommend checking my sig file. I recommend reading the jobs section. Also, even though it is included in the jobs link in my sig file, I'll post it again here for your benifit. You folks might want to join the FSP Job Alert on Facebook and make an intro post. https://www.facebook.com/groups/fspjobalert

I think Joel Winters is or was also a carpenter. He might have some insight if anyone who sess this is in contact with him.

It looks like a Bass Pro Shop is going to be build in Hooksett. http://www.unionleader.com/article/20130301/NEWHAMPSHIRE1410/130309896

3-4 casinos might be built in MA during the next 2 years. I think there are is a massive outlet shop center in Merrimack that is still being worked on. There might eventually be a casino in Salem or Hudson, NH. There are plans to eventually widen the interstate south of Manchester.
