I am looking for any commercial construction projects that are happening in mainly in southern cal. I am a union carpenter checking out the sites for work. I have made my calls to various subcontractors and they just put me on the job roster. My union local gave me list of commercial contractors. It does not help unless you know somebody. I understand that all work is slow but there is work. If anyone sees anything, please let me know. Thanks

Can you do falsework? try engineering contractors, they are not hit quite as badly yet because there is still some bond money to be spent. They are suffering, but no where near as much as building contractors

Give up on commercial building projects, and government funded projects. There's too much competition among workers, and the projects are drying up. Here in southern california, get into industrial construction, more specifically refinery projects. Chevron, Exxon-Mobil, Tesoro and many others have large refineries here along the coast with projects still in the works.

There are some very large public works contracts coming out for bidding. Those will all go to union contractors. There is not much work for mid sized companies and, in public works, the companies that are getting jobs are bidding so low that they are putting themselves out of business.

Private works is pretty much gone as well exept for refineries and mining. It is not much better anywhere in the country although I heard that Oaklahoma City is growing.

good luck.
