Rockford, Indiana, is an epicenter of the American construction industry, but it’s not the only one.
The city’s construction workers, known as “rockers,” have taken up a number of occupations, ranging from construction supervisors to mechanics.
These are just some of the occupations that have been taken up by these workers in Rockford.
The Hill spoke with several of these rockers, who told us about the jobs they’ve taken on in Rockfords construction industry.
Rockford is a city that has been known as the home of the Rockford Marathon, the first indoor marathon in the U.S. In 2015, the Rockfeller Marathon was named as the best outdoor event in the country.
In 2018, the American Council of Engineering Companies named Rockford as the #1 urban construction site in the United States for 2020.
This is not to say that Rockford isn’t a diverse place, though.
Rockfell has a rich history of its own, and the Rockners have helped to enrich it.
In the early 1900s, construction workers in the town worked on the Rock Canyon Dam, which was constructed by the Illinois Central Railroad.
The dam is now home to the Indiana River Aquarium, which is one of the largest aquariums in the world.
This project was an effort to protect the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, which were being built at the time.
The Rockford Rocknroller said the project was a labor of love for the town.
“The work that went into the project had such an impact on the town and the surrounding area, and we feel very proud that we were able to be part of it,” he said.
Rocknrollers work often as a team, as many of the construction jobs require them to work as a single group.
For example, one construction worker told The Hill that he works for a company that has two different workers.
“I’m a contractor.
I have to deal with both, but I have a lot of different responsibilities and I’m constantly looking for ways to improve my work,” he explained.
“As a Rocknocker, I get to be an equal partner with the two different people.
We’re always in the same place.
That’s something that I appreciate about the Rock Nrollers.
They’re always there to help me.”
The Rocknowers have also been instrumental in preserving the town’s cultural heritage.
“One of the things we’ve really struggled with is preserving the cultural heritage of Rockford and the area,” the Rockroller explained.
The building industry, like many other industries, relies on workers who are physically and mentally able.
“It’s important to keep that in mind when you hire someone to work in Rocknerville,” the rocker explained.
While many of these construction workers have gone on to gain jobs in other industries or have been retired, many of them have taken on a life of rock climbing.
They have made the city their home, and they have been instrumental to Rockford’s continued growth.
The rocker said that while many construction jobs have been difficult to come by, the community has always been supportive of their work.
“We’ve always been able to support them and give them the support that they need, but we don’t want them to feel like they’re not welcome here,” he added.
Rocker said he’s never felt like his job was the only thing he was needed for.
“There’s always someone who is in need of a job and that’s what we want to do, to provide them with that opportunity,” he emphasized.
Rock nrollers say that their work is often the reason the city is growing, as the Rock Feller Marathon is one reason the community is growing.
“This is where we are and this is what we’ve always done,” the construction worker said.
“When we’re here, we’re helping to shape Rockford.”
