Last updated on July 2nd, 2019 at 10:59 am

A job fair will be held on Monday, Oct. 20, to provide information to workers about construction job opportunities available for the $450 million, 32-story, Northwestern Mutual Tower and Commons office building project.

Northwestern Mutual has committed to have at least 40 percent of the workers on the project be city residents and is supporting worker training efforts for construction workers for this and other future construction projects in the area. The project will employ about 1,000 construction workers.

A team of Gilbane Building Co. and Milwaukee-based C.G. Schmidt Inc. is the general contractor for the project, which is expected to be complete in 2017.

WRTP/BIG STP will provide training and access to trade apprenticeship opportunities available through the Northwestern Mutual project.

The job fair will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., Monday, Oct. 20, at the Washington Park Senior Center, 4420 W. Vliet St. The job fair will also address barriers to employment, such as a lack of a driver’s license, GED, or other assistance needs. More information is available by calling (414) 342-9787.
