Gary’s Answer

There is a great CA based company called Granite Construction that has many awesome jobs. They typically work on major infrastructure projects. And there is always the opportunity to get a degree in architecture and build custom homes. Lots of opportunities out there.

Facilities Management touches both of these areas.

Dennis’s Answer

Hey Justin,

If you want to do both Architecture and Construction then you're in luck. The practice of Design-Build generally combines both designer(s) and contractors or Construction Managers in one singular company. This kind of company means that architects and engineers work with construction professionals all the way through the design and building of a project. Usually this allows the building or construction side to start while some aspect of the design are still being finalized.

A degree in Architecture, Interior Design, or Engineering would work, but you could also look into a degree in Construction Management to deal with logistics, estimating and scheduling.

Good Luck!
