Job Overview

There are two types of ironworkers – generalist ironworkers and reinforcing ironworkers.

  • Generalist ironworkers live on the edge working at the highest points of structural ironwork. They hoist, bolt, fasten, cut, bend, weld and erect components for giant storage tanks, towers and other oil and gas structures.
  • Reinforcing ironworkers reinforce the structural integrity at the very foundation of a building or plant. They cut, bend, lay out, install and weld rebar and wire fabric to increase the tension of structures.

Both are involved in almost every part of construction in the energy industry working on projects ranging from LNG export facilities to natural gas processing plants to offshore rigs. They both also play a role in repairing and maintaining oil and natural gas facilities.
