On top of a backlogged supply chain and seemingly endless price hikes on building materials, home builders are also battling a labor shortage that continues to delay new home construction in an otherwise fast-paced market. In order to attract and retain skilled laborers, national builder Taylor Morrison recently launched a six-week paid, hands-on construction superintendent program called Voyager.

The Sarasota-based pilot program kicks off in a classroom for the majority of the six-week time frame before introducing students to a physical jobsite. From there, Voyager students are provided with a laptop, a phone, and a mentor and are quickly placed into an open position, Sarasota Magazine reports.

“They’re not swinging the hammer, but they’re handling the dirt through to a completed home,” [Steve] Evans says. Superintendents coordinate the building process and make sure it’s on time. A day in the life includes scheduling workers, paying vendors and regularly meeting with customers about the progress of their new home. Once they’re ready, construction superintendents manage 12 to 15 home projects in a given area.
