How It Started
BuildWitt was founded in 2018 with a simple but ambitious mission: make the Dirt World a better place. Aaron Witt was just a kid who loved construction and got a job laying pipe when he was 18. It was easy to see that some of the most interesting and talented people worked in the industry, so he started telling their stories. And it caught on. But what started with a kid and a camera has grown to so much more—an opportunity to push the industry we know and love forward to create an even #BetterDirtWorld.
What We Stand For
We’re committed to the Dirt World—the heavy civil construction, earthwork, and mining industries—because it’s the foundation for everything else. If the Dirt World stops, so does progress.
People are what make our industry great. We believe they should always be treated well and empowered to lead because it’s just the right thing to do. There’s room for everyone at the table.
We believe everyone in the Dirt World is a leader no matter your title. We’re all responsible for stepping up and solving the problems that hold our industry back.
We shine a light on the different people who make our industry great and the incredible work they do. The Dirt World has always been essential. We want to make it impossible to ignore.
A Better Dirt World = A Better World
The Dirt World is essential to everything, from the roads we drive on to the resources that power our homes. There’s a lot of to be proud of, but there’s also opportunity to grow. We believe if we can make the Dirt World better, we’ll make the world better. By sharing stories, sharpening leadership skills, and learning from one another, we can come together to solve our industry’s biggest problems.
