O’ROURKE is committed to working with every community we serve, every step of the way. In doing this we can ensure we continually improve the image of construction and create a positive lasting legacy in the communities we live and work in.

Over the years, we have delivered and supported a number of initiatives across the Greater Cincinnati/ Northern Kentucky area. From providing summer camp and swim lessons for inner city children at Zielger Park to teaching school children and young adults about careers in construction through our Involvement with The Construction Career Advocacy Program (CCAP) – It’s all part of our calendar of events that sees O’ROURKE actively contributing to the communities within which we work, engaging with local people and businesses.


One of the greatest rewards of our success is that we are able to support many worthy causes. Over the years we have shown support for numerous charities – local and national, big and small. One highlight is the PATRICK H. O’ROURKE scholarship established in 1995. This annual scholarship is awarded to anyone interested in pursuing a career in construction. Our founder understood the importance of keeping the next generation interested in the skilled trades.

O’ROURKE supports and NURTURES the next generation. An example of this is our long standing relationship with Spirit of Construction Foundation and the CCAP Program working with them to educating school age children on careers in construction and employability. Giving young people in our community a head start is the right way to securing the future of our industry. We take immense pride in improving the image of construction. We actively contribute to the communities in which we work, from delivering in-house training to taking pride in the appearance of our sites, both internally and externally.
