Building careers. Building Communities.

The National Institute for Construction Excellence (NICE) was established in 1998 to increase awareness of construction career fields and skilled trades.

We provide teachers with career tools to educate students in construction and skilled trades. 

We are a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization and provide tools for Kansas and Missouri teachers to educate students about what’s required to become successful professionals in construction-related careers. Our program is project-based and industry-supported and begins at the sixth grade level.
