Construction engineers are often paid by the hour.
But they’re not always paid the same amount as a construction worker.
The National Association of Contractors (NAC) has released a list of construction industry salaries, which breaks down the average hourly wage for the top earners by job.
The average hourly salary for construction engineers is $46,800, according to NAC data, and it is the highest on the list at $49,600.
It is the second highest in the U.S.
The salary range for construction contractors is the median salary of construction workers, with a median annual salary of $51,400.
Construction engineers are also more likely to be employed in the healthcare industry, according the report.
They are paid the most in the $50,000-$60,000 range.
