Our Mission


ABC believes contractors should
have equal opportunity to win work and
deliver that work safely, ethically, and profitably.

We are guided by a vision to provide leadership and be the recognized voice of the construction industry — to provide a forum of open exchange and camaraderie through membership, service, and networking; to promote integrity and ethics through the Merit Shop Philosophy. We work toward improving education and training in the construction industry and are active in encouraging and facilitating participation in the political process.

Across three decades, our mission has been to advance the Merit Shop construction philosophy which encourages open competition and a free-enterprise approach that awards contracts based solely on merit, regardless of labor affiliation.
