What is the C3 Construction Process?

Construction Career Collaborative

​”A labor-neutral alliance of responsible Owners, Contractors, and Specialty Contractors, we will positively affect the issues facing the commercial construction industry in the Greater Houston region to create a safe, skilled and sustainable craft workforce.” – Construction Career Collaborative

Why C3?
The commercial construction industry has been a provider of good jobs and careers for the craft workers in this region for decades. But, that trend has been eroding in recent memory and a different kind of workforce is emerging. Desirable careers are giving way to a workforce that is aging, largely mis-classified, under-trained, and diminishing in hourly workers.

Industry sources tell us the missing link in the effort to promote industry training has been the broad participation and support of owners. As the driving force in every project, the owner is critical to workforce development. Without the commitment of owners, workforce standards become optional.

ZCA is a supporter of the C3 collaborative.
