Who We Are

Serving the Chicagoland Commercial Construction Industry

The AGC is the nation’s largest and most effective voice for construction firms in the nation. Being an AGC member offers contractors and service providers a myriad of benefits and resources, in addition to the Builders Association’s resources in labor, safety, education, government relations and more.
