Who We Are
The Chicagoland AGC is the leading trade association serving the Chicagoland commercial construction industry.

The merged Association serves as an even stronger voice for the industry. Chicagoland AGC members include the leading contractors and suppliers in the Chicago area. Our general contractor members range from large, national firms to smaller, specialized companies and build private and public projects worth more than $11 billion annually.
Mission Statement: To serve as a leading voice of the Chicagoland construction industry through advocacy, education, and networking to provide business opportunities, enhance labor relations, safety programs, and innovative construction practices.
