Construction Career Collaborative (C3) is an alliance that brings together companies, organizations and individuals committed to enhancing career opportunities and growing and maintaining a qualified workforce. 

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 misclassified, 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. 

Chamberlin is happy to be part of this initiative establishing and enforcing standards in skills and safety training. Read more about the impact C3 has here.
