Who we are: The HCCA (Heavy Construction Contractors Association) is a regional trade association representing over 160 member firms of the heavy construction trades. Founded in 1957 by a small group of sewer and water contractors, the HCCA has grown to a vital organization representing a cross-section of contractors, suppliers, professionals, and municipal members who share an interest in water, sewer, storm, and road construction, site engineering and development, construction materials, insurance, services, supplies and a host of other disciplines associated with the heavy construction value chain.
HCCA's Public Action: HCCA serves as your liaison at the federal, state, and local levels. HCCA employs a lobbyist in Richmond Lynwood Butner of Butner and Associates to represent our members on the state level at the General Assembly and with the state agencies (VDOT, DMV, State Corporation Commission). HCCA members have the opportunity to present a powerful voice in any area that impacts our members. This ranges from working toward increasing funding for infrastructure development, any legislative action that might have an impact on the industry and any rule or regulation from a state agency. HCCA also maintains an active relationship with the major county governments in Northern Virginia. HCCA is available to work on issues on behalf of our members or seek clarification of either existing or proposed rules or regulations. Membership in the organization is the means to activate this service as it arises in the normal course of business.
Safety and Technical Education: Through a sizable catalog of training activities under the umbrella of the “HCCA Academy”, and in conjunction with several other related trade associations, we offer education through regular general membership meetings, classroom and practical training, technical seminars, continuing safety education and monthly newsletters.
Legislation and Regulations: The HCCA, through both our lobbyist in Richmond and our direct association with federal, state and municipal representatives and regulators we keep our membership well versed on matter of importance from those quarters that may very well impact on their businesses. This includes, but is certainly not limited to safety regulations, construction industry information, technological developments, new materials and services, legal requirements affecting employer/employee relations and a host of other germane subjects.
