Vision and History


Our vision is to be the premier construction association, proactively driving change in public and private infrastructure through workforce development, training and education and serving as an advocate for infrastructure development in Colorado.   

As our industry continues to evolve, our members can count on CCA to continue advancing the future of infrastructure construction by staying ahead of funding and legislative trends, promoting innovative practices, cultivating new industry partnerships and providing state-of-the-art education and training.


When CCA was founded in 1933, we focused on the ‘infrastructure’ of the day: roads and highways. 

As Colorado has grown, the industry has expanded and our members have evolved, CCA has evolved as well, spending much time working to expand its sphere of influence and broaden its services for a wide range of infrastructure segments, including transportation, utilities as well as sub-contractors, small businesses, women and minority-owned firms, utility contractors, water and waste water, excavation and specialty contractors across the state. 

Some of our accomplishments in these arenas include:  

  • CCA initiated and led the creation of the Water Infrastructure Network Colorado (WIN) and fought to restore millions of dollars from mineral severance tax revenue back to local governments for infrastructure repair and maintenance.  For more information about WIN Colorado please click here.

  • CCA has active underground, utility and excavation committees working on specification issues, owner agency relations and advocating for the contractors at every level of our state.
