Chartered in 1976 as a chapter of the national Associated Builders and Contractors organization, Associated Builders and Contractors of Connecticut (CT ABC) is a membership organization representing Merit Shop contractors. This designation, which applies to 80 percent of the state’s construction industry, holds that construction contracts “should be awarded to the lowest responsible, qualified bidder based on merit, regardless of the company’s non-union or union affiliation.” CT ABC is involved in political advocacy, provides numerous educational options, and supports construction safety initiatives.
