The New York Building Congress, a broad based membership association celebrating its 94th year, is committed to promoting the growth and success of the construction industry in New York City and its environs.


The New York Building Congress provides a unique forum to advance an industry-wide agenda focusing on economic and infrastructure investment, job creation and professional exchange. These goals require the dedicated involvement and cooperation of the contractors, architects, engineers, unions, real estate managers, developers and owners who comprise the building community.

On behalf of nearly 400 constituent organizations comprising more than 250,000 skilled trades people and professionals, the New York Building Congress supports sound public policy; promotes productive capital spending; encourages public/private partnerships, and evaluates the implementation of major government projects.

To foster relationships and cooperation, the New York Building Congress sponsors consensus-building activities and encourages a free exchange of ideas among leaders of industry associations, businesses and the public sector.

The New York Building Congress promotes competence and productivity in the workplace, with special emphasis on public service, teamwork, and partnership with government. Members are encouraged to conduct business with honesty, integrity, and with a spirit of fair competition.
