AWCI’s Coalitions

AWCI belongs to a number of trade coalitions that support the work and people of the construction industry. Members benefit from AWCI’s involvement through resource and policy development, education and industry awareness.

Consensus Doc

ConsensusDocs: ConsensusDocs was founded in 2007 under the leadership of 20 organizations in the architecture, engineering and construction (A/E/C) industry, with one goal in mind: to help the industry build a better way by developing contracts that protect the best interests of the project. In order to do so, the ConsensusDocs Coalition created a process dependent on trust, collaboration and innovation. As the A/E/C industry evolves, the ConsensusDocs Coalition continues to create working groups to meet the industry’s contract needs.

CIA for Suicide Prevention

Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention: The Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention was born out of necessity in response to statistics released in a CDC study ranking construction as the #1 industry for deaths by suicide. Established by the Construction Financial Management Association in 2016 to shatter the stigma surrounding mental health issues, CIASP became a stand-alone 501(c)(3) organization in 2018 to raise awareness about suicide prevention and provide resources and tools to create a zero suicide industry by uniting and supporting the construction community. Construction workers are at a heightened risk for suicide for a variety of reasons that can all be addressed, starting with changing the culture in the workplace.

Construction Industry Safety Coalition Logo

Construction Industry Safety Coalition: The Construction Industry Safety Coalition is made up of 25 trade associations, representing associations from all sectors of the construction industry, including commercial building, heavy industrial production, home building, road repair, specialty trade contractors and material suppliers. Workplace safety and health is a priority for all members of the coalition, and each is committed to helping create safer construction job sites for workers. The CISC has its roots in a long-standing group of construction industry trade associations who for decades have met to discuss safety and health initiatives in the construction industry.

Construction Safety Week

Construction Safety Week: Safety Week was initially started in 2014 when more than 40 national and global construction firms comprising the Construction Industry Safety Initiative group and the Incident and Injury Free CEO Forum joined forces with a single aim: to inspire everyone in the industry to be leaders in safety.

In 2016, Safety Week was more formally branded and started to take shape as the fully integrated annual campaign with a growing number of members and sponsors that exists today. Construction Safety Week continues to focus on its original mission of

  • Thanking workers for supporting safety and recognizing their efforts to be injury free.
  • Increasing awareness of the importance of being committed to safety, every day.
  • Encouraging everyone to share best practices and to work together to strengthen the industry’s safety culture.
  • Conducting on-site safety awareness activities to support education.

Generation T logo

Generation T: Generation T’s mission is to show people that "work" doesn't have to be a grind. To show that benefits go way beyond healthcare and a 401(k). To show that you can enjoy what you do and still buy a house, take vacations and support a family. To give hope, happiness and the satisfaction of a job well done. To connect individuals to the growing number of rewarding opportunities that are ready for the taking. By 2028 there will be 3 million job openings in the skilled trades. Generation T is on a mission to connect people with those opportunities.
