The St. Louis Council of Construction Consumers (SLCCC) will honor award winners for construction industry best practices and for diversity and inclusion at a Gala Reception and Dinner on Monday, March 7 at Bissingers in St. Louis. The organization will also celebrate the 45th anniversary of the organization.
The Best Practice awards recognize successful implementation of Best Practices validated by the Construction Industry Institute (CII). The CII has validated 17 Best Practices that successfully contribute to improve cost, schedule and quality for construction projects. They require adopting a culture and disciplined implementation of critical elements to achieve project success. Awards will be presented to teams for projects in the Missouri region.
Diversity awards recognize advocacy for inclusion in design and construction. Organization winners will be recognized for programs that increase the capacity and capability of woman and minority owned firms or that grow the use of women and minorities working in construction. The SLCCC will also recognize individuals as Inclusion Champions for their efforts to promote the use of women or minority owned businesses on projects or who have created opportunities for women and minorities to work in design and construction.
The SLCCC is the Owner advocate organization for achievement of best value in project delivery. It serves as the regional leader that champions promotion of project delivery best practices through exceptional educational programs, information dissemination and collaboration. The Council represents major Owners who are buyers of construction services in the commercial, institutional, industrial, utility and public sectors. Associate members provide the contracting, design professional and other services used by construction consumers.
