Like the buildings our members construct, the Sudbury Construction Association began in 1948 with a solid foundation – the skills and experience of local contractors and trades people. Today, we are an ICI association supporting contractors, manufacturers & suppliers, service providers, consulting firms, and training and personnel providers. We promote member interests and provide specialized services to help our more than 270 members compete and succeed.
Throughout its 64 year history, the SCA has undergone many changes. From building renovations to staff & volunteers, the SCA has changed to accommodate a continually shifting industry. With the help of COCA, we continually improve liaisons with local, provincial and federal government which in turn help to determine comprehensible construction laws for Northern Ontario contractors.
Our Board of Directors is chosen in a way that ensures fair representation of all types of construction. The SCA staff, along with the Board of Directors and many volunteers, serves as a collective voice to promote everything from apprenticeship education & training to suitable and desirable legislation, working conditions and wages that affect the industry in all its branches.
The SCA is connected to all of the Ontario Plan Rooms and now boasts connectivity to the National Plan Room. Our in-house plan room is 24-hour access; however, our electronic plan room now offers local and non-local contractors online accessibility that was never before available to them.
The Sudbury Construction Association was formed in 1948 by Charles Carrington. Originally located at Carrington Construction, the SCA remained there until 1954. The SCA then moved and has continued to operate out of 257 Beatty Street for more than 60 years. It has grown into an organization which represents over 270 union & non-union general and trade contractors, manufacturers, and suppliers from all over the province. We provide a wide variety of other services in response to today’s changing construction industry.
The building is also home to the Mechanical Contractors Association.
