About us / Our story
Founded in 1957, built to last.
Construction Contractors Association (CCA) was founded in 1957 and has continually provided services, not only for our members but for developers and project owners as well. Our association has served as a conduit to connect project owners with the appropriate contractors for their needs.
“I am proud to serve as executive director of this fine organization. The Board of Directors and our staff continue to strive to maintain CCA’s reputation for providing outstanding contractors and suppliers for every project. Adapting to changes in our region and work environment, CCA will continue to be an exemplary partner to our members, our developers and our union partners.”

In 1957 a group of five contractors in the Hudson Valley met to create stability in the contractor-union relationship by developing a strong and effective contractors association called the Hudson Valley Construction Employers Association (HVECA). For the next seven years, the association grew steadily until 1964 when the Ulster County Contractors joined the ranks and created a larger more encompassing organization.
Three years later the HVECA opened its first office in Newburgh and in 1972 merged with the Contractors and Suppliers Association of Rockland County. Now the association’s footprint included the counties of Ulster, Orange, Greene, Columbia, Sullivan, and Rockland prompting the association to officially change its name to the Construction Employers of the Hudson Valley, Inc. (CEHV)
In 1988 the Association built its headquarters on Meadow Avenue in Newburgh and changed its name once again to better represent its members – Construction Contractors Association of the Hudson Valley, Inc. (CCA)
Today, CCA works diligently to properly connect business owners with the type of contractors necessary to complete a project on time and within budget. CCA contractors employ local union members who are instructed through New York State-certified apprentice training programs and are OSHA certified. For more than six decades, our contractors have established a well-earned reputation for quality work delivered on time and within budget.
In its 60 years, the Construction Contractors Association of the Hudson Valley has evolved from the vision of a small group of concerned businessmen to a first class enterprise that has had a hand in almost every significant construction project across the Hudson Valley. With its strategy of providing quality management coupled with outstanding workmanship, CCA is the right choice to get the job done right, on time and within budget.
