The Edmonton Construction Association is committed to providing unparalleled value to our members.  We are proud of our four strategic goals; Procurement, Collaboration, Networking and Education.  See how these goals are achieved by the ECA below:

  • 1. Convenient Access to over 3,000 Construction Projects Annually
  • The ECA's Electronic Plan Room COOLNet  provides Industry access to some 3,000 construction projects annually, including pre-bid, pre-qualification notices and bid results. Members have access to password protected on-line bidders lists, and many projects now have online plans, specifications, and addenda.
  • The ECA also continues to provide a Physical Plan Room for members. Members are able to book plans and specifications overnight and weekends, and order full size drawings at member rates.

    Members also receive the Plans-On-View, a comprehensive weekly email document with project listing and bidder information including pre-bid notices, metro Edmonton building permit statistics and federal project information.
  • 2. Networking Opportunities
    At the ECA we are focused on bringing members together!  Members are invited to network with their Industry colleagues at annual Association events. Rich in tradition, these events include our Annual General Meeting, Swing into Spring, Night at the Races, Tailgate Party and various Golf Tournaments throughout the year.  The ECA also hosts smaller events monthly at our office, including Summer Parking Lot BBQ's in the summer and Third Thursday Networking Events throughout the fall and winter.
  • 3. Significant Savings
    Members receive preferred pricing on purchases of Standard Contracts & Guides. Members can also take advantage of the Chrysler Fleet Program, Nissan Fleet Program and Chevrolet Fleet Program as well as save an additional 2.0 a litre above existing discounts with Esso & Petro-Canada Fuel Discount Programs. Commissioner for Oaths services are also complimentary for members and are available at second-floor reception.
  • 4. Industry News & Information
    Members receive the following publications: Edmonton Construction Association On the Level, the Alberta Construction Association (ACA) weekly newsletter,  Alberta Construction Magazine and Canadian Construction Association National. 
  • 5. The Big Picture
    The ECA acts as a voice regarding industry standard practices, policies and procedures to the Federal, Provincial and Municipal Government.
