Merit Shop

Helping members:  win work, develop people, and deliver work safely, ethically & profitably for the betterment of our communities. 

Associated Builders and Contractors is a national construction industry trade association representing more than 23,000 members. Founded on the merit shop philosophy, ABC and its 67 Chapters help members develop people, win work and deliver that work safely, ethically and profitably for the betterment of the communities in which ABC and its members work. ABC’s membership represents all specialties within the U.S. construction industry and is comprised primarily of firms that perform work in the industrial and commercial sectors.

ABC North Alabama is a committed group of more than 200 construction-related firms who are professionals supporting our country, our community and our industry. We believe the Merit Shop Philosophy and the free enterprise system go hand in hand and that construction contracts should be awarded to the lowest responsible bidder. We are committed to quality construction - completed on time and within budget.
