A United Force
The Builders Guild is a unique labor/management initiative launched by the building and construction trade unions of western Pennsylvania and local professional contractor associations to promote quality construction, provide a forum for labor and management to work together on issues of common concern, and to create career opportunities for men and women interested in working in the demanding and challenging construction industry.
Today, the Builders Guild is recognized as a major voice for the construction industry throughout western Pennsylvania and beyond.
We Built This City.
QUALITY ISN'T EXPENSIVE, IT'S PRICELESS.
Arthur J. Rooney II
Heinz Field Project
"The men & women who built Heinz Field created what we think is the greatest stadium in the NFL. And people from around the country have noticed the outstanding skill & craftsmanship that went into creating such a great stadium. And it was all done on time & on budget."
Director of Capital Projects
Carnegie Mellon University
"We have two major construction challenges. The first is to coordinate construction with our academic calendar. The second is to make sure construction does not interfere with our academic & research endeavors. We have always received total cooperation from the building trades unions & our MBA contractors. As a result, our expectations are not only met, but are exceeded."
President and CEO
Oxford Development Company
The Yards at 3 Crossings
“We could not execute our projects as effectively without the Pittsburgh Building Trades. Oxford plans its projects for high quality, on-time deliveries and we make firm commitments based on these plans. We know that when we have the Building Trades on the other side of the contract that we will meet our commitments.“
President & CEO
The Soffer Organization
South Side Works Project
"As a master developer for the Southside Works, we put together a team of the best architects & contractors in Pittsburgh. The building trades unions also were specifically targeted because the performance levels of our building had to be the top of the market. Today, the buildings themselves are truly sculptures."
Stephen G. Lepper
Sports & Exhibition Authority
"We were charged with building three projects in Pittsburgh: two stadiums & a convention center. We had a very tight schedule & a very tight budget. Without our relationship with the unions & their ability to provide us with skilled craftsman on-site in a timely fashion, we would have never been able to succeed."
"Norman Centre II Shopping Center was the first all union project we constructed thanks to the funding from The ERECT Funds. Because of the good work & the competitive costs we received, we asked the unions to construct a major high-rise condo for us as well. We were very satisfied."
