Local User Councils

Local User Councils provide an effective forum for the exchange of ideas among owners and contractors on how to improve their local construction environment. In essence, how to find ways to get “more construction for the money.” This national network of concerned owners and contractors provides an opportunity to share ideas and best practices on how to make construction safer and more effective on a local or regional level. Construction Industry Resources (CIR) and the Construction Users Roundtable (CURT) encourages owner participation in these very important councils. For more information about these Local User Councils please contact an LUC near you.
