Bringing people together to advance the issues important to the commercial construction industry.

Since 1923, AGC Houston has been supporting the commercial construction industry in a 24-county area in and around the Greater Houston region. Throughout its rich history, the chapter has and continues to represent many of the finest contractors and the affiliate firms that support them.

AGC Houston membership is comprised of local and national companies – large and small – union and merit shop, general and specialty contractors, as well as suppliers and manufacturers and industry support firms. Whether it is educational, political, informational or just collegial, AGC works to keep its membership – and the industry as a whole – up to date on the important issues of the day.

Additionally, AGC Houston is proud to be affiliated at the national and state level by the Associated General Contractors of America (Washington, D.C.) and the Texas Building Branch (Austin, Texas). The relationship with these two organizations ensures that AGC members have a voice at all government levels.

AGC-Texas Building Branch

AGC-Texas Building Branch was initially created in 1967 as a satellite office of the Houston Chapter to stay abreast of the legislative issues that might impact the commercial construction industry. In 1974, TBB was incorporated to serve as the legislative office for all AGC building chapters in the State of Texas.

Former Texas House Member Corbin Van Arsdale serves as the President and General Counsel for the organization. Under his leadership, the TBB team, along with representatives from all state AGC building chapters, work to monitor and advance the issues that are critical to the success of the commercial construction industry and its companies.

AGC of America membership can be obtained by joining a local Chapter AGC.

Located in the Metropolitan Washington, D.C. area, The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) is the leading association for the construction industry. Operating in partnership with its nationwide network of Chapters, AGC provides a full range of services satisfying the needs and concerns of its members, thereby improving the quality of construction and protecting public interest.

AGC was established in 1918 after a request by President Woodrow Wilson. Wilson recognized the construction industry’s national importance and desired a partner with which the government could discuss and plan for the advancement of the nation. AGC has been fulfilling that mission for more than 100 years.
