What is CChC

CChC is a labor-union association whose principal goal is to promote the development of and stimulate construction activity, as a fundamental lever for the development of the country within the context of a social market economy based on private industry.

The Chamber also looks to support the wellbeing of Chileans, especially that of construction workers and their families, through its Social Network. This network was built through time as a set of entities focused on social action which has developed thanks to the generous contribution of the members, good management and the patrimonial consolidation of the Chamber.

HISTORY:

Between 1947 and 1950, a group of business owners and professionals in the construction field, formed on the occasion of the construction projects of the Modernization and Improvement Program of La Serena, thought of the idea of creating an association that would unite the builders.

Some business owners became interested in the creation of a body of trade union nature, intended to serve the community; that would not be limited to Santiago but that would cover all of the national territory; and that was an intermediate entity of society.

Inspired by the organizations already in existence, they set out to create one that would represent not only the business owners of the construction industry but rather all of the activities of that field (manufacturers, providers, distributors, urban developers, architectural colleges, engineers and civil constructors).

The interest in a broad representation gave rise to the name: Chilean Chamber of Construction. In addition to looking to increase the volume of construction projects and improve their quality in the country, they set out to find formulas so that the construction workers would also benefit with the organization.
