Heavy Construction Contractors Association

Workforce Development has been a key initiative for HCCA as our companies continually seek unskilled(entry-level) and skilled workers to build VDOT and privately-funded projects.   If an individual is willing to get their hands dirty, now is a great time to step into a rewarding career path in heavy construction. HCCA member firms are hiring entry-level and skilled positions. I am collecting job listings from our companies and compiling them on our website to be used as a resource for job seekers to see the multitude of companies hiring now. HCCA teamed up with several trade associations to work with Governor Northam’s office on declaring Construction an essential service during the pandemic. Our companies’ crews have increased their safety measures and altered their work practices to accommodate CDC recommendations on preventing the spread of COVID-19 in order to continue moving Virginia’s infrastructure forward.
