Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Hispanic Construction Association (USHCA) has joined the ConsensusDocs Coalition, a unique group of 40+ associations that produces best practice contracts for the design and construction industry.

 “This opportunity to join such a dynamic group of construction industry stakeholders allows for all Hispanic construction contractors from across the country to have access to the best practices associated with construction contract documents so essential to mitigate and seek to protect the best interests of small contractors,” said Frank Lopez, USHCA’s chief strategist and executive officer.  “With the acceptance of the USHCA as a member of the prestigious ConsensusDocs Coalition, Hispanic contractors will also have a voice for continuous and proactive input into the development of new contract clauses and terms that further seek to protect the unique parameters under which small business contractors will continue to positively contribute to their respective communities and partners in the construction industry.”

The organization is built and driven by a commitment to integrity, transparency and the advancement and growth of Hispanic businesses in the construction industry. The group is also committed in advocating and promoting workplace safety and career advancement on behalf of the growing number of Hispanics in the construction industry workforce.
