Construction Resources in Coconut Creek
As we strive to help give the commercial construction community a voice in South Florida, we find it important to provide proper construction resources and training. Whether you are already in commercial construction as a builder or contractor, or you’re interested in joining the construction trade, it’s important to know what resources are available. At ABC East Florida in Coconut Creek, we’ve had over four decades of experience in the industry, allowing us to fine-tune the resources we offer. Below you will find a summary of the resources we have available.
Our construction training and resources
- Hurricane protection: Hurricanes contain immense power and are capable of causing extreme damage to buildings under construction; therefore, proper planning is essential to help minimize potential damage. Our hurricane action planning kit contains valuable tools and resources, including multiple checklists, team forms, tables, and materials and equipment.
- STEP (Safety Training Evaluation Process): Created in 1989, the STEP program is designed for large and small contractors. By making safety one of our primary values, we ensure the entire construction process is founded on solid, lasting principles. In fact, data revealed that STEP participants beat BLS national averages in all lagging indicator performance benefits. Best of all, we do not charge you to use STEP.
- Photos: To supplement the material and information we provide; we have literally thousands of photos from over the years for you to peruse. From networking events to trivia nights, it’s all in the pictures.
- Construction safety log: To help increase productivity, we provide a logbook with a clear, simple format to take notes. Keeping records gives you an advantage in the case of arbitration or litigation — all because you’ve been keeping track of work authorizations, equipment rentals and more. We offer standard and pocket editions for your convenience.
- Construction site signs: All our signs meet the necessary Florida laws regarding sign language and lettering. The reverse side is written in Spanish. All signs are durable and can be used for multiple occasions.
- Drug- and alcohol-free pledge: Take the pledge and be part of the coalition that calls for drug- and alcohol-free work zones. Designed to give companies and organizations the necessary resources, consider joining to help stop substance abuse incidents in your work zone.
- Office Depot discount program: When you join the Associated Builders and Contractors National Savings Program, you’ll be entitled to permanent, highly discounted rates at Office Depot and Office Max. You can save up to 80% on over 300 products, including copy paper and printer ink and toner. Next-day delivery is free on orders over $50.
