Tri-County Contractors Association of Michigan
The TCCA was incorporated under the laws of the State of Michigan in 1984 and has grown from just a few members at the time of incorporation to an effective and viable construction industry association with 27 Contractor members and 40 Associate members as of January 1, 2018.
One of the many accomplishments of the TCCA since its formation in 1984 is the win-win approach created by working with local owners and their consulting engineers to produce and supply contractors with more accurate bidding documents. Before the formation of the TCCA, the word "incidental" was extensively used in the bidding documents of many projects in the Tri-City area. The TCCA was instrumental in working with the local consulting engineers to present a more precise and concise set of plans and specifications for each project. This accomplishment has benefited project owners as well as the contractors performing the work on their projects. With this win-win situation, project owners pay only for items completed by the contractors, and the contractors are paid for the work they perform. Project owners and contractors avoid on-the-job conflicts arising from whether an item is considered incidental when the performance expectations are clearly stated in the bidding documents.
Our consultant, Richard H. Crannell, works on a part-time basis managing the many day-to-day business tasks, distributing communications, and facilitating meetings with the TCCA Board of Directors and the Engineer/Contractor Committee members. Also, Mr. Crannell participates in meetings with construction industry partners on behalf of the TCCA. Minutes from these meetings are communicated to the membership through email. Mr. Crannell is available to provide assistance to members as necessary. He takes prompt action to see that members' concerns are addressed. Mr. Crannell will provide guidance and respond to members' concerns, and if necessary, the matter will be referred to the Board of Directors for further review.
This directory is provided as a service to our membership as a convenient and valuable reference tool. We encourage anyone soliciting bids/proposals to contact the TCCA so that we may distribute the solicitations to our TCCA membership as it may apply to the Associate and/or Contractor members. Likewise, whenever possible, please purchase goods and services from our Associate and Contractor Members who graciously support this organization.
