St. Louis Council of Construction Consumers
The SLC3 is a community of design and construction industry professionals with a common interest in the betterment of our region through prioritizing innovation, continuing education, equity empowerment and all-inclusive workforce collaboration. Our community includes owners, designers, consultants, contractors, developers, trades, legal counsel, accounting, banking, unions, associations, insurance, marketing, suppliers, and other service or product providers.
We were founded in 1971 by a handful of the largest “consumers of construction” in town to form a community of peers collaborating on best practices for project delivery. Seeing a need to make improvements in projects also led to changes in diversity and inclusion, improving on safety, providing continuing education and of course the opportunity to have a little fun too with some networking events. In the past 50 years, the Council has grown to over 200 organization members in the St. Louis Metro Region. It has contributed in countless ways to the region and become the premiere destination where owner (buyers of AEC) and associate members (providers).
