Environmental Compliance Website for Construction to Get Major Upgrade Thanks to New Public-Private Partnership

Associated General Contractors of America to Partner with EPA to Support Major Upgrades to CICA Center Website Designed to Help Contractors Comply With Environmental Rules

Jan 22, 2015 -- Construction contractors will have an easier time learning how to comply with federal and state environmental guidelines thanks to a new partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the private sector. The partnership between the Associated General Contractors of America, EPA and the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) will allow for a significant upgrade to the Construction Industry Compliance Assistance website, or CICA Center for short, association officials noted.

"Getting a construction project underway is challenging enough without having to figure out which environmental rules apply and how to comply with them," said Stephen E. Sandherr, the chief executive officer of the Associated General Contractors of America. "This newly revamped site will make it a lot easier for contractors to take the necessary steps to comply with all environmental regulations for their projects."

"EPA is pleased that AGC recognizes the value of the CICA Center and is assuming the oversight role and funding source for the website," said Lisa Lund, Director of the Office of Compliance in EPA's Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance.

As part of the partnership, the construction association will help finance upgrades to the website, originally launched in the mid-2000s with AGC's assistance, designed to make it easier for contractors to comply with environmental regulations governing construction projects. As a result of the upgrade, contractors will now have comprehensive tools and the latest information on state and federal environmental requirements as well as green construction and environmental management programs.

NCMS will continue as a managing partner for the new website, which can be found at http://www.cicacenter.org. EPA program office staff will also continue to review and contribute to the site. The construction association will provide relevant updates as well, and secure advertising revenue that will finance the continuous upgrades to the site and content.

The new site is launching today, January 22, Sandherr added.
