Contractors Help Builders “Un-Wind” at PCBC

June 5th, 2013

On June 5th, 2013, The Contractors In Collaboration hosted an intimate gathering at The exclusive Cat Eye Club in San Diego. With the building industry on the upswing, spirits were high and the fun was had by all. The party was held in conjunction with the inaugural PCBC San Diego trade show that was considered an overwhelming success, with a total of 7,360 attendees this year. Builders from all over southern California gathered in San Diego for two days of what is considered a true “meeting-of-the-minds” in the building industry. Many of those builders were in attendance at the Cat Eye Club to Un-Wind alongside the ten contractor companies that make up the member list of Contractors In Collaboration.

Contractors In Collaboration is an alliance of subcontractors that can offer builders more for their money and alleviate many of the challenges or unexpected costs that may arise in the lifespan of a project. Working side by side with the group members, builders are assured that all of their subs share the same values and are upholding their original commitments. Because of this collaboration, builders receive the best price, the strongest team and the security that comes from working with trades that have had years of working alongside one another with great success.
