As the professional voice of the hydronic heating-cooling industry in the Chicago area, CBHCC actively supports and works toward the following objectives:
  • To provide information and guidance for Chicagoland area builder-developers, architects, engineers, school officials, apartment owners, home builders and the general public in the proper specification, installation and maintenance of hydronic systems.
  • To develop and support programs of education and information for the industry and for specifiers and users of hydronic equipment.
  • To strengthen and promote better communications, trade relations and programs of mutual interest with allied industry groups.

The mission of the CBHCC is to craft, plan and conduct programs that contribute to the training and development of union mechanical contractors and union service technicians. CBHCC serves as the one organization linking union contractors, Pipe Fitters' Local Union 597, manufacturers and suppliers. Our guidance principles are: to promote union construction, to collaborate with other organizations, and to maintain flexibility in programing to respond quickly and proactively to industry trends.

We envision the service sector as having the greatest growth potential in our industry, and we see a business environment where hands-on training is of ever-increasing importance. The CBHCC will be a recognized contributor and leader in that environment.
