The General Contractors Association of Hawaii (GCA) was formed in 1932 by general contractors from the four major islands of Hawaii. It was later shut down during World War II, but reformed and incorporated in 1945. The GCA is a full service construction association serving General Contractors, Subcontractors, Equipment/Material Suppliers and Associate Members.

The General Contractors Association of Hawaii is the industry leader dedicated to skill, integrity and responsibility. We are the organization of choice for those associated with the construction industry.
