APHCI champions the interests of all legitimate contractors in the sector by fostering productive relationships with Government authorities, legislative bodies, and other representative associations in the building services sector.
Through proactive engagement with all the membership throughout the country, APCHI seeks to identify the key issues of importance, and concern, for members and to devise strategies to address them.
Over a very short period of time APHCI has become the recognised representative body for the industry, with a network of regional branches — in Dublin, Cork, Waterford, Limerick, the Midlands and West of Ireland — serving the local interests of contractors which, in turn, are then fed into the broader picture on a national level.
Membership benefits include collective representation to Government and regulatory bodies such as the CER, RGII, BGE and the SEAI, in addition to preferential rates on PL, EL and vehicle insurance, health insurance, and professional services from solicitors and accountants.
