About

The Northwest Indiana Business RoundTable (NWIBRT) is an independent, non-profit council of local firms committed to the improvement of construction and maintenance projects in Northwest Indiana. Its purpose is to promote safety, quality, and cost-effective solutions to challenges faced by owners, contractors, and labor in the region.

NWIBRT provides a number of ongoing forums in which peers and colleagues can meet to share information and discuss items of mutual interest, such as job site safety, training, conductibility, project management, productivity, labor relations, and facility maintenance.

The RoundTable offers frequent seminars, professional development opportunities, and special presentations featuring both national experts and local leadership. It also acts as an information service which assembles and distributes pertinent information to its members and subscribers about regional manpower needs and availability projections, items of general interest, and minutes of meeting proceedings. The organization also co-hosts the annual CAF/NWIBRT Safety Awards Banquet, which recognizes area companies with an outstanding commitment to workplace safety.

NWIBRT has also taken the lead in initiating the revised BCRC Substance Abuse Policy, and plays an ongoing role in seeking and identifying further improvements to its guidelines.
