Easily Manage Your Project’s Travel Needs and Costs
NUCA knows a good night’s sleep is what each of us look forward to at the end of a busy and successful day, so we’re offering a new member benefit to help you and your employees get that rest when you’re on the road.
Utility and excavation companies with teams that travel know how difficult it can be to manage workforce lodging and find places to stay that fit changing project needs. Starting fall 2021, NUCA members can now use our members-only lodging benefit to help manage their construction business travel needs and save money.
“A lot of us are on the road, negotiating proposals, developing new business and solving problems,” said Doug Carlson, NUCA’s CEO, who has been on the road this year expanding NUCA’s national reach. “And as we move forward from the pandemic, lodging is again going to become a major part of business travel. And as NUCA members expand their projects to new geographic areas, you’re going to want to have the best possible lodging arrangements for yourself or your employees on long-term projects. CLC Lodging is going to prove to be a highly valuable NUCA benefit for your company’s business travel.”
NUCA’s new partnership with CLC Lodging, the traveling construction team experts, can help you save time and money on hotels and corporate apartments at every step, from hotel reservations to hotel reconciliation and project reporting.
As more NUCA members increase their area of operations to take advantage of growing business and project opportunities—especially with more infrastructure resources heading your way—lodging requirements for executives or employees will start to take on increased importance. Lodging costs will need to be managed more carefully, so a travel partner who knows how to get the best deals and track expenses will prove invaluable.
CLC Lodging is trusted today by 1.2 million business travelers. “CLC Lodging has managed lodging needs for traveling teams in transportation, construction, emergency services, and other similar fields for more than 40 years.” said Ron Rogers, president of CLC Lodging. “We’ve worked to simplify workforce lodging for these teams by providing deeply discounted, pre-negotiated rates through our network of hotels without pre-payment or cancellation penalties, and providing credit card-free check-in options, comprehensive auditing and coded invoicing solutions.”
From hotel reservation to reporting needs, CLC Lodging is there to help NUCA members. You’ll gain instant access to pre-negotiated and discounted rates at over 45,000 hotels at every level of hotel comfort. You’ll empower your company’s travelers to find and book hotels in minutes by the easiest method that works for you: online, via the CLC app, direct with the hotel, or by calling CLC traveler support 24/7/365.
Your lodging management is simplified, too. Through CLC Lodging, you will gain full-service lodging management for project-based travelers and long-term stay programs. Their project negotiation experts will find and negotiate lodging options at any hotel, anywhere in North America. And corporate housing options are available on 30+ night projects, too.
Our new partnership will also allow NUCA members to control their lodging costs. Instant access to pre-negotiated rates across North America are at your fingertips. You can customize hotel directories by price, location, and amenities. You’ll gain total visibility into your lodging spend, identify every transaction and trend, and maintain travel policy adherence to reduce risks and budget surprises.
And because you’re a NUCA member, you can join for free! Sign up today and start experiencing your choice in lodging for your next business trip or for your employees working on remote jobsites.
