The 37,000-square-foot building at 108th Street and Giles Road will house the council’s current Omaha office and training center at 4910 G St. It will also house meeting and office space for local unions Carpenters Local 427, Millwrights Local 1463, and Interior Systems Local 1306, all of which have offices in Omaha. A branch office for Wilson-Mcshane Corp., which provides benefit funds for members, will also be housed there.

The council has a staff of about 125 throughout the region.”
