How to use trello to organize several jobs under 1 (of 3) lines of business

We have several Trello boards on our organizational account, here is an example:

Board: Rob & Jay 

Board: Operations

Board: Square Lake (Property)

Board: Woodward (Property)

Board: Construction

 

My problem is organizing our construction line of business. Our operations team can see all trello boards, and construction by itself has more than 12 active jobs. If I add 12 more boards our trello page will be a mess! Can I have a separate trello page for Construction only? For example:

Construction > Jobs >

Board: Happy's Detroit

Trello has Team Tables in Beta - check out the blog post

 

You may want to have a Construction team with separate boards pr active job and have the ability to view work by job (board) or by account (team table).

@Robert Kassa rather than trying to keep track of your board in Trello's native board overview, you can create a board called Construction projects, then create one card per project, with one board per project, linked to the card, so it's a "board of boards".

You can then track your progress on each project at a high level on this overview board, and at a micro level on each individual board.

This is actually the approach I demonstrate in my intro to Trellinator:

and the video on my BenkoBot page:

You can do it manually, though without the automation, just link a board to a card:
