CCA President’s report

perseverence and

collaboration Bill Black, CCA President During our 75th anniversary year as an organization we certainly experienced our share of challenges during our transition. Whether it was at the CCA, amongst our members, around our city, provincially, nationally, or globally, it was a full year with more than its own share of uncertainty. As always, we in the construction industry have felt the brunt of much of this and have sought to meet it with characteristic resilience and by leaning into the challenge. As we worked with Norm Kuntz and the Board throughout the year on various aspects of the transition, the CCA team remained focussed on ensuring that our events, education programs, and member services were maintained at the level our members expect and deserve. Despite changes in the staffing throughout the year, we were able to meet every deadline and deliver a full program while also breaking a few records along the way. I can say without a doubt that the cur-

rent team and our board is the combination on which we will build our future and it is a real privilege to work with all of them. In the year ahead, there are some guiding principles that we are relying on. Namely – when the times are challenging… • no matter what, do not neglect the BASICS • look for new OPPORTUNITIES and deliver • draw on your EXPERIENCE • face the REALITY of your current context • RESOLVE to overcome • remember that it will always be about the PEOPLE

BASICS We have had our own construction happening at CCA this year. We finished our much-needed exterior envelope maintenance and upgrades that began in 2018 and then continued with a long overdue renovation of our washrooms as well as upgrades to

our meeting rooms. Our space is now even better set up to serve our members in terms of meetings, education, and events and we hope you will come and visit us soon.

OPPORTUNITIES Renovations aside, throughout 2019 we have rallied around one simple but nagging question: “How does our Association need to consider our role in these current economic conditions and how do we respond with business empathy for our members?” One of our first steps in answering this question was to launch our Business Hub. With the goal to create an ecosystem of expertise in key areas of business such as human resources, strategy, IT, finance, etc., we hope to build on our initial offerings and assist our members in accessing the knowledge and expertise that can truly propel them as businesses in both the short and the long term. A large portion of our members do not have these services in-house and it is our hope that, through this resource, we can help them to access information and services in a scalable way that can keep them well informed and meet their needs while still managing costs.

EXPERIENCE Participating on the CCA Board as a Director and even as a Chair is a great privilege in terms of serving our members and the industry. Working with that same Board now as the CCA administration making all the things we care about happen is somewhat of a shift, but it absolutely takes that to the next level. This year has been one of learning and of uncovering how one takes nearly 40 years of experience being in the industry and redirects it into serving that same industry. This industry does provide those of us who chose it as a career with no shortage of experience either in our craft or in living the


Since our beginning almost 50 years ago, Custom Electric has grown to become one of the premier electrical contractors in Western Canada. We are a multi-disciplined contractor, providing electrical service, construction management, design build, design assist, building information modeling and prefabrication for the commercial, industrial, residential and service divisions.

Custom Electric has successfully completed a multitude of diverse projects. These include: • Rockyview General Hospital Expansion and Renovation • Calgary Courts Centre • Winsport Athletic & Ice Complex • Telus World of Science and Creative Kids Museum • Manulife Place • ATCO Commercial Centre • National Music Centre • WestJet Corporate Campus • YYC Baggage Handling System Replacement Custom Electric has incorporated a BIM/Prefabrication department to design and develop 3D models in collaboration with the project teams. Through the BIM process we are able to produce prefabricated material inhouse, resulting in increased productivity and efficiencies.

CCA President’s report

fact that “our industry is the barometer of the economy.” This was the statement in one of the first lectures we received in the construction college that I attended, Edinburgh’s equivalent of SAIT at the time, which is now Napier University. In my case, within four months of starting my first Quantity Surveying apprenticeship in Edinburgh in 1981, 40 per cent of the office was laid off. None of us knew what this really meant at first, but it soon sunk in. We were junior and cheap so somewhat safe, but we were shaped by such circumstances occurring so soon after leaving high school and that kind of wakeup call never leaves you. Over the six years that followed, we studied, we learned, and then just as we graduated, there was another economic tightening - we were let loose. We all found work but then again in 1991 tough times returned and I was back in the market looking for employment, which is when I chose to move to Canada. Long story short, several versions of that cycle later we are now sitting here in 2020 watching a similar situation unfold. Some are facing this for the first time and some for the

fifth or sixth. Too many of us know exactly how it feels but perhaps our experiences can enable us to help others as we navigate this together.

REALITY Despite the challenges of recent years, we are still here and have survived what may have been one of the toughest periods for the construction industry in Alberta in a few decades. As this has begun to shift from just another downturn into a new reality for more and more of us, it is beginning to have the expected ripple effect. It is galvanizing people and organizations into action. With national and global authorities along with special interest groups seemingly opposed to many of our interests and somewhat blind to our plight, we may as well get on with it. With austerity budgets from the province rippling down to municipalities and large buyers of construction services, we also continue to face the prospect of a prolonged loss of private investment and may not even have local resources to draw upon for work. With all this reality lining up

against a backdrop of media-fuelled hysteria and misinformation, the odds may seem to be stacked against us. There is, however, no point in waiting for the good times to come back and it is certainly not worth waiting for outside help. This has absolutely nothing to do with any separatist rhetoric — it is about survival within a reality that you cannot change while recognizing the influences in play. Adversity in all its forms has shown its hand and we have been dealt ours as it is — like it or not. Frustration and anger may be natural emotional responses, but generally they are not very productive. Affirmative action and informed decisions are needed and we will play our role.

RESOLVE We are also out of excuses. The General and Provincial Elections are long over, the pipelines are still not moving fast enough, and even if all that changed tomorrow the positive impacts would not be felt for several years. So, when circumstance seems fixed and out of your control, the only option left is to

improve your position within. There are construction projects and there is work — albeit at hotly contested rates — between too many participants leaving the “winner” with negligible margins. Despite that, organizations are securing work while learning new techniques and are improving on efficiency as they lean their organizations to fit within this economic reality. Those who are using the time to invest in reflection, strategy, innovation, and change are finding ways to strengthen their organizations and are beginning to look ahead with renewed optimism. Yes, the road ahead will likely be tough for some time yet but there is a path, there is a future, and there is a destination. Those who can evolve and survive in this current business climate will be some of the most robust versions of themselves that they have ever been, and that all creates the necessary resilience for what lies ahead. After almost 40 years in this industry, I have seen more than my fair share of shift and change. In contrast to other industries over the same period of time, I have also seen way more than I would like to see of resistance to

change within the industry itself. We simply cannot afford that position any more.

PEOPLE One thing that never changes is the people. Our industry is made up of some of the best people you could ever work alongside. With unmatched work ethic, passion, technical skill, and a distinct pride in what we do whether in the office or in the field, we have all the right characteristics needed to weather the situation. Our teams, our customers, and our colleagues will all be tested in the times ahead. But, as we have proved before, with leadership, commitment, and group effort we can make impossible things happen while growing and developing as professionals, individuals, and an industry. I sincerely wish that we could offer or find some short-term relief but that would be careless against so many unpredictable factors. What we can predict is that: • things will improve • things will absolutely have to change • unprecedented levels of collaboration are

going to be required amongst stakeholders who have historically existed as silos • people and companies will step up • our industry, our people, and our organizations will stand stronger and wiser as a result of the experience

And at CCA With the foundation that our new bylaws and governance will provide, combined with the strategic vision and goals that are being aggressively worked on, there is a new energy fuelling CCA that is much needed at this time. Your Board is comprised of some of the most competent and committed people I have seen in all my years of industry experience. We would never profess to have the answers, but we will be relentless in their pursuit. Together, we will listen to and work with our members as we move forward in ways we never have before, and with what we learn we will respond to the best of our ability and resources. For 2020 and beyond, we will need our best and we are committed to bringing it at all times. n

CCA CHAIR’S REPORT

engaging our community to

build better Norm Kuntz, CCA Chair The past year held many challenges for Alberta, our industry, and the Calgary Construction Association. Our first order of business was the transition of Bill Black from his interim position to the full-time dedicated President of our Association. Bill’s strengths have been an excellent fit in leading our organization through a period of change and renewal. He’s also shown an openness to coaching and professional development as he adjusts from the commercial world to champion a not-for-profit organization. I truly feel that Bill will be our next legacy employee executing the Board’s Strategic Plan while capably managing the staff and operations of the Calgary Construction Association.

Our May Retreat saw a continuation of the process of defining the path to ensure the CCA has the greatest possible impact in delivering value to the membership while being mindful of the harsh fiscal realities our businesses are all facing. Key pillars of advocacy, education, events, and opportunities for work were focused on along with the ongoing work of Builders, Owners, Consultants, Women in Construction, Young Construction Leaders, the Career Expo Committee, Buildworks, and the Lean Community of Practice. Several follow up sessions have been held to build on and refine the compiled pieces and create a solid strategic path for the CCA. This important work fits under the core purpose theme

of “Engaging our Community to Build Better”. Provincial and federal elections highlighted the need for ongoing advocacy to be positioned to lobby on issues of importance. CCA worked with the Alberta Construction Association (ACA), the Canadian Construction Association, and other local construction associations to make sure industry topics and concerns were raised during the campaigns at both levels. The ACA has taken advantage of the change in provincial government to bring industry issues to the forefront through direct meetings with many key ministers and public officials, participation in the Red Tape Reduction process, and was instrumental in the Prompt Payment Engagement Sessions being

launched. CCA continues to engage with the City of Calgary through their Industry Liaison Committee and strongly lobbied on the Green Line proposals. Work continues on contracts, prequalification process, benefit driven procurement, sustainable buildings, and other topics. A personal meeting with the new City Manager, David Duckworth, showed the promise of continued growth of our collaborative efforts. Our Governance Committee continued the work discussed at the 2019 AGM. A system was developed to handle the new electoral process put in place by the 2019 Bylaw changes. TNG Leaders was retained to undertake a governance review, report on current state, and make recommendations to the CCA based on best practices. This report will used as a foundation for the Committee to guide approved changes in structure and process identified while being mindful of the unique needs and strengths of our organization. The creation and growth of the Business Hub, centered at the CCA, offering members professional services and learning opportunities at an affordable cost is a reflection on the fact that most of our members are small

businesses without these internal capacities. We started with group education sessions, free to members, covering several areas in human resources and business strategy. Focus sessions are available for ownership and leadership teams to work exclusively on subjects and specific needs. Our goal is to establish a suite of professional services that members can use on a scalable range to suit their needs and budgets.

Education and Training

Our broad suite of courses were well subscribed and continue to promote knowledge and skill development in our industry. Calgary remains a leader in the Gold Seal Certification program developing professional management for the construction industry. Elearning is also growing as a delivery platform for many courses.

Women in Construction

Formed in 2012, our WiC Committee is designed to promote diversity and provide women in the construction industry with opportunities to add knowledge and skills, receive mentoring, network, and building peer

communities. WiC continued its “Exposed” series with “Thinking for Success” in April and “Strategies for Success” in October. The joint WiC/WCL golf tournament saw a strong turnout of superheroes and the occasional villain redefine the game.

Young Construction Leaders

The mission of the YCL is to provide a sustainable platform for Calgary’s Young Construction Leaders to build their careers through developing relationships, exchanging ideas and creating community through social, educational, and outreach initiatives. The YCL Committee is made up of individuals aged 35 and under that have a vested interest in volunteering and contributing their expertise to the construction community. YCL held the “Creating Connections” event in May, “Constructor Bowl” in June, “YYX Baggage System Tour” in October, and Lift 4.0 in November. Their energy was a big part of the success of the WiC/YCL tournament. On December 3rd, YCL marked The International Day of Persons with Disabilities by helping to build three accessibility ramps for display at City Hall.

CCA CHAIR’S REPORT

Builders Owners Consultants

Our OAEC group transformed into the BOC in 2019. In June, a facilitated session was held using the Lean A3 Format to identify and define the prime issues forming the framework for the ongoing activities of the BOC. It was an excellent example of learning and sharing in a collaborative, team environment. In November, CCA presented the second annual BOC Development Summit hosting public and private organizations speaking on trends, challenges, and opportunities in the current and future development in our

city. It also featured a panel on accessibility in the built environment that was conceived and organized by the YCL Committee. BOC is evolving into an excellent forum to share ideas on improving practices.

Lean Community of Practice CCA continues to host and facilitate the growth of this community. Lean coffees are well attended and continue to expand on the knowledge base for use of Lean in Construction. This collaborative and idea sharing model continues to grow in popularity.

Education Fund

The Education Fund was established in 2001 and continues to support the future of the construction industry by administering over 70 annual scholarship programs. Our Education Fund distributes approximately $80,000 in scholarships and bursaries each year. Our Education “Fun-Draiser” Golf Tournament raised over $60,000 last August which all went back into Fund reserves.

Construction Career Expo

This annual event was held in October with a turnout of over 2,400 students. Exhibitors gave information and hands on experiences with the many potential jobs in the construction industry. The BMO Centre was filled with energy and feedback from schools was tremendously positive.

Buildworks continues to expand on our procurement and business development platform since the merger of Coolnet with its Saskatchewan and Manitoba counterparts. The cross-provincial platform increases project visibility resulting in easier access to upcoming opportunities. Buildworks continues to be an important source in finding work for many members. Our networking and philanthropic events were well attended and supported over the past year. Our Spring Classic Golf Tournament was sold out and succeeded in raising over $18,000 for Wellspring Calgary. The Stampede Buck ‘n Build saw over 1,000 attendees including many elected and public officials enjoy some casual networking. The CCA Christmas Social was a tasteful event that showed off the recent renovations to our building and the increased capacity for room rentals for members and to host collaborative events. I’ve been proud to serve as the Chair of the Calgary Construction Association for the 2019-20 year. I’m pleased to share the substantial progress and growth we’ve made in many areas. Our successes have been the result of the committed engagement and hard work performed by the Board and staff of the CCA. Our organization has benefited greatly by having motivated and dedicated employees that are supported in their efforts by a strong volunteer group of industry leaders. I thank them all for their support in my term as Chair and all members for their ongoing support of our organization. n

The Owners, Architects, Engineers & Contractors (OAEC) was established 6 years ago to bring together all members of the industry in forums designed to facilitate dialogue and work towards a better industry. As we realized the success of these efforts and learned from the interactions and the work that came out of these events, the group decided that we needed to broaden this to more than just an annual event and more activity was needed on an ongoing basis to drive momentum. Out of these discussions came the more inclusive and less hierarchical Builders Owners & Consultants (BOC) group with the collective goal to Transform Together. Building off the legacy of OEAC this group will continue to provide a safe place for multi-stakeholder dialogue and initiatives that will identify the challenges and opportunities facing the Design & Construction Industry and then facilitate the work to bring about meaningful change.

Leading by example

U of C’s MacKimmie Complex sets new standard By Melanie Franner The $290-million MacKimmie project may have been part of the University of Calgary’s 10-year capital plan, but rendering it into a shining example of sustainability is a more recent evolution of the program.

A beacon of possibility “Guided by our Institutional Sustainability Strategy,” says Boris Dragicevic, associate vice president of facilities development at the University of Calgary. “We would normally be looking at LEED Gold minimum for this project, but the Canada Green Building Council was looking for organizations willing to participate on its net-zero carbon program, so we jumped at the opportunity.” The MacKimmie project is one of 16 across the country designed to test Canada Green Building Council’s (CaGBC) new Zero Carbon Building Standard. The new standard is the first green building program to make carbon emissions the key indicator for building performance. It calls for a highly energy-efficient building that produces on site, or procures, carbon-free renewable energy to offset the annual carbon emissions associated with building operations. “The MacKimmie Tower will be a landmark piece for the University of Calgary campus,” says Beau Brown, senior project manager, Stuart Olson. “This is an advanced building that uses sophisticated technology to streamline day-to-day operation. It is poised to be one of the first net-zero carbon buildings in the country, and as such, is leading the way for Alberta and Canada.”

Achieving new heights Construction on the MacKimmie project, which includes the existing tower, block, and link, began in 2016 with work on the Tower. “We got seed money in 2016 to start the design,” says Dragicevic. “We started demolition work on the tower in 2017 and completed the re-construction by 2019. Work on the adjoining MacKimmie

Life learning The MacKimmie Complex is a leading example of sustainability in both building design and maintenance. Dragicevic reports that the new building will take $32 million off of the university’s deferred maintenance books. The project will also offer an additional capacity for 500 new full-load equivalent students, a repurposing of classrooms and academic faculties, and more. “We have 30 other secondary projects spawned by this one redevelopment,” says Dragicevic, who adds that even the sanitary and storm lines in Swann Mall have been dug up and replaced to accommodate the new building. “We also plan to use the MacKimmie Complex for our own learnings.” Dragicevic sees the MacKimmie Complex acting as a learning lab for post secondaries and other institutions across Canada. “This is what we see our mission being,” he says. “To be a leader in the development

Some of these are state-of-theart to the industry, but we have been fortunate to partner with well-equipped trades to successfully implement these products and systems throughout the project.” Brown points to the tower’s curtain wall as an example of this. “The building uses a fully operable, integrated and automated curtain-wall system,” he says. “The double façade has a one-metre thermal plenum space between it to better regulate building temperature, and the external façade, which features rounded corners, is diagonally installed. This is a very intricate project that has generated a lot of interest among not only the community, but our industry.” Although the MacKimmie Tower may be considered a “once-in-a-lifetime” project for some, it is likely a precursor for what is to come. Brown envisages many similar undertakings down the road. “I suspect that we will see a lot more projects like this in the years to come. The good news is that the more buildings built to net zero, the more Canadians can do their part to promote sustainability. “Back at the beginning of this project, the net zero element caught us off guard,” concludes Dragicevic. “At the time, we didn’t realize how big it would be. Now that we know, we’re very happy with our decision to get on that bus. Although the building isn’t totally commissioned out yet, all indicators show that we should meet, if not exceed, our goals. You can’t do better than that.” n

MESSAGE

update from the alberta construction association By Ken Gibson, Executive Director Alberta Construction Association’s leadership shifts from one past Calgary Construction Association chair to another: from Ian Reid to Fred Vine. Under the leadership of these chairs, ACA’s Board has approved three priorities: influence the government’s policy agenda; support development of member capabilities; and advance industry interests with government procurement.

Influencing Government

ACA advocacy is rooted in the fact that many Alberta families rely on a healthy construction industry, as one in ten working Albertans directly earn their living in construction (240,000+ workers), with thousands more employed in related services and industry. Since the 2019 provincial election, ACA has written the Premier and key ministers aligning their platform of efficient government, red tape reduction, job creation, and delivering on a transparent long-term capital plan with industry issues. ACA has met

with new ministers to advance our advocacy: • Service Alberta to advocate for a review of construction payment legislation; • Advanced Education to propose revitalizing the apprenticeship board; • Infrastructure to discuss the proposed Act, P3s, and possible red tape reduction initiatives; • Labour to advocate for changes to OHS and WCB and to propose partnerships for workforce recruitment, development, and retention. In each case, government ministers have been receptive to ACA advocacy, with the opportunity for ACA to play a major role in consultations anticipated for 2020. ACA is pleased to note that past chairs Paul Verhesen and Paul Heyens have each received appointments to the Skills for Jobs Task Force, charged with finding ways to expand and strengthen apprenticeship education and skilled trades opportunities to meet market demand.

Service Alberta has commenced a review of the Builders Lien Act and prompt payment, and ACA is working closely with the Calgary Construction Association and other stakeholders to achieve much needed reform to ensure improved speed of payment. ACA supports the reintroduction of the option of banked overtime at 1:1 and is working with the government to revisit changes introduced by the previous government to occupational health and safety, the WCB. ACA continues to hear from members that not all of the changes fit the unique nature of construction work – weather conditions, remote locations, project-based work where the role for one trade may be affected by the completion of work by other trades. Our advocacy focus remains squarely on two themes: advocating for sustainable, predictable investment so that our employees have steady predictable careers of choice, and advocacy to minimize unintended consequences that reduce the opportunity

ACA continues to engage Alberta Infrastructure and Alberta Health Services in dialogue to ensure efficient and fair procurement and project delivery processes. Industry responded to the challenge made by the Minister of Infrastructure, Prasad Panda, to improve efficient delivery by suggesting areas to review such as procurement processes including the current emphasis on selecting low bid, standard contracts and inappropriate risk allocation; insufficient resources for complete design for tender documents; scope changes post tender; payment terms; stability in spend and investment in workforce to avoid labour shortages; and more collaborative forms of project delivery. ACA has also requested representation on the Procurement Council recommended by the MacKinnon panel. ACA’s workshops on the implications of onerous non-standard contract terms has now completed phase 2, engaging in dialogue directly with owners to better understand how the contracting industry prices onerous terms, and fostering dialogue to find win-win solutions for protecting owner interests while providing fair and profitable project opportunities for industry. ACA will be publishing a short video to highlight the University of Calgary’s support for CCDC contracts.

Imagine a 500-plus stall parkade across five levels with a space for Calgary innovators. This $80-million development – called the 9th Avenue Parkade & Innovation Centre – is currently under construction along 9 Avenue SE at 3 Street SE in Calgary’s East Village. Conceptualized as an important amenity for downtown neighbours, it also serves as an accommodation for multimodal transportation users with bicycle parking. Now, imagine the 9th Avenue Parkade & Innovation Centre in the future and what it may look like in 10, 15, or 20 years from now. For Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC), the parkade is designed for future conversion into commercial or residential uses, premised on the notion that Calgarians will also lessen their reliance on car use as further amenities and services develop in the neighbourhood. “In 2019, CMLC, along with our partners Calgary Parking Authority (CPA) and Platform, recognized that there was a practical need for parking to service the East Village community,” said Clare LePan, vice president, marking & communications for CMLC. “While this is true, as the development in the area continues and global transportation trends lessen, the demand for traditional parking structures and parking requirements will shift as well.” Instead of relying on a crystal ball to see into the future, LePan and CMLC saw the 9th Avenue Parkade & Innovation Centre as an opportunity to serve present-day needs but to be designed in such a way as to adapt to future demands. “It made sense to maximize this investment by ensuring its relevance well into the future by taking an outside-the-box and forward-looking approach,” LePan added. “This type of adaptability in planning and design is becoming more and more crucial because sustainability, not only environmental but social and economic, is quickly becoming less of a want and more of a necessity for urban centres to thrive. Also, technologies and industries are advancing at such a rapid rate that planning based on what we anticipate future needs to be is nearly futile, while implementing adaptability measures that can react to future conditions is far more effective.” The 9th Avenue Parkade & Innovation Centre helps to contribute to and aligns with CMLC’s efforts in delivering on their master plan vision for East Village and the future Culture & Entertainment District in the neighbouring East Victoria Park. “We are in the business of constructing and managing infrastructure projects that enhance and improve the communities in which we operate,” says LePan.

The project is envisioned as an important neighbourhood amenity, in addition to a gathering hub for a burgeoning technology community. Construction is halfway complete in what is a two-year construction program. Currently, the truss system and servicing have been completed, with concrete work and a curtain wall set for installation in the summer of 2020. By the tail end of 2020, the Calgary Parking Authority and Platform will gain occupancy for a public opening in the first quarter of 2021. Supermetal Structures Inc., who supplies, designs, fabricates, and erects structural steel, is supporting the structure with steel fabrication and installation services in addition to design assistance. According to Shaune Turpin, regional manager of Supermetal Structures Inc., he and his team had to get creative when responding to site challenges during construction. “The stability of the trusses during other construction activities due to the limitations of the site were challenges that required some outof-the box thinking from all parties involved,” says Turpin referring to the parkade being built over top of the existing LRT tunnel which

has significant load limitations. “The steel trusses span over the tunnel below and in their final state will be encased in concrete. The steel trusses had to be installed in a way that provided minimum load on the ground below during erection stage, but when fully erected had to support each other as well as the concrete and formwork that would encase them as the construction goes vertical. An integrated bracing system was developed to attach to available surfaces but not to impede daily construction on site. As the project stages are completed, braces are removed in sequence.” LePan says that the completed project will combine an expert service provider in the Calgary Parking Authority with a group of innovation leaders at Platform, who are driving the technology industry in the city. “Both will be operating in one unconventional and futureembracing space designed to integrate with the public realm,” she says. The public realm, as envisioned by CMLC, is bustling with residents and visitors who enjoy a mix of uses, including residential, commercial, office, retail, and hospitality. In their developing East Village, an urban format full-service grocery store is set to open in 2020 affixed


to a purpose-built rental tower situated adjacent to a bike lane with circuitry to nearby attractions such as Studio Bell, a national music museum. “The 9th Avenue Parkade & Innovation Centre is another milestone that adds layers to how people experience East Village and the east end of Calgary now and a century down the road,” says LePan. What kinds of commercial and residential development does LePan foresee, when the parkade eventually evolves? “Adaptability and planning to react to conditions that may not be fully understood in the present is key, this rings true not just in relation to design but for the marketplace as well,” she says. “The environment in which people choose to work is disrupting the commercial market around the world. Retail spaces are increasingly becoming showrooms for online purchasing, and warehousing will look very different and move out of the shadows of industrial areas in the near future. As the culture and entertainment district builds out and North

American cities become more populous, there may be significant demand for inner-city residential offerings. The market at the time of conversion will determine the product typology. The building design will enable flexibility.” The 9th Avenue Parkade & Innovation Centre might just be the exact prototype needed for cities to plan for disruption. As explained by LePan, creative and significant public and private sector collaboration is key to developing programmatic synergy to a space, enabling greater impact for more people. “When you’re wading through unchartered waters with a talented and expert project team where there is full confidence that the solutions will be resourceful and creative,” says LePan. “That’s when you know you’re on track to achieve what you set out to do.” To learn more about the 9th Avenue Parkade & Innovation Centre, visit: www.calgarymlc.ca/9th-avenue-se-parkade. n

Construction of ALT Hotel marks arrival of

Marco Group to Calgary

In 2019, the Atlantic Canadian-based contractor Marco Group returned to Calgary to begin construction on their fourth project in the city, the ALT Hotel West Campus. Located in the growing University District in the city’s northwest, the 15-storey hotel will

60

Calgary Construction Association

contain 155 rooms and two levels of underground parking. The project is designed by the Quebec architectural firm Lemay Michaud and is scheduled to be complete in the spring of 2021. As construction on the hotel begins, the

building’s underground parkade is already complete. This portion of the project was constructed by well-known Calgary contractor Avi Urban under a separate contract. The parkade will be shared with Avi Urban’s August development, an adjoining mixed-use building currently under construction. This is the fourth hotel Marco Group has constructed for Groupe Germain and Lemay Michaud, and the second in which they have worked alongside Avi Urban. Marco worked with all three firms during the construction of the ALT Hotel East Village, which opened in 2017, and completed ALT Hotels in St. John’s, N.L. and Halifax, N.S. “Groupe Germain and Avi Urban have very high standards,” says Allan MacIntosh, president of Marco Group. “We are happy to count ourselves among their trusted contractors.” With a project resume that includes the above-mentioned ALT Hotel East Village, the Grey Eagle Resort Complex, and the recent expansion to the Grey Eagle Casino, Marco Group is no stranger to Calgary. When it came time to mobilize for West Campus Project, the company decided to take the next logical step and open a district office in the region.


We build communities, connections and legacies

As builders, we are driven to make a positive difference in the communities where we work and live. One of the ways we achieve this is by building up our city’s infrastructure with projects that promote sustainability and serve Calgarians, like the recently completed Stoney Transit Facility and our Bus Rapid Transit MAX projects. At PCL, we are proud of our projects because they connect Calgarians, and they connect us to Calgarians.

WATCH US BUILD AT PCL.COM


“Since we have built strong relationships with several clients in the region, we decided the best way to serve them is to have a permanent presence in the area,” says MacIntosh. “We are very happy to have hired Calgary construction professional Mike Morello as our district manager and, with his guidance, look forward to expanding our operations in the western region.”

This expansion is only one part of a period­ of significant growth for the company. Since its inception in 1979, Marco Group has grown from a single office in St. John’s, N.L., to three offices and a client list that extends from Newfoundland to Alberta. The company is now a trusted partner on P3 projects, is currently collaborating with CCA members Johnson Controls Ltd. and PCL Construc-

tion Management Inc. on the $700 million Corner Brook Acute Care Hospital, and is nearing completion on the $65 million Corner Brook Long-Term Care Facility. As Marco Group begins this new chapter in Calgary, they look forward to building new relationships and providing quality construction services throughout the region. n

Azimuth Builders Ltd. chooses not to follow the conventional ethos of the construction industry.

Instead, we strive to find ways to make the construction industry better, and improve the standards of quality without increasing costs. We are the maverick construction company that stands out from the crowd with our potential and principals. Instead of merely gaining recognition for sheer sales volume, our goal is to make real connections with our clients, and provide truly customized building solutions that meet their specific needs. In short, we aim to offer the same level of commitment to our clients that they invested in building their company from the ground up. Based in Calgary, Azimuth Builders is a progressive new Commercial / Industrial Design Build company specialising in Turnkey Builds with fast completion schedules and below market value pricing. The main services Azimuth can provide for you are: • Full Turnkey Design Builds • Drafting and Design • Permitting and Application • Project Management • General Contracting and All Stages of Construction At Azimuth builders we excel at a variety of building systems: Pre-Engineered Metal Building Systems Pre-engineered construction is quick and efficient, but tend to be a simpler design. Each component is fabricated off-site and the steel structures are delivered to site to be quickly erected. Since the framing components are pre-fabricated, foundations are accurately determined based on weight – unlike in conventional construction. As a result, pre-engineered buildings have a quicker project turnaround and can often be delivered within two to four months (as compared to six to ten months for conventional builds). Roof systems are usually pitched, but can also be flat to satisfy your design requirements. Steelway Building Systems, a Canadian owned company that specializes in designing and manufacturing the highest quality conventional and hybrid steel buildings. Conventional (Traditional or Weld up) Steel Buildings A conventional steel building offers more complex buildings with more flexible design options and the ability to do multi-story buildings (three to five levels) with pitched or flat roofing systems. Conventional construction typically comes with higher costs and longer construction schedules compared to pre- engineered building systems, but allow for a true custom design that will meet your needs in every way. Hybrid Building Systems A hybrid building usually consists of conventional steel office framing and a pre-engineered shop. This design allows for a more modern looking front office area while still keeping costs down and maintaining the integrity and flexibility of pre-engineered construction. Roof systems can be pitched, flat, or a combination of both. Precast Concrete Buildings These buildings are considered the premium choice for high-end construction and structural integrity. While other materials deteriorate, precast concrete continues to grow stronger over time. The insulating value and energy efficiency of concrete panels outperform all other products without creating additional costs to the building. Precast concrete buildings allow for the fastest construction time, but can also be more expensive compared to pre-engineered or conventional steel buildings. Roof systems are usually flat, but can be pitched to save cost. Regardless of what building system best meets your needs, Azimuth Builders will work with you to create a custom design that falls within your budget and stands out from your neighbours inside and out. Be it sizeable glassing, stone finishes, metal panels, EIFS stucco, or any combination of exterior touches, we have the finishes to make your building one of a kind. Azimuth Builders Ltd. is a leader in safety, with COR Certification through the Alberta Construction Safety Association. We make it a point to go above and beyond basic safety requirements and ensure each member of our staff has the training, supplies, and support to keep the site safe each and every day. Even our office staff is required to participate in the program. From safety meetings and project site planning to ongoing training for supervisors and ensuring that proper safety equipment is available for employees and trades, at Azimuth Builders we take safety seriously.

Rivers Run Through Them Rivers District weaves together districts into one community hub

By Jason Syvixay The Rivers District Master Plan, which sets a long range vision for East Victoria Park and provides direction on open space, transportation, character, and development, is officially underway with a foundational investment by the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC) of $150 million. The Plan boundary includes Stampede Park and is bordered on the north by 10th Ave SE, the Elbow River around its east and south ends, and 1st Street SE. It includes distinct character areas for agriculture, large events, festivals, culture, entertainment, education, and residential uses. The comprehensive vision for the district aligns with the Stampede Park Concept Plan and Beltline Area Redevelopment Plan, recently amended in 2019. The CMLC, the seminal agency responsible for delivering on the Plan, sees the early engagement of stakeholders and the community-at-large as one of the linchpins for successful plan implementation. Boundary for the Rivers District includes the northern boundary of 10th Avenue SE, 1st Street SE on the west side, and the Elbow River on the east side, which wraps around and includes Stampede Park.

house District, Gateway West, Neighbourhood Centre, Riverfront Residential, Culture, Entertainment, and Education, and Agriculture, Large Events, and Festivals. The Warehouse District makes use of restored warehouses to create a unique identity and experience for locals and residents, while the Neighbourhood Centre boasts residential towers, office buildings, hotels, restaurants, and shops. The Riverfront Residential character area turns its gaze to medium-density housing situated in close proximity to transit, downtown, and trails, in contrast to the Gateway West area which features high-density residential towers. The Culture, Entertainment, and Education character area leverages an expanded BMO Centre, future event centre and calls for a dynamic street life, programmed with festivals, plazas, and parks. To provide connections to Stampede Park, the Agriculture, Large Events, and Festivals character area proposes a pedestrian and vehicular linkage. In developing the Rivers District Master Plan, the CMLC organized a working committee comprised of area stakeholders, landowners, and community representatives, tasked with developing and guiding the master plan process, which included a six-month public engagement program. Throughout the process, Calgarians were asked to provide their feedback on, and aspirations for, an emerging urban culture and entertainment district. The vision is to attract 8,000 new residents into a community “approximately four million square feet of absorbable mixed-use development in Calgary’s entertainment and cultural district.” Partnerships are necessary to actualize the vision for The Rivers District, says LePan. “A lot of our work at the CMLC is the result of collaborative partnerships. Wheth-


er it is our development partnerships with groups like the Calgary Stampede or future developer partnerships with the private sector, these partnerships are what bring the vision to life.” With 286 acres of development potential, the master plan was approved in 2018. In 2020, the event centre and BMO Centre are set to move ahead along with major infrastructure projects like the 17th Avenue Extension. “These city building projects are a big step toward realizing the master plan vision and are also catalysts for spurring additional development in the area,” says LePan. When all anchor tenants and developments are completed, the Rivers District will accommodate and support Calgarians interested in living, working, and playing within close proximity to the downtown, their places of work, and other amenities and services. “The Rivers District Master Plan will prove to be successful when it brings together residents who will live in the community with the visitors who enjoy its amenities and programs,” says LePan. “Today, there are currently about 2,800 residents in the area and the master plan vision calls for nearly 8,000 new residents and four million square feet of mixed-use development space. This growth comes through a mix of residential product, retail, commercial, public space, and amenities that create a complete community.” To learn more about The Rivers District, visit www.calgarymlc.ca/projects-landingpage#projects-intro-1. n

Calgary Construction Association offers new program to help smaller member companies get a step ahead By Mark Halsall

Owners of small businesses are typically spread pretty thin, wearing many hats and taking on different roles as they strive to grow their businesses with few resources and little time. It’s a demanding job that for many that has become even more challenging with the current downturn in the Alberta construction market.

68

Calgary Construction Association

Business Hub, established by the Calgary Construction Association (CCA) last fall, aims to link CCA members with specialty business service providers in a number of key areas including human resources, business strategy, IT, financing, banking, and marketing and communications. “It’s a very fresh idea,” says Bill Black,

president of the CCA. “Our role is not to be a service provider, but to be a connector and help our members connect with the knowledge and expertise that they don’t typically have in house.” Black says the goal of the Business Hub program is to enable CCA member companies, with the help of a high-level network of


business experts, design their own set of services that best fits their specific needs. The process starts with free education sessions, followed by exclusive focus sessions with one of the Business Hub service providers for companies that opt to take the next step. Once a company has a clear picture of its needs, it can then choose from a range of scalable services provided by Business Hub partners which are available on a cost-effective ‘pay-to-play’ basis. Elevated HR Solutions and Results Canada are the first two Calgary business service providers to partner up with the Association for the Business Hub initiative. Both organizations have worked closely with the CCA for the past two years. Elevated HR Solutions offers a range of human resources services in areas such as recruitment, payroll and benefits, policies and procedures, and HR strategy. “We’re focused mostly on small- to medium-sized companies which don’t have an in-house HR manager, and we can provide increased capacity to large companies for special projects,” says Rebecca Wood, chief revenue officer at Elevated HR Solutions. So far, Elevated HR Solutions has held workshops for CCA members on employment agreements and termination procedures and on mental health and well-being in the workplace. More information sessions are planned for the spring. “The workshops provide value in that you can get some real-life tools and support which you can implement right away, so that you wouldn’t necessarily need to hire somebody,” Wood says. “I think that just helps move the needle in terms of increasing the professionalism within the companies that participate.” Results Canada is an innovative business development firm with offices in Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver that helps companies achieve their strategic goals and unleash their full potential. The firm held a group education session for Business Hub in the fall and two more are planned for 2020. Jeff White, business execution specialist with Results Canada’s Calgary branch, says as a Business Hub partner, his company can help CCA members accelerate their business

models and become more competitive. “Really, what it comes down to is taking a company’s current reality, having them come up with an envisioned future, and then helping them get to that envisioned future,” he says. CCA member, Armour Equipment Sales & Rentals Ltd., has been using the services of both Elevated HR Solutions and Results Canada for a few years — a move that has reaped huge rewards for the Calgary scaffolding company. “They’re a relatively small scaffolding equipment rental operation that have really undergone a significant image and cultural change,” says Black. “The way their business looks, feels, and operates now is a bit of a testament to what utilizing some of these services can do to help your company.” Charlie Maynard, owner of Amour Equipment, says one of the important services that Results Canada provided was to help his company chart a new leadership path. “In the past it’s always been myself, the owner of the company, determining the direction of our business and then moving on from there,” says Maynard. “Now, we have a new

leadership team that we’re developing, and we want them to take part and contribute to the vision of the company.” He adds that after initial weekly meetings, his company now gets together with Results Canada four or five times a year for full-day planning and strategy sessions. “Trying to communicate and execute business decisions through just one leader is very difficult. Results Canada is able to provide a great format for leadership development and disciplined execution.” According to Maynard, Elevated HR Solutions and Results Canada share the view that people are the key to business success. “Both organizations really put an emphasis on people first,” says Maynard. “They help develop your practices around the genuine needs and well-being of your people, knowing that those practices will lead to a better return on investment in the long run and a more sustainable business model.” For more information about the Calgary Construction Association’s Business Hub, visit www.cgyca.com/membership/businesshub or call 403-291-3350. n

Prompt payment CCA advocated for, and was successful in, having the government use a consultative process prior to finalizing legislation on federal prompt payment. Following the report in June 2018, which addressed CCA’s concerns and recommendations, prompt payment legislation was officially introduced on April 8, 2019 as the Federal Prompt Payment for Construction Work Act, a sub-section of Bill C-97, the Budget Implementation Act of 2019. We are proud to announce that the Federal Prompt Payment for Construction Work Act received royal assent on June 21, 2019. The date of its official enactment remains undetermined, but, according to various related

The government and Canadian public, however, are not aware of how much you do in support of your communities; whether it is hiring at-risk youth or organizing food drives. With over 4.5 million impressions since we started the campaign last summer, together we are raising the profile of the industry as a good corporate citizen and an employer of choice!

BUILDING A NEW ECONOMY: THE IMPACT OF CALGARY’S CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY ON PLACEMAKING By Calgary Economic Development At its most basic level, placemaking is about the reinvention of space to attract and retain groups of people. As many of you are aware, Calgary is at a point of reinvention. As businesses continue to invest in, develop, and adopt the disruptive technologies of the future – the way we build out our city is being disrupted too. At the core of this reinvention is a need to acknowledge that the future is not knowable. In fact, it is highly unpredictable. It is why Calgary Economic Development (CED) and the community-created economic strategy, Calgary in the New Economy, focuses on the underlying drivers of prosperity – talent, innovation, business environment, and place. It is why we purposely position Calgary to be the disruptors, rather than the disrupted, in an increasingly uncertain world. We are confident that embracing the disruption from digitization throughout the economy is the best way to futureproof our city. By leveraging existing strengths in providing the world with clean energy, safe and secure food, the efficient movement of goods and people, and better health solutions, we are confident Calgary and Alberta will continue to grow. We will also continue to be a place where anchor projects are built to the highest standards, on budget and on time.

Research recently conducted by CED indicates future construction opportunities in tourism and the creative industries sector will slowly provide new work for our worldrenowned skilled tradespeople. More significantly, we know the construction industry is quickly adapting to the future of work and changes in the market. As our economy becomes more diversified, the construction sector is on the front lines of building out more energy efficient spaces and keeping up with fast-changing customer preferences. Calgary will always be a global energy centre, but we know a more efficient oil and gas industry will not be the job creator it was previously. We still have the highest concentration of head offices in Canada in traditional sectors, including energy, transportation, agribusiness, and emerging areas like health and life sciences that create opportunities for new businesses to do industry-disrupting work. We also have the third fastest growing flexible office market in the country, doubling in size since 2017, in response to new economic conditions. We are confident that demand for construction services will rise as we continue to attract people and companies to Calgary in need of residential, commercial, and institu-

tional buildings. There is just under one million square feet of space under construction in the city’s industrial real estate market, and we expect to see gains in renovation activity and housing starts over the course of 2020. With innovative placemaking initiatives currently under construction like the Platform Innovation Centre, Dorian Hotel, and BMO Centre Expansion, as well as future projects like the Events Centre and Rivers District, Green Line LRT, and upgrades to Peter Lougheed Hospital, we know that we can count on you to deliver a brighter future for Calgary. CED is committed to working with partners in the private sector and all orders of government to ensure we advocate for the business-friendly policies that will attract investment, bring more construction projects online, and reduce regulation to ensure agility for workers and employers. We are grateful to our colleagues in the construction industry as we know the incredible amount of risk and stress it takes to deliver landmark projects that make a city a great place to live, work, and play. It is for these reasons we know you will join us in building a new economy that maintains Calgary’s position as one of the most livable cities on the planet. n

Building excellence with

Gold Seal

Are you a construction management professional looking to build your skills, credibility and career? Gold Seal Certification – the nationally-recognized industry standard for certification of Canada’s construction management professionals – brings many benefits to the individuals who attain it, from skills development to industry credibility, career advancement, solid connections, and more.

Gold Seal for individuals – certified excellence Gold Seal construction management professionals have attained the highest standard of excellence in the industry, have proven industry experience, and are held in the highest regard. For them, their GSC means a lot. “People see the Gold Seal Certificate on

my wall and say ‘you’re not just someone who stepped on the jobsite and began bossing people around’. You clearly have education and experience and that is valuable,” says Zachary Ponto, GSC, health, safety and environment advisor with Cana Construction.

and other ongoing education and growth. “It’s showing an understanding and willingness to learn, because at the end of the day, if we just assume we know everything, the industry will go nowhere,” says Helen Claridge, GSC, project manager with Akela Construction.

Earning excellence

Earning an edge

And when you earn your Gold Seal Certified (GSC) credential, you earn a lot: you demonstrate excellence through certified experience and nationally-recognized validation of your skills, competence and knowledge; you build trust by gaining valuable ethics knowledge; and you keep pace with the industry through professional development, skills development, leadership development

You’re also empowered by building confidence through real-world experience, constant improvement, and peer recognition. You’re not alone when you make connections with a network of well over 10,000 respected peers and feel part of a large and inclusive group of like-minded professionals. All that stands you apart and gives you a powerful competitive edge.

When you fill your roster with GSC professionals, you’re showcasing your own professionalism to the world and highlighting the excellence of your employees. “In my family business, the GSC has always been an important aspect for the company because it’s an asset for the company. We value it immensely and know it’s a great thing to have for ongoing education,” said Teri Urban, GSC, safety coordinator for her family’s general contracting firm. “I’m going out and I’m making sure I have the extra education and that I’m striving to be my best, which in turn helps the company get projects.”

Attract and retain excellence Companies that build Gold Seal Certification into their hiring and training practices demonstrate that they are committed to the professional development of their employees and show that they are willing to invest in the ongoing education and advancement of their staff. That’s good for recruitment and great for retention.

Make a difference with GSC At the end of the day, Gold Seal Certification can make all the difference at decision time. Tim Casler, GSC, agrees, “When the company I work for is pre-tendering or applying for a project, having a GSC supervisor is a pretty big thing.”

24/7 Parts and Service Support Protect your work and workers with Cratex’s professional shrink wrap services. Construction sites are susceptible to many elements that can cause damage and delays, especially water damage. Protect large scale projects with specially made shrink wrap that shields facilities and work sites during all seasons. Shrink wrap sheets are heat welded together which creates a drum tight shield, preventing holes or gaps usually found in traditional sheeting. The shrink wrap is made out of 100% high great virgin resin.

WESTMAN VILLAGE Mitsubishi Electric’s largest Canadian multi-unit residential village Westman Village is a new development located in the community of Mahogany and directly backs onto Mahogany Lake. The project thoughtfully weaves convenience, diversity, and accessibility into an all-inclusive suburban community concept. Redefining the way new homes are built, bought, and lived in, the carefully designed community includes condominiums, townhomes, seniors’ residences, and long-term leasing condos. The five product types feature desirable amenities, connectivity, and concierge services and many of the prospective new residents and homeowners are typically downsizing. To offer them an attractive product, the units needed to be quiet and the buildings had to create a seamless transition with top-quality products that would meet high expectations, including everything from the finishes to the heating

By Melanie Franner It is estimated that approximately 5,000 military veterans in Canada are homeless. For David Howard, that’s 5,000 too many. Many military veterans encounter hardships as they attempt to adjust back into civilian life and face crisis which can lead them down the path toward homelessness. In an effort to support the men and women who risked their lives to protect others, Howard partnered with Calgary business leader and philanthropist, Murray McCann, to create the Homes for Heroes Foundation. The charitable organization is dedicated to helping homeless military veterans transition back into society. Thanks to the generous support of many community partners, ATCO Village – a housing community for veterans – is now a reality in Calgary. Each of the 15 modular homes measures 280 square feet and offers all of the amenities found in a regular-sized house, however, the small footprint requires less energy and fewer operating costs. The new village includes a resource centre and community garden to encourage residents to meet and work together. The community also features an on-site, full-time counsellor, central amenity/resource centre, suite for visiting family members, and peer-to-peer support programs all on professionally maintained grounds with easy access to public transportation. “The goal is to provide a community of peers for military veterans who have fallen on hard times and to provide the services and counselling necessary to help get them back on their feet and back into society,” says Howard.


United we stand ATCO Village is the culmination of several organizations coming together to donate resources and time. “This community has been built on the generosity of Canadians,” says Howard. “It’s a wonderful example of Canadians helping Canadians.” One of the companies that leapt at the opportunity to get involved was ATCO, who supported the new initiative with a $1.5 million gift-in-kind that translated into the design, engineering, manufacturing, delivery, and installation of the modular homes. “ATCO has a long history in support of the armed forces,” says Andy Ostrowski, advisor, project development, ATCO. Each of the modular-constructed homes took approximately 250 hours to build, and they feature ample natural light, high ceilings, skylights, and an open feel. The homes are engineered for enhanced energy efficiency, environmental performance, and to minimize operational costs for residents. They are described as being 35 per cent more energy efficient when compared to homes built to the National Building Code (2015). This is due, in part, to hybrid electric water heaters, spray foam insulated floors, and window and door upgrades. Exterior features of the homes include board-and-batten style cementitious siding, composite decking, architectural v-groove siding, and a unique roofline.

PCL brought its long-standing relationships with the trades and its general contractor expertise into the mix. “I personally contacted the trades to get their buy-in,” says Passingham. “Some were able to get donations from their suppliers while others were able to donate their time and materials.” Passingham says he was not surprised at the positive response he received. “Calgary is that type of community,” he says.

Admirable cause “We knew Homes for Heroes was a worthy cause right when we first heard about it from PCL,” says David Kamis, chief estimator and project manager, Alsa Road Construction. “We gave a $5,000 donation and we bid a discounted price on the project.” Alsa Road Construction was responsible for all of the site works on the ATCO Village, including earthworks (subgrade preparation, gravel preparation), electrical

A hero’s welcome ATCO’s involvement in the Homes for Heroes project extended beyond the manufacturing and installation of the homes themselves. “Additionally, we had some of our employees dedicate their time to setting up the suites in advance of the tenants arriving,” says Ostrowski. Employees of PCL Construction were also generous with their time and effort, running a food drive to stock the shelves in each of the 15 homes and organizing a Christmas dinner for the veterans. “We were on board as soon as we heard about Homes for Heroes,” says David Passingham, director of business development, PCL Construction. “We realize that homelessness is a serious issue for military veterans and we wanted to do something to help.” The CONSTRUCTOR 2020

trenching, concrete sidewalks and stairs, along with the asphalt, parking stalls, and line painting. “The project moved at an extremely accelerated schedule and there were multiple crews from different trades on the site at any given time,” says Kamis. Like the other companies that got involved in the project, the employees at Alsa Road Construction embraced the project. “Our staff loved the idea,” says Kamis. “A few of us were able to attend the official open house, and we were honoured to be a part of it.”

Foothills Landscaping is another company that responded to the call for help. “We offered price discounts on our bid and we also volunteered to perform the maintenance work for a year,” says Larry Podesky, director of operations, Foothills Landscaping. The company got involved early on in the project and was able to contribute at the boardroom level during the initial planning stages. “We really enjoyed working on this one,” says Podesky. “It was a great job to begin with and everyone was very happy

to do what they could because it was such a worthy cause.”

Honouring the fallen Each one of the homes in ATCO Village is named in honour of a fallen soldier. “We wanted to acknowledge and honour those who lost their lives,” says Howard, who adds that many of the families of these heroes have expressed their gratitude and appreciation for this recognition. One of the people moved by this gesture was Murray Marshall whose son, Ste-


ing into the new Calgary community, which welcomed its first residents in November and currently has a waiting list of 16 people. He anticipates that the current tenants will begin transitioning out within the next few months, making room for those who are waiting. “So far, things are going very well,” he says, adding that three of the current tenants are already working full time. With the first village well established, Howard is focusing on the thousands of other homeless veterans who don’t yet have

When Marshall learned that one of the homes would be named after his son, he approached ATCO to offer his assistance. “We were really happy to learn that Murray wanted to be involved in the project,” says Ostrowski. “As a trained carpenter, he came on board and worked with us during the manufacturing process. It was a really moving experience for all of us.”

According to Howard, there is no shortage of veterans who are interested in mov-

Homes for Heroes as an option. Plans are already moving forward for a second village to be built in Edmonton, and many of the same partners have committed to supporting this new project, including ATCO and PCL Construction. Howard says the goal is to build many more villages across the country. “We hope to announce plans for communities in Winnipeg and Ontario very soon.” To learn more about the Homes for Heroes Foundation, visit www.homesforheroesfoundation.ca. n

Your Associations Working to Ensure You Get Paid on Time By Ken Gibson, Executive Director, the Alberta Construction Association

What is prompt pay?

Prompt pay is an urgent topic especially with cash as king in our current down market. Prompt pay legislation has been enacted in Ontario, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, and is currently under consideration by the Government of Alberta. This is in response to chronic problems due to increasing delays in payment for work properly performed and invoiced. General contractors, trades people, and suppliers often wait 70 to 90 days or more to get paid well past expiry of current lien rights. Such payment delays on public and private projects are detrimental to the financial health of firms by restricting cash flow and effectively adding financing costs to projects. A lack of knowledge surrounding pay-

ment provisions in contracts further up the contractual chain, as well as a reluctance to risk working relationships by enacting aggressive recovery steps have further restricted the industry’s ability to fix delayed payment through current contractual means.

What your associations are doing about prompt pay and the Government of Alberta initiative

The Alberta, Calgary, and Edmonton Construction Associations have successfully advocated for Service Alberta to initiate a review of construction payment legislation, including the Builders Lien Act, and ensured that a team of industry experts represented our industry in a recent series of Service Alberta consultation meetings. ACA thanks

Norm Kuntz, Craig Clifton, Fabrizio Carinelli, and Bill Black for their contributions and expertise. Your associations also reached out to build consensus across our industry with the Alberta Trade Contractors Coalition and the General Contractors Alliance of Canada which contributed to consistent messaging at these meetings.

Key points of advocacy based on industry consensus

Prompt payment provisions need to be legislated for all construction projects. The existing provisions of the Builders Lien Act focus on security of payment, not chronic delayed payment. The BLA excludes Crown projects under the Public Works Act and design consultant contracts. Prompt pay legislation stipulates payment procedures, timelines, and actions to address disputes and delayed payment. Mandatory progressive release of holdback. Currently, BLA holdback can be retained until completion of the project, even for subcontractors whose work was completed early on in the project. With prompt pay and progressive release of holdback, the impact of extended holdback could be significantly reduced. Faster and less expensive adjudication by recognized experts endorsed by industry groups. Legislated dispute resolution provides a means to resolve payment disputes with much less time and cost. Improved transparency. Posting payment dates through a recognized repository such as BuildWorks Canada would keep project participants informed.

Get a Bigger Piece of the Pie Non-taxable benefits

What is better than a slice of freshly baked pie? A BIGGER piece of the pie! In Canada, we have a graduated tax system, which means the more you reward employees with salary increases, the less of that reward they keep. The choices you make as an employer and the type of benefits you offer can have a great impact on how much of that freshly baked pie your employees will be left with. The government takes an increasing portion of that pie as your employees’ income levels increase (to almost half)! Get creative and give non-taxable benefits. Non-taxable benefits give your employees the full value of benefit perks while helping you retain your best staff! Your

Company gets the tax-deduction and your employees can keep 100 per cent of the bene­fit… if you choose wisely. Here are some non-taxable benefits you may consider offering: Health Care Plans – Group Plans and Health Spending Plans A group private health care plan and/or health spending plan paid by your company on behalf of your employees are a huge non-taxable benefit to the employee and a tax-deductible expense to the employer. A plan like this may be more valuable to your employees and their families than simply offering them a taxable raise to cover their own health plan costs. EMPLOYER BEWARE! Life, long-term

disability, and accidental death & dismemberment insurance should be paid by the employee to ensure any claim is paid out on a tax-free basis. Non-Taxable Allowances to Employee When your employees are required to work away from their home or workplace for more than 12 consecutive hours, your company can provide a tax-free allowance. Your company can pay employees a flat rate of up to $108.80 per day (sales tax included). If your employee is required to stay overnight but does not retain actual hotel receipts, there is also an allowance of $50 per night. EMPLOYER BEWARE! Although you do not need to keep detailed receipts for actual expenses if you choose to use this method, the CRA may ask for supporting documentation to support this deduction. Also note that these rates apply to 30 consecutive days. After 30 days the daily non-taxable allowance decreases. Reward Points and Loyalty Programs Your employees may collect loyalty or reward points on their personal credit cards even though you reimburse them for the amounts they spend for the company. Usually, these points can be exchanged for rewards. Your employees do not have to include the value of the rewards they receive or personally enjoy as income. EMPLOYER BEWARE! The CRA may consider this a taxable benefit if any of the following conditions apply: • the points are converted to cash

Worldwide, people with disabilities encounter accessibility barriers on a daily basis. It’s not uncommon for someone using a mobility device to have difficulty navigating urban areas due to the way the infrastructure is designed and constructed. In Calgary, almost 10 per cent of the city’s population identifies as disabled. The most common physical disabilities are chronic pain, impaired mobility, and reduced flexibility, which all affect a person’s ability to navigate and access buildings. Avree Bujaczek, chair of the Young Constructor Leaders (YCL) committee, is passionate about the construction industry adopting universal design. Her father has used a wheelchair since before she was born, and she has witnessed the daily challenges he faces. Recently, the YCL hosted a panel discussion about building infrastructure that is universally designed. Accessible and universal design are sometimes mistakenly used interchangeably. Accessible design meets the minimum standards of building codes, whereas universal design exceeds those requirements and considers all human abilities. It meets the needs of the greatest number of people; instead of one door being able to accommodate the width of a mobility device, all doors are built this way. The same goes for washrooms, sidewalks, elevators — any public space you can think of. “The thing is, retroactively, it’s very costly to renovate places to suit these needs,” says Bujaczek. “But when you’re in the design phase, the research shows that it costs 1 per cent extra to do it early on in a project. It’s really not a big cost. It just needs to be considered.”

As the millennial generation reach their thirties, they are filling associate and senior-level positions in the construction industry. Part of the goal of the YCL is to bridge the gap between the younger, up-and-coming industry leaders and the well-established, older generation. At their annual round-table discussion, an event called LIFT, the YCL members reflect on the different stereotypes about their generation. “There are some misconceptions about millennials, that we don’t know how to communicate, or we don’t have strong work ethic,” says Bujacek, who is 31-years-old herself. “We want to confront those misconceptions in an open, supportive environment. This year, our topic was instant gratification and how it affects the construction industry.” The committee meets once a month to network, socialize, and take initiative in the changing industry.

YP Merge – NextGen Collaboration The Calgary Construction Association’s Young Construction Leaders group (YCL) is working with other young professional groups in the Calgary region to launch YP Merge Calgary. YP Merge is a concept that originated in Edmonton to promote and increase collaboration and event sharing across a variety of groups in the design and construction industry. YP Merge allows young professionals in Calgary to participate in each other’s YP events. Collaboration starts with relationships, and relationships don’t come out of thin air. When organizing YCL events, we often hear “I didn’t know about this event

until the last minute” or “that’s the same night as another organization’s event.” In response to this concern, YP Merge is launching as the one-stop YP calendar and social media portal enabling a larger audience to see and register for all of Calgary’s YP events in one place. No more juggling, and no more missing out. Happy connecting! We encourage all construction professionals to push yourself out of your comfort zone and attend an event from another organization. You will learn something. Our goal is to have all the owner, design, and construction YP organizations in Cal-

gary come together to create a network of easily accessible YP events. Strong attendance at events allows us to grow and become more effective and better each year. The YCL LIFT event had its strongest turnout yet in 2019 with 69 people registered representing Builder, Owner, and Consultant organizations. A strong network of young professionals that understands the other organizations will help to develop the next generation of construction leaders. Look forward to the launch of YP Merge at yyc.ypmerge.ca later this spring and tag any photos or captions with #ypmergeyyc. n

YCL L.I.F.T. In 2016 the YCL was in its first year of operation, and the team wanted to host an event that would encourage the younger generation of people in the construction industry to share their ideas and be heard, while in a setting in which they felt comfortable. This led to LIFT, Leaders Initiating our Futures Together. The purpose of this annual event is to provoke thought and push people out of their comfort zones by having in-depth discussions in small groups about important topics in our industry. Sometimes the discussions go in a different direction than intended, but the YCL appreciates hearing out the ideas and concerns that attendees wish to share. The six topics discussed at the LIFT 2019 event are outlined along with the key points taken from each of the discussions.

Topic 1: Disruption Council For companies to stay afloat in today’s challenging economy, they are being encouraged to “think like a disruptor”, with the goal of diversifying their business, creating new business streams, and defending against competitors. The “Disruption Council” is meant to help spur innovation within organizations. Employees are given the opportunity to share ideas to a council of management and leaders within their company. Key Takeaway More can be done by supervisors, managers, and executives within companies to create a safe space to share ideas. Simply indicating that there is an “open door policy” might not be enough to encourage engagement. It is worth discussing intentionally on a regular basis, so employees do not feel like it’s a big deal to share new ideas.

Topic 2: Instant Gratification The younger generation has grown accustom to both instant gratification and in-

formation. People typically always have access to a computer, keeping them constantly updated. We often get frustrated when we don’t see instant results.

gear up to face the inevitable risks that will occur throughout a project. Remember to celebrate the little victories as they are overcome.

Key Takeaway Internal communication about availability expectations and working outside of hours can benefit companies and project teams by reducing stress and allowing for people to shut off and re-energize while away from work.

Topic 4: Adaptability Quotient

The construction industry has gone in the direction of creating paper trails to mitigate risks, which can slow down processes, create trust issues within teams, and cause strain on projects. Are our workplaces creating too many rules and safeguards that are adding more paper-pushing tasks and less productivity?

IQ is used to measure book smarts. EQ, or emotional intelligence, gauges your ability to understand emotions in yourself and other people, also known as soft skills or relationship skills. There is now a new buzzword called AQ, the Adaptability Quotient. AQ is the ability to adapt and thrive in fast changing environments with new technologies. Employees are switching careers faster than ever before, and new technologies are being created faster than the skills can be taught. The introduction of artificial intelligence is also eradicating jobs. Adapting to uncertainty in our industry is important for our survival in the workplace.

Key Takeaway Risk isn’t something we should fear. We should get to know our project risks better, talk about them more with intent, and look for opportunities within them. Building trust within your project team is the best way to

Key Takeaway People are recognizing that they will be required to have strong technological competencies, but soft skills will continue to be valuable skills for employees to upkeep and demonstrate.

Topic 3: Risk Mitigation


Topic 5: Company Culture There is a large shift in the construction industry occurring due to baby boomers retiring and millennials moving up into senior positions. We are noticing a culture shift between the generations and what employees find valuable in their workplace environment. Key Takeaway The desire for work/life balance doesn’t necessarily mean that people want to work less, they just want more flexibility to fit other commitments into their lives, such as family and health.

Topic 6: Accessibility

In Canada, almost 50 per cent of adults have or have experienced a permanent or temporary disability. With the current percentage of aging population quite high, accessibility is more important than ever. Recently, the Rick Hansen Foundation created a certification program that has a similar framework as the LEED rating system. It is called the Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification (RHFAC). You can become a RHFAC designated professional or rate your building with the RHFAC scorecard. Key Takeaway Alberta has a lot of room for improvement regarding accessibility in construction. This can start from the ground up with an increase in education but also should be driven from the top down with government standards increased in order to enforce the requirements that will meet the needs of those with disabilities. There are many insightful comments and takeaways which came from each LIFT discussion. If you’d like to be a part of the 2020 LIFT event, be sure to keep an eye out for registration opening in October 2020. The event will be held in Calgary in November. The YCL team is always looking for new topics so please reach out if you have something you would like input on or if you’re interested in facilitating this event. Please contact the CCA at mail@cgyca.com to get in touch with the YCL. n

Ten years ago, if you visited a job site, you would have passed by a “Men At Work” sign. As the construction industry evolves into a more gender-diverse workforce, the Calgary chapter of the Women in Construction (WiC) committee is pushing for changes in the language used on and around worksites and offices. “When young people are driving down the road and they see a sign that says, “men and equipment working”, a young girl may think ‘I don’t belong there.’ Even if she’s not consciously thinking it, it’s implanting the idea that construction is a man’s job,” says Lindsay Scott, current WiC chair. The driving force behind these changes is an advocacy group, a subcommittee of WiC. Since meeting with the Minister of Transport last

year, electronic signage around Calgary job sites has changed to “crews and equipment working.” It may seem nuanced, Scott says, but changing the narrative is integral for such a fast-growing industry. “Representation matters. If we want people to choose a career in construction, they need to be able to actually see themselves there in that role,” says Scott. The advocacy group has grown organically over the past few years. During monthly WiC meetings, members began reflecting on the ways they could be impactful in their companies and communities. While the committee loves to meet, socialize, and network, there was a desire to contribute more to the industry. “Right now, our main goal is opening people’s eyes to those biases

“Watching the conversation and being part of the conversation about women in construction change from one of ‘there, there girls, drink your wine’ to one that is more inclusive and collaborative.” that they don’t even notice,” says Scott. As her tenure as chair comes to a close this spring, she reflects on her favourite part of her two-year position. “Watching the conversation and being part of the conversation about women in construction change from one of, ‘there, there girls, drink your wine’ to one that is more inclusive and collaborative.” Scott has seen the change not only in a work environment, but in the WiC’s event attendance. Their annual charity golf tournament was launched in 2017 with only three men registering. In 2018, 20 per cent

of the registrants were male. This past summer, that number doubled —nearly half the participants identified as male. Scott says that this collaboration between all genders is essential to industry growth. “There’s a difference between highlighting diversity and actually engaging in inclusivity,” she says. “By hosting events that include everyone, and by making small changes in language, we are actively creating a more inclusive industry.” For more information about WiC, visit the Committee page at www.cgyca.com. n

Building off its OAEC roots, BOC began the next stage of the new journey in 2019 as it sought to transition into an ongoing initiative intended and designed to provide a forum where multiple stakeholders can collaborate on the major issues and opportunities facing our industry. During the event in June 2019, the Lean A3 method was selected as the method to structure the dialogue, set the pace, and record the results. From the 200 attendees, 21 teams were trained on the A3 format and, with their efforts collectively facilitated by a great group of individuals from the Calgary Lean Community of Practice, they set about their task: • Teams self-selected a problem theme from a list provided including ‘thought starters’. • They identified a problem description to capture what they viewed as the core issue.

Building off the work from June 2019, the goal will be to take the next step on the key issues and action steps based on the top issues as per the votes. • Using the A3 template, teams broke the problem down systematically (including current state evaluation, future state identification, root cause analysis, potential solutions/options identification). • Teams then summarized their top recommended actions to address the problem selected. • Completed A3’s were posted in a ‘gallery’ and participants dot-voted on the preferred recommended actions for the BOC to address. • Voting was done using colour coding to distinguish builders from owners and consultants in order to increase understanding of what is important to each of these groups. This collateral has provided us with a rich set of data that will form the basis of the next event which is planned for May 28, 2020. Each of the A3’s has been reviewed and summarized, and a full report will be ready to be circulated in April to the previous attendees as well as all who register for the May event. With this information at that session, we will embark on the next stage of the journey towards understanding how to engage in the important conversations and bring about real positive change in the industry. We look forward to this important next step and participating in such an incredible opportuntiy for cross-industry enagement. Building off the work from June 2019, the goal will be to take the next step on the key issues and action steps based on the top issues as per the votes. We have already reserved the space for a follow-up BOC event on November 19, 2020. This will likely take the form of a collective update on the work done on the key issues and will finally allow us to reach our true goal of ongoing work and progress towards advancing postive change and industry transformation. We have to acknowledge all the amazing volunteers and event participants that have made such a contribution over the years, both in the work of the Committee in planning and in attending and participation in the events themselves. Whether you are a legacy participant or looking to get involved for the first time, we welcome all to such an important initiative and hope you will join us on this mission. Check the CCA website for further details – registration for the May 28 event will open in April. n


Lean production, or lean manufacturing, is a method originally created by Toyota in the 1980s to improve the efficiency and quality of their products. The methodology has since been adopted by various industries and companies such as Nike, Intel, and the Kimberly-Clark Corporation (who makes Kleenex soft tissues). The lean method promotes continuous improvement and efficiency, and it optimizes people, resources, and effort to sustainably deliver value to customers or clients. The construction industry was slow to introduce the method, due to the complex supply chain involved in building projects. However, in cities where the module is being used, it has proven to be effective. John Manes is the chair for the Calgary chapter — or Community of Practice (CoP). “There’s always a better way to do something,” says Manes. “The idea is to just find that new method and collaborate with each other to implement it.” One of the ways contractors can optimize time and work flow is by using pre-fabricated materials. This is becoming more and more popular in the industry, where fixtures such as tresses and door frames are brought to job sites assembled and ready to install. Just recently, a new hospital was built from the ground up in Wuhan, China over the span of a week. Manes says that this was possible because of their use of pre-fabricated materials and a disciplined and efficient work flow. “The faster and better a job can be completed, the more value for the customer and contractor. It’s also less expensive,” says Manes. The Calgary CoP meets monthly for Lean Coffee, an open-structured meeting with peer-created agendas that promote collaborative and production conversations. The group often participates in workshops or group activities that exercise problem-solving skills and critical thinking. In June 2019, they collaborated with the Building Owner Consultants group to host a training activity.

The 160 participants were divided into diverse groups and tasked with finding common solution strategies to industry issues. The outcome was 90 recommendations made to the Calgary Construction Association.

Working Smarter with

BuildWorks Canada By Curtis Griffith, Director of Business Development, BuildWorks “Where the Work is.” This is what the marketers would call our “brand promise.” I’d like to dig a bit deeper into that promise and how we deliver it to you in three simple ways. The first is ‘Pre-Bid or Design & Planning’ stage information, the second is our traditional ‘Active Bid or Open Opportunities’, and the third is our ‘Directory and Invitational work’. Through the Pre-Bid information, we want to connect you to information relevant in your business before it’s too late. We know that often once a project is ready to tender, the opportunity for your organization to get involved and win the work is already gone. The earlier BuildWorks Canada can connect you to information about upcoming construction, the better equipped you are to engage, collaborate, plan, and win the business. We act as reporters and journalists in this space to be the singular source of upcoming construction news and information across Western Canada. Our Active or Open Opportunity information is the bread and butter of BuildWorks Canada. As important as pre-bid or design & planning stage information is, we absolutely understand that money gets made and projects are won on bid closing day. We work to aggregate and input as much information as possible on active bidding oppor-

FORT MCMURRAY CONSTRUCTION ASSOCIATION


A passion for building

Kees Cusveller By Jim Timlick

Well-dressed and hard at work from the beginning, Cusveller says he first felt the passion for construction at the age of 13. Left: Typing his resignation letter to the Faculty of Engineering before applying to the Building Construction Technology program at NAIT, earning a commerce degree from the University of Alberta, and an MBA from the University of Calgary. Below: At the beginning of his nearly 40-year construction career, where he distinguished himself as one of the industry’s most recognizable figures.

Kees Cusveller was just 13 years old when his father Joh, an engineer by training, decided to build a garage at their family’s Calgary home. A self-described “hands-on” kid, Cusveller eagerly helped his dad build the structure, the first of many construction projects he would play an active role in. “We did it all ourselves,” he recalls of the experience. “I thought it was fascinating. I had to go up on the roof and put up plywood. I was already pretty handy with the tools.” Cusveller went on to work in construction for nearly 40 years before easing into semiretirement in March of 2017. Along the way he worked for two of the biggest construction firms in Alberta, PCL Construction and the Graham Group, provided a decade of service to the Calgary, Alberta, and Canadian construction associations and distinguished

himself as one of the provincial construction industry’s most recognizable figures. Interestingly, it’s a career that could have turned out quite different. After graduating from high school, he decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and applied to study engineering at the University of Alberta. But after a summer of working for a local construction firm he knew that his destiny lay elsewhere. “I started engineering school at the University of Alberta, and on day one I said I’m not doing this. I can’t sit here for four years doing this stuff. I quit,” he says, laughing. “The field of construction always fascinated me. I loved seeing things get built, get torn apart, and get put back together again.” After working as a labourer for a local construction company, Cusveller applied to the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology

Cusveller, now retired, lectures at the University of Calgary and SAIT, presents seminars for construction associations, and consults on various projects.

(NAIT) where he went on to graduate from the school’s Building Construction Technology program. While studying there, he developed a passion for volunteerism by serving as the president of NAIT’s student association. In 2012 he was named one of NAIT’s Top 50 Alumni of the past 50 years. Upon graduation, he was hired as a project coordinator by PCL Construction and spent the next 19 years working his way up the company’s ranks. He also earned a commerce degree from the University of Alberta and an MBA from the University of Calgary while working full time. In 1999, Cusveller was hired by the Graham Group as the manager of their Calgary branch office. He filled that role for eight years before moving to corporate as the vicepresident of business development, where he

became more involved in project procurement and the management side of the business. While he was involved in numerous projects at the Graham Group, Cusveller says there were two that he remains particularly proud of to this day. The first was leading the pursuit and implementation of the Alberta Schools Public Private Partnership project consisting of 18 schools in Calgary and Edmonton, and the other was his first social infrastructure P3, which was the first for Alberta infrastructure as well. He was also instrumental in helping reorganize the company’s U.S. offices in Seattle and Spokane that were significant money losers when he arrived in 2012. “The president of the company said we either have to fix it, kill it, or do something

with it,” he says. “We hired some new people and redid the way we did things. Today, it’s one of the most successful operations in the company which I’m proud of.” Giving back to the construction industry has been a hallmark of Cusveller’s career. As he is fond of saying, if the industry is strong, it’s good for everyone. One need look no further than his many years of service to various industry associations for proof. He became involved in the Calgary Construction Association in the early 2000s. He served as chair of the general contractors group before moving on to the main board and serving as its chair in 2005. Cusveller also played a key leadership role with the Alberta Construction Association (ACA). He served as chair of the ACA’s Institutional Infrastructure Partners Committee, authored a proposal on long-term strategic planning for community infrastructure and served as chair of the association in 2009. Of all the work he has done on behalf of the associations, Cusveller is especially proud of his involvement in helping launch the four-year Bachelor of Science Construction Project Management degree at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) in 2011. He continues to serve as chair of the program’s advisory committee today. “It’s graduating 30 students every year and has been extremely well received by the industry,” he says. “Graduates continue to get work even though in some ways it couldn’t have come at a worse time with the economic downturn.” Cusveller’s work on behalf of the ACA earned him a seat at the table with the Canadian Construction Association where he served on its executive from 2011 until 2018. His time with the Canadian association was highlighted by his work with its ethics committee to bring in guidelines to prevent potential corruption in the management of construction contracts. The committee’s efforts resulted in the creation of a course that has been taken by thousands of people in the industry across the country.


“I’m thrilled with that. I think it’s just so wonderful,” he says. “At the very least it makes you spend a half day in a course looking at things that were once acceptable as the norm but no longer are today. It also shows you why and gives some tips on how to avoid

Le So

those kinds of situations.” Another passion project for Cusveller has been his ongoing efforts advocating on behalf of public-private partnerships, or P3s. He has conducted numerous lectures on the subject on behalf of the Alberta and Canadian construction associations over the years. “The idea of P3s is almost passé now, but it wasn’t 10 years ago,” he says. “The construction industry can be pretty short sighted. We build something and as soon as it’s done we move on to something else. We never think about the long-term. The beauty of the P3 model is you are forced to get involved with other people and you need to think longterm including the lifecycle and maintenance
