CATALYZING AN INDUSTRY Bill Black, CCA President & COO At the end of 2020, the Calgary Construction Association (CCA) applied for the Canadian Construction Association “Partner Associa­ tion Award”. While the main award went to the Construction Association of Nova Sco­ tia, CCA was recognized with an Honorable Mention. The award looks back over the last three years and, while 2020 may feel like three years unto itself, there is much to reflect on looking back over the last 36 months. This not only serves as a reminder of how much we have been able to achieve but it is also a powerful motivator as to what we can achieve in the future. Calgary is a resilient city and, while we will certainly have our work cut out for us over the next couple of years, we have always prevailed in the past and we will do so again with our industry once again at the front line of our recovery.

I thought that I would share some of the content from our submission as it is a tribute to you, our members, and the achievements that we have realized together. We may not have been able to enjoy all the activities we are used to over the course of 2020, but we have adapted well and that is largely because of the great people that make up our industry and the momentum that we had coming into the year.

INDUSTRY ENHANCEMENT – Catalyzing an industry around a COVID response Pandemic Planning Document – In the weeks leading up to March 15, 2020, all in the construction industry were tracking how COVID was spreading. We all knew that it was only a matter of time before it would impact us in Calgary. With major events canceling the week or two prior and other developments elsewhere, we saw the pattern

progressing and then when the province an­ nounced school closures on the Sunday – we were “live”. With construction projects being closed down in cities in the US and with other prov­ inces raising similar questions associated with site safety concerns related to COVID, we knew that this would be a key factor in industry being able to continue operating on sites. Local news media was already picking up on the sentiments from elsewhere, target­ ing specific sites in Calgary, and raising their questions. Conversations with key industry stake­ holders were making it clear that action need­ ed to be taken on a significant scale. We also recognized that if our industry was going to be able to facilitate a universal response then we needed to act fast. The CCA immediately reached out to a number of local industry leaders to host such a conversation, and on March 18 a group of more than 26 local con­ struction leaders assembled via Zoom to dis­ cuss the overall situation as an industry. There were senior leadership and business owners on the call that spanned a range of large to smaller sized organizations including general contractors, trades, and suppliers. The construction industry focuses on safe­ ty first, then we build. The safety professionals that work across the industry are dedicated, well trained, and experienced in continually assessing the risks and implementing proto­ cols for universal application and site-specific scenarios. We therefore had the inherent skill sets and aptitude for this challenge. Such was the conversation during the course of the phone call with the overall question being, “How do we keep our people safe, allow them to keep working on the sites, and how do we mobilize on an industry scale?” There was

also one other reality to consider in that the larger firms have significant in-house resourc­ es dedicated to safety, while the smaller ones are not able to sustain that same level. With that in mind, how do we ensure an industrywide response? This is where the presence of a common thread comes into play in how it galvanized all of the stakeholders. In an unprecedented show of collaboration over the course of the call, one by one, the larger firms represented all offered to share the work that their teams had already begun, some of it in its raw form, and CCA agreed to consolidate the content in one document for industry-wide release. With characteristic speed, several docu­ ments were shared from a number of sources that same day and the work to consolidate began immediately. Two days later on Friday March 20, Version 1.0 of the Pandemic Plan­ ning Document was published via the Alberta Construction Association to ensure maxi­ mum industry exposure and it was shared across the province and, ultimately, distrib­ uted across the country.

The leadership calls continued three times a week so that industry could share what was being learned from daily experience on sites and compare notes. As the protocols contin­ ued to evolve based on these events, the ma­ terial continued to be shared by each com­ pany and the Pandemic Planning Document was updated continually eventually reaching Version 4.0 over the following weeks. As a result of the work done under this CCA-led initiative, construction was deemed an essential service and our industry was able to remain in operation. As COVID restrictions have prevailed through the sec­ ond wave, the work that we carried out and the establishment of this practice has been the basis for construction continuing to be deemed essential. In a province that had been ravaged by the economic fallout of the collapsed energy sec­ tor since 2015 and will likely be facing two or three more years of recession, this continuity of business has literally saved our industry as many would not have survived a full shut­ down.

To date, there have been no known cases of site-based transmission in Alberta, but we are far from out of the woods. The work continues.

MEMBER RESOURCES CCA posted links to this document, all other relevant publications, as well as links to distributors of PPE and COVID-related supplies from masks to Perspex screens in order to provide our members with a single source for key information. To date, over 3,000 members have “clicked” on these links.

AJIRT In addition to the COVID leaders work being done in Calgary, CCA was also a founding member of the Alberta Joint In­ dustry Response Team (AJIRT), a group that aligned with Consulting Architects of Alber­ ta (CAA), Consulting Engineers of Alberta (CEA), Alberta Construction Association (ACA), Alberta Trade Contractors Coali­ tion (ATCC), and Edmonton Construction Association (ECA). The goal of this group, which still meets weekly, was to integrate a

PROMPT PAYMENT CCA has been directly involved in two full engagement sessions hosted by the province over the last year regarding the Prompt Pay­ ment Initiative. CCA provided industry feed­ back to inform their process during the ini­ tial launch on July 1, 2018, and most recently on November 4, 2020 when the Government of Alberta passed updates for Bill 37: Build­ ers’ Lien (Prompt Payment) Amendment Act, 2020. We continue to be closely con­ nected to ongoing work now proceeding in the development of the regulations.

CITY OF CALGARY Our most important relationship is with the City of Calgary. Our working relation­ ship over the years has been successful in aligning the city and industry on many as­ pects, but changes in personnel and practices were altering the landscape of City Hall and some of the relationships that we had fos­ tered for so long were either changing roles, leaving, or retiring. We have been re-focus­ ing our efforts on how to ensure that they continue to engage our industry as an expert resource and a partner in their planning and development of certain initiatives. We want to be seen as a subject matter expert and a trusted advisor. As a result of our continued efforts: • We have seen an increase in the frequency of City Liaison Committee meetings, in the attendees at these meetings, and in the rich­ ness of the content and dialogue that we are engaging in together. We are advising on procurement strategies and many matters that are of high value to our members and the industry at large. • We are sitting on the City’s Benefit Driven Procurement Advisory Task Force as they seek to pilot social procurement practices. • We recently co-presented an industry en­ gagement session with key members of the procurement team where their vision and our industry’s responses and ques­ tions were discussed in front of 60 virtual attendees. We are now gathering member feedback on their behalf so they can inform their efforts directly from industry. • We participate in the Business Sector Task Force meetings that occur weekly as a rep­

insurance claims in Canadian history. • We continue to support and participate in the City of Calgary Partnering with Indus­ try Symposium which is held annually. • We continue to represent our industry’s in­ terests in regard to the Green Line and, in particular, the need to maximize the stimu­ lus from the project by packaging the work in order to ensure maximum opportunity for local participation rather than bundle the scope into a mega project. Most recently, we have begun to interface

with the City on what could promise to be our best partnering, joint initiative yet that has the potential to be provincial in scale. In September, we co-hosted a session where the City of Vancouver shared their approach to adopting new standards with an audience from both the City of Calgary and the City of Edmonton. The interest from both munici­ palities now promises to be a breakthrough in our industry’s role in advancing innova­ tion in Alberta.

BUILDERS, OWNERS, AND CONSULTANTS (BOC) The Owners, Architects, Engineers & Contractors (OAEC) was established in 2013 to bring together all members of the industry in forums designed to facilitate dialogue and


work towards a better industry. As we real­ ized 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 need­ ed on an ongoing basis to drive momentum. In 2018, we evolved to a more inclusive and less hierarchical Builders Owners & Consultants (BOC) group with the collective


goal to Transform Together.


Despite an enforced hiatus in 2020, BOC


continues to be one of our most valuable


ways in which we can transform our indus­


try through collaborative dialogue, and it


will be key in many of the initiatives that we


take on in the future.


LEAN COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE While not directly a part of the CCA itself, we are very closely aligned with the Calgary Lean CoP. Bill Black has been involved with Lean since 2004 and was already a part of this group prior to taking on the role as president and COO of CCA. Knowing the importance of Lean in terms of the future of our indus­ try, we know that our members need such a resource for knowledge, awareness, and connection. We have made a solid commit­ ment to this group hosting and participating in many of its sessions and being involved as part of the leadership team.

EDUCATION Over the last three years the Education Program at CCA has been significantly over­ hauled. Course content has been added and some older content has been discontinued. As a result, our cancellation rate has been cut by two-thirds and our total course hours were growing by 30 per cent per annum lead­ ing up to March 2020. Despite COVID, CCA scheduled 192 course dates on its education calendar in 2020. In addition, we hosted 656 in-class student hours and over 718 virtual student hours. CCA has been a strong and reliable resource for information and connections for our members and customers and will continue to advocate for the Gold Seal pro­ gram, led by the Canadian Construction Association. In 2020, 43 students wrote the Gold Seal Exam through our association and we look forward to continuing this in 2021. CCA’s last in-class course was the “Con­ struction 101 & Beyond” in early March 2020. As the pandemic in the province brought offices to a lockdown, it was time for us to re-evaluate our program and co­ ordinate with course instructors on how to virtualize the curriculum whilst maintaining the authenticity of the teaching/learning ex­ perience. Working alongside Edmonton, Vancou­



tions, we collectively assembled a calendar of virtual education that would allow us to collectively host courses, instead of cancel­ ling them for the lack of attendance. We be­ gan our revitalized program with “Managing Change in Construction”, and then added “Construction Industry Ethics” and “Sub­ contracts 101” onto the virtual platform. We collaborated with The Construction Institute of Canada and introduced highly requested courses such as “Blueprint Read­ ing”, “Construction Law”, “Close Out a Construction Project” and “Working in a Respectful and Inclusive Workplace” to our education program and they have been our most frequently requested courses. Through the CCA Education Fund, we continue to support students and educa­ tion in our city. Prior to 2020, our annual golf tournament consistently raises between $60,000 and $80,000 which all goes to the fund with no deduction for administration fees. As a result, it has raised over $1,000,000 since its inception and regularly distributes over $100,000 per annum. In 2019, we invested $90,000 with South­ ern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) over three years to create three new endow­ ments for Women in Trades and Technology.

MEMBERSHIP RECRUITMENT PROGRAMS At CCA, membership recruitment is about both attracting new members while retaining existing members. Over the last three years, CCA has devel­ oped a specific focus around recruitment and retention. In the past our growth and retention was somewhat organic and thrived because of our network, but as the business environment changed and social network­ ing and other influencers evolved we also needed to make a focused effort to reach our marketplace and stay connected. Our current approach is about providing a true member experience while also build­ ing a stronger sense of community. This has included such steps as: • More personal and direct communica­ tion in that we reach out personally to our members for a check-in or to invite them to sessions that we know they will be in­ terested in. We have found that as a result, our members are feeling more connected to CCA and are providing tremendous feed­ back which continues to inform our ongo­ ing services. • All new members are included in “Wel­ come Wednesdays” which replaced our New Member Breakfasts. These are oneon-one virtual Zoom meet and greets be­ tween their teams and ours as a kickoff to their CCA experience. New members meet the CCA team and see what we do and we get a chance to meet their team while learn­ ing about their organization, their aspira­ tions, and reasons for joining CCA. This sets us up well to ensure they have the best experience. • We instituted “Food Truck Fridays” in the summer of 2019 as a way for our com­ munity to connect through the months when there are less items and events on the agenda. Members came to our parking lot to enjoy a lunch and a chance to connect with their peers, our team, and CCA board members. • We launched our “Meet the GC” virtual networking events and these have proved to be highly popular ways for members to network and connect despite the restric­ tions.


In addition to our many loyal members, we are happy to welcome many new and returning members to the CCA community and look forward to the future together in 2021 and beyond. CCA is continually looking for ways to bring more value to our members. Perhaps our greatest innovation in this regard has been the introduction of the Business Hub. As the majority of our members are small or medium businesses, they do not have the in-house resources and expertise at their disposal that the larger corporations have; yet, these skills are increasingly needed in today’s world of business. These are simply not affordable in a market where people are trying to keep margins down in order to re­ main competitive. There are high risks however, associated with not having these professional services and advisory resources ensuring that you are on the right track as you navigate busi­ ness. Enter the CCA Business Hub. The goal of Business Hub is to establish a group of best-in-class specialty business service providers in key fields in a central­ ized resource group and then facilitate scal­ able access to these services for our mem­ bers. Some of the potential key areas being considered include human resources, busi­ ness strategy, wellness benefits, IT/mobility, banking and financial services, marketing and communications, and fraud preven­ tion. There are three levels that allow members access to a tailored set of services best suited to their needs. • Group Education Sessions – Available free

to members, these one- or two-hour ses­ sions provide pertinent information on key topics related to each field that will allow you to gain an understanding of current best practices, regulatory changes, and risks and opportunities under each discipline. • Focus Sessions – Exclusive work sessions with your ownership and leadership teams to focus on these subjects and their appli­ cation to your specific needs in order to chart the best future path. • Services – Ongoing scalable range of ser­ vices as required in the regular course of business on a “pay-to-play” basis allowing access to best-in-class knowledge in the most cost-effective manner possible. Strong businesses need great partners. If CCA is able to facilitate connections with the best providers that can specialize in our industry and partner with our members, then we not only strengthen each organiza­ tion, we strengthen the entire industry. In Fall 2019, the first two groups launched their sessions: Elevated HR and Results Canada. Both of these groups were already providing their services to CCA and had proved to be highly valuable in helping us ensure that our organization is strong, healthy, and focused on the right things for the future. We believed that our members should experience the same.

When COVID struck, Business Hub was in the right place at the right time. The role it was able to play in supporting the busi­ ness of our members as the crisis evolved

needs to find ways to be a business resource partner to our members. Rather than rely only on our historic services with a large social component, we need to help them be more effective at the core of what it takes to operate a small business. Immediately after COVID struck, we set up three weekly member exclusive calls, jointly hosted by myself and Michelle Berg, principal with Elevated HR. These were live updates where Michelle would provide the details on the latest evolving federal program and then answer our members’ questions live as they encountered an issue. These live Q&A/Advisory sessions proved invaluable to our members, so much so that we ran 28 sessions between March 18 and May 8, 2020. Our Business Hub continued to provide webinars including two legal panels dis­ cussing force majeure along with sessions dealing with insurance & bonding implica­ tions and finance sessions providing spe­ cialty knowledge on key subjects that our members desperately needed assistance with as they adapted to the crisis. During these key months, over 2,500 people attend­ ed member exclusive events at no cost to them and were able to access key informa­ tion that allowed them to navigate through literally had their backs. We are now working with organizations like MNP, BDC, Northbridge Insurance, and others to continue to build on the Busi­ ness Hub.

TAKING MEMBER VALUE AND INDUSTRY SERVICE TO HIGHER LEVELS Craig Clifton, CCA Chair In order to properly appreciate the year that was, we have to remember how it start­ ed. My term as chair of the CCA was set to begin on March 26, 2020 at our AGM, where everyone was looking forward to hearing the sometimes controversial thoughts of our guest speaker, Brett Wil­ son. At the time, our organization and in­ dustry were beginning another year and heading into an uncertain construction season, with an energy sector suffering the long-term effects of a depressed commod­ ity price and an ownership community

dealing with, what we thought at the time, were unfathomably high vacancies down­ town and a clear challenge to identify the economic driver of the future. Not a par­ ticularly rosy outlook at the time, but then a pandemic was declared and the real un­ certainty set in. It would have been easy for the CCA to retreat inward, cut overhead, and plan to ride out the pandemic in relative safety liv­ ing off our reserved funds. However, under the guidance of Bill Black and Norm Kuntz as well as several others, the organization did the exact opposite and looked for ways

to help provide some level of clarity to our members in a time of tremendous ambigu­ ity. Given that nothing like this had hap­ pened in one hundred years, our members were desperate for information; any infor­ mation that they could use to start making decisions with. In response, the CCA began organizing webinars with subject matter experts to help educate our members; top­ ics included federal and provincial assis­ tance programs, human resources obliga­ tion, employee counselling, and economic forecasting during the pandemic. At the

Perhaps most importantly, almost im­ mediately after the pandemic declaration, the COVID Leaders Forum was estab­ lished. This was a collection of industry leaders that got together to discuss issues surrounding the pandemic. This group was responsible for the development of a best practices document that detailed how to maintain safety on construction sites and enabled our industry to continue working safely during the pandemic. The resulting document was offered freely to other as­ sociations throughout Canada and was ad­

opted by numerous organizations, some as far away as Dubai. The creation of the guide was instru­ mental in the eventual decision to allow construction sites to continue to operate. Collective lobbying efforts with the ACA, CEA and AAA, in addition to the best practices document help prove to all levels of government that the construction indus­ try could operate safely and allowed our membership to continue the job of build­ ing our community. More recently there has been some great work done by the Governance Commit­ tee to lay the foundation for the CCA of the future. We have clarified the structure of the organization, redefined the roles of

the committees, and made it much easier for the entire organization to work toward common goals. This cues up the organi­ zation well for the next chapter in taking member value and industry service to even higher levels. Many have begun to call 2020 a lost year; it has been anything but for the CCA. Over the course of the pandemic, I have come to appreciate the organization, the staff, and our president to a much greater extent. As my year as chair comes to a close, I will always be grateful for the opportunity to work with the CCA during such a signifi­ cant time and I hope that the actions of the organization are remembered by genera­ tions of builders to come. n

LEADING THE WAY By Jim Timlick Former American First Lady Rosalynn Carter was once quoted as saying a leader takes people where they want to go, while a great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be. And while the wife of U.S. President Jimmy Carter likely wasn’t referring specifically to the construction industry, those same leadership qualities she spoke of are just as valuable in the building sector as they are to any prime minister or president. In the following pages, The Constructor takes a personal look at some of the leaders on the Calgary construction scene including how they got their start in the industry, what leadership means to them, and what advice they have for the industry’s next generation of leaders.


“I learned about collaboration too, just working as a group. I always played team sports and saw the nuances of the different personalities around you and how to manage those so that you were successful together.”


Calgary Construction Association

As vice-president and general manager of Clark Builders, Kim Connell oversees all aspects of the company’s operations in southern Alberta, including project de­ velopment and operations. An engineer by trade, Connell was always good at math in school and her interest in numbers prompted her to con­ sider engineering when she registered for university even though “I don’t know if I knew what an engineer actually did when I signed up,” she recalls, laughing. “Once I was in it, the courses I really liked were around the building side of things, structures and steel,” she says. “I began my career in project trailers work­ ing on site. The construction side of things was really exciting to me. I really liked the front-end piece of it, bringing that concept to reality, and knowing the vagueness of how it starts and then seeing the end product.” Perhaps one of the biggest influences on her professional career was her sports background. In addition to playing bas­ ketball, she was an elite level soccer player and played several seasons with the Dal­ housie University women’s team before graduating from the school’s engineering faculty. Many of the lessons she learned on the pitch and in the gym continue to influence her today, both in the board­ room and in the field. “I think the big one was time manage­ ment, just in terms of managing school, work, practices and games,” she says.

“I learned about collaboration too, just working as a group. I always played team sports and saw the nuances of the differ­ ent personalities around you and how to manage those so that you were successful together.” One of the first engineering jobs Con­ nell was hired for was a co-op work term position with a project management com­ pany in Nova Scotia while she was still at­ tending university. The job was her first taste of construction and was a memo­ rable experience for her. The person who hired her for the position, Wadih Fares, became a mentor to her and offered her a full-time position when she first moved to Calgary. “He was incredibly supportive and gave me as much as I could take on so that I could grow as quickly as I could man­ age,” she says. “When he gave me my first job in Calgary I probably grew 10 years in my development just on that one project by having that kind of opportunity.” Connell has tried to pay that experi­ ence forward by providing mentorship to a number of young engineers. One of the lessons she often shares with them is the value of good old-fashioned hard work. “It probably comes back to what you try to teach your kids, which is that hard work pays off. I’ve been fortunate that I’ve worked hard and achieved something, and I’ve been rewarded for it. That doesn’t always happen, which can be discourag­ ing. That’s why perseverance can be so important.”




Lara Murphy and partner Karen Ryan, Ryan Murphy Construction.


LARA MURPHY, RYAN MURPHY CONSTRUCTION Lara Murphy knew from a young age that she was destined for a career in con­ struction. “My mom would tell me as a kid I wanted X-ray vision as my superpower so I could see inside buildings to see how they were built,” she recalls. “I was always mes­ merized by stuff like that.” Murphy received an arts degree from Mount Allison University in New Bruns­ wick, where she also starred on the Mount­ ies’ women’s soccer team. An entrepreneur at heart, she started her own company while attending school to help pay her tuition. Her soccer coach was so impressed by her work ethic off the pitch he once told her he could see her one day running her own multimillion-dollar company. Even though she didn’t fully comprehend his words about her future at the time, they did plant a seed and provided her with the inspiration to start her own construction company years later. In 2008, Murphy formed Ryan Murphy Construction with partner Karen Ryan. Today, the general contracting firm is wellknown on the Calgary construction scene

for its agility in handling any kind of proj­ ect, from colossal multi-floor office spaces to boutique-style restaurants and coffee shops. Their list of recent projects includes converting office spaces in Calgary land­ marks such as the National Music Centre and the Devenish Building and transform­ ing a section of another heritage building into a boxing and athletic club. Today, Ryan Murphy Construction is growing rapidly, ranking on the Growth 500 list for six consecutive years, and achiev­ ing honours such as the Alberta Women Entrepreneurs’ Celebration of Achieve­ ment Award in 2020. Murphy’s hope is that those considering trades as an option can look at her as an example of what a career in construction can look like. “Getting into the trades or beginning an entrepreneurial journey is something that can bring the next generation joy and success,” she says. “I would like to leave a legacy where younger individuals who are considering a different career or business take that chance to look outside of what they are expected to do and take a real leap of faith. Don’t feel like you have to play it safe.”

CATHY ORR, RGO PRODUCTS RGO Products president and CEO, Cathy Orr, literally grew up around the company founded in 1966 by her father, Ross Glen, and his then business partner, Gordon Oli­ ver. The company started out as a Steelcase office furniture dealer and then expanded to an office equipment shop. Orr joined the company in 1983 after graduating from the University of Alberta with a bachelor’s de­ gree of science in home economics. Before long, she took over RGO’s window cover­ ings division and helped build it into one of the firm’s most successful divisions, thanks in large part to the relations she helped

build with some of Calgary’s largest general contractors. “I have a huge passion for the construc­ tion side of things. I love to watch things grow and be built,” she says. Orr has served as president and CEO of RGO Products since 2016, and succeeding her father in the role was no easy task thanks to his decades of experience and “big personality”. But the fact that she can call on him for advice at any time – he still comes into the office ev­ ery day at the age of 83 – helped make for a smooth transition. Not surprisingly, Orr cites her dad as one of her biggest role models, saying his work ethic and discipline have been huge influ­ ences on her. Although she never worked with her paternal grandfather Bill, a sales­ man by trade, Orr says he too had a huge influence on her as a businessperson. “He was an incredible mentor to me. He was tenacious and taught me to be tena­ cious. When things weren’t going well, he would ask, ‘Do you want to run at it harder or back up?’ and tell me that I have to take a different approach. That’s always stuck with me.” That tenacity has served Orr and her company well during the pandemic. Al­ though staffing levels have declined slightly since the start, the business has continued to serve clients. If there’s been an upside to current events, Orr says it’s the fact the company has had more time to examine its business model. One of the most valuable lessons Orr says she learned from her father was the importance of helping others. It’s a lesson that influences her dealings with everyone from customers to staff, and something she hopes she will be remembered for in the same way that her dad and grandfather are remembered. “I’m very passionate about leaving things better than I found them – doing a better job preparing those who are coming up be­ hind us to help them skill up and teach them what we know. I have a lot of young people around me at work and I love watching them grow. I’m teaching them, but they’re teaching me a lot too.”


CATHLEEN PETER-SWART, WESTCOR CONSTRUCTION LTD. Cathleen Peter-Swart never expected to have a career in construction. “Oh, abso­ lutely not,” she says with a laugh. Peter-Swart, vice-president of corporate services and people champion for Westcor Construction Ltd., took a rather circuitous route to get to where she is today. She stud­ ied law in her native South Africa and had her own practice there for about a decade before she and her husband decided to emi­ grate to Canada seven years ago. “When I was practicing law there was never a thought that I would not practice law. But as much as I enjoyed law, it didn’t ever fill my cup. I always felt there was something missing, and the move to Cana­ da allowed me to reinvent myself,” she says. Since a big part of her legal practice had been labour law, she decided to pursue a ca­ reer in human resources management and landed a job as HR manager with the City of Chestermere soon after arriving in her ad­ opted homeland. Three years ago she joined Westcor, where she oversees a number of essential support functions including hu­ man resources, finance, administration, of­ fice management, and LEAN integration, as well as strategy development and execution. Even though Peter-Swart no longer prac­ tices law, the skills she developed in her pre­ vious career have given her a competitive

advantage. She still uses some of the skills currently, especially her ability to examine and evaluate information as well as under­ standing and interpreting how things relate to one another. These have proven to be invaluable during the pandemic and she played a key role in helping create Westcor’s COVID-19 response plan as one of its pan­ demic response coordinators. One of the highlights of her time with Westcor, Peter-Swart says, has been hav­ ing the opportunity to work with company president and CEO Bob Robinson, who has served as a mentor for her. Peter-Swart has been actively involved in a number of committees with the Cal­ gary Construction Association (CCA) and Canadian Construction Association. She is especially passionate about the CCA’s diver­ sity and inclusion work. She was the driving force behind the CCA’s three-part Start with Self workshop series designed to help par­ ticipants achieve personal excellence and encourage them to leave their mark in the world. “A lot of the work that really fills my cup is being able to give back to the industry through training and development. For me personally, I want my legacy to be that I used the experience I had to inspire and support people to develop themselves per­

“I would never be great in a job where I moved paper or filled out spread sheets. That doesn’t inspire me much, and I’m not that good at it. I love to see projects come to life and leave a legacy for the city.”

When Kate Thompson began considering options for a post-secondary education, she wondered if there was a way to combine her long-time interests in drawing and numbers. Turns out there was. “I thought I’d try architecture,” she recalls. “I figured if it didn’t work out I’d go and do some­ thing different, but I never looked back. It was really a good merger of my personality and my skillset. I loved the creative side of things, but also the logical, mathematical side as well as the systems and bringing people together.” Thompson worked as an architect for a de­ cade before joining the Calgary Municipal Land Corp. (CMLC) in 2013 as a director of develop­ ment, a position in which she oversaw work on the city’s stunning Central Library project. The CMLC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the City of Calgary tasked with revitalizing the Rivers District and $1.3 billion in area improvements. She was named president and CEO of the CMLC in January 2020, and it’s a dream job for Thompson, who says she was attracted by the very tangible nature of the work the corpora­ tion does. “I’m very motivated by built projects and I’m motivated by seeing change,” she says. “I would never be great in a job where I moved paper or filled out spread sheets. That doesn’t inspire me much, and I’m not that good at it. I love to see projects come to life and leave a legacy for the city.” In addition to her role with the CMLC, Thompson also serves as an adjunct professor with the Faculty of Environmental Design at the University of Calgary. Although she doesn’t get to spend as much time in the classroom as

she would like to these days, Thompson re­ mains passionate about working with the next generation of architects. “I benefitted from some fantastic instruction and professors over my lifetime and career. You have to pay that forward,” says Thompson, who grew up in Winnipeg and attended the Univer­ sity of Manitoba. “I had great mentorship growing up and go­ ing through the profession, and I think it’s part of agreeing to be a part of the profession and part of a community that you help those com­ ing behind you to achieve success.” One of the most influential people in Thomp­ son’s own career was Carl Nelson, a landscape architecture professor at the U of M and one of her personal mentors. “I remember this one line he told me when I was starstruck over one of the architects he had taught and worked with. He said, ‘these people are just like you and me; they put their pants on one leg at a time’. It was really a grounding force for me,” she says. “I get to work with some really fantastic people now who are well published and high profile, but I still hear Carl in the back of my mind saying they are still just people.” Although Thompson remains focused on the here and now, she acknowledges that she has begun thinking about what her legacy might be once her career winds down. “Legacy is such an interesting concept. Is legacy what you leave in terms of brick and mortar or how you act as a human being? I would hope my legacy would be a combina­ tion of both things. I would hope my legacy is a quality urban environment, a great family, and strong friendships. If I can achieve that, I will be proud.” n

Green Line LRT 9 Avenue N. rendering.

Event Centre, LRT will play key roles in transforming Calgary By Jim Timlick Between the struggles faced by the oil and gas sector and the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 could ultimately go down as one of the most difficult years ever in the history of Calgary. While neither situation is likely to be re­ solved in the short term, there is a growing sense of optimism building about the city’s future. Perhaps one of the most tangible bits of evidence of that growing optimism is the fact that the city is about to embark on two of the most ambitious building projects in its 146-year history. Preliminary work recently began on the Green Line light rail transit (LRT) project, which at a projected cost of $4.9 billion

makes it the largest infrastructure project in Calgary’s history. Later this year, construc­ tion is expected to begin on a new $550 mil­ lion, state-of-the-art Event Centre to replace the aging Scotiabank Saddledome. The Green Line LRT is being funded by the three levels of government and is ex­ pected to create 12,000 direct new jobs and another 8,000 spinoff jobs as part of the first

GREEN LIGHT FOR GREEN LINE The first phase of the Green Line LRT will run 20 kilometres and will connect 16th Av­ enue in north Calgary with 126th Avenue in the south end of the city. It will complement the existing Red Line and Blue Line LRT lines already in place. Preliminary work has already begun on relocating some utilities and landfills as well as separating the Green

A study conducted by the City of Calgary suggests the Green Line will save Calgarians about 10,000 hours a day in travel time and allow some two-car families to ditch their second vehicle. More importantly, Thompson says it will serve as a catalyst for re­ development in downtown Calgary where of­ fice vacancy rates have soared in recent years. “Transit is one of those things that attracts that sort of next generation of workers. They’re really looking for vibrant spaces with great ac­ cess to public transit,” he says. “If we want to think about how we make Calgary competitive in the future economy, we have to start think­ ing about how we make it easier for that next generation of worker to move around using transit.” One of the more unique aspects of the Green Line project is that it will use a Design-Buildand-Finance model, which involves awarding a single contract for design, construction, and partial financing. “It will really put the designer and the con­ tractor working together on the same team,” says Thompson. “We think whenever you have good designers and contractors working close together there’s a really good synergy there. It allows the teams to come up with innovative so­ lutions and it gives them the flexibility to really drive better value for the citizens of Calgary.” Unlike the city’s two existing LRT lines, the Green Line will use new “low floor” trains that will allow users to more easily embark or dis­ embark from the vehicle. “The existing trains have served us well and they continue to serve us well, but it’s really 1960s technology,” says Thompson. “These cars

will make for a train that’s better integrated into the communities when we’re running in those communities, and they can still oper­ ate at the same speeds as our existing trains when we’re outside of those communities and need to move faster.” As with any project of this scale, the Green Line will have to deal with a number of con­ struction challenges. One of those challenges will be the geology and higher water tables in the city’s urban downtown core. Calgary will also be competing for skilled construction workers with other cities such as Toronto, Vancouver, and Seattle who are undertaking

their own transit projects. “We’re definitely not the only project out there so we need to make sure we have a competitive project that’s attractive to com­ panies to bid on,” says Thompson. Some questions have been raised as to why Calgary is going ahead with the Green Line project at a time when public transit use is down as a result of the pandemic. Thompson says that the expectation is that transit rider­ ship numbers will rebound once most people have been immunized and are working in an office environment again.

As recently as 2017, the Event Centre ap­ peared to be dead in the water when the parties involved couldn’t work out a deal. An Event Centre assessment committee was struck later that year following the civic election and a new deal was worked out that will see the city and CSEC split the cost of the new $550-million fa­ cility that will serve as a new home to the NHL Flames, WHL Hitmen, and NLL Roughnecks, as well as host concerts and other events. Jeff Davison, a Calgary city councillor who chaired the Event Centre committee, says that while the Saddledome remains one of the city’s most iconic structures, it’s nearing the end of its lifespan. Construction of the Event Centre is sched­ uled to begin later this year and is expected to complete in 2024. It will be located north of Stampede Park on a two-block piece of prop­ erty the city acquired in a land swap with the Calgary Stampede. The Saddledome will be demolished once work on the new facility is complete. It is expected to be a major catalyst for in­ vestment and redevelopment in Calgary’s Riv­

ers District, including a number of high-rise residential developments. In addition, Davi­ son says the city’s projections show the facil­ ity will generate approximately $400 million in revenue for the city over the term of the 35-year deal with CSEC, including a share of the naming rights and ticket revenues. About $75 million of that amount will be invested in amateur sports and local organizations. Last June, the Calgary Municipal Land Cor­ poration (CMLC), a wholly owned subsidiary of the City of Calgary, announced the firms that had been selected to lead the design and construction of the Event Centre. The major­ ity of those firms are based in Calgary includ­ ing co-designer Dialog and CANA Construc­ tion Management. “Absolutely, it was by design,” says Davison. “From the get-go, this had to be a project by Calgarians for Calgarians. Part of our goal right now is putting hard-working Calgarians back to work. That was incredibly important to the idea of what we were building even prepandemic.” The city has held several online public con­ sultations about the project and Davison says the response has been phenomenal. While it will be sometime before the final design for the new facility is unveiled, Davison says one of the recurring messages from members of the public is that the facility needs to be inte­ grated into the neighbouring community. “I imagine it will have a unique Calgary look. I don’t know what that will be yet, but the idea is that it’s got to be part of the community. You shouldn’t be walking down the road and all of a sudden there’s this giant spaceship in the middle of the road,” he says, adding that one of the biggest design challenges with the 19,000-seat facility will be incorporating it into a tight parcel of land and still offer streetfacing retail space. Davison says he believes the Event Centre will not only change the landscape of the city, but also the way Calgary views itself. “When things start coming out of the ground and we start seeing what’s possible and what we’ve accomplished as Calgarians, that’s a really positive thing. Looking at all the things we’ve been through, the economic de­ cline, the crash in oil, the pandemic, Calgar­ ians have to remember we’re a resilient city and there’s probably no more important time in our history to remember that.” n

UNDER CONSTRUCTION Cities past and present have adapted to uncertainty, the future is no different Contemporary city planning, as we know it, was born out of a necessity to address com­ municable diseases. Conditions in cities more than 100 years ago were the breeding grounds for infectious diseases such as cholera and yellow fever. In Lower Manhattan, overcrowding and inad­ equate systems for garbage and sewage led to polluted water infrastructure. New York officials turned their attention to the develop­ ment of sanitation systems, which launched a global rethink of the design and redesign of cities, infrastructure, and architecture to manage and minimize the risk of infectious disease. Today, the world is faced with a similar obstacle. COVID-19, which was declared a pan­ demic in March of 2020, saw cities mandating lockdowns — asking residents to stay indoors and non-essential businesses and operations to shutter their doors — in an attempt to re­ duce the chances of community spread of the novel coronavirus. To align with social-dis­ tancing recommendations, many Canadian cities closed often-crowded places, such as recreation centres and public facilities, urged cancellation of non-essential gatherings, and introduced protocols enabling employees to work from home. While the pandemic has undoubtedly af­ fected many aspects of our lives, adding com­ plexity, uncertainty, and anxiety — people have found ways to adjust. At a neighbour­ hood level, we have seen the incredible ways in which people have cared for one another. Even with physical-distancing measures in effect, people found ways to connect, includ­ ing rooftop singalongs, applauding in unison in support of health-care workers, and install­ ing various forms of art in their windows for those strolling by.


Calgary Construction Association

At a city level, we have seen governments accelerate the need to adapt and evolve as COVID-19 has exacerbated existing urban issues. Municipalities shut down streets to vehicle traffic to allow movement of people, converted vacant buildings into temporary shelter for those experiencing homelessness, and public participation processes were ex­ plored through digital alternatives.

themselves from others. The destination — vibrant places, commu­ nity connection, and economic development — remains the same, but cities are now at a different starting point. The construction industry was not im­ mune to the uncertainty and disruption of the pandemic either. Construction sites in many countries shut down, or faced agitated supply chains and operational restrictions. The industry had to adjust and pivot, and had

to find ways to keep their projects afloat, to align their processes with provincial and mu­ nicipal orders, and to ensure their construc­ tion sites were safe. Dr. Tamer E. El-Diraby, a civil engineer­ ing professor at the University of Toronto, notes that while the construction sector was able to develop new supply chains and adopt safe procedures and processes during the pandemic, additional research is needed to support future pandemic preparedness (ConstructConnect, 2021). Supported by the Residential and Civil Construction Alli­ ance of Ontario, the Residential Construction Council of Ontario, and the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers, Dr. El-Diraby is undertaking a three-phased study with con­ struction stakeholders to discuss and develop solutions and best practices guidelines.

BUILDING KNOWLEDGE Local research and insights are emerging in Alberta. The Calgary Construction Asso­ ciation, in partnership with Bird Construc­ tion Association, PCL, Lafarge, EllisDon,

and others, developed a guide at the height of the pandemic; Pandemic Planning for the Construction Industry, a centralized source of information and resources to help the con­ struction industry during the pandemic. “We needed to respond as one industry and if this were to be possible it could only be achieved through an unprecedented level of collaboration across all organizations,” says Bill Black, president and COO of the Calgary Construction Association. “This was particu­ larly important as many organizations in our industry do not have internal resources to create such content while other larger orga­ nizations do.” The guide shares with its readers policy examples for physical distancing and sani­ tation, supply chain audits, contracts, and working from home. Templates are abundant in the guidebook, including a Health Check Questionnaire, Daily Preventative Measures Checklist, and Return to Work Declaration Form, as well as posters and site signage. Bob Robinson, president and CEO of Westcor, saw the Pandemic Planning for the

Construction Industry document as an op­ portunity to “drop competitiveness and trade secrets for worker protection and to instill posi­ tive public confidence.” Those shared lessons learned, Robinson notes, are key to the construction industry’s success during and after this pandemic. “From a leadership perspective, we recognized that humour, positivity, reaching out, and goal set­ ting are key elements to being successful to these unprecedented challenges,” says Robin­ son. “This does not change post-pandemic. COVID­-19 has reminded us about the impor­ tance of spending time developing and imple­ menting business continuity strategies and tactics.” Alberta Roofing Contractors (ACA) was one of many from the construction industry to have contributed to the document. Karen Ruther­ ford, ACA’s executive manager, noted, “It be­ came apparent that different organizations had good ideas and were implementing protocols that would benefit others. The sharing of ideas was generous and without hesitation. And by sharing our best efforts, we hoped to create a

best practices benchmark for the benefit of owners, general contractors, and a myriad of sub trades.” Robinson implemented a wide-range of tactics from the Pandemic Planning for the Construction Industry document, including digital documentation, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) provision, and protocols for on-site work. “We are constantly putting our heads to­ gether to deal with ongoing challenges and to come up with creative solutions,” he added. “At the early onset of COVID-19, when PPE was not readily available, we had a couple of our in­ novative employees come up with a function­ ing design for masks and they proceeded to 3D print them. Other employees put together a user-friendly QR code-based contact-tracing protocol that we use at our project sites and of­ fice today.”

NEW NORMAL, NEW CHALLENGES COVID-19 has seeped into our cities, streets, homes, and minds. With it came a challenge to adjust to a new normal — from wearing masks in public spaces to physically distancing ourselves and sanitizing religiously. While construction workers have always used PPE to protect themselves, Rutherford noted how the pandemic brought with it new expectations and standards on site, such as in­ creased cleaning and sanitization of hard sur­ faces and equipment, health screenings, train­ ing, and support.

“To this day, the costs of these changes to keep job sites safe and active are being born by the industry,” says Rutherford. The Pandemic Planning for the Construc­ tion Industry guide calls on access to handwashing and sanitizing stations, frequent cleaning of touched objects and surfaces, pan­ demic preparedness training, and limiting the size of staff and visitors on site — measures that support adequate physical distancing and sanitation. The guide also highlights a variety of contractual considerations, from clearly in­ dicating to clients and industry partners how disruptions of work might occur, to provisions that address unforeseen delay such as ‘Force Majeure’ clauses. Other tools such as Supply Chain Audits, a tool to identify and deter­ mine the impact of supply chain interruption, and Return-to-Work Protocols, are identified throughout the guide as important pandemic measures.

dustry provide a useful playbook on how they may support the recovery of communities and economies in their cities. While strategies like increased digitization or identifying alternative suppliers can support the immediate construction and development needs of the industry, it will be important to look beyond the immediate crisis and begin to think about the next chapter, the next chal­ lenge. “Post-pandemic, there is a fear of returning to our silos,” says Rutherford. “I hope we con­ tinue to work together to solve other industry problems, and as challenges arise in the future, I hope we recall the collaborative success dur­ ing the pandemic and remember that we as an industry are stronger together.” Black says the level of collaboration between construction industry partners was a career highlight — and it was an unprecedented op­ portunity to nurture an open-source mentality.

ACA ADVOCACY UPDATE By Ken Gibson, Executive Director The Alberta Construction Association ad­ vanced member interests on numerous ad­ vocacy fronts in 2020. ACA advocacy for increased flexibility in overtime averaging agreements paid off with the passage of Bill 32 “Restoring Bal­ ance in Alberta’s Workplaces Act”. ACA partnered with the Alberta Trade Contractors Coalition and the GC Alliance of Canada to lead the commercial con­ struction industry response in prompt pay consultations. There is strong alignment among industry groups to adopt much of the Ontario legislative approach for prompt pay. Bill 37, Builders’ Lien (Prompt Pay­ ment) Amendment Act was introduced in the Fall 2020 sitting. The Government of Alberta accepted ACA’s recommendation to put the detail in the Regulations, as it is difficult to change Acts of the Legislature once enacted. ACA


has been invited to provide a technical ex­ pert to assist with the drafting of the Regu­ lations over the next few months. Bill 37 has been amended to mandate progressive release of holdback and to mandate a payment cycle of 28 days, 7 days, 7 days etc. down the contractual chain. Amended Bill 37 also now mandates an in­ voicing cycle not to exceed 31 days. These amendments address ACA concerns and are positive developments for industry. Some of the items that require greater work through the Regulations include: • Concrete has a special carveout with a liens period of 90 days, with the rest of the commercial industry at 60 days. Careful thought is required to ensure lien rights and progressive release of holdback re­ main workable and equitable when one part of the contractual chain operates with a longer timeframe.

• ACA recommended disputes between prime and subconsultants be included, Service Alberta believes this can be ad­ dressed in the Regulations. • Bill 37 reaffirms and adds to an existing provision where persons within the con­ tract chain can demand reports on pay­ ment from owners and general contrac­ tors. Careful consideration is required in drafting the Regulations to balance trans­ parency and administrative burden. • Bill 37 mandates adjudicator decisions as final and binding, unlike Ontario where adjudicator decisions are interim and binding. ACA has lobbied the Min­ ister but it appears that the government believes our concerns can be addressed through Regulations. Beyond supporting development of the Regulations, ACA continues to work with partners to become an Authorized Nomi­ nating Authority for appointment of adju­ dicators for May 2021. ACA, the Alberta Trade Construction Coalition, and the General Contractors Alliance of Canada, are advocating to be a Nominating Body for payment dispute adjudicators to ensure industry expertise and affordable cost for industry. ACA successfully lobbied for the ap­ pointment of three former ACA chairs to the Skills for Jobs Task Force: Paul Heyens, Paul Verhesen, and Colin Ward. The Skills for Jobs Task Force has been appointed to find ways to expand and strengthen ap­ prenticeship education and skilled trades opportunities to meet labour demands. The Task Force final report supports a num­ ber of ACA recommendations to promote trades education. Last summer, the Government of Al­

berta launched a review of the Workers’ Compensation Act to ensure job creators and workers benefit from a workers’ com­ pensation system that is fair, affordable, and sustainable. ACA’s submission highlighted changes to return WCB to a no-fault insurance sys­ tem rather than a social program funded by employers. The Government of Alberta also invited stakeholders to submit comments to in­ form potential legislative reform of OHS legislation and its associated regulations to improve health and safety outcomes, while enabling innovation and competitiveness. ACA’s submission highlights the need for evidence-based regulation that demon­ strates actual improvements in jobsite safe­ ty, not burdensome administration. With the Fall 2020 Sitting of the Legis­ lature, the Government of Alberta intro­ duced Bill 47: Ensuring Safety and Cutting Red Tape Act. Upon initial review, ACA supports many of the proposals of the Bill:


Calgary Construction Association



• Added ACA’s recommended definition of a construction worksite. • Increase flexibility on multi-employer work sites with more than 20 workers by requiring prime contractors to have an OHS contact on site to liaise with work­ ers and employers on health and safety matters in lieu of a health and safety com­ mittee. • Maximize flexibility in OHS programs by removing most prescriptive requirements in the OHS Act. ACA’s recommendation to eliminate re­ porting of potentially serious incidents was not accepted, but Bill 47 proposes to clarify and streamline reporting requirements and prohibit the information from being used in enforcement actions including pros­ ecutions. ACA met with OHS in March to further discuss implementation of the new legislation.

• Repeal the obligation to reinstate and duty to accommodate from the legislation (ACA recommended repeal of the obliga­ tion introduced in the 2018 changes to the WCB Act). • Amend WCA to allow WCB to cease or reduce earning loss benefits when modi­ fied work is terminated by the employer due to egregious acts (this is a long stand­ ing ACA request). • Reinstate cap on maximum insurable earnings (ACA recommendation). • Return to pre-2018 definition of cost of living adjustments (ACA recommenda­ tion). • Repeal the legislated requirement for employers to continue paying contribu­ tions to existing health benefit plan after worker injury (pre-2018 approach) (ACA recommendation). • Revisit provisions regarding occupational

disease, psychological injury, benefit of doubt, and presumptive coverage (ACA recommendation). ACA recently provided feedback on the corresponding WCB policies to implement the revised legislation. ACA former chair Paul Verhesen was appointed co-chair of the Red Tape Reduc­ tion Industry Panel for the Construction Sector and Ken Gibson appointed to chair the Vertical Construction sub-group. The panel provides advice to the Government of Alberta on regulatory burden with the view to eliminating red tape that is costing Alberta business. A key ask of ACA was to revisit allocation of risk in government contracts. In February 2021, the govern­ ment announced a review of its procure­ ment policies.


Calgary Construction Association

ACA provided input on the Alberta In­ frastructure Act and 20-Year Capital Plan. The Act is intended to serve as a legislated governance framework for capital planning in Alberta. The 20-Year Plan is intended to be a visionary document that considers long-term trends and priorities for pro­ vincial infrastructure. ACA recommends economic criteria to determine priorities, incenting private capital for public infra­ structure, and looking beyond capital plan­ ning to address issues of predictable capital programs, funding, and procurement. ACA lobbied the government for rec­ ognition of COVID-related costs in cur­ rent and future procurements, including a presentation to the Standing Commit­ tee on Alberta’s Economic Future in sum­ mer of 2020. ACA continues to advocate

for fair allocation of unknowable COVID risks with specific recognition cost and / or schedule impacts. In February, ACA wrote to the Premier to request a meeting to dis­ cuss industry concerns on this issue. ACA was pleased with the Canadian Infrastructure Bank (CIB) announcement of $2 billion for energy retrofits for build­ ings. ACA has lobbied the CIB directly and sought the support of the Canadian Construction Association for this advo­ cacy. ACA is now supporting a new energy retrofit program of the Alberta Urban Mu­ nicipalities Association which will bring much needed work for our members across the province. ACA also continues dialogue with the Canada Green Building Council and other partners to advocate for addi­ tional investment in building retrofits. n

This will be fine now, but in 10 years’ time this might not be functioning as well if the climate change predictions are accurate,’” he says. “It’s a real opportunity to show that as a


contractor, you understand the opportuni­ ties and you understand the different ways of looking at sustainability.” Grace believes it’s best to have a discus­ sion like this right at the beginning of a project and if possible, to get something in writing if there’s clear agreement.

“When you’re starting construction, if the documents you’re bidding on are not clear on what the sustainable design goals are for the project, you need to ask that question because that represents a risk,” he says. “When a building isn’t doing what it’s supposed to do, then that’s when everybody starts falling out with each other, and it gets messy. So, we can avoid a lot of that by hav­ ing that early conversation.”

GOING GREEN IN VANCOUVER Sean Pander manages the Green Building Program in Vancouver, which has the lofty goal of becoming the world’s Greenest City. The program first established by Vancouver City Council in 2011 is making lots of headway in that regard, thanks to a sustainable building strategy crafted in large part by Pander. “The first part of formulating vision or a plan is being very, very clear on the outcomes that you’re trying to achieve. What is the objective, and what are the problems you’re trying to solve?” Pander asks. He suggests that once a clear vision and goals are in place, the next step is to gather relevant data and set measurable targets for the major components of the sustainable building plan. “I think a third step is really understanding that you can’t advance high performance without significant regard to how the building will function or how it’s used,” he says. “We realized that for us to be successful long term, we couldn’t roll out these buildings that might be great for the environment, but people didn’t to want to live in or they couldn’t be productive in.” Pander says part of what makes Vancouver Green Team’s sustainable building strategy successful is that there’s been a lot of input from innovation leaders in the private sector. The Heights is a multi-unit residential building completed in Vancouver in 2017. It is Passive House certified, and according to Vancouver Green Building Program manager Sean Pander, The Heights is a great example of how a project designer, builder, and developer can work together and achieve success on a collaborative sustainable building project.

“We found that there was a significant minority of experienced designers and developers who really were keen to improve how buildings were built and improve their performance,” he says. “They revealed to us things that we didn’t think were possible were actually not that hard, and some things that we thought were working well, weren’t working at all.”

BUILDING A BETTER WORLD Chandos Construction does things a little differently By Jim Timlick It’s not very often you will see the owner of a multi-million-dollar company come into work each day with their sleeves rolled up and prepared to get their hands dirty. As unusual as such a scenario might seem at many workplaces, it’s an everyday occur­ rence at Chandos Construction. Founded in 1980, Chandos is one of a growing number of employee-owned Canadian construction companies and has been since day one. What differentiates it from many other employee-owned enterprises is the fact that its ownership ranks include everyone from frontline employees on job sites to middle management. In fact, every single Chandos employee, including hourly workers, has the option to buy shares in the business and company executives make up less than 40 per cent of Chandos’ nearly 200 employeeowners. The Chandos ownership model is in­ spired by the one used by the Mondragon Corporation in Spain, one of the largest and most successful worker cooperatives in the world. Former CEO and current executive

The Scenic Grande, one of Chandos Construction’s communityfocused projects, provides seniors with independent and assisted living accommodation and amenity space in northwest Calgary. chair, Tom Redl, travelled to Spain several years ago to tour Mondragon firsthand. He was so impressed by what he saw overseas that he determined a similar ownership strategy would be a perfect fit for Chandos and give it a competitive advantage here in Canada. Nicole Monaco, director, marketing and communication, says one of the benefits of Chandos’ employee ownership model is the fact that it encourages a sense of entre­ preneurship among workers at every level of the company. It has also helped create a stronger bond among employees.

WORKING TOGETHER “In most companies, you really only con­ trol your own destiny and often times you only think about your own performance or team,” says Monaco. “In this employee

ownership model, someone like me is also contributing to the success of the 200 other owners in the company. We’re all working together. We all earn a share of the profits. It’s a great way to incentivize and it attracts talent as well.” Chandos has been following its own path since it was launched 40 years ago by co-founders Dan O’Brien and Don Coyne. That fact is reflected in the company’s name. Rather than choosing a name that paid homage to themselves, the founders chose the name of a lake in Ontario they both had a connection to so that the com­ pany would live on even after they were no longer a part of it. Now entering its third generation of leadership, Chandos continues to follow that tradition of doing things a little bit dif­ ferently.

FEATURE | Chandos The Scenic Grande consists of an independent living facility, and an assisted living and care facility, connected by a common area that includes administration offices, a swimming pool, fitness space, kitchen and dining rooms, and a lounge.

For example, it is the largest B Corp Cer­ tified commercial builder in North America and the only one in Canada. B Corp is a third-party certification program that has been adopted by more than 3,500 compa­ nies around the world. Companies must go through a rigorous certification process that looks at everything from workplace diver­ sity to carbon emissions and community impact.

DIFFERENT KIND OF MEASURE “Essentially, the program measures a company’s social and environmental per­ formance across the entire organization,” Monaco says. “Instead of just measuring a company based on financial performance, B Corp also looks through a lens of society and the planet.” Chandos has been B Corp certified since

2016. In its most recent recertification it received a score of 107.4 of a possible 200 points. For the past two years it has been ranked one of the top B Corp certified com­ panies for workers, in large part because of its employee ownership model and a desire to make positive social change in the con­ struction industry. As part of the company’s pledge to build­ ing a better community, Chandos has com­ mitted to an ambitious waste diversion goal to divert a minimum of 80 per cent of waste from every project it builds by recycling as much concrete, wood, paper, plastic, metal, and drywall as possible. Over the past four years the company’s waste diversion rates have been close to 80 per cent. Chandos was also an early adopter of LEED, a certification program aimed at promoting human and en­

It just makes sense and it feels like the right thing to do.” Chandos has enjoyed tremendous growth since it opened its first office in Edmonton in 1980. A second office was added a short

time later in Calgary and it now has offices in Red Deer, Vancouver, Kelowna, Toronto, and Ottawa. Its employee ranks have swelled to almost 500 people across the country.

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSIVITY As Chandos continues to grow, its com­ mitment to diversity and inclusive hiring practices has remained one of the com­ pany’s key values. It recently took part in B Corp’s Inclusive Economy Challenge which sets goals to improve diversity, equity, and

inclusion efforts through a series of initia­ tives that include a women’s affinity group, cultural awareness and unconscious bias training for staff, and hiring and promoting women in roles that have been traditionally male-dominated. It has also partnered with several community organizations to create employment and training opportunities for individuals facing barriers or who are un­ derrepresented in the construction industry. “We are an organization that wants to lead the way in the construction industry in creating a more diverse workforce. We’re very focused on how we make sure that in five or 10 years our company across all levels reflects Canadian society,” says Owen Nord­ mark, Chandos’ vice-president and district manager for the Calgary district. Like virtually every Canadian business, Chandos has not escaped the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. It has had to change a number of policies and practices to help keep both staff and members of the public safe. One of the first measures it took after the pandemic was declared was to strike a taskforce to investigate how job sites could continue to function without compromising the safety of employees. Construction man­ agers and superintendents worked closely with staff to implement new safety practices and adjust them based on feedback. That in­ cluded installing handwashing stations at all job sites and posting safety tips on the social networking website Yammer. “When the pandemic hit us in March 2020, no one knew exactly what to do or how to deal with it,” Nordmark recalls. “But sometimes the best test of a company and its culture is how it reacts in situations like this. I am amazed at how well the entire leader­ ship team worked together under the ex­ treme pressure of the unknown. We figured

COMMITMENT TO INNOVATION One of the trademarks of Chandos dur­ ing its four decades in business has been its commitment to innovation. That commit­ ment is reflected in initiatives such as its In­ novation Leaders program that encourages employees to submit ideas for pilot proj­ ects on things such as sustainable building methods, productivity enhancements, and safety improvements. It is also planning to ramp up efforts this year to find ways of re­ ducing the company’s carbon footprint. The company’s innovative approach is perhaps most notable in many of the build­ ing projects it has undertaken. One of the more recent projects was the Scenic Grande seniors housing project in Calgary. The $58

It was also the lead builder on a passive hous­ ing project in Kamloops that featured a ro­ bust super seal to prevent energy loss.

To get it to LEED platinum status was a huge win for the team,” says Nordmark. “Working through these really complicated projects where others are working or liv­ ing in the building or the project is in a re­ ally tight downtown space; that’s one of our strengths as a builder.” n

PROMPT PAYMENT Bill 27 ensures quicker compensation As any experienced construction profes­ sional is aware, delays and unexpected complications are common on most proj­ ects, large and small. These delays not only affect the overall completion date, but they also often mean that contractors and subcontractors will be paid later than planned. Sometimes payment is held back until the full project is done, meaning professionals can be left waiting months or even years be­ fore being compensated for their services or materials. The Alberta government has recently taken steps to address this with the imple­ mentation of Bill 27: The Builders’ Lien (Prompt Payment) Amendment Act, 2020. One of the key pieces of the legislation is a prompt payment process that should go a long way in ensuring contractors and

sub-contractors receive compensation in a timely fashion.

WHAT WAS THE PROBLEM WITH PAYMENT IN THE PAST? Prior to the introduction of Bill 27, there was no time limit in place for either cus­ tomers, contractors, or sub-contractors to pay for work. The lack of definitive time­ lines created what was referred to as a “pay when paid” system, which meant that in­ dividual parties would only be paid for their goods or services once payment for the entire project was received. Of course, this meant that if a job was delayed, even if the delay was unrelated to a contractor’s work, that contractor may not receive funds until the delay was resolved. These types of policies put sub-contractors at a significant


economic disadvantage. While Alberta had not yet legislated payment rules on con­ struction projects, other jurisdictions such as Ontario and Saskatchewan had.

28-DAY PAYMENT DEADLINE The section of Bill 27 likely to have the most noteworthy impact for people work­ ing in the construction industry is the in­ troduction of a mandate that invoices from contractors or sub-contractors must be paid within 28 days of receipt. The legislation further prohibits “pay when paid” clauses in contracts. Contractors submitting invoices for prompt payment are required to submit in­ voices detailing the work done or materials furnished as well as a reference to a written

(403) 269-7220 HMC Lawyers LLP #320 903 8th Ave SW Calgary, AB T2P 0P7

or verbal contract outlining the work that was to be done. If an owner receives an invoice and wish­ es to dispute it, they now have 14 days to provide the contractor with notice of, and reasons for, the dispute. Additionally, con­ tractors now have seven days after receiving full payment for work to pay any sub-con­ tractors they hired for the project. The Alberta Construction Association reacted positively to the news, stating, “These mechanisms help timely completion of construction projects, ensure our em­ ployees are not impacted by payment de­ lays, and provide better value for taxpayers on public infrastructure projects.”

CHANGES TO LIENS AND THE ADJUDICATION PROCESS Bill 27 also extends the time period in which liens can be submitted, introducing a 60-day time limit (with the exception of concrete projects, which have a 90-day time limit). The amount owing before a lien can be registered has also been increased to

$700 from a previous limit of $300. Additionally, Bill 27 provides a dispute resolution process that states parties to a contract may enlist an adjudicator to deal with any conflicts that arise between own­

ers, contractors, and subcontractors. The decisions by adjudicators are binding and final. This section of the Act intends to al­ low for a quicker and more cost-effective way to resolve disputes. n

Since 2007, the CMLC has transformed the East Village from an underutilized for­ mer industrial zone into one of the most

energetic neighbourhoods and destinations in Calgary. In partnership with the Calgary Stampede, the CMLC is now focusing on East Victoria Park, and the BMO Conven­ tion Centre expansion is the next major proj­ ect that will transform Calgary’s downtown east end into the Culture & Entertainment District. The $500-million project will more than

double its current space, increasing the total floor space to nearly one million square feet. And rather than creating a convention space that consumes entire city blocks, the CMLC saw the importance of making a space that integrated the structure with outdoor use­ able festival streets and urban plazas that are walkable and accessible. “The challenge with a project of this scale

is to consider how to build an expansion that is over 500,000 square feet that both inter­ acts and engages with its environment,” says Kate Thompson, president of CMLC. “Con­ vention centres are typically very inward fo­ cused. You enter the exhibit hall, go through the doors, and are lost in the building. We wanted to create an interactive space that pulls people out and through the building.” The CMLC and Calgary Stampede as­ sembled Stantec, Populous, and S2 Archi­ tecture to design and deliver the project.

The expansion design features three floors of tradeshow and convention space, includ­ ing new exhibition halls, two ballrooms, and a central hub and atrium. The exterior will provide space for retail and cafés, an outdoor plaza and pavilion, public art installations, and motor coach parking. “The architects and designers did an ex­ cellent job reaching out the form and creat­ ing plaza space previous not in the program,” says Thompson. “They really rose to the challenge, pushing the envelope with the creation.”

The new facility will incorporate the latest in conference design with adaptable meeting spaces, meeting rooms wired for connectiv­ ity, flexible breakout areas, and outdoor spac­ es. It will also provide 118,500 square feet of back-of-house service areas such as loading zones and food preparation space. CMLC and the Calgary Stampede have enlisted convention venue operations spe­ cialist HLT Advisory Inc., project manage­ ment firm M3 Development, and construc­ tion management by PCL Construction. For the year leading up to this spring’s groundbreaking, crews have been busy prep­ ping the site below the surface which includ­ ed utility relocates, demolition of the muchbeloved Coral, and capturing all the historic significance of that structure for generations to come. Thompson says that while conference activity has been paused due to the global pandemic, construction teams saw the sil­ ver lining and took advantage of this situa­ tion, performing much of the work while patrons were not around. “We’ve been under construction for a while, but now we will be building up so construction will be more vis­ ible,” she says. The BMO Convention Centre has been Calgary’s primary consumer and trade show venue since it was built in 1982. When the expansion is complete in 2024, the conven­ tion centre will be the largest facility in West­ ern Canada. And when all restrictions are re­ moved and people return to everyday activ­ ity, the building will remain fully operational and activated throughout construction. Thompson says that the CMLC has re­ ceived inquiries from other municipalities and organizations wanting to know more about how they developed their district plans. “It’s a great indicator that we are on the right track. I think the best thing we can do is share,” she says. However, their mission is to create experiences that are unique to Cal­ gary, “We are expected to be innovative, and this is a privilege that we take very seriously. People are drawn to great design and func­ tional spaces that are worthy of making it a destination. Our goal is to make the Culture & Entertainment District a place where peo­ ple want to spend their Saturday.” n

GOLD SEAL CERTIFICATION PROGRAM IS CHANGING The Gold Seal Certification program certifies estimators, foremen, owner’s construction managers, project managers, safety practitioners, and superintendents working in, or with, Canada’s non-residential construction industry. When you earn your Gold Seal Certified (GSC) or Professional, Gold Seal Certified (P.GSC) credential, you demonstrate excellence through certified experience and nationally recognized validation of your skills, competence, and knowledge. APPLICATION FRAMEWORK AND NEW TOOLS Beginning March 13, 2021, all applicants may enroll into the Gold Seal program at $425 plus applicable taxes and be approved as Gold Seal Interns (GSI), giving them up to five years to meet the Gold Seal Certified (GSC) application requirements and challenge the Gold Seal exam. The same minimum requirements apply (one year of Canadian experience in the designation or two years in an assistant’s role directly related to the designation). Applicants enrolling into the program may take advantage of new tools to identify the areas that they should get training on to maximize their chances of passing the exam as well as to estimate their credits to know whether they are ready to apply for their GSC. When the applicant meets the GSC requirements, they can fill out

their GSC application for $525 plus applicable taxes. Those appli­ cants who applied as GSCs but were approved as GSIs as an inter­ mediary step can submit their applications for final review free of charge. There are no changes to our highest level of the certification, the P.GSC credential.

NEW ETHICS COURSE A new, consolidated Construction Industry Ethics course will be available starting in April 2021. It will replace the requirement for the online and in-class/virtual portions of the course. Once the course is launched, new applicants will be required to take the re­ vised course. Applicants who took the previous online and in-class/ virtual courses will be given the same number of credits and they

STRENGTH IN TEAMS Almost one year ago to the day as I write this, it was ‘all hands-on deck’ as we trans­ ferred data and information from our old platform to a new provider. Two weeks after the province went into a formal lock­ down, this change was certainly not ex­ pected. Our unexpected change could be a case study in planning for the unexpected, but I look at it a bit differently. Rather than trying to plan for every unexpected outcome, I learned that we might benefit more from focusing on our people. Hav­ ing a team that trusts each other and has strong interpersonal relationships allowed us to make a quick decision with consen­ sus and manage a crisis with positive en­ ergy.

It was only 18 months prior to our tran­ sition that we partnered as 13 local con­ struction associations across the prairies. In those 18 months, we focused on the idea of working together as a unit and collabo­ rating to solve problems and improve our service. By sharing and learning from each other we built trust and formed relation­ ships that were bigger than our daily jobs and weekly meetings. This trust and friend­ ship allowed us to respond quickly to our platform crisis and work as a single unit toward the best outcome available. With­ out the trust and relationships built, who knows what the outcome would have been. Our platform is much improved, and we are leaning into member-focused features

as all of the ‘new car smell’ is off the plat­ form. Soon you can look forward to im­ proved bid matching, multi-word search, Invitation to Bid, an improved Dashboard, and our re-envisioned Directory. Our team continues to work closely together constantly challenging the status quo and working to improve all aspects of our ser­ vice. Who knows what the future will bring; I’m not going to try to predict it. With a team that trusts each other and is focused on the same goals, I have learned it doesn’t really matter. Good luck, Curtis Griffith Director, Business Development

Secrets of Success FEATURE | Feature

By Melanie Franner

The Calgary Construction Association showcases various members that have exceeded expectations during good times and bad. It is a way to celebrate a positive among our very own membership – especially during a time when positives are more elusive than usual.

Savvy thinking pays dividends WESTCOR CONSTRUCTION When the four founding partners started Westcor Construction in 2003, they were unanimous in their singular vision: to build a better world. Today, the company is 75-people strong and it has become a shin­ ing example of an organization dedicated to giving back. “From the outset, our vision was to build a better world for our clients, our employees, and our community,” says Bob Robinson, president and CEO, Westcor Construction. “We recognized early on that simply writing cheques to charities was not going to make

the kind of impact we wanted. We knew that we could make a bigger impact through sweat equity.” As a ‘people-first company’, Westcor Con­ struction has empowered its employees, through a mindset of continuous learning and sustainable growth, to enable change. Helping others is one of the company’s six core values – and an inherent facet of its very culture. “We use a value-based system that acts as a ‘north star’ for everybody within our orga­ nization,” says Robinson, who adds that the

company has a social committee that looks at how to leverage ideas to maximize impact. “There is no start and stop to our initiatives. Our efforts are ongoing. It’s embedded in our culture.” Westcor Construction has demonstrated the strength of its values each and every day of operation. It reached new heights, how­ ever, when employees chose to celebrate the company’s 15-year anniversary with the launch of its ‘Building a Better Community – A Westcor People-First Initiative’, a cam­ paign that drove 15 acts of kindness over 12

months during the course of 2018 and into 2019. The new initiative kicked off with an anti-bullying campaign that was enthusias­ tically received by business and community partners, and it generated enough money to deliver the program to 25 schools within Calgary. Other initiatives included a donation drive that collected 2,100 towels for the city’s Mustard Seed Shelter, a men’s clothing drive for the Calgary Drop-In Centre, a Back­ packs for Kids campaign that saw donations of school supply-filled backpacks to local schools. Westcor Construction leveraged all of these efforts with their business and com­ munity partners to increase impact. And it worked. The Building a Better Community Initiative proved to be a resounding success.


Calgary Construction Association

In 2019, the Canadian Construction As­ sociation (CCA) recognized the company’s efforts by bestowing it with the Commu­ nity Leadership Award. The much-coveted award recognizes a CCA member firm, partner association, or individual who has devoted their time and effort to the better­ ment of their communities. “Our employees were speechless,” says Robinson. “Our people are so proud to be a part of an organization that has been rec­ ognized nationally. We are truly humbled to receive the award because we know that we’re not the only company out there doing good things for the community. It has been an incredible honour to be acknowledged by the Canadian Construction Association.” The esteemed industry award has spurred more enthusiasm for performing these com­ munity acts of kindness. Although COV­ ID-19 has limited options as of late, Westcor Construction has found other innovative ways to continue to make a difference, such as an initiative that saw seniors receive per­ sonalized, hand-written holiday cards. The company most recently created a custom backdrop for the Make-a-Wish Foundation so that the organization can continue its very important fundraising efforts.

“We believe that if you have the capabil­ ity to act, you have the responsibility to act,” says Robinson. While Robinson admits that Westcor Construction is a business and, as such, needs to generate a profit at the end of the day, he also says that there is no reason why profit and community can’t co-exist. “We re­ ally believe – and have seen the results – that if you do things for the right reasons, then it becomes part of your brand,” he says. “And today, brand is becoming more and more meaningful for our clients.” Years ago, young companies starting out gained a foothold in the construction indus­ try by delivering the lowest bid. Today, how­ ever, things have changed. “People value giving back to the commu­ nity,” says Robinson. “Clients want to work with companies that have positive commu­ nity impact, and they realize that success comes from working with companies that have brands with strong value structures and act with integrity. If you’re looking for short-term success, then this may not be a good strategy for you. But everyone here at Westcor is definitely here for the long term.” n

“ Timing was everything, and we were fortunate enough to be in a position to be able to capitalize on it.” when we did. The growth from Edmonton and Vancouver is helping to offset the slow­ er business here in Calgary at the moment so our expansion has proven to be a good decision. We’re not putting all of our eggs in one basket.” United Supreme Group chose to aug­ ment its existing coatings business with the launch in January 2021 of its 23,000-square foot manufacturing facility that will focus solely on complex specialty coatings. Wal­ lace describes the launch as the accumula­ tion of two years of intensive R&D work. “We’re focused on thinking outside of the box. We’re breaking down the traditional vendor/contractor relationship and becom­ ing a single entity, a new concept if you will. From alpha to omega,” he says. “Our goal is to begin to offer specialty quality coatings later this year. We want to continue to find ways to take care of our clients to the best of our abilities.” Right now, this involves adding specialty coatings to the broad mix of commercial and industrial coatings that they currently offer to their diverse cliental. “We’re very relationship based,” says Wal­ lace. “We know that it’s important to keep our customers at the forefront of our mind at all times. We have to make sure that we are constantly providing solutions to our customers.” The key to success, according to Wallace, is to ensure that your clients meet with their own success. “We’re not just about applying coatings on our customers’ walls,” he says. “We’re actually helping them to be success­ ful. Our success is achieved through their success.” And with this type of business philoso­ phy, concludes Wallace, the sky’s the limit. n

“Almost overnight, our workload dropped to less than a $1 mil­ lion,” says Richard Munro, vice president of construction, Evolution Glass. By the summer of 2020, business was still looking grim. Richard sat down with president of Evolution Glass, Ashley Munro, and en­ tered into a serious discussion about whether to put their planned expansion on hold. “The move had been in the works for the past couple of years,” says Richard. “It was a big risk to go forward. We just had the rug pulled out from under our feet.” The road hasn’t been easy, but it has been one actively engaged by all members of the team. “We never shut down operations,” says Ashley. “We made the decision early on to keep the doors open. We made some accommodations for those who needed to work from home, but we continued to operate.” The company also made some key changes to its branding, creat­ ing three distinct divisions under its roof: service, special projects, and projects. The rebranding enabled the company to better focus on its customers, allotting resources and personnel to each of the

modate room for manufacturing, warehouse, offices, and a show­ room. “It’s going to be all about the experience,” says Richard, who says that the company hopes to have the official opening coincide with this year’s Calgary Stampede. “The second floor is all about the staff experience, with a lot of funky, collaborative rooms and open spac­ es. It’s been designed to be a highly motivating collaborative space. We jokingly refer to it as Google without the free lunches.” A beautiful, high-end glass staircase will connect the two floors. “The main floor is all about the customer experience,” says Richard. “It will include a massive showroom, like an art gallery.” This gal­ lery will be a testament to projects past and present, with photos of completed works, along with specialty designs and glass such as skylights and curtain walls. It will also include a replica made out of LEGO blocks of the company’s largest project to date: Brookfield Place. “We did the po­ dium, the bottom three floors of the tower, along with the three-

three divisions. And then they began the hard task of building the

storey, standalone Pavilion building,” recalls Richard. “It was about

HATS OFF TO A LEGEND Remembering Paul Polson By Melanie Franner Born in Winnipeg on September 30, 1952, Paul Hugh Polson grew up in Calgary – a city that he would eventually embrace in all aspects of his life. Over time, he would be defined by his love of community, of family and friends, and of his work. “His life goal was to connect with people,” says Jordan Polson, a project manager at Stuart Olson Construction and the young­ est of three sons born to Paul and his wife Laurie. The high-school sweethearts were married for almost 45 years before Paul’s passing on July 17, 2020. All three sons worked in the construc­ tion industry at some time. The oldest, Ty­ ler, moving on to become a teacher in the Rockyview School District, and Graham, working as senior project manager at Go­ van Brown & Associates Ltd.

DRAWING INSPIRATION Polson fell in love with architecture very early on, and pursued a professional desig­ nation in the field. He practiced in Alberta for 22 years, beginning his career with Laird Snow, which became Laird Polson Archi­ tects in 1983. In 1997, the company merged with two other architectural firms to become part of Stantec. Polson would lead this team for three years before joining Stuart Olson in 2001 as vice president of business develop­ ment. In 2014, he took on the mantle of se­ nior vice president of business development and community engagement. Throughout his career, Polson never lost his love of architecture. He was admitted to the Royal Architectural Institute of Cana­ da’s College of Fellows in 1992 and was dean from 2005 to 2010. He also led the team for the masterplan expansion of Bow Valley College and SAIT Polytechnic campuses.

Tasneem Rahim, director of fund devel­ opment and alumni engagement for Bow Valley College, acknowledges Polson’s im­ pact on the world of architecture. “Paul’s contribution to our community in Calgary and beyond has been tremendous, particu­ larly his work in connecting people so that they could work together for the greater good,” says Rahim. “We have felt this im­ pact and have been beneficiaries of these partnerships that have had a wonderful impact on our learners and Bow Valley College community.” Polson’s persistent focus on how citizens working and living in and around his proj­ ects were impacted during construction, as well as through architectural design, left a significant impression with many in the in­ dustry and beyond. So much so that some of his partnering principles have become processes. “Just looking at his years of involvement in designing, building, and helping shape some of the city’s landscapes and master­ plans, I can only fathom the true impact he has had on the people of Calgary,” says son Jordan.

RODEO REIGN Architecture remained a central theme of Polson’s life, but not the only one. He also became heartily engaged in the Cal­ gary Stampede. “I remember when we were young kids, my dad used to wake up me and my broth­ ers at something like five in the morning so we could find seats on the curb to watch the Calgary Stampede Parade,” recalls Jor­ dan. “We’d be there a good two or three hours before the parade even started.” Polson eventually took on a number of roles with the Calgary Stampede, volun­

teering for over 30 years and sitting on the Stampede’s Board of Directors from 2010 to 2020. Polson had an entire Stampede wardrobe and loved every moment he spent at the rodeo. “He was all about helping others achieve their goals,” explains Jordan. “He was dedi­ cated to doing what he could to help in its success. Western spirit was important to him and he loved being a part of what it meant.”

IN AND AROUND THE TOWN Polson’s love of all things Calgary ex­ tended to the theatre and arts scene. He was a Theatre Calgary board member for many years, and served as director there from 2010. He also served on the Calgary Chamber of Commerce from 1995 to 1999, and he was the president of the Alberta As­ sociation of Architects from 1989 to 1991. Other community endeavours included work with the 1983 Western Canada Sum­ mer Games, the 1988 Winter Olympics, and the city’s 2005 bid for the Goodwill Games. He was also the senior advisor of infrastructure for the 2026 Winter Olym­ pic Games Bid Committee. “He was a strong advocate of Calgary,” says Jordan. “He loved the city and he wanted to give back as much as he could.”

FAMILY FIRST Throughout his life, Polson managed to find that perfect blend of work and fam­ ily, socializing with people from work and extending that to the respective families involved. “His clients and colleagues were some of his best friends,” says Jordan. Regardless of how many hours Polson spent at work or in the community, he al­ ways put his family first. He made sure to attend the requisite hockey games, baseball practices, and school plays. Later in life, Paul and Laurie would travel extensively around the world, while the boys pursued their own careers and relation­ ships. But Polson’s love of Calgary – and the drive to fulfill the dreams and aspirations of Calgarians – had already been passed down to his three sons. “He always put other people first,” says Jordan. “Anything that was important to someone else became important to him. When I watched him interact with family and friends, he was always genuinely inter­ ested in what they had to say, regardless of their position within the company.” Today, there are people all across Cal­ gary who are remembering Paul Polson for his commitment, his perseverance, and his drive. But perhaps, most of all, Polson will be remembered for his desire to help others succeed. Jordan says of his father, “He used to always say ‘Give your time to everyone. That’s the most valuable thing you can give them.’” n
