And so it Begins

Grand opening for Taylor Centre for the Performing Arts By Melanie Franner

The interior of the Bella Concert Hall reflects the influences of the prairies, from the barn structure to the Alberta rose canopy that gives the hall its stunning acoustics.

It has been years in the making but the end result was well worth the wait. The Taylor Centre for the Performing Arts – home of the Mount Royal University Conservatory and Bella Concert Hall – is set to take centre stage as it officially launches its Opening Festival in fall 2015. “The Taylor Centre is the best facility of its kind in Canada,” states Paul Dornian, former director for the Mount Royal Conservatory. “It will be energized by the wonderful teachers at the Conservatory, the great programs, and the many future generations of talented students.” Creating a masterpiece Dornian had been with the Royal Conservatory for more than 30 years before leaving in July 2015 to pursue other career goals.

“I’ve been involved in the building of the new Taylor Centre for the Performing Arts for the past 15 years, the last four of which have been in the design and construction process,” he says. “It’s been a truly wonderful experience.” This experience has resulted in an 8,700-square-metre architecturally-stunning facility that has been strategically engineered to deliver the utmost in acoustical sound. The building houses flexible teaching rooms, master-class rooms, ensemble rehearsal spaces, a percussion room, student lounge, early childhood instructional suite, spacious board room, and a multi-level lobby suitable for a variety of uses. At the heart of this sound oasis is the world-class Bella Concert Hall, made possible through the largest private donation – $21 million – in the history of Mount Royal University and named in honour of Mary Belle Taylor, matriarch of the city’s

philanthropic Taylor family. Of his mother, Don Taylor, who built his business roots as president of Engineered Air, says, “She was a strong supporter of education. Having her name associated with the university, I’m sure she’d be very proud.” The Bella Concert Hall is the “jewel” of the new conservatory, with an intimate seating capacity of 773. “We knew this was going to be an amazing project right from the get go,” states Dornian. “And this was confirmed in January 2015 when we held an open house while the building was still very much under construction. We had anticipated that about 300 or 400 people would show up but we ended up with more than 1,500. That gave you the feeling that this was going to be an enormous thing for the community.”

Stephanie Roll, vice-president of Executive Millwork, and her project team got together to hand-select four large cherry-veneer logs to use for all the acoustic panels.

Now that the new Conservatory has been transformed from a rendering to a real, physical building, the accolades continue to pour in. “The renderings did not do it justice,” states Dornian. “It’s a breathtaking design that exceeds expectations. And the public reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. People are completely blown away. They’ve never seen anything like this – it’s a new cultural icon for the city of Calgary.” Well-earned applause Although much of the public applause for the new conservatory is yet to come, there have been many climactic moments during the construction process for the team of architects, engineers, consultants, and trades people who came together to make this dream a reality. “This is probably the most unique building that I will ever get a chance to work on,” states Danuta Darling, project engineer of CANA Construction. “It’s not every day that Calgary builds a new concert hall. Even the experience of working with an international team has proven to be rewarding in itself.” The architect on the project is based in Los Angeles, the acoustician in Chicago, the mechanical/electrical consultant in Toronto, and the rigging and theatrical seating subcontractors in Montreal. The team of workers was still hard at work putting the final pieces in places as late as June 2015 in preparation for the official opening which took place in August 2015, and the first gala performance that was held on September 19, 2015.

“The audio/video system was one of the last components for us to finish,” states Darling. “It couldn’t be installed while there was any construction going on because of the dust and debris.” The theatrical lighting was also installed after construction was complete and required the use of a specialized lift. “We brought in the only lift available in North America – the largest Spydercrane model – in order to fit the space,” explains Darling. “We had to permanently reinforce the stage without changing the acoustics so that we could use the lift on the stage to reach the lights and acoustic wood panels. We also trained the owner group to be able to use the crane for future maintenance.” These wooden components comprise an intricately designed, complex series of acoustical panels of varying sizes that form the balcony fascias, choral loft wall, rose canopy, and ceiling reflectors that are affixed to the top of the Bella Concert Hall. Calgary-based Executive Millwork worked closely with Heavy industries to ensure the design of the choral loft pan-

handling of these panels that weighed hundreds of pounds and protected that finished face from UV exposure to ensure the consistent colour of the panels,” explains Stephanie Roll, vice-president of Executive Millwork. “Even after we thought we had come up with the optimal approach we ended up evolving our process to make it better and a more efficient method of securing the panels. Throughout the whole project we had to think about and collaborate on many details to insure success.” The requirement of superior quality and uniformity of the cherry veneer was a challenge Roll and her team hadn’t faced before. “The entire project team actually got together to hand select four large cherry-veneer logs to use for all the acoustic panels. This careful selection of over 70,000 square feet of the veneer ensured consistency in colour and grain structure across the entire project,” she says. These cherry-veneer panels are attached to a substantial steel sub-frame and filled with lightweight glass-fibre reinforced concrete (GFRC) – the heaviest of which is about 2,000 pounds. They are suspended above the stage and seating, and were installed in smaller, manageable pieces, using a combination of electrical hoists and rigging. “With the different phases to do the install, it took a year to complete,” explains Kevin Mullins, project manager of Heavy Industries. “We have specialized installers who hoisted and fitted the steel sub-frames and panels into position. That included using a bosun chair to suspend installers into the more inaccessible locations.” There wasn’t a single straight or square piece on the project, adds Roll. In fact, the balcony fascias are actually conical shaped.  “This along with the integrated lighting and speakers created unique design and engineering requirements, so this certainly made the project one of a kind, as well as very challenging,” she adds. “The opportunity to overcome the challenges and execute a world-class functional piece of art rarely come along. Being part of the collaborative team that

built the Bella Concert Hall is not only satisfying from a company perspective but our own creative staff are extremely proud of their individual contributions to the project. It’s a piece of work that’s going to be marvelled over for a very long time in this city and we helped create the masterpiece.” Another interesting aspect about some of the wooden panels are the hatches contained within that open to release the speakers as needed. Due to the construction schedule, the hatches needed to be created before the final decision was made on the actual speakers. “We coordinated our 3D models with the speaker and stage rigging manufacturers throughout the job,” states Mullins. “Our installation involved a lot of pre-planning on our part but overall everything went according to plan.” The acoustic wood panels, acoustic banners, hatches and speakers were collectively put to the test on June 24, 2015, when the Talaske Group, the acoustic consultants on the project, conducted the final acoustical listening tests. The tests took place from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. and included a variety of performances that included vocal soloists, pianist soloists, a 65-piece youth orchestra, an amplified jazz band, and the Calgary Philharmonic Chorus. An individual experience One of the members of the Calgary Philharmonic Chorus also happens to work for Mount Royal University as the project manager on the Taylor Centre. Kay Harrison has been singing with the Calgary Philharmonic Chorus from shortly after she arrived in the city in 1981. Needless to say, it has proven to be an emotionally charged experience for her to get to work on the Conservatory and Bella Concert Hall. “I was fortunate enough to be part of the chorus that got to sing on stage during the acoustical testing,” says Harrison, who managed to keep her emotions in check during the performance. “It was a great opportunity to actually be there for the culmination of a project that has been all-consuming for the last few years.”


FEATURE | Taylor Centre for the Performing Arts

Although the dedicated home of the Calgary Philharmonic Chorus is the Jack Singer Concert Hall (with a seating capacity of 1,700), Harrison hopes that there will be many future opportunities to repeat her performance at the Bella Concert Hall. And, in fact, the Calgary Philharmonic Chorus took part in the opening Gala Performance that was held on September 19, 2015. “After 40 years of working ‘in the trenches’, I am ready to retire at this point in my life,” states Harrison, who adds that her contract with Mount Royal University will come to an end in December 2015. “This project has given me the opportunity to – hopefully – finish my career on a high note.” Let the music begin The Taylor Centre for the Performing Arts will prove to be a source of inspiration and enlightenment for both the city of Calgary and its residents. It’s taken a lot of hard work on the part of a very large team to create the worldclass Conservatory and Bella Concert Hall but the benefits will be felt for and by many generations to come. “The new Conservatory is such a lovely space,” states Allison Hillier, a past student of the Conservatory who has gone on to pursue her undergraduate degree in music at the Oberlin College & Conservatory in Ohio. “I am very excited for the students who will be able to get a chance to study there.” In her experiences at the Conservatory, Hillier would practice up to three hours a day. “I think it will be so much more inspiring for students to be able to practice in the new space,” she says. “And when we feel more inspired, it becomes a lot easier for us to reach our full potential as students.” Although Hillier misses out on practising in the new conservatory, she holds strong to the hope of still being able to take advantage of the new facility and Bella Concert Hall. “Whenever I get the opportunity, I will try to be an audience member,” she says. “But my real goal is to be able to one day perform on that stage.” n

Better Bidding

Improving efficiency throughout the supply chain with COOLNet On Demand By Lisa Fattori

As more tools and capabilities are added to COOLNet Alberta, efficiency in the tendering and bidding process, as well as in project management, improves exponentially. A central, comprehensive one-stop shop environment gives owners the opportunity to post tenders and receive bids for both public and private projects, and provides contractors with a breadth of functions for communicating with, and disseminating information, to subs and suppliers. Choosing COOLNet as the go-to platform for a host of online applications not only improves the efficiency and bottom-line at the organizational level, widespread adoption of the service streamlines practices for a more robust and competitive construction industry as a whole. Various versions of COOLNet have been available for the last 18 years, with the plan room serving as the core functionality of the site for most of those years. In early 2014, an on-demand service was integrated with COOLNet Alberta to provide a dedicated portal for invitation-only projects. COOLNet On Demand enables general contractors to manage their invitations to bid and gives trade contractors and suppliers access to both publicly- and privatelytendered projects from one convenient location. “Before COOLNet On Demand, plan rooms were not getting private projects and once a tender closed, that was the last that COOLNet had to do with a project,” says Dave Robertson, CEO of Infinite Source, developer of the bid management and document control software of COOLNet Alberta. “Within the software industry there is a variety of programs that contractors would have to buy to manage their invitationonly projects. This software could cost

a company from $3,000 to $10,000 a year, whereas CCA members have access to On Demand included in their membership. That’s a considerable savings, plus the tools in On Demand are much more sophisticated than many of the products out there.” Rather than distributing full sets of project documents by fax or email, general contractors can post the documents to COOLNet On Demand and simply send an invitation. All of a project’s content can be submitted to one place, thereby eliminating the need for multiple FTP sites and drop boxes, as well as additional internet capacity and IT personnel to maintain the sites. Users are no longer obliged to master 10 to 20 different systems, which saves an enormous amount of time. FTP sites are also limiting, in that documents can only be downloaded, and with the typical setup where everyone uses the same password, there is no tracking, reporting, or accountability. On Demand enables contractors to continue to use the system once

contracts have been awarded. The service provides document management of the construction process throughout the life of a project, including change orders, revision management and document linking, the ability to run a review process, and general project communication. With a click of a button, general contractors can submit their projects to COOLNet and those invited to bid can easily log in, using their COOLNet user name and password to access the documents. In private bidding, general contractors have access to the trades that have visited the site and can see who has viewed and downloaded project documents. This is a great convenience, as generals then know who to call to confirm if a subtrade is bidding, and confirms if trades have seen all addenda. Once a private bid is set up, the trades are selected and an invitation is sent through the On Demand system, additional email notifications for new information and changes, such as addenda, can be quickly sent to the invited trades.

The system tracks and reports on all site access and document views and downloads. “With this system, we know that the documents have been delivered and can tell what the trades failed to review,” says Todd Allen, estimator for Stuart Olson. “We can monitor prior to closing and see which trades did not view certain documents, such as an addendum, and place a call asking about that. We’ve been using On Demand since it was first introduced and find that it’s a very reliable and secure site. I like the trade contact database feature and the fact that we have our own private contact list. This makes trade selection very quick as both the public and private contact lists are searchable, both by name and discipline.” Project owners and procurement professionals also have access to similar services through SCAN 247. The system streamlines the procurement process for goods, services, and construction, enabling owners to efficiently distribute information and documents about

ments and any communications on a project. SCAN 247 is equally effective for largescale open tenders for capital works, as well as for publicly-funded projects tendered by invitation only. For smaller projects that fall within the allowable threshold for private posting, the system caters to procurement professionals with lists of pre-qualified contractors. SAIT Polytechnic, for example, has posted and managed projects through SCAN 247 for two renovation projects and is preparing to use the service for a third time. The projects included the conversion of five regular classrooms into five e-learning classrooms, and renovating a regular classroom into a radio pharmacy lab for students. Through SCAN 247, SAIT’s pre-qualified general contractors were invited to bid on each project. “We have some good sized renovations at SAIT and a pre-qualified list of general contractors saves a lot of time, in that contractors’ evaluations, rates, bonding information, and capabilities area already on file,” says Robert Koch, senior purchasing officer at SAIT Polytechnic. “When we post a public tender, we could get up to 25 bids and a lot of post secondaries don’t have the time and staff to qualify those contractors. We have a website, but we couldn’t post invitation only projects to the site. We were going to get our own drop box, then found out about the CCA’s plan room and were directed to SCAN 247.” Online bid submission is the next step in realizing the full potential of COOLNet Alberta, for both publicly-tendered projects and those posted by invitation only. Although the bid submission technology has been in place for some time, its adoption has been sporadic, with the majority of owners still calling for submissions by fax, email, or in person. The option to submit bids online saves contractors a lot in travel time, missed

While an increasing number of project owners are inviting contractors to bid online, widespread use of the technology has not yet become mainstream. “COOLNet has the ability to receive bids online and we are working to increase awareness among owners about the benefits of the service,” says Robertson. “In B.C., a number of municipalities and public agencies are accepting bids and proposals through SCAN 247. COOLNet provides owners with tabulated bids that are presented in a spreadsheet, so it’s easy to compare bids to determine who to award the contract to. Also, the process eliminates non-compliant submissions, which ensures that there are no missed opportunities for both owners and companies submitting bids.” With the addition of On Demand and SCAN 247, COOLNet Alberta provides the most comprehensive and inclusive online resource for all public and private construction project information and tendering. From improved document management to extensive public trades lists, organizations using these new tools are experiencing greater efficiency, productivity, and business growth. “The initial buy-in to On Demand by the industry has been great,” says Curtis Griffith, new business development manager for COOLNet Alberta. “On Demand, and SCAN 247’s electronic bidding capabilities are positioning COOLNet Alberta as the true tendering and bidding hub for construction projects in the province. COOLNet Alberta is driven by eight local construction associations in Alberta [Calgary, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Grand Prairie, Lethbridge, Lloydminster, Medicine Hat, and Red Deer] designed to give the construction industry the best access to project information, processes, and opportunities.” To learn more information about COOLNet Alberta, On Demand, and SCAN 247 and how these tools can help you, contact Curtis Griffith at 1-780-483-1279, or curtis.griffith@coolnetalberta.com. n

2015 CCA Chair’s Report Stephanie Roll

Stability in our lives and our business is always a good thing. The Calgary Construction Association (CCA) has been the anchor in our industry for 71 years. Since my election as chair in March 2015, we have seen the stock market crash, the price of oil fall to 40-year lows, and have seen Albertans elect a new provincial government for the first time in 43 years. Being a leader in these uncertain times, the CCA continually strives to bring new initiatives and support for our valued members. Membership remains strong and committed at more than 800 members. I have been fortunate and honoured to have personally met many of you, and encourage you all to actively participate and advocate on behalf of your industry association. In 2015, the CCA has continued to offer great value to you, our members, providing education, networking, fundraising, industry support, research, and marketing our industry. With this in mind, it is essential for you to recognize that continued cohesion and strength of our association is through your membership, commitment, and participation. Membership in the CCA also provides you with membership in the Alberta Construction Association and the Canadian Construction Association. Through these three unified organizations we are collectively well represented as an effective “voice of the construction industry”. Your member organizations will be advocating for sustainable and strategic investments to ensure that we continue to upgrade and develop our infrastructure which will be extremely important over the next few years. Along with each and every one of you, our hope is for government to hear the construction industry’s message loud and clear - the importance that Alberta thrives as a competitive environment do business in. Locally, the CCA plays a leadership role in setting the stage and participating in our corporate social responsibility efforts and education. In 2016, SAIT Polytechnic celebrates its 100th anniversary. In recognition of all that SAIT does for our industry, your CCA board has committed to a $50,000 donation for 2016, double that of previous years. We will work with SAIT to find the best use of the funds which will have the biggest impact. This summer, CCA proudly recognized SAIT’s first graduating class of the four-year Construction Project Management bachelor of science degree. Last year, our association awarded scholarships in this program and enhanced our involvement through another $15,000 donation which would be divided and awarded to six high-achieving student graduates receiv-

ing $2,500 each. The industry’s need for this education was confirmed with the majority of the 20 graduates successfully securing employment in their chosen construction career. Over the years, the board has confirmed the importance of education for industry and the CCA continues with many initiatives supporting careers in construction. This year’s 11th annual Education Fund golf tournament was once again sold out. Participants enjoyed a fantastic day of sunshine and camaraderie and, at the end of the day, raised a record $66,610, bringing the total raised for the CCA Education Fund to more than $1,000,000 – $700,000 of which came directly from golf tournament proceeds and sponsorship. These funds and others helped the CCA Education Fund trustees award funding in support of education in construction related fields to: • SAIT technologies - four $1,000 bursaries • SAIT Construction Project Management degree - six $2,500 bursaries • Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training - 25 $1,000 scholarships • CCA’s Youth Employment Program (YEP) - five $500 scholarships • CCA family members - eight $2,000 scholarships The CCA continued to support younger students again in 2015, partnering with the Calgary Board of Education and the Calgary Separate School District Dual-Credit Program with significant donations in the amount of $56,400 that were used for purchasing of tools and PPE for their programs.

This event provided 2,600 enthusiastic high school students and educators a fantastic opportunity to explore many of the 50 construction trade booths.

Calgary continues to lead the country in people who attend continuing education and then are recognized by the Canadian Construction Association with Gold Seal certification. Congratulations to all of the Gold Seal recipients this year. Owners, architects, engineers, and contractors (OAEC) joined forces again this year for a one-day workshop with more than 185 participants sharing concerns and industry challenges. We all recognized that continuous improvement is the key to success and we all agreed with this mantra moving forward. To build on their relationships, several participants of the OAEC joined forces to ascend the Ridges of Country Hills on July 14, 2015. I think that I can definitely speak for Dave Smith and myself in suggesting that continuous im-

provement should be changed to lots of improvement required on the course. A great day was had, regardless of the golf skills. Earlier in the summer also at Country Hills, we held our 22nd fight against cancer fundraising tournament in support of the Stacey Easton Memorial. The construction industry generously raised and donated more than $9,000 in support of cancer research. With a few months left in my term, I would like to express my thanks to the membership and to the staff of the CCA for making my term as your chair an incredible experience. As we approach 2016, I would encourage you, our members, to get involved. I’m confident that you all have expertise to share so hopefully with this brief overview of some of the association activities, your interest has been piqued.

Nearing Take Off

Calgary International Airport (YYC) to welcome new International Terminal in 2016 By Jillian Mitchell

Waiting for a flight can, at times, be tedious. But in Calgary, upon the opening of Calgary International Airport’s new International Facilities Project (IFP) next year, it’ll be just plane fun. More than 50 additional shops and services will bring YYC’s total amenities for travellers up to more than 185 by the facility’s grand opening, scheduled for fall 2016. A 318-room hotel will further complement the 183,500-square-foot facility. More than doubling the size of the terminal building, the new International Terminal is part of YYC’s Airport Development Program (ADP), a $2-billion venture consisting of the expansion of the current terminal building and the construction of a fourth runway. The

$620-million Runway Development Project (RDP), which wrapped up June 2014 after almost three years of construction, created Canada’s longest runway at 14,000 feet long and 200 feet wide. Benefits offered by the ADP, the largest expansion in the airport’s 100-year history, include balanced airfield and terminal capacity, and a superior traveller experience for the airport’s annual 15.26 million passengers. All in a day’s work With general contractor EllisDon at the helm, construction on the $1.4-billion IFP commenced in 2011, with teams working west to east on the project’s eight sections.

The structure, which will boast five levels and 22 additional gates (with a future capacity for 36), was fully enclosed by November 2014. During peak times, crews of 1,800 were onsite daily and by June 2015, the team logged over 8.6 million hours on the project. “We’re nearing construction completion [on the IFP],” says Vince Davoli, vice-president/area manager of EllisDon, who confirms that much of the project’s physical work is complete. “On the outside, we’ve got the jet bridges to do. And we will still have some commissioning work to do, taking us into 2016.” The IFP is a state-of-the-art facility that will ensure travelling through YYC will be a seamless experience for travel-

Meanwhile, behind the scenes, the airport’s new baggage system will transport their bags to their next flight. Greening YYC A number of sustainable features are incorporated into the new terminal building. Sloped floors (1:20 ratio) and movable walkways with variable speed drives will replace elevators and escalators where possible, reducing energy demands. The new concourse, featuring a highly-efficient curtain wall, has also been designed as photovoltaic-ready, whereby solar energy will be converted into direct current electricity. A total of 581 geothermal wells and 660 kilometres of radiant in-floor heating will result in one of the largest geothermal systems in Western Canada. On the water side, an estimated 800,000 litres of rainwater can be harvested for select low-flow plumbing fixtures (i.e. urinals and toilets). “You have to be environmentally conscious,” says Marco Mejia, vice-president Planning and Engineering for The Calgary Airport Authority. “You have to contribute to this new way the world is moving.

Marco Mejia, vice-president Planning and Engineering, The Calgary Airport Authority, states the YYC will be the first in North America to utilize a call-to-gate system where passengers will not immediately be assigned a gate, but will be able to relax in a large retail and restaurant area in the concourse until closer to their departure time.

tem will result in a significant energy reduction compared with a traditional conveyor system. “This is going to be the largest system of this type in North America,” says Mejia regarding the sustainable, motion-sensored system developed in Denmark. “The system activates only when it has bags to move; you don’t need to continually run the system. It’s more energy efficient.” Once the new International Terminal opens, passengers will use another component of the IFP, a nearly 650-metre long Connections Corridor between the airport’s existing terminal and the IFP, allowing for quick travel between the two facilities. The secure corridor will allow passengers to connect from concourse to concourse using three transportation modes: on foot, via movable walkways, and through the Compact Transit System (CTS). Unique to YYC, CTS electric vehicles can transport up to 10 passengers at a time. “Every few minutes, you will have a compact transit vehicle waiting for passengers to board,” adds Mejia. “It’s very efficient.” Eight new moving walkways will

also be added, each approximately 50 metres long. The airport will also be the first in North America to utilize a call-to-gate system. In this model, which is popular in mega-airports like Heathrow, passengers will not immediately be assigned a gate, but will be able to enjoy a large retail and restaurant area in the concourse until closer to their departure time. Passengers will be given ample time to enjoy the amenities until notified of their gate assignment via large electronic boards. In addition to enhancing the passenger experience by consolidating all of the amenities in one convenient location, this system allows the airport to be more operationally efficient when it comes to gate assignments. Looking forward Upon construction completion, The Calgary Airport Authority will step up its prep for the new facility’s grand opening. “As you can imagine, the construction portion is just a piece,” says Mejia, citing six additional project stages pertaining to operations and training. “We will start with the commissioning to verify every piece of mechanical and

electrical equipment is working properly within specifications related to the project. Then we go into integration.” For example, post-construction, the existing terminal will become the domestic terminal, while the new international will handle transborder and international flights. Mejia stresses the importance of the two terminals connecting properly from an IT perspective; just one of the areas to be tested during commissioning. Following this phase is the activation process, which will involve more than 40,000 training hours for the thousands of employees who work at YYC. Confirming efficiencies for passengers such as signage, announcements, and information kiosks is another integral portion of this phase. Operation and readiness is the final phase of preparation which includes ensuring procedures are made ready for how the new facility is going to be maintained and operated. “We have to go through a lot of steps to make sure activation is going to work perfectly,” concludes Mejia. “It’s a huge process, but we’ll make sure everybody understands what is going to happen on opening day.” n

It also ensures that the right person with the most expertise is the one addressing the issue and that any issue, or resolution for that matter, is being discussed among all concerned before and after it has come to the table. “The outcome of the discussions are circulated by the CCA to all their membership so everyone is aware of the resolution,” she states. “The City group also circulates any outcomes to the entire Corporation that will be affected by the discussions or process changes.” Fabrizio Carinelli, immediate past chair of the CCA and a member of the CCA executive liaison committee, also recognizes the value created through this renewed partnership with the City. “We’ve always had a relationship with the City but this committee is relatively new,” he says. “Having this open dialogue has already got a lot of traction with a couple of issues that have been identified by our membership.” Jennifer Enns, manager of engineering and energy services for the City of Calgary, and Fabrizio Carinelli, immediate past chair of the CCA and a member of the CCA executive liaison committee.

Personnel at the City of Calgary won’t hesitate to admit that an honest, open, and ongoing dialogue with the Calgary Construction Association (CCA) can go a long way to helping build more efficient and more cost-effective projects within local environs. And thanks to the recently developed CCA executive liaison committee, this movement is already well underway. Together we build The CCA executive liaison committee is a recently created committee developed to present the pressing needs and concerns of the day – as identified by the

Working with the liaison committee means that issues that will affect multiple projects/processes can be dealt with more efficiently and effectively through the committee rather than via multiple project managers working separately throughout the City Corporation.” Enns goes on to say that work with the

and the wording well understood by both parties, the City will be able to procure their projects in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.” This issue is deemed by the City to be so important that it has also reached out to the Alberta Road Builders and Heavy Construction Association to seek members that would be interested in being a part of the industry stakeholder working group. “This working group will be reviewing and providing feedback to the City on the various proposed construction procurement documents as they are being developed,” adds Enns. A better future Although the CCA executive liaison committee and the City have made significant progress on the two issues already identified, their continued partnership has the potential to accomplish a great deal more. “While the two current issues discussed are the main ones, there are many others that we have been working together on and that are currently on the table,” says Enns, who cites the sharing of information between the groups (online bidding/Merx), online bonding and vendor performance as just a couple examples. “The long-term goal of this partnership is ‘continual improvement’. As issues are raised, they can be addressed in a timely and appropriate manner for both parties.” Continual improvement may at first appear to be an ambitious objective but given the level of seriousness and desire that both parties are bringing to the table, it doesn’t seem to be a stretch. In fact, the accomplishments to date bode well for a fruitful and productive future. “The City wants to continue working in partnership with CCA’s executive liaison committee to find ways of working better together so that we build faster and smarter to ensure we’re getting the best value for Calgarians’ money,” concludes Enns. n

Leaders in the Field

The new chapter for University of Calgary’s Schulich School of Engineering includes expansion and renovation projects set to raise the bar in engineering excellence By Melanie Franner

The expanded and renovated Canadian Natural Resources Engineering Complex will house the Schulich School of Engineering, which currently accommodates 4,500 students and faculty members.

Next year will mark a significant milestone in the history of the University of Calgary - its 50th anniversary. This event will also coincide with another significant occasion. One that is anticipated to be a turning point in the education and research of future engineers. “The city of Calgary needs – and deserves – the type of impact that our researchers and graduates will be able to achieve through the Canadian Natural Resources Engineering Complex,” states Bill Rosehart, dean of the Schulich School of Engineering, University of Calgary. “The expanded and renovated complex will help set up the future leaders of this city and beyond.” A new beginning The Schulich School of Engineering (Schulich School) is based out of the Engineering Complex, a building that started as a single “block” in the 1960s with

62

an additional five “blocks” being added over a 20-year period. The complex was then connected at multiple levels to two new buildings: Information and Communications Technology building, or ICT in 2001, and Calgary Centre for Innovative Technologies, or CCIT, in 2002. The complex became a labyrinth that hampered rather than enhanced and supported teaching and research in engineering. The Schulich School currently accommodates 4,500 students and faculty. It provides a complete range of engineering teaching and research facilities, from geomatics, civil, mechanical and electrical, bioengineering and petrochemical engineering. And, despite having become recognized as one of the top engineering schools in Canada, the University of Calgary has determined the Schulich School has the potential to become even more.

“We undertook a benchmarking study in 2008 to compare our current space to acceptable standards across the country,” continues Rosehart. “The study looked at everything, including future projections, faculty, staff, graduates, and undergraduates. It identified a shortage of space needed to meet the standards required for the type of education and research we felt was needed to bring us to the next level. To achieve this, we require state-of-the-art learning spaces that can deliver an experiential, hands-on learning experience.” The resulting $158.3-million expansion and renovation project is one of the largest endeavours in the history of the university. It is also one that will support the institution’s “Eyes High” strategic quest to become one of the top five research universities in Canada. “This is a powerful project to have undertaken and one critical to the fu-

ture of our ‘Eyes High’ initiative,” states Rosehart. “We’re going to effectively transform the original complex and add an expansion. I view it as a physical transformation that aligns perfectly with our ‘Eyes High’ vision to transform our teaching capabilities around the student experience.” This transformation is being made possible, in large part, through $142.5 million in funding from the Alberta government. Other funds were raised through individual and corporate donations, such as the $7 million received from Canadian Natural Resources Limited. “It’s always a challenge to raise money,” states Rosehart. “But what we have in this school is a strong community that believes in us and in our vision to support our students’ success. We’ve got a lot to be proud of in our school.” On average, the Schulich School sees more than 500 students graduate each year. According to the University’s Alumni Relations Department, some 72 per cent of all University of Calgary graduates remain in Calgary and 78 per

cent remain within the province of Alberta. More than 10,000 Schulich School alumni currently live and work in Calgary. By the numbers The Schulich School expansion and renovation project is taking place over several phases. The project includes the renovation of approximately 11,000 square metres and the addition of 18,300 square metres. “The architectural team was selected through a competitive RFP process in 2009,” states Anne Underwood of Campus Architecture at the University of Calgary. Diamond and Schmitt Architects (Toronto), and Gibbs Gage Architects (Calgary) led a full consultant team, with the latter being the Architect of Record. “The project includes master planning Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3. We’re still seeking funding for Phase 3 of the project,” she explains.

66

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

Phase 1 (2009 to 2010) included critical building code upgrades identified in the master plan as required for a major expansion, including reconfiguration of washroom facilities to rebalance the ratio of men’s to women’s, building information systems, energy efficient lighting, bringing exit stairs into compliance with existing codes, etc. “This phase was really about basic renovations to the building,” says Underwood. “We did some full-scale gutting but it involved primarily public areas like corridors and stairwells. It was a lot of behind-the-scenes work.” Phase 2, which includes design, comprises the expansion piece of the initiative. It started in 2011 and will wrap up in fall 2017. “The architects were tasked with the goal of expanding and modernizing the school,” explains Underwood. “They also had to create a building that students, faculty, and staff could intuitively understand their way around.”

The new complex will be “grounded” via a central atrium space that encourages social and academic interaction. Surrounding this hub will be new and renovated administrative, teaching, and research spaces. Many of the building’s design features – such as exposed structural elements – will perform double duty as learning tools for students. Five new lecture spaces are part of the design, ranging in size from a 30-seat seminar room, a 99-seat classroom to two 240-seat lecture theatres. Built-in flexibility through retractable fixed seating will make one of the 240-seat theatres multi-purpose, enabling it to be used as a lecture theatre, an exam hall and exhibition space or a special event space depending on the requirements. Another important aspect of the design is the development of new lab spaces for hands-on learning experiences for undergraduates and graduates. State-of-the-art technology will be installed, while student-oriented spaces

According to Underwood, the expansion footprint will be completed in time for the grand opening scheduled to take place in September 2016. “We anticipate that Phase 3 will begin in late 2017 or early 2018 after existing labs and teaching spaces have been relocated from old space into the new ones constructed during Phase 2,” states Underwood. “We don’t yet have the funding The expansion and renovation project will offer students state-of-the-art learning and research facilities and in place for this phase but we estimate it further boost the Schulich School of Engineering’s reputation, nationally and internationally. will take about 18 months to complete.” During this extensive renovation and expansion project, the Schulich School has remained open. One major lecture theatre has had to be closed for two years with others closed for shorter periods of time. But, typically, it has been business as usual. “We have had to relocate some units and groups when safety has dictated or when invasive work has needed to be completed,” says Underwood. “For example, we moved researchers and teaching spaces out while seismic walls were constructed inside existing spaces, and then moved them back. We’ve shut off power to the entire complex several times. Working in the occupied buildings has slowed things down a bit. We need to work around teaching schedules and research schedules to some extent. For example, all noisy demolition work was done in the evenings, nights, and weekends. We hold off any noise work during exams. Fortunately everyone has been very understanding of the needs and challenges of this incredibly complex project.” The temporary discomfort is expected to be far over-shadowed by the capabilities of the new complex itself. “This expansion and renovation project will offer students state-of-the-art learning and research facilities and further boost the engineering program reputation nationally and internationally,” MEMBER states Janaka Ruwanpura, vice-provost (International) of the University of CalPile Load Load Testing Build Solutions • Driven Piling Piling • Expanded Base Piling Pile Testing• Design • Design Build Solutions • Driven • Expanded Base Piling gary. “We plan to increase the campus Drilled Cast-In-Place Piling • Continuous Flight Auger Piling • Tiebacks • Cut-off Drilled Cast-In-Place Piling • Continuous Flight Auger Piling • Tiebacks • Cut-off diversity, bringing top students from Walls • Earth Retention and Shoring • Diaphragm Walls • Cutter Soil Mixing Walls • Earth Retention and Shoring • Diaphragm Walls • Cutter Soil Mixing around the world.

“Schulich School of Engineering is a leading faculty involved in all aspects of our international strategy and the new expansion will boost the opportunities to strengthen the current partnerships and build new strategic partnerships with universities and industry around the world,” states Ruwanpura. “It will greatly complement our efforts to position the university as a global intellectual hub where students, staff and faculty promote new discoveries, ideas and applications that will have global impact, in partnership with universities around the world.” Calling all engineers According to Engineers Canada, a national organization of 12 engineering regulators that license the country’s 280,000 members of the profession, the Canadian demand for engineers is expected to continue to rise. In its Engineering Labour Market in Canada: Projections to 2025 report, Engineers Canada forecasts that there will be more than 100,000 engineering job openings in Canada between now and 2025. Rosehart is determined to help fill that gap by expanding the Schulich School’s capabilities to accommodate more students and to ensure that students and faculty alike have the type and breadth of learning and research experience needed to make them the future leaders of society. “The challenges facing our society run the spectrum,” he says. “They can vary from having a direct impact on the length and quality of human life to the transportation networks of the cities in which we live. Engineering, in some ways, is the hidden profession. Engineering touches us all every day – in the water we use to the planes we fly. It all comes back to engineering. And the fundamental mandate of engineering is to the serve the community.” For Rosehart, his community is the Schulich School. And his mandate is to provide a higher level of learning to each and every one of the engineering students on campus ensuring they have the knowledge and skills needed to become leaders in their field. n

REPORT | CCA President’s Message

THE CHALLENGE OF CHANGE By Dave Smith, president of the Calgary Construction Association

A year has passed since the last time I sat down to write a few words for the Calgary Construction Association’s annual magazine, The Constructor. Twelve months ago, the CCA connected with new Premier Jim Prentice, who believed in responsible resource development, understood that government has a role to play in generating prosperity, and showed signs that the government had to be disciplined in their expenditures. It wasn’t long after Prentice had become the premier when he called an election to allow the citizens of Alberta to approve the direction he was taking the province. On May 5, 2015, Prentice’s right-wing PC party lost after nearly 44 years of being in power. It is safe to say the construction community in Calgary was in shock. While the ruling party in Alberta has changed significantly, the province has not. With two-thirds of Al-

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

bertans voting for other than the NDP, most Albertans remain non-ideological. Prentice could have used a campaign manager like Rod Love, who served as chief of staff to Ralph Klein during Klein’s tenure as Mayor of Calgary and Premier of Alberta, and understood the average Albertan when it came to election time. Prentice’s position to “pay more and receive less” was the knock-out punch for his party. Also, it did not help there was an early-election call knowing the province had five premiers in less than 10 years. And it certainly did not help the PCs when the Wildrose party drove former Alberta Premier Alison Redford to resign. This left the door open to Alberta politics as young Albertans were ready for a change, and Rachel Notley, an intelligent, articulate, and affable woman walked right in the front door of our legislature. Notley has a tough four

years ahead of her as she has already taken action to raise the minimum wage in Alberta from $10.20 an hour to $15 by 2018, along with spending on several social programs, including public sector unions, reducing classroom sizes, and raising the provincial corporate taxes from 10 per cent to 12 per cent. And most recently, former City of Calgary Council member Joe Ceci, now the NDP finance minister, has floated the prospect of more in the way of higher taxes. Doing all this while Notley and her team face a possible $6-billion deficit for 2015 will not bode well for the future. And if Notley is as intelligent as everyone believes, she will certainly work with the energy sector and not against it. This will be make or break for her party if she wants to win the next election. The current NDP government has some huge mountains to climb as the

amid more cuts. Stemming from an oversupply of oil, prices have dropped from US$100 per barrel a year ago to the current West Texas Intermediate price of $45, the lowest prices in six years. This has led to more than 35,000 pink slips issued in the oil and gas sector. While it sounds like doom and gloom, this is not the first time Albertans have experienced a downturn in the economy. For those of you who have been around when the likes of superstars Bobby Orr and Bobby Hull played that Canadian game of ice hockey, we Canadians have weathered many storms. From Pierre Elliott Trudeau’s National Energy Program in 1981, the downturn in the early 1990s when the construction community experienced 23 bidders vying for a $1-million RCMP Detachment Centre, the burst of the “dot-com bubble” at the turn of the century, to the most recent bankruptcy of the Lehman Brothers in 2008, we have weathered it all. While CCA’s affiliated association, the Alberta Construction Association, is addressing issues with Notley and her team,

here in Calgary the CCA has a good story to tell. Since the City of Calgary retained the services of Jeff Fielding as the new city manager, the construction industry has made tremendous progress on numerous issues ranging from streamlining the pre-qualification process, working on a new building maintenance bylaw, establishing practices in building a sustainable city, enhancing the Advanced Weather Forecasting System, to reviewing contract documents and the various delivery methods the City uses in their procurement process. The relationship of the CCA with the City of Calgary has never been better. Kudos to our City partners Brad Stevens, Kevin Griffiths, Marco Civitarese, Cliff De Jong, Jennifer Enns, Mary Lifton, and Sarah Aspinal, to name but a few. I am confident that over time, the construction community will see the City of Calgary become a preferred platinum client in their tendering practices. In the lead up to the 2015 election, the Canadian Construction Association met with the leaders of all four parties; all

finger-pointing has already commenced relative to the PC’s promise, when in power, to build 197 schools. Former PC Infrastructure Minister Ric McIver gave the green light for the construction of the schools following meetings with the members of the Calgary and Edmonton construction associations confirming that it could be done. At this point in time, the NDP have stated that 101 schools will not be completed on their original schedule. Remember, the PCs made this commitment when the oil and gas industry was in overdrive and there was stress on skilled labour. With falling prices in the energy sector, contractors are indicating today they are working at 60 to 80 per cent capacity due to the economic slowdown. However, all political parties are getting in on the action relative to the construction schedule of the schools. Liberal leader David Swann is also weighing in and said the NDP must now prioritize the schools to make up for “PC mismanagement”. With a change of government in Alberta, a mild recession feels ominous

By the time this publication goes to press the construction industry from coast to coast may very well experience more change “on the hill” in Ottawa. In 2015, Statistics Canada stated there are now more Canadians that are 65 years and older than those 15 years and younger. With that statistic in mind, the CCA is offering more educational programs than ever before to address the gap left from retiring experienced personnel. In order to address the future workforce requirements, the CCA will be developing a young builders’ leadership group over the coming year. This new energetic workforce will benefit from the current construction industry leaders who have the vision and talent to ensure a skilled and qualified workforce continues to build this great city we live in. The CCA’s new young construction leadership pro-

gram will help build capacity and retain the best and the brightest. Of the 60 plus local construction associations in the country, the CCA members for the past three years continue to lead in Gold Seal certifications. This will ensure excellence in the administration, coordination, and management of construction projects. The CCA encourages all CCA-member firms to make the commitment to have their project managers, superintendents, estimators, and safety coordinators certified. “Experience Excellence” with Gold Seal and set a highest standard for your team.

Looking to the future, the OAEC will address the latest delivery method of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) and Lean Construction. The CCA will form a chapter of the Canadian Construction Association’s Lean Construction Institute – Canada. Also ahead for the CCA comes new partnerships with the Calgary Chamber of Commerce and the Calgary Economic Development Authority. We will team up in promoting infrastructure such as a new cancer care centre and the most talked about $980-million CalgaryNEXT project. Over the past decade, the CCA has been the catalyst to connect and build partnerships which is so important in today’s business environment. Who would have ever thought that Ford would collaborate with its Detroit archrival, GM, on high-efficiency gear boxes? Even more so, who would have ever believed that mobile phone makers would collaborate. Apple’s main supplier of microchips for its iPhones is none other than Samsung, its main rival in the smartphone business. COOLNet has partnered with its competition CMD, who have now been purchased by iSqFt of the U.S. We must change, adapt, and partner if we wish to succeed. Over the years, Calgary has changed significantly as the city nears 1.3 million people and so has the CCA. Throughout my 31 years at the helm of the association, I have had the honour to work closely with business leaders in the construction industry from coast to coast and have assisted them to connect, collaborate, and communicate, and to be innovative in their business practices. In turn, the directors of the CCA have helped shape and fuel Calgary’s growth. I look forward to the CHALLENGE OF CHANGE as we enter this new economic era in Calgary. n

Breaking the ICE

Software from DIRTT Environmental Solutions is a smash hit By Jillian Mitchell Photo by ArtLine Photography.

Julie Pithers, business/community development for DIRTT Environmental Solutions Ltd., a company which creates customizable and sustainable prefab interiors, such as modular walls and cabinetry, for clients in the health-care, educational, governmental, retail, and commercial sectors.

It’s been touted a video game for design, but with brains for business—and it’s bringing construction into the 21st century. ICE® software, the innovative technology from DIRTT (Doing It Right This Time) Environmental Solutions, affords for the first time ever, custom-designed spaces created with the speed, price, and quality of manufacturing. Used to sell, visualize, specify, price, manufacture, and deliver products to market, the intelligent Java-based, 3D application provides graphical and interactive exploration of design in real time, creating interactive environments whereby users can customize any product open to modification. “It’s called ICE® because it melts into other software,” says Julie Pithers, Business/Community Development, DIRTT Environmental Solutions Ltd. “The intent of our software is that it works with everyone else’s software.” The software functions much like the Building Information Modelling (BIM) system, explains Pithers, but with one additional perk. “ICE® actually builds the components as well—what you see is what you get,” she says, citing the program’s ability to communicate directly with DIRTT’s manufacturing equipment. The reduction of design misinterpretation, human error, lead-times, and unnecessary product waste have all been cited as software perks. Pithers quips, “In construction there’s an old joke: ‘price, schedule or quality—you can only choose two.’ We decided we wanted to let everybody have all three with the certainty of a manufactured solution. This is an important niche to fill.”

Careful consideration went into the development of the ICE® software (and James Gosling, the creator of Java, the world’s number-one programming language, acted as a consultant). Intentionally created to be user-friendly, the video game-based software drives collaboration by providing realtime information for stakeholders to make decisions. DIRTT representatives are also readily available to work directly with clients. DIRTT provides all of their distribution partners with the software, free of charge, while the program’s full advantages are unlocked with purchase. Users are able to add multiple manufacturers catalogs to their design, offering complete 3D models of a clients’ space and a growing list of manufacturers, is also readily available. “Any manufacturer that’s making something that the enduser can customize, whether it’s size or colour or performance, could use this software,” adds Pithers. “ICE® has about 50 manufacturers on it that range from curtain walls down to data centres.” Among DIRTT’s high-profile clients are Pembina, Suncor, Enbridge, KidSIM (Alberta Children’s Hospital simulation unit), and MNP. “MNP is one of the most exciting projects,” explains Pithers. The company used the ICE® software to revamp its many offices nation wide, with the goal of creating supportive spaces. Ample meeting rooms and regional flair were fundamental design considerations for MNP and design firm, Toker & Associates. “[MNP] did a comparison between construction

and prefab and used ICE® software to help regional managers understand what the spaces would look like.” A software complement, ICEberg® is a modular versus traditional construction cost-comparison tool. ICEberg® uses the data inside ICE® to compare an apples-to-apples monetary cost and environmental cost between a DIRTT-built interior with a conventional build-out. The program contains third-party information for over 1,200 jurisdictions in North America. “It is really a very robust XLS,” she adds. Pithers offers the following example to highlight ICEberg’s efficacy. “Here in Calgary, doing a direct cost comparison on a 17,000-square-foot office space, we come in at 13 per cent less, holistically,” she says, attributing the savings to onsite efficiencies. “While all DIRTT products are being built in the factory, onsite it’s a big open space where now the carpet person can lay out carpet without having to cut around studs - a lot less material waste and a lot less labour.” Headquartered in Calgary, DIRTT Environmental Solutions is the creator of customizable and sustainable prefab interiors, such as modular walls and cabinetry, for clients in the healthcare, educational, governmental, retail, and commercial sectors. The company committed to sustainability branched into software in 2004, officially launching ICE® in 2005; the venture promptly translated into a DIRTT subsidiary, Ice Edge Business Solutions Inc. Having grown to $187 million in sales, DIRTT has manufacturing facilities in Calgary; Savannah, Georgia; and Phoenix, Arizona. DIRTT’s popular plug-and-play solutions include DIRTT Walls, DIRTT Millwork, DIRTT Power and DIRTT Networks. DIRTT Power is manufactured in Kelowna, B.C.; while DIRTT Green Learning Centers are located in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. DIRTT is also the winner of more than 25 prestigious awards, including a Manning Award for Outstanding Innovation. Looking to the future, Pithers confirms it’s more of the same for DIRTT - doing it right. “We’re about to really radically improve the visualization [on ICE®] so it’s really realistic,” she says. “You can look at your project at different times of the year and different times of day.” In future, Pithers hopes DIRTT will also present a solution to the industry’s skills-gap query. “Our future has to do a lot more work in helping the construction industry see us as a super subtrade,” she concludes. “One of the biggest issues the construction industry faces is a labour shortage - for every four experienced subtrades retiring in the next five years, there’s only one apprentice - so by using something that is prefab and that works directly with the general contractor as a subtrade, means even the subtrades themselves don’t have to worry about getting good labour. And they can get on and off a jobsite really quickly and have the certainty of knowing exactly to the penny what all the materials are going to cost.” The message is clear - with ICE®, DIRTT has once again done it right. n

Created in 2014, the CCA’s Construction Career Development Committee combines the association’s Youth Employment Program (YEP) and Try-ATrade initiatives under one leadership committee. As both initiatives focus on youth employment and raising the profile of the trades, they are complementary, with shared objectives and resources. Under the umbrella of the Construction Career Development Committee, YEP, Try-A-Trade, and new education initiatives and awareness campaigns can reach a wider audience in raising awareness about career opportunities in the trades. “It made more sense to combine the two committees and share resources rather than have the two groups operate independent from one another,” says Terry Bateman, chair of the Construction Career Development Committee. “We take processes and opportunities used in the YEP and Try-A-Trade programs to eliminate the doubling-up of efforts and increase our success rate. It’s much more efficient to bring these different initiatives together under a single committee.” YEP – A win-win for employers and career seekers For the last 17 years, YEP has been a reliable source for employers looking for pre-screened individuals seeking a career in the trades. The program enables youth to explore trades of interest by matching candidates with a suitable employer for a three-week paid work experience. An in-depth application and interview process by YEP staff ensures employers have access to the best people – employees who show an interest and aptitude for their preferred trades and who complete the Construction Safety Training System prior to working.

Ideally, at the end of the three-week placement, employees are hired full-time, where they can progress from entry-level positions to various roles within their companies. “In the last two years, we have hired five employees from YEP,” says John Volponi, vice-president of West Air Sheet Metal Ltd. “We see a good engagement by young people who are eager to learn and they’re coming in green, before they’ve developed any bad habits. People start at entry level so they don’t have overwhelming responsibility. They can go into clerical work, estimating and project support, or they can become apprentices.” Desirae Johnson learned about YEP through a friend and was hired by Victory Painting in December 2014. “I had done a lot of residential painting before and wanted to get back into it,” says Johnson, who has also worked in landscaping, car sales, residential cleaning, and warehouse management. “In the next couple of years, I’m looking to study interior design at the University of Calgary. With this job, I’m learning something new every day. I know all of my products now and can budget the cost of paint and the labour involved, which will really help when I’m an interior designer.” Victory Painting is a big supporter of YEP and through the service has hired three people in the last five years. As is the case with Desirae Johnson, the program is a launch point for workers, who can then expand their skills in the trades. “We appreciate and endorse YEP because it attracts and facilitates people into the trades,” says Trevor Andres, founder of Victory Painting. “The CCA takes the placement of people seriously. They aren’t just taking people off of the street, which makes the industry more professional. We do very unique projects, so we need a high calibre of people in order to participate in those projects. When you hire young people, you

are increasing the labour pool to draw from. If you don’t have a broad labour pool, it devalues painting and the construction industry in general.” In 2014, more than 20 companies utilized YEP for a total of 54 hires. CCA’s YEP coordinator has a goal of a minimum of 50 placements per year but is looking to increase that number by raising more awareness about the program among CCA members and the construction industry at large. “Everyone at CCA is aware of YEP, and we’re getting good support from members,” says Bateman. “We’d like to see more diversity, with participation by smaller organizations, as well. We’re working to get literature, flyers, and brochures to suppliers so that contractors visiting those businesses will learn more about the program and how it can benefit them.” Narrowing the gap A new initiative by the Construction Career Development Committee is a Dual Credit Pre-Employment Carpentry Program, which was piloted in the winter 2015 semester for local high school students. The program offers 16 students the opportunity to receive 240 hours of hands-on skill development and 135 hours of classroom instruction at SAIT Polytechnic’s new Trades & Technology Complex.

Pre-Employment Carpentry Program qualifies students to challenge the Alberta apprenticeship exam for the first-year carpenter apprenticeship. In addition to a high school diploma, students earn a SAIT Certificate of Completion in Pre-Employment Carpentry and are work-ready upon graduation. “The average age of a first year apprentice in Alberta is 27,” says Ryan Emond, learning specialist, Career and Technology Studies, Calgary Board of Education. “The Dual Credit PreEmployment Carpentry Program at SAIT enables students to get a head start in a career in the trades. At the end of the three semesters, they will have completed their first year of technical training, which they can put on a resume. When they show this to potential employers, they are far more likely to land jobs.” Three mornings a week, the students attend SAIT, with the first semester dedicated to introducing the students to hand tools and power tools, until they know how to operate all equipment in the shop. In the second semester, students will be installing baseboards and framing a small model home. At the end of the program, in the third semester, they frame a 550-square-foot home. The program also includes safety training and preparing students to challenge the first year carpentry apprenticeship exam. “The students are fantastic, and those now into their second semester have improved so much,” says Ryan Mann, carpentry instructor at SAIT. “These kids are college students now.

programs that have been offered by the Calgary Catholic School District. In selecting students for the carpentry program, career practitioners advertise the opportunity to high school students in all schools. Interested candidates fill out an application and explain why they want to be part of the program. Students are then invited to a high school information session, where they learn further details about the program. “We also hold a student and parent information night at SAIT, which is really important to inform students and their parents about the program,” says John Perrella, Calgary Catholic School District CTS, off-campus education consultant. “Our programs run after school, so we talk about the timetable and transportation needs to and from SAIT. We also have our Calgary Catholic off-campus teacher, off-campus consultant, and SAIT representatives on hand to answer any questions. Students and parents can tour the facility and see the construction lab where the students will receive their instruction and training.” New release The Construction Career Development Committee’s most recent project is a Careers in Construction video, which was completed and posted online in July 2015. In less than four minutes, the video appeals to the career aspirations of youth, including the opportunity to earn a good income, pride of work, and the broad range of careers in the trades, including the prospect of running your own business. Responses from an under-25 focus group helped shape the content of the video to ensure that it resonates with the target audience. “We’re very excited about this project and will have it available on a microsite, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube,” says Bateman. “We have a wonderful relationship with the school districts here in Calgary and would like to see the video shown in schools. The video is very effective in promoting the trades, and it shows young people that the trades provide a quality career route.” n

Brookfield Place Calgary is well on its way to becoming the city’s landmark commercial development. The Phase 1 East Tower, destined to be the tallest building in Western Canada, will rise 243 metres

(800 feet) above the Alberta prairie soil. Designed to achieve LEED Gold Core and Shell Development certification, the 58-storey skyscraper incorporates stateof-the-art optimization of energy, light,

and water, including the most extensive use of local and recycled building materials possible. Covering an entire city block in the heart of downtown Calgary, at a projected cost of more than $1 billion, the final project includes two towers offering 2.4 million square feet of office space, joined by a 60-foot-high glass and steel pavilion and a half-acre outdoor plaza. The developers, Brookfield Property Partners, have leased out one million square feet of the East Tower to leading Canadian oil and gas company, Cenovus Energy. Brookfield’s Winston Jensen, vice-president of Construction Western Canada explains, “With the preleasing in place, we are proceeding with Phase 1 and will finish the job as scheduled. Depending upon leasing activity, we will go ahead with Phase 2 at a future date.” Phase 2 comprises the 42-storey West Tower with another one million square feet of commercial space. In October 2013, excavation and shoring began for the seven-levels-belowgrade structure for the East Tower and included the second largest raft slab poured in Calgary. Construction manager, EllisDon Construction Services Inc., had to work around (and sometimes through) a 100 years’ worth of infrastructure and development. One year later, crews were on the ground floor with the six underground levels for the 550-vehicle parkade and the mezzanine level in place. Once out of the ground, the construction pattern began that has been the success of the project. “All the work travels up the building like one machine, one unit, so that every week a different floor gets turned over to a different trade,” explains Joe Bechberger, construction manager with EllisDon. First comes the concrete core, with EllisDon crews doing the formwork instal-

lation and the pumping and finishing of the concrete. By the time the project is completed, they will have handled more than 60,000 cubic metres of concrete. “We had a good winter this year and that helped us to stay on schedule,” says Bechberger. Lafarge Canada Inc. is supplying all that liquid stone, engineering the blend to achieve optimum strength and flow ability - a crucial factor as the concrete is pumped higher and higher, eventually more than 800 feet to the top storey. “We have a five-inch pipe that goes up the whole length of the building,” explains Bechberger. “To get it up there, trucks at street level pour the concrete into the largest concrete pump available from Putzmeister, Germany.” By July 2015, the concrete core of the tower was at level 20 with another 38 to go. “The concrete will be finished by June or July of 2016,” says Scott Thompson, project director with EllisDon. “Everything is working well on the one-week cycle. We’re within two days of the schedule we set two years ago and we’re 90 per cent tendered out and under-budget.” Coming right up behind the EllisDon concrete crews, Walters Steel will be placing a total of 10,000 tonnes of structural steel to create the tower skeleton. Meanwhile, subcontractors are already work-

Simplex Grinnell, with its branch in Calgary, has won the bid for the fire safety and sprinkler systems. From construction to final occupancy, safety is a vital aspect of every project. The safety department of EllisDon works closely with everyone on the job to ensure a safe workplace, a complicated undertaking when dealing with hundreds of workers on a congested downtown site. As Bechberger points out, “There is extra safety management for a high rise with the danger of things coming off the building. We have a wind-monitoring system so that if there are any big winds coming, we can know in advance and make sure everything is securely tied down.” The monitoring system, known as the Advanced Weather Forecasting System (AWFS), is an app created by the Calgary construction industry in partnership

with the City of Calgary, and is mandatory on the construction of new buildings five storeys or higher. As the project moves forward, one week at a time, by summer 2016 the steel will be finished. Work on the curtain wall began in July 2015, starting at level four. Smooth and seemingly frameless, it wraps the tower in glass with curved corners tapering towards the sky. Playing an important part in LEED Gold certification, the extensive glazing will maximize natural light into

the building, as well as reduce overall energy use. Several companies competed for the contract to produce that unique conical glass. Thompson explains, “We were originally looking to get the glass from Mexico, Spain or China, but it is Spain that was finally able to supply us with what we needed.” A special testing facility in Miami will ensure the viability of the curved glass before it is shipped to Calgary where Old Castle Building Envelope will put it all together.

From level four down, the exterior glass walls will be of a different design. The 63-foot-high Winter Garden Pavilion, a 50,000-square-foot community and arts facility space will be showcased by exterior walls consisting of 13-inch by three-inch mullion sections of steel and glass, giving the effect of a soft, rounded jewel box. Seele Inc. out of Germany is contracted to accomplish this intricate glazing. Featured within will be a lobby, retail space and access to the plus-15 pedestrian systems. Tree-lined walkways and open-space landscaping will complete the outdoor plaza on the south side of the building. At the opposite end of the tower, more than 800 feet in the air, sits the three-storey glass crown that will house the mechanical/electrical penthouses at levels 57 and 58 with the emergency generator room on level 59. Thompson estimates it will take six to eight months just to finish this part of the project. Several architectural firms are behind this challenging and spectacular design. Arney Fender Katsalidis (formerly FKA Architecture) out of London, U.K. has partnered with Calgary’s DIALOG Design, working hand-in-hand with the EllisDon team. Bechberger has nothing but praise for the design team. “The architects are working hard and the owners have been really good. If we need to suggest a different construction methodology or a different product or material, they’ve been receptive to change in order to make everything work for the best,” he states. It can be difficult to take an artistic vision of how things should look and translate it into practical and real terms. That’s where the expertise of Calgary’s construction industry shines. “Like anything, it’s been a challenge,” says Bechberger. ”But we have a good team in the field. The supers here have a lot of experience; they’ve done this before and can make our jobs a lot easier - they’re usually way ahead of us.” By the middle of 2016, tenants will be preparing their spaces for final occupancy in the fall of 2017, and Calgary’s downtown will be that much more vibrant and cosmopolitan, its skyline forever transformed by the shining glass crown of Brookfield Place Calgary. n

A Space to Call Their Own

Calgarians eagerly await the New Central Library

By Melanie Franner The goal of the New Central Library’s design was to create an iconic building for the city of Calgary, as well as fulfill the needs of the Calgary Public Library.

It may not open until 2018, but the New Central Library has been the subject of conversation and much anticipation for several years now. Planning for the $245-million project began in 2004. It took a few years after that to secure the funding and locate a potential site. A two-year public engagement process soon followed, where Calgarians were invited to participate in an active conversation about what the role of the new structure should be. Feedback from 16,000 people helped set the stage for what will eventually become a stunning addition to the city’s growing architectural landscape – and a collective community space inviting to all. Community first At the very heart of the New Central Library is a commitment to community – a place that will serve young and old

98

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

in more ways than just housing stacks of books. And it is this very sense of community that acts as the embodiment of the design itself. “The end goal was to create an iconic building for the city of Calgary,” states Rob Adamson, partner with DIALOG, the prime consultant and architect on record for the project. “The building was designed to stand on its own as a civic landmark for the city.” In addition to representing the city of Calgary from an architectural point of view, the building also had to fulfill the needs of the Calgary Public Library –the building’s only tenant. “Before we came onboard, the Calgary Public Library and City of Calgary held a series of public input meetings to better understand the interests of the public,” continues Adamson. “This input formed part of what we had to deliver. The result

was that the building really needed to be a gateway between the East Village and the central downtown core of the city.” The fact the physical site itself is located on an existing LRT track that bisects the land in two served to be the inspiration behind the building’s design – essentially mirroring the role of the structure as a gateway between two distinct areas of the city. The site necessitated that the architects build up and over the LRT tracks – the first time in Calgary’s history an active LRT line has been encapsulated to allow for above-grade development. The other twist in the project was that the LRT had to remain operational during the encapsulation process, which has just recently been completed. The benefit from the raised foundation is clear visibility throughout the interior of the New Central Library.

“We coined the term ‘probatunity’ as a way to describe the curving, graceful geometry of the building, which was determined largely by the LRT track located beneath it,” states Adamson, who further explains that “probatunity is a combination of the words “problem” and “opportunity” and was considered to be an apt description of the site itself. “We also wanted to give the building a regional feel so we created a distinctive Chinook Arch to serve as the curving form of the underbelly of the building.” A geometric-inspired curtain wall forms the exterior of the building and includes abstract shapes of alternating solid and glazed panels. Upon closer inspection, the panels unveil the shapes of houses and pitched roofs, a “shout out” to the history of the city and its rich past. “Passersby can actually see inside the building and will hopefully be drawn inside,” says Adamson. “It’s a very transparent and open building.” The fact the building has to rise 17 feet above ground level in order to accommodate the LRT track creates the opportunity for an active street level that will include a large outdoor public plaza complete with a coffee shop. Redefining libraries The strong sense of community embodied in the exterior of the New Central Library will also be reflected in the 236,000 square feet of interior space. “The design of the New Central Library was a huge public exercise that involved rethinking how a library is used and what it can represent to a city and a community,” states Kate Thompson, director of development for the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC). “It wasn’t a matter of looking at what you already have and multiplying it by 20 per cent. It was a total rethinking of what a library is and how it will likely be used, and then designing to suit those new parameters.” The first piece of criteria is to be an inviting space for all. And the building’s design is such that one is “invited in” as soon as one walks through the entrance. “Upon entering the library, a person will be able to actually see the interior of the library cascading up to the different

floors above,” explains Adamson. “This is because the physical design of the first two floors follows the rise of the LRT track. The openness of the design will draw the person’s eyes up and through the entire library providing an intuitive understanding of how the library works.” This central atrium forms the heart and soul of the library’s interior and boasts a wooden staircase that winds its way up through all four floors. Natural light is provided through the ample skylights above. “We didn’t want this to look like an office space with a lot of walls and hallways,” says Thompson. “We wanted people to see other people in the library and to move throughout the space easily. We wanted to interconnect all of the floors so that people could see up and down and from side to side so that they would

Accent on art Public art will also be an integral component of the New Central Library – forging stronger community ties in the process. CMLC has allocated more than $2 million to several different public art initiatives – both of which are being managed under CMLC’s robust Art in the Public Realm program for East Village. The first of these initiatives involves two up-and-coming local artists and the creation of temporary art installations for the construction hoarding along Third Street Southeast and between Seventh and Ninth Avenues. The two winning artists – Serena Malyon and Ricole Fedyna – will each receive a $35,000 for their installations. Both of the local, upand-coming artists displayed a great capacity to both understand the site and the project. Malyon began working on “The Story of East Village” in October 2014. It will remain in place until the beginning of 2016. Her concept shows a visual timeline of Calgary’s growth – travelling from the untouched landscape to First Nation settlements to the establishment of Fort Calgary and culminating in the New Central Library in 2018. The art provides historical context to the actual building site and shows it as one of the pinnacles of the city’s achievements thus far. Using large, symbolic paintings easily visible from a distance, Malyon provides bright colours, textures, and clean forms guaranteed to capture the eyes of passersby. The second installation, coined “Eyes Opening like Morning Glories”, will go up in July 2016 and will remain in place

102

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

for approximately 28 months. Fedyna will use a multi-layered collage of images in an assortment of media to emphasize how the New Central Library will be a place to come together to create and collaborate. The main focus will be a celebration of how the connection to the natural world and the changing seasons has directed much of the city’s cultural fabric. Images of the vintage past will be layered with bright and colourful drawings of the present and future city. Book pages will be used to add a textural background layer to the artwork while also reflecting how the new library will bring together a sharing of ideas and knowledge through the written word. The second dimension of Art in the Public Realm program for the New Central Library involves the creation of permanent public art to “beautify, enliven, and activate” various spaces within the new library complex. It began with an invitation to locally, nationally, and internationally qualified artists to create work(s) of public art for the interior of the New Central Library. “The RFQs went out in July 2014 and we had over 240 applicants from around the world,” states Kate Thompson, director, Development, CMLC. “We were pleasantly surprised with the tremendous response we had.” A community-led volunteer jury was comprised of representatives from the Calgary Arts Development, Calgary Public Library, Alberta College of Art and Design, East Village Inglewood community, and Glenbow Museum.

For one, the first floor will host the “Library Express”, a sort of mini-bookstore concept with the latest best-sellers on display. Also on the first floor will be the Children’s Library – a special play and reading area targeted specifically to children and outfitted with special finishes to accommodate their tactile nature. The second floor will host a coffee shop and food service area.

members included CMLC, City of Calgary Public Art Department, and DIALOG. Despite the difficult task of whittling down an impressive list, the jury eventually narrowed the list of finalists down to the following five artists: • American sculptor Alice Aycock; • Canadian sculptor Brian Jungen; • Canadian interactive media artists Rafael Lozano-Hemmer/Sakchin Bessette; • European/American multimedia artist and sculptor Christian Moeller; and • American mixed media artist Janet Zweig. Each of the five finalists received an official RFP, along with an invitation to visit Calgary and meet with members of the Calgary Public library, local historians, and CMLC. Together, they toured the existing Central Library, as well as the New Central Library site in the East Village and the surrounding community to gain a better understanding of how the New Central Library and their art could fit this emerging neighbourhood and the city. The artists also engaged in discussions with CMLC, prime design consultants Snøhetta and DIALOG, and staff from the Calgary Public Library in order to determine of the function and architectural details of the new facility, the history of the site and the opportunity of placement of public art pieces outside and within the building. At the end of the day, each

of the artists were asked to go back and design their proposals before making the final submissions to the jury. “We had identified about nine areas that we thought were relevant for the placement of public art,” states Thompson. “The artists came back with many, many more. In the end, there will be one artist who will design for one or two specific areas.” In making their final proposals, the five artists were asked to meet the following criteria: • Reinforce the identity of the New Central Library and offer a sense of orientation within the complex; • Beautify, enliven, and activate various spaces; surprise, delight, and provoke memorable interaction; • Be equally visible both day and night; • Mediate between the architectural scale and the human scale, and act as a visual counterpoint to the surface materials used throughout; and • Add to Calgary’s cultural wealth. The winner will be announced in early 2016. “I’ve worked on a lot of public art initiatives in the past few years and it’s supposed to be an emotional subject – that’s what public art is,” states Thompson. “But this is as close as I have seen to it being a unanimous decision. I think Calgarians are in for a surprise. This is going to be an amazing building and an amazing space. And the best thing about it is that it will be a public space.” n

with the events being visible to those on the outside through the full curtain wall. The New Central Library will also offer its users other designated community or gathering spaces, which will be available on a first-come, first-serve, no-cost basis. “A large part of what a library can be is a community gathering space,” states Thompson. “The space has to be flexible enough to accommodate the large senior population already present in the neighbourhood and the emerging younger population moving in. It needs to offer enough meeting rooms for the people living in condos to come in and use for business meetings or conferences. The library has a mandate to be suitable for everyone.” The third and fourth floors of the New Central Library will reflect a more academic feel. “The higher up you go, the more serious are the colours and materials,” states

Thompson. “It becomes quieter and more contemplative.” The third floor will house a series of book collections, along with more quiet reading spaces and gathering rooms, while the fourth floor will house the wood-panelled Great Reading Room, styled to be more reminiscent of what people expect when they think of a traditional library. Building for tomorrow Being flexible enough to accommodate all of the different people in an emerging downtown community – the East Village is expected to be home to 11,000 new residents by 2027 – isn’t the only determining factor behind the design of the New Central Library. It also has to accommodate the current one million visitations per year being experienced by the current Central Library. And, it has to be able to be flexible enough to accommodate the future

needs of what a library will be – whatever those may be. “The building shouldn’t be relevant just for 2018 when it opens but for 2028 and 2038,” states Thompson. “We don’t know what that will be but we’ve tried to build in some flexibility by installing raised flooring so we could put the heating and data connections underneath. We’ve also tried to build in some modularity by using demountable partitions to construct a portion of our interior spaces.” The New Central Library is already under construction and is being delivered via a construction management approach. But whatever the future of the New Central Library may be, one can rest assured that it will continue to meet the demands of the ever-growing community in which it serves – a mandate that has been embodied in the very heart and soul of the building itself. n

REPORT | ACA Update

ACA Update

Dave Kinley, 2015 Chairman A comprehensive operations retreat confirmed the ACA’s priorities remain focused on government advocacy, development, and promotion of industry standard practices, and promotion of a skilled workforce. ACA’s priorities for 2015 are: 1. Maintaining adequate and predictable levels of public investment in the face of declining oil prices. The ACA continues to advocate the provincial government to develop a long-term capital project and deferred maintenance spending program/budget. As Alberta’s largest purchaser of construction services, the province influences the market price for construction services by adding or postponing (cancelling) projects in a market that is currently operating near capacity. Conversely, the development of projects during slow economic times resulting from a change in oil prices or other economic influences, allows the construction industry to maintain their skilled workforce. A consistent number of skilled

workers delivering construction services is critical. ACA conveyed these recommendations in letters to the premier and cabinet, in a meeting with the Minister of Infrastructure and Transportation Brian Mason, in a follow-up meeting with David Dodge, who has been retained by the government to advise them on long term capital planning, and to Wildrose opposition critics. 2. Working with Alberta Infrastructure (AI) and other owners to ensure they remain preferred clients. Specific initiatives include modernizing procurement practices, adoption of industry standard documents, and minimizing delays in payment. Fair procurement practices that recognize the public demand for “best value” should be supported by Alberta Infrastructure. In addition to fair procurement, the government should adopt the use of CCDC standard documents, which clearly outline important commercial terms, such as prompt payment

terms and acceptable amounts of liability. Alberta Infrastructure will be considered a preferred client if they adopt a position of familiarity and fairness with current construction industry practices. A team of volunteer ACA contractors have held a series of meetings with Alberta Infrastructure regarding AI contracts. ACA’s intent is advocate AI adopt CCDC contracts with minimal supplementary conditions. In responding to the prompt pay issue, ACA’s board passed the following motions: • ACA initiate collaborative industry dialogue to develop a voluntary industry solution (voluntary code of practice) to demonstrate willingness to lead even before legislation is developed. • ACA advocate a legislative solution to remedy the issue of late payments that are not in compliance with the payment provisions of the construction contract, using CCDC contract language. Further, that ACA seek a

solution that accommodates payment provisions in alternate financing contracts, and reduces the potential for harming contractor’s reputations in securing repeat business from owners. ACA has formed a new committee with representation from a number of owner, consultant, and contractor groups to assist in progressing on these motions. The initial focus is to establish a best practice which can be used to help owners, general contractors, and subcontractors meet prompt payment needs for all. 3. Advocating for balanced and reasonable safety and WCB policies and enforcement, with specific focus on silica exposure and on interpretations of refusal of modified work. The ACA is advocating with OHS to revisit the Occupational Exposure Limit to silica dust. The ACA is partnering with a number of associations to urge that the no-fault principle employed by the WCB not apply to post-incident terminations for cause. ACA has completed a draft silica management practice and is approaching the Alberta Construction Safety Association to develop training courses followed by job-site testing to determine whether best practices are effective and economically feasible. ACA also met with Job, Skills, Training and Labour Minister Lori Sigurdson to express concerns that the current Occupational Exposure Limit for silica of .025 is not supported by medical evidence and that testing at the .025 level may not be scientifically reliable. 4. Strengthening relationships with Alberta’s education system to develop our future workforce. Clearly, the federal and provincial government, the public, and the construction industry would prefer to hire Canadian workers with the necessary skills to perform the tasks required to deliver a project. To support the long-term growth of a skilled construction workforce, we must partner with Alberta’s educational system to promote an interest in the construction industry. Our industry must be seen as a positive career choice to influence youth to consider a career in construction.

ACA, the Red Deer Construction Association, and Merit Contractors are partnering to offer a pilot program through which educators can receive short-term job shadowing with members. Raising awareness of construction career opportunities will assist educators in providing guidance to students about their options. 5. Continued rollout, adoption, and maintenance of the trade definitions. The use of trade definitions provide clarity to all construction project stake-

There is a new player in the construction industry – one that will switch up the way professionals in the field do business. It is an annual workshop which brings together owners, architects, engineers, and contractors to discuss joint issues and commit to collaborative problem solving. This OAEC event, operational since 2013, will break down silo thinking, create empathy for other disciplines, and build more efficient ways of communicating to get projects completed on time and on budget. And so far, it is working. David Lee, project manager with Cadillac Fairview, is a newbie at these events, but is already impressed. At his first workshop in February 2015, he developed some empathy for public owners, like the City of Calgary, who have less flexibility than private owners do. Cadillac Fairview, for example, has more independence and feels it receives more value for its money by using a collaborative, construction management process at competitive fees, tendering most trade work under an openbook policy. It is not restricted by public tenders and having to reward lowest, but perhaps not the best, bids. He garnered a better understanding of his construction colleagues. For example, a general contractor may have trouble rounding up quality subtrades for a job. But such a problem can delay projects and compromise owners’ schedules, causing

major headaches and frustrations for both parties. In this case, says Lee, the parties need to talk about the situation in advance - how can the general contractor get his subtrades on board efficiently, and is there room to open up the schedule if necessary? He also recognized he was already working co-operatively at Cadillac Fairview. Lee’s teams get involved in projects up front and are included in every phase of the job. They work together on budgets and schedules; they see every subtrade proposal and sign off on key decisions. “We agree that we are going in a certain direction,” he says. “There is a lot of risk absorbed this way.” Lee is looking forward to learning more at future events. “I want to focus on the efficiency and rigour of the [construction] process, how can we work best together, and how can we make it a natural experience?” There will be many more opportunities to figure that out. In fact, two task forces were struck after this year’s workshop, to expand on crucial and well-received topics from that event - Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Good Leaders. These task forces will conduct research and distribute results to attendees before the 2016 workshop, creating a year-round learning framework. BIM is a system which uses many types of software to develop


FEATURE | OAEC Workshop

co-ordinated 3D models for use in every stage of the construction process. This collaboration tool is of particular interest to Dragan Marinkovic, BIM specialist, manager with CANA Construction and task force member, who has been developing a variety of applications at his company. “I live and breathe this stuff 24-7,” he admits. “I am very passionate.” At its best, BIM will track exactly what is going on with a project at any given point, will save time and money as less paper will be needed for permits, and drawings will be accessible to all parties to both view and to import their own data. BIM is being used in 70 per cent of construction projects in Australia and is taking off in the United States and the United Kingdom. Canada is way behind, says Marinkovic. The reasons for this are many. First, the software and training costs money. Some are not sure how BIM will benefit their company and may not want others to see how they operate; this is anathema to BIM which is all about co-operation. And old-school thinking always drags down the introduction of anything new and innovative, including the use of BIM, he states. But the task force intends to work with national BIM organizations to educate users and to build standardized Canadian models. This way, newcomers need not re-invent the wheel; they can use the same models as other architects, engineers, or general contractors across the country. Discussions with government will also be important; when government starts to mandate the use of BIM, its use will take off exponentially. And Marinkovic is determined to accommodate one final request from workshop attendees: make BIM simple to use. This will be important, agrees Scott White, president of Western Electrical Management and a fellow task force member, to help construction professionals get on board with a new way of operating. But many questions remain. Is BIM really necessary if you are building a condo complex with identical flooring and features? Do you really need 3D modelling for smaller projects? Smaller companies may also want to contract out BIM expertise – what are the pros and cons of this? And, in an economic

downturn, how do we convince people BIM is worth investing in now? But White is committed to working out these kinks, “BIM is the way the construction industry is going. I am proud to be part of the process and excited about the possibilities.” Bill Chomik, senior principal with Kasian Architecture, feels the same way about the topic of good leaders. “Leadership permeates everything we do,” says this task force member. He and his group are looking at what qualities and skill sets make a good leader. So far, the most common quality being raised is humility. If you can be true to yourself, can relate to others and not pretend to walk on water, you will have followers. The strongest skill is listening. But the most shocking revelation is the fact that people don’t consider themselves leaders in their organizations. If you think leaders are only of the Mother Teresa variety, you will be setting a very high bar to emulate. But adopting leadership qualities in one’s day-to-day job, regardless of what that is, will be an asset to any office environment. Chomik is also concerned with the way people refuse to be leadership-like. Rather, people are finger-pointing, risk averse, and will not take a stand lest they get their hands slapped or lose their jobs. “They are cowards,” he says, adding the workplace suffers as a result of the negativity and ennui. However, he is determined to turn that dynamic around and he will start by putting out task force results in a more creative and accessible way, such as YouTube possibly. After that, the next phase of work will begin - how to get people to actually become leaders in their company and community. Lee and other workshop attendees will be on hand to take part in these discussions and contribute to subsequent action plans. “We share a common goal – to get the job done well, to get more work as a result, and to keep the industry going,” he says. “Great teamwork builds better projects.” n

Increased Tempo

Excitement builds as the National Music Centre comes to life

By Melanie Franner

Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre, will be another iconic building that is associated with Calgary, as well as showcasing the city is serious about celebrating music in Canada.

The Canadian music industry has its eyes – and ears – on the city of Calgary. That’s because Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre (NMC), is setting the stage as an iconic piece of architecture. Inspired by the natural landscape of Western Canada, the curved geometric shape of the building is readily becoming apparent. “The story of music in Canada is a big one and we needed a gesture equal to that,” says Andrew Mosker, president and CEO at NMC. “A building like this not only captures people’s attention, it shows that we’re serious about celebrating music in Canada.” The NMC and Bell entered into a 12year, $10-million partnership to support construction of the new facility. The

money will go towards the total $168 million price tag. “NMC is an example of how Calgary is growing as a metropolitan centre and expanding our cultural institutions,” says Jason North, project director, CANA Management Ltd. “The NMC will be another iconic building that is associated with Calgary. For CANA, being able to help revitalize the East Village district into a vibrant neighbourhood anchored by inspiring cultural institutions with remarkable architecture, like the NMC, is a very gratifying experience. A complicated project The NMC is anything but a simple design, as seen in the experienced construction team needed to bring it to fruition.

“With the complex architecture on the project, teamwork has been essential to finding solutions to the unique conditions and challenging geometry,” says North. “The nature of the building design is that detailing and constructability reviews are not possible in the traditional sense because there are so many unique conditions around the building. As one example, in order to properly construct the building geometry, the design team provided over 800,000 layout points to CANA from the design model in a format useful for the construction team. In another example, 3D modelling was used extensively to route pipe runs across the separate open areas of the building in an architecturally acceptable manner. In both of these cases, the

design and construction teams worked closely together to find a buildable solution.” Despite being one of the more complex buildings to emerge on Calgary’s burgeoning architectural scene, NMC’s new home at Studio Bell has captured the hearts of residents and workers alike. “All of the trades, on an individual basis, are thrilled to be a part of this project,” states Gary Duke, with Duke Evans Inc., project manager on the NMC. “It’s a real challenge and everyone has a deep sense of pride for having been involved. And I think it shows in the workmanship.” This workmanship has progressed to the point where Studio Bell is about 75 per cent complete. Most of the building envelope is up and work has begun on the cladding systems and curtain wall. The roofing is also being finalized. Another significant milestone is that the crew is in the midst of taking down the temporary bridge that was necessary for the construction of the “Plus 65

112

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

Bridge”, as it is known. This is the footbridge, which is located 65 feet above the ground on the fifth floor of NMC. The bridge connects the east and west blocks of Studio Bell, spanning two city blocks, two pedestrian sidewalks, and four lanes of vehicular traffic in the process. “I think people are surprised by the Plus 65 Bridge,” says Duke. “They look at the outside and see the complexity of it. But the real complexity is actually on the inside.” Inside NMC, the steel studwork is about 90 per cent complete, the skylights are 60 per cent complete, and installation of the hardwood floors and other finishes will soon be underway. Also imminent is the installation of the 220,000 terra cotta tiles that will be affixed to the exterior and interior of the building. The terra cotta tiles were inspired by the natural landscape, each featuring a different tone that appears to change colour as light shines on its surface. These different tones also sym-

bolize the diversity of music that will be represented inside. The tiles were made in Germany and given a custom glaze in the Netherlands before making their way to NMC. “If you look at the amount of terra cotta tiles on the building, at least 80,000 square feet of the tiles will be installed inside the building,” explains Duke, who adds that Studio Bell itself offers an expansive 160,000 square feet of space in total. “The tiles are signature pieces of art that add to the overall design of the facility.” Another interesting aspect of the NMC construction story is the dismantling and reconstruction on the renowned King Edward Hotel. Structural issues were discovered in the hotel during the initial construction phase of Studio Bell (which is being built around it) and the decision was made to restore the historically designated hotel to its former glory. “The brick façade posed some challenges in that it had about three different layers of lead-based paint,” says

Duke. “There was a lot of remediation work involved.” Needless to say, the brick façade was dismantled in one-square-metre patches so that it could be reassembled on a later date. This later date is scheduled to take place by the end of October 2015 – by which point the King Eddy is expected to be fully reconstructed. The hotel’s famous neon sign was reinstalled on September 24, 2015. “With a little under six months to go before the 2016 Juno awards festivities kick off in Calgary, the pace of work remains hectic at the NMC,” muses North.“Inside the building, the helical feature stairs are now installed. The geometry of these stairs is so complex that no two treads are the same shape. The stairs were fabricated from 3D computer models and shipped to site in assembled sections that were bolted together. These stairs will provide views within the building of the unique shapes of the interconnected vessels that form the building architecture.” Music to all ears While construction continues on the physical structure of NMC’s new home, Studio Bell, work on delivering exceptional programming that combines exhibitions, performance, incubation, and education at NMC is well underway. Director of programs Adam Fox is very excited about the potential being presented with the new facility. “This is an amazing, audacious project that Canada’s music industry really needs and deserves,” he says. “NMC has been a great connective tissue for the local music scene and as a place where people can get together and connect. I think that over time, the new NMC will become a real pivotal jumping-off point and a major musical hub for the Canadian music industry.” Fox, who has been a musician since the age of 15, envisions NMC’s role as being, first and foremost, a way to tell Canada’s unique story. “It’s about celebrating this great musical legacy that Canada has,” he says. “It’s a great story and it needs to be told.” The other aspect, adds Fox, is being an activist.

“NMC will become an instigator,” he says. “It’s not about being just a passive reflector but about becoming a catalyzing force that helps to create new opportunities. Most musicians at heart are music fans and to have five storeys of exhibitions to tell our stories will be very exciting.” Of course, having the legendary Rolling Stones Mobile Studio on hand won’t hurt either. The studio was the first professional multi-tracking studio on wheels that allowed musicians the freedom to record from any location and, as such, is an important piece of technology. “We’re taking the most legendary mobile analog recording studio and combining it with one of the most unique collections of music technology in the world,” says Fox. “I don’t think there will be any real limitations to the possibilities.” The collection of technology and instruments are so profound, it’s generating praise from Grammy-winning artists. “The instrument collection at NMC is a significant resource for Canada, and for musicians and the public in general,” states Gotye, the musician best known for his explosive hit, “Somebody That I Used to Know”, and past NMC Artist in Residence. “The Artist in Residence program is a fundamental part of it being a living collection.” Also at the heart of the new NMC will be several different streams of programming geared towards artists and incubation. The first will be through NMC’s Artist in Residence program, intended for artists, who Fox describes as wanting to come in and explore the living collection to develop new creative pursuits – be they in composition, or recording. The second programming stream is being made possible through financial support from RBC and is termed the Masters in Residence program. This line of study will take recognized experts in their field – in subjects such as production, composition, songwriting, promotion – and pair them with emerging artists or individuals inter-

ested in attaining more expertise in that particular area. “We want to see this organization emerge as one offering unparalleled support for artists and individuals,” says Fox. “We have such a magnificent collection of artifacts and our collection of music technology is outstanding. NMC presents a tremendous opportunity for artists across the country. It’s such an amazing asset for this city and for the region – and for its contribution nationally as well.”

The sound of music Kate Schutz, education manager at NMC, is another individual who is very excited about the prospects of the new home for music in Canada. “I’ve been with the organization for six years, so I have been involved in the new facility from the start,” she says. “It’s great to be a part of something that will ultimately change Calgary and Canada.” Schutz goes on to describe the education programming as one that focuses on the use of music to talk about other

subjects – be it science, math, or language arts. During the construction of Studio Bell, her team has gone out into schools and other community outreach centres bringing musicians, bands, and instruments to people young and old. “We offer authentic learning experiences that, in the case of schools, are tied into the curriculum,” says Schutz. “Students get to meet technicians, broadcasters, artists. It’s very hands-on. It’s not your typical museum or classroom experience. We get the students to play and experiment. We thrive on student participation.” “My class visited the National Music Centre. I learned about throat singing… we got to dance and try throat singing. This was very cool because it is my grandma’s culture. She is Inuit. I am in piano lessons now because I liked all the instruments and the way they sounded and I wanted to play my own instrument,” expresses Reese, a Calgary Grade 2 student. To date, the organization has been able to bring this hands-on experience to about 10,000 learners each year. But this will soon expand dramatically. “We anticipate the much larger capacity being provided with Studio Bell will raise that number to somewhere between 50,000 to 70,000,” she says. One way to accomplish this task, adds Schutz, is through distance learning. “I think our new distance-learning capability is a game changer for us,” she says. “Our distance-learning programs

are multi-point, which means, for example, we can connect simultaneously with classrooms in Nunavut and here, and with the Smithsonian all at the same time. We’ll also be able to livestream any NMC performance all over the world.” NMC’s new national mandate means that its audience and reach needs to be broader. And it’s something Schutz is most eager to fulfill. “I think it allows us to tell a bigger and more interesting story about Canada’s music legacy – one not told before,” she says. “And it’s a way for us to encourage and invite two-way dialogue in the process.” Waiting in the wings While the physical structure of Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre, is slowly being built into the breathtaking and complex architectural icon that it will eventually become, work on the interior programming is also well underway. Combining four pillars of exhibitions, performance, education, and incubation, programming will come together to deliver unprecedented access into Canada’s legendary music history. NMC’s programs are designed to provide original and inspiring experiences for all ages; create access to NMC’s exceptional collection; draw on NMC’s rich partnerships, at the regional, national, and international levels; and provide creative opportunities for musicians, researchers, and technicians. The programs will inform, educate, excite, and inspire – all the necessary components of a composition well worth hearing. And one that will hopefully be the catalyst for future artists and musicians who can one day leave behind their own small piece of Canadian history. “This is a one-of-a-kind, never-beenbuilt before building,” says Duke, who adds that he has 32 years of industry experience under his belt. “It’s been a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to work on this project.” n

From the Ground Up

A closer look at Calgary’s burgeoning condo market By Jillian Mitchell

N3, the newest condo project slated for the East Village, is Calgary’s first no-parking, pedestrian-centred condo development.

While Alberta’s largest city has forever held a nickname more suited to an Ol’ west, one-horse town, in actuality, Calgary has long been Wild Rose Country’s hub for economic development and progressive thinking. Case in point - for the first time in the city’s history, councillors unanimously approved the construction of a no-parking, pedestrian-centred condo development. N3, the newest condo project slated for the city’s East Village, is anticipated to appeal to a younger demographic (age 25 to 28) who don’t own cars and who value an urban village atmosphere.

118

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

The decision will result in considerable savings for future condo dwellers buying into the N3 building—to the tune of $70,000 per unit, as compared to an akin development with parkade—allowing Calgarians to more easily transition into homeownership. Adding to its urban appeal, the highly anticipated N3 site at Eighth Avenue Southeast is kiddie corner to the City Hall LRT station, with Calgary’s downtown attractions only a short walk away. Currently in pre-construction, and on track for a summer 2016 completion, the East Village’s 15-storey condomin-

ium will boast one- and two-bedroom furnished suites, ranging in size (460 square feet to 620 square feet) and price ($199,000 to $349,900). The N3 is a Knightsbridge Homes development which publicly launched in fall 2015. “The tower has 168 units and so far we’ve got about 1,600 registered names,” says Susan Veres, vice-president of marketing and communications for the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC), which is overseeing the redevelopment of all the East Village. “It’s priced well and designed well. I’m excited to see the launch of this product; we haven’t launched any new product this year and we’re sold out.” As Veres confirms, if the launch of N3 is successful, a complementary sister tower will be scheduled for development. N3 (or “New attitude, new vision, new lifestyle”) is part of Calgary’s East Village, a much larger and long anticipated development along the banks of the Bow and Elbow Rivers. The previously neglected area of the city is being brought back to life by CMLC, which was formed in 2007 by the City of Calgary to address the plighted area. CMLC is the master planner of the 49-acre parcel situated between Fort Calgary and the downtown business core. The corporation assembled most of the land in the community and by February 2011, 30 per cent of its developable land parcels were sold and slated for development. A total 4,000 units are slated for development within the East Village, as is a shopping mall, the new Central Library, and National Music Centre, thanks to CMLC’s almost $400-million investment and an additional $3 billion from thirdparties, to date. Veres adds that much of CMLC’s investment has gone towards “horizontal infrastructure,” such as roads and bridges, connecting the development to Calgary’s downtown core. “It’s probably one of the larger brown-

“The East Village has undergone a tremendous transformation. There have been several attempts to try and get it going; the last one has actually worked,” says Schofield. “There will be people moving into condos later this year between 11,000 and 12,000, and those people will obviously work there or in the downtown.” In addition Schofield says that East Villagers will no doubt utilize the city’s vibrant downtown core as their own little mecca for entertainment and shopping. Compared to Calgary’s east, the city’s west side is a little quieter on the development front, though its unobstructed views of the mountains and the river hint at an obvious real estate perk. One such promising development is Cidex Development’s West Village Towers, a mixed-use development featuring 600 rental units and 90,000 square feet of retail space. These towers, which may also house an urban supermarket, could hopefully be the catalyst for more development in the area plagued by development hurdles such as large swaths of contaminated land with a hefty remediation price-tag. The biggest boon for the West Village will be the future construction of the proposed $890-million-project CalgaryNEXT, a multipurpose event centre which can be utilized for hockey games and concerts, as well as a CFL-sized field, FIFA-sized soccer field, and 400-metre track. The construction of the massive project would also include upgraded infrastructure and transportation making the West Village a more desirable location for future development. n

field redevelopment programs in Canada right now,” adds Veres. “The entire 49 acres is a live construction site.” For the city’s current and prospective condo dwellers, it’s a land of plenty, from the many dwellings in the East Village, to the vibrant Eau Claire Market’s two condominium towers (one at 14 storeys and 105 units, the other at 17 storeys and 113 units), to Waterfront Parkside’s two towers (Parkside SE at nine storeys and 71 units, and Parkside SW at 18 storeys and 141 units), to Calgary’s soaring Guardian Twin Towers at 44 storeys each. However, according to the Calgary Real Estate Board (CREB), what was once a red-hot condo market has perhaps found an equilibrium—at least for now. “We’ve moved into balanced conditions,” says CREB President Corinne Lyall. “The first quarter of our year was fairly slow and that was really reflective of consumer confidence and people waiting to see what was going to happen with the energy sector.” Lyall affirms that Calgary’s ample development hotspots will present future opportunities for condo-seekers, a group that, for the majority, seem to be the Gen X and Gen Y 30-somethings. Higher-end luxury condos adorning heftier price tags, conversely, are scooped up by their Baby Boomer predecessors. “The hotspot would be downtown and historic downtown. So areas like Inglewood, East Village, The Beltine, those would be number one in terms of popularity,” she says. “And then it would branch out to probably the southeast and northwest quarters of Calgary.” According to CREB, overall sales activ-

ity in Calgary is forecasted to total 19,798 in 2015, a 22 per cent decline relative to last year, but only six per cent lower than average activity over the past five years. While slower demand is impacting all sectors of the market, the apartment sector is expected to record the largest pull-back in both sales and price growth in the second half.  Of the 5,498 condo listings from January to June 2015, a total 2,699 have sold with an average selling price of $320,684. From January to June 2014, 3,870 of the 5,762 listings sold; the average selling price was $329,830.  Recently, CREB has made changes to the way housing statistics are reported, with its transition to the new Matrix™ MLS® System. Changes to the categorization of properties are expected to improve data accuracy. An abundance of available developments translates into a great deal of optimism for the Calgary Downtown Association (CDA), as the downtown and surrounding area’s condo-owners will boost business in the city’s core. CDA Director Maggie Schofield says the energy industry, to a certain degree, is affecting the core area’s business owners from an economic perspective, but the future is not all gloom and doom. Schofield cites the city’s buildup of condos on both sides of the river as an indication of an expanding population, with many condo dwellers supporting those core downtown businesses on evenings and weekends. She also remains optimistic about the East Village development and how that will affect business downtown.

CalgaryNEXT – A Vision for the West Village

CalgaryNEXT will consist of a 19,500-seat event centre for hockey games and concerts and a public fieldhouse composed of a CFL-sized field with 30,000 seats, a FIFA-sized soccer field, and a 400-metre track.

The earliest discussions stemmed from a pragmatic need to replace the aging Scotiabank Saddledome which was built in 1983, and, depending on completion of CalgaryNEXT, could be 40 years old. But this broader vision evolved after additional elements were considered: McMahon Stadium was also long in the tooth, a fieldhouse was of key importance to Calgarians, and the Sunalta site was accessible. Why not throw all those into the mix and create a top-of-the-line, multiuse structure which would be the epicentre of the West Village? “All major cities have facilities like this,” says Ken King, president and CEO of the Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation. “They serve as cultural, recreational, and sports hubs, as places to connect and converge, and often become global trademarks. Quite simply, they are integral to healthy communities.” As well, they serve to highlight a com-

munity’s progression and evolution. CalgaryNEXT, for example, is intended to boast architectural pride and will be “ergonomically superb” with the ultimate in access and comfort features. “We want to make sure people have a good experience and will want to come to this place,” he adds. “This place” will consist of a 19,500seat event centre for hockey games and concerts and a public fieldhouse composed of a CFL-sized field with 30,000 seats (expandable to 50,000 seats for major events), a FIFA-sized soccer field, and a 400-metre track. The cost for the facility is pegged at $890 million, plus the cost of remediating the environmental damage from a creosote plant which was housed there from 1924 until its closure 40 years later. A project of this size and cost is generating a lot of buzz. And there are several “emerging issues,” admits King.

One of which is the contamination of the proposed site. “That issue needs to be resolved. We don’t need to wait for a conclusion on this to continue other work, but we do need a conclusion,” he says, adding the corporation has recently hired a consultant to investigate the cost and process of remediation. Another issue is the importance of understanding the funding model. The Flames group will kick in $450 million from owners and from user fees (ticket prices). It is hoped that the $200 million for the fieldhouse will come from the City, which has already prioritized it as a future recreational need. The remaining piece is expected to come from a unique municipal framework known as a community revitalization levy. This is a mechanism whereby monies laid out for developmental projects are recovered through designated portions of the elevated prop-

erty taxes which will be associated with those projects. At the time of writing, the City has not committed to either of these expenditures. Transportation services for the location also need to be considered. “I said in the past that the LRT and pedestrian traffic will be a huge asset,” says King. “But that was misconstrued to suggest there won’t be enough parking.” There will certainly be a need for restructured roadways and additional parking in order for the site to be used and enjoyed. He explains, “those elements are important to everyone.” And, finally, concerns over the future of the iconic Saddledome have been raised. King and his group have put forward an idea for the building to be transformed into a trade show venue, but will work together with the City and any interested stakeholders to come to any viable solution. The decision-making ultimately rests with the City (owners of the facility), not the Flames group (managers of the facility). Next steps will include talks and planning strategies with interested and affected parties such as the mayor, the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation, the Convention Centre, the University of Calgary (who owns McMahon Stadium), and the Calgary Multisport Fieldhouse Society. In the immediate future, watch for a “reasonable flow” of information into the public realm about the results of these initiatives. The Calgary Construction Association’s executive fully endorses CalgaryNEXT, and will be contacting the mayor and city council to show their support for building a project of this magnitude and look forward to the commencement of construction. Although King is reluctant to link a time frame to the project, he agrees that all good things take time to build. CalgaryNEXT is no different, but it will be worth the wait. “We are at least a generation behind regarding these kinds of facilities,” he adds. “We need better construction, better efficiencies and better technologies to serve the needs of our growing population and our visitors.” n

The cost for the facility is pegged at $890 million, plus the cost of remediating the environmental damage from a former creosote plant that was on site.

Transportation services for the location will be considered, such as LRT access, restructured roadways, and additional parking in order for the site to be used and enjoyed.

Trailblazing in Trades

Five women discuss what it’s like to be female in the construction industry By Lisa Fattori According to Statistics Canada, 12 per cent of Canadian women have careers in the construction industry. That number is on the rise as more women registered in a number of skilled trades. In Alberta, 7.8 per cent of those working in trades, transport and equipment operations are women, a number that nearly doubled between 2004 and 2014. Given that Alberta women had the highest employment rate and the

second lowest unemployment rate of all women in Canada in 2014, competition for female workers is high. For the construction industry, the challenge remains to raise awareness about the opportunities in the sector and to attract more women to pursue careers in the trades. The CCA salutes the following women who are trailblazers in their chosen fields and who inspire the next generation of women tradespeople:

Stephanie Roll, vice-president of Executive Millwork Inc. and Calgary Construction Association chair Straight out of high school, Stephanie Roll landed a summer job with a masonry company to make some money for university in the fall. Temporary work, however, turned into a full-time position and for the next five years Roll gained experience as a receptionist, order desk clerk, and payroll/ accounting employee. Today, as vice-president of Executive Millwork Inc. and chair of the CCA, Roll is still passionate about the construction industry, and her career, which spans more than 30 years, exemplifies the breadth of opportunities that exist within the sector. “This is a really exciting and rewarding career; in building things, you get a real sense of pride and accomplishment,” says Roll. “With a great work ethic, the sky is the limit. If you continuously educate yourself and love what you do, you can take your career as far as you want to go.” In the early 1980s, Roll and her husband, a finishing carpenter, purchased, renovated, and sold their first home. Their finishing business began in a small shop in their garage, which they quickly outgrew. The couple rented shop space and continued to upgrade until purchasing their own building in 1992. Residential finishing projects parlayed into a focus on commercial millwork and contracts with national retailers, including Shaw, Quiznos, Rogers Video, Blockbuster, and Hudson Group news outlets in the U.S. “I learned on the job, helping out as a labourer and continuously took courses in accounting,” says Roll. “In commercial cabinetry, systems have become far more automated, with tools that provide greater accuracy. We’ve also seen a major shift toward Lean manufacturing, which eliminates waste and improves efficiency.” As chair of the CCA, Roll governs the direction of the CCA, sitting on several committees and representing the association at industry-related events.

oversees the company’s financials, its Lean program and the Health and Safety program for 55 employees. Roll feels strongly that more women need to enter the industry to ensure success for the future of construction. “In many of the trades and, in particular, in the cabinetmaking industry, we have progressed from a career of hard labour to one that is technically innovative and automated, and that depends upon creative, intelligent, and highlymotivated team members,” she says. “With all the advancements in the industry, it has become far easier for women to thrive in a construction career.”

Karen Ryan and Lara Murphy, owners of Ryan Murphy Construction Inc. For Lara Murphy, co-owner of Ryan Murphy Construction Inc., the entrepreneurial spirit took hold at an early age. As a student, she started her own painting business, which grew to include maintenance work and renovations. While the business helped to fund Murphy’s university education, it wasn’t until she graduated that she considered embracing the trades as a full-time career. “I played soccer in university and, one day during practice, my coach asked me if I’d ever thought of a career in construction,” says Murphy. “I spent

the next year playing competitive soccer and traveling Europe, which gave me time to think, and when I returned home, I bought a heritage home and renovated.” A self-taught tradesperson, Murphy couldn’t afford to hire skilled workers for her projects, so learned by reading books, asking others, and performing her own work. In 2005, she moved to Alberta from her native New Brunswick and worked as a project manager for a Calgary construction development firm. While working on a project in Banff, Murphy met Karen Ryan, a

project manager for another company. In 2008, the two partnered to form Ryan Murphy Construction, a general contracting company that offers construction, renovation (including accessible housing), management, and maintenance services. While Murphy focuses on business development, marketing, and the residential market, Ryan heads the commercial and retail projects for the company. The expertise that each woman brings to the business has been a formula for success, with Ryan Murphy Construction growing 611 per cent in just three years. In addition, the company has been included in the list of Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneurs (W100) by PROFIT Magazine and Chatelaine in 2012, 2013, and 2014. While a female-run contracting company may seem an anomaly, for Ryan and Murphy, skill is more important than gender, in hiring the right people. “No matter what gender you are, you have to be skilled. My advice to women wanting to break into the industry is to find people who are like-minded and get in with a company where you can gain the most knowledge. Some people totally changed the course of my life, so it’s important to have a mentor.”

Brittney Pepper, electrician with Concept Group In January 2015, Brittney Pepper became a licensed electrician with Concept Group in Calgary, and now she is overseeing and teaching new apprentices. “Before I got my ticket, I was always working under someone and now I’m running jobs,” she says. “My experience has been amazing; everyone has been very open and accepting, and I really love what I do.” Pepper started out in commercial electrical work and now specializes in building management systems, planning out the wiring for water and temperature sensors, pressure sensors, and thermostats. She works with Distech Controls, which offers a leading building automation and energy management system, and is currently working on a large condominium project in downtown Calgary. “The Distech Controls system is very accurate, where you can read and control all systems right from the computer screen,” says Pepper. “There is always new, innovative technology. Distech Controls is very cutting-edge and Concept Group is one of very few companies in Western Canada approved to sell and install their systems.” In just five years, Pepper has achieved an exciting and fulfilling career, after trying different occupations and taking some college courses. She moved from B.C. to Calgary to be with her fiancé, who, along with his brother, was a tradesperson working in the city. “I was serving in a restaurant and went to the construction site, where my fiancé’s brother worked, to get a ride home,” says Pepper. “I really didn’t know what I wanted to do. We began talking about how I could also work in the trades and he and my fiancé convinced me to try it.” Concept Group hired Pepper as a labourer her first three months

until she was indentured as an apprentice. She worked another eight months before beginning her first year of schooling and, after a four-year apprenticeship, earned her Construction Electrician Red Seal certification.

“For women, thinking of a career in the trades, I say, have confidence and just go for it,” says Pepper. “I would never have tried it without the support of others. It’s changed my life.”

Fatima Dhanani, president of Bri-mor Developments Fatima Dhanani’s story is one of inspiration and courage. Dhanani was widowed suddenly in 1990 at the age of 44, and it was then she chose to take the helm of her husband’s newly founded company, Bri-mor Property Management. For the next 25 years, she expanded the firm’s management operations, to also become a leader in residential and commercial development. Despite the challenges, Dhanani’s transition from a secretary at Alberta College of Art to president of Bri-mor, has been personally and professionally fulfilling. Together with her husband and daughter, Saifa, Dhanani arrived in Vancouver from Tanzania in 1972, and then moved to Calgary in 1976. “We were a normal family committed to our new life in Canada,” says Dhanani. “After my husband, Haider, passed away, I was thrown into a business that I knew nothing about. I was a woman of ethnic origin, with no experience, and emotionally vulnerable. The years that followed were challenging, but I leaned on my faith as I faced those challenges. With each passing milestone, I became more confident to take risks and seek out new opportunities.” By mid-1990s, Bri-mor began to acquire small apartment buildings and then ventured into development of industrial and commercial projects in the following years under Bri-mor Developments. In 2005, Fatima launched her first residential estate sub-division, Aspen Cliff Estates. Together with the newer West Grove Estates project, Bri-mor will have developed nearly 350 residential homes upon completion. Continuing in Calgary’s West end, Bri-mor is also developing West 85th, a mixed use community with over 110,000 square feet of commercial space and, in partnership with Qualico’s StreetSide division, an additional 150 multi-residential units. Established in 2013, the CCA’s Women in Construction (WIC) Committee works to provide support and networking opportunities for women working in the construction industry. In May 2015, the committee hosted its first site tour at the National Music Centre for high school students. Nine girls from James Fowler High School attended the event, which included safety instruction, talks by two female tradespeople, and a tour of the site, which is currently under construction. Lunch and an afternoon interacting with WIC members gave the students the opportunity to learn more about exciting careers in construction. “This is also the first year that we’ve awarded two $1,000 scholarships to assist women who are pursuing a career in the construction industry,” says Joanne Foster, chair of the WIC Committee and a project manager with EllisDon. “The site tour of the National Music Centre was very successful and we plan to organize another event next year. The girls were overwhelmed about all of the different career options that are

Seven years ago, Dhanani’s son, Aleem, joined Bri-mor as the managing director. “Aleem has taken Bri-mor to new levels, given his heightened knowledge and experience,” says Dhanani. “We now lead Bri-mor together with a strong commitment to family values, performance and relationships before business.” Well-known and respected within Calgary’s construction sector, Dhanani is also called upon by those seeking guidance for their entrepreneurial dreams. “I encourage them to never underestimate the power that is within,” she says. “True potential surfaces when you face challenges and know that you have the power to turn those challenges into opportunities.”

Fatima Dhanani has continued to expand her business over her 25 years as president of Bri-mor Developments.

Train the Workers You Need The Canada-Alberta Job Grant Program can help make it happen

By Deb Smith

Karen Blackmur, workforce consultant with Alberta Jobs, Skills, Training and Labour, explains the Canada-Alberta Job Grant (CAJG) supports employers in developing a strong and productive workforce.

Workforce planning is vital for any company’s successful growth, especially in the labour-intensive construction industry. Planning ahead to train workers is key to filling workforce needs, but implementing this kind of plan costs money. That’s where the Canada-Alberta Job Grant (CAJG) program comes in. The CAJG program is designed and delivered by the Government of Alberta and is jointly funded by the federal government and employers. Launched in October 2014, it supports employers in developing a strong and productive workforce.

128

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

The program is a great way for employers to fill job vacancies by using the grant to train potential employees so they are equipped with the skills they need to contribute to an increasingly diversified economy. It is also a great way to upskill current employees to fill available jobs.   There are many benefits to accessing this program. Productivity increases and employees become engaged and motivated to help their employers succeed, which in turn helps the business hold onto its talented workers, reducing turnover. 

How it works The business or organization must look ahead to its projected future requirements for employees and identify what training will be needed to achieve that level of skilled workforce. This may involve current employees who need increased skills or potential employees who need training to fill positions. Because the program is employer-driven, the employer decides who gets trained and what type of training is needed. The grant was designed to be flexible enough to meet the needs of all business sizes, in all industries and regions of the province. Employers are expected to cover one-third of the training costs, while government contributes two-thirds of the cost to a maximum of $10,000 per employee annually. This means Alberta workers could receive up to a total of $15,000 of career-related training under the grant. Employers are capped at a $300,000 annual maximum to ensure all employers have an opportunity to take advantage of the grant. To be eligible for training, the employee must be a Canadian citizen, have permanent residence in Canada or be protected under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (Canada), and be entitled to work in Canada. The employer can be a private or not-for-profit business, large or small, operating in Alberta under an Alberta Corporate Access Number (ACAN). The employer must apply on behalf of its employees and cannot provide the training. Training providers must be separate from the applicant in all ways. For example, a company’s own training program would not qualify for funding. Eligible training costs include tuition, books and supplies and mandatory fees. Employee wages cannot be

The application process is simple and requires very little administrative effort. reimbursed through the grant. Aside from being separate from the employer, training must: • be at least 24 hours in length and delivered by a third-party trainer; • start within six months of grant application approval and completed within 52 weeks of program start date; • result in some sort of credential, certificate, or grade; and • not have already been paid for or started before applying for funding. “It’s also important to note that employers can bundle or combine training courses,” explains Karen Blackmur, workforce consultant with Alberta Jobs, Skills, Training and Labour. Approved training can range from equipment operation, information technology courses, office management and software skills to high school completion. It’s up to the employer to decide what is needed. Although apprenticeship training does not qualify for the grant, pre-apprenticeship courses can be covered. Many education/training institutions in Alberta have adjusted their programs to meet the requirements of the CAJG program and some even offer to assist employers in completing the application. How to apply The application process is simple and requires very little administrative effort. The application form is available at albertacanada.com/jobgrant. Download the application and fill it out electronically, then print, sign and mail the originals with signatures within 30 days prior to the training start date. Applicants will be notified by mail if they qualify for funding.  “On average, the processing time has been between two weeks and 30 days for approval,” says Blackmur. “The application needs to be signed and mailed in and if it is approved, the employer will receive a reference number.” After arranging training, the employer submits a training reimbursement form with receipts attached. At that point, the

CAJG program returns one-third of the costs to the employer. Once training is finished, the employer submits the completion form and receives the second third of the costs. If for some reason the employee does not complete the training, the grant will still be provided to the employer. Blackmur notes one of the top application issues is not having original

trainee signatures and employer signature on the application. Employers must also be sure to send in receipts rather than invoices. A detailed guide to the grant application is available for download on the CAJG website. For more information go to albertacanada.com/jobgrant or call 1-855-638-9424. n

BIM at Quarry Park Rec Centre

By Craig Palmer

Jade Neher, Bird Construction’s business development lead, shows a group of industry representatives one of the many instances where BIM’s clash detection prevented a major delay during construction.

The new Quarry Park Rec Centre will be a welcome leisure destination for the residents of the burgeoning community. The 94,000-square-foot facility is a multifaceted project, complete with swimming facilities, a gymnasium, a public library, and multi-purpose rooms for cultural and learning activities. When constructing a project like this, there is a lot to consider. One of the things Bird Construction - the general contractor for the project - considered was whether or not to use Building Information Modelling (BIM). BIM eschews the traditional 2D architectural, structural, mechanical, and electrical drawings and realizes them in a virtual 3D model. “BIM is the bringing together of all of the technologies,” says Jade Neher, business development lead at Bird Construction. “It’s almost a concept. Revit, Navisworks, Multivista, and others are being combined to create a better product.” Quarry Park wasn’t a typical BIM project where all parties use the software in

unison. For this project, GEC Architecture developed a model, but it was never intended to be used for construction. Bird obtained the model with the understanding that it was meant only as a reference tool, and the 2D Issued for Construction documents still govern. “When we found out there was a 3D model, we thought it was a good opportunity to introduce our site guys to BIM as a pilot project, and realize the benefits of it,” says Neher. Objects in these models contain data which describes what they are and how they behave. Users can navigate and manipulate the 3D space, and upload their changes to make for an immersive and collaborative environment. Bird was very much attracted to those aspects, but the most alluring component of BIM was the clash detection. In traditional non-BIM projects, clashes are detected by layering all the drawings on a light table and highlighting potential clashes. It’s an arduous task that is both time consuming and prone

to human error and oversight. If a clash isn’t caught in time, redoing the work to correct the issue can be costly. “The decision to use BIM wasn’t just about money,” says Neher. “Using the model was a massive timesaver on the project, not just for Bird, but for all subtrades involved, as any major problems are caught and dealt with before they even get on to the site.” When a model is created using BIM, clash detection can be run, and it flags wherever physical objects from the various disciplines are intersecting. Because of this simple process, errors are caught months in advance, even before the project has been started. So when a clash is detected, the only people it slows down are the people who are responsible for redesigning the 3D model, which is preferable to a group of tradespeople being slowed down. On September 30, 2015, Bird hosted a tour of the facility, which was attended by 50 industry professionals from both the architectural and consulting communi-

ties, as well as various trade contractor associations, all eager to learn about the benefits of BIM. During this tour, it was brought up that when Bird ran clash detection, about 180 grouped clashes were detected - around 50 per cent of which were deemed minor issues that could have been solved on site. That did, however, leave another 50 per cent that would have been problematic if construction had already started. One such clash was a water tank located in the basement of the facility, which the model detected was poking through the floor above. Because the tank had a specified volume, reducing the height of the tank also meant increasing the width, which would in turn further obstruct other components in the designated location. If this clash was detected during construction, the entire project would have come to a grinding halt. However, the issue was caught so far in advance that they were able offer an effective solution allowing construction to proceed smoothly. For many working on the project, it was their first time using BIM technolo-

gies like Navisworks, a software that lets users review the 3D model. The software can be loaded on to tablets so they could view the model while on site, and upload photos, videos, and PDFs to a specific point on the model, and others can comment and annotate on the media. While it may seem like a daunting new technology, those at Bird found the technology easy to use and all that was required was a one-day training session to get them started. The Calgary Construction Association (CCA) recognizes education and training is imperative to increasing BIM usage in the industry, and is taking a proactive approach to educating the industry on BIM. In 2015, at the third annual Owners, Architects, Engineers, and Contractors (OAEC) Workshop, “How to Embrace BIM” was one of the four key topics that was discussed among the industry representatives, which led to a task force being created. Through this task force, the CCA is now making a push for 2016 to be the year of BIM, and will be introducing two new education offerings. The first is BIM Level 1 training – an introduction course on BIM that talks about what it is and how it works. The second course will be Navisworks for Superintendents, which will help those on site effectively utilize the technology. BIM will also take centre stage at the next OAEC Workshop on February 24, 2016, where a panel of owners will talk about the benefits of using BIM in a collaborative and holistic manner.

Bird is planning to complete construction by the end of May 2016, and, with the help of BIM, they are well on their way to meeting the deadline. “The use of BIM was a tremendous benefit for Bird and we expect to see more of it in Calgary,” says Neher. n

COLLABORATION IV

rchitects

This workshop is structured to bring all industry partners together in a collaborative environment to interactively discuss practical everyday topics of common interest. Often each party does not understand the world that the other lives in, why things are done in a certain manner and the impact of those decisions on others. Open dialogue encourages the industry to collectively find best practices for common issues. “Time well spent! Significant benefits to all attendees that translate to better working relationship between O, A, E, C.”

The New Kid on the Construction Block Integrated project delivery builds a more efficient and communicative industry

By Colleen Biondi Photo by ArtLine Photography.

Tim Coldwell, vice-president of origination at Chandos Construction states that IPD is a better way of innovating by leveraging the power of the entire team including trade partners.

Tim Coldwell, vice-president of origination at Chandos Construction, is a fan of doing things differently in order to get better results. His company has 14 projects in various stages using a new construction delivery model, which, in his view, will completely transform the industry. Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a collaborative and co-operative model, he says, unlike traditional models where team members work in silos and are “out to protect their piece of the pie”. Sharing both risks and rewards - details of which are articulated on a single contract at the outset of the job - incentivizes a team to concentrate on the joint goal of completing a successful project. In addition, working together closely means reducing gaps in information, increasing cost-efficiency, creating less waste, and having smoother supply chain integration. Savings generated can

134

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

be injected back into the job via addedvalue features. For example, due to cost savings on a Chandos school project in Red Deer, the owner is putting in LED lighting which will reduce energy consumption and utility bills over time. “None of us is smarter than all of us,” says Coldwell. “IPD is a better way of innovating by leveraging the power of the entire team including trade partners.” And that power can be accurately measured. A North American research study, recently co-sponsored by Chandos, has 90 per cent of respondents reporting that IPD outperforms traditional construction models on 12 measures including cost, scheduling, and quality. Such quality stems from “crucial conversations,” he adds. Instead of a designer working in isolation and making a decision which will be counter-productive with masonry, he or she will talk to the bricklayer in advance, asking, “What

can I do to make it easier for you to lay the brick?” Upfront chats like these reduce the likelihood of change notices or build-arounds being necessary, saving both time and money. “It is about accessing as much knowledge as possible to make better decisions and to deliver better value to the client,” says Coldwell. Art Winslow, IPD director of Graham Construction, couldn’t agree more. He has been involved in many Graham IPD projects including two of Canada’s largest. He lives and breathes IPD as a result of his hands-on project work, but also as a certified Lean Construction trainer. One of the big time wasters in construction is waiting – for approvals, materials, manpower, and inspections, says Winslow. IPD uses “impeccable planning” for common scenarios and not-so-common scenarios. Every project milestone is broken down into a series of clearly defined handoffs; even procurement is planned in support of the project outcomes. If the drywaller, for example, needs his material on a given day, what is discussed and documented is: when it needs to be purchased, when it needs to be shipped, where it will be stored, when it needs to be transported to the site, and what will be done with it once on site. All this is organized in advance so there is no waiting when the work needs to be done. A regular schedule will outline what is to be done, who does it and when. With IPD, the schedule or “last planner system” also describes, in the finest detail, exactly how it is going to be done. The plan is a series of commitments posted on a planning wall in what is referred to as a “big room”. This is where regular and structured meetings are held with all


FEATURE | IPD

parties to go over project particulars and revisit the schedule’s viability. When parties can concentrate on innovative ideas to move the project along efficiently, “that is when the magic happens,” he adds. Recently, at a big room meeting relative to the creation of an academic centre at St. Jerome’s University in Waterloo, Winslow and his team walked the client through the project using 3D software. Right then and there, because the owner was present, a decision was made to right size the room by five feet (saving volume and dollars). If the owner had been excluded from this input process – which is typical in traditional construction delivery models - approval for that decision could have taken weeks. The challenge of learning how to use IPD is not lost on Stephanie Roll, vicepresident of Executive Millwork Inc. She is embarking on her first IPD project and appreciates that there is more upfront work than is required with traditional delivery models. “Millwork is typically one of the last trades on a job, at the same time as carpets are laid and the painting is done,” she explains, adding but with IPD they are at the table, with the rest of the crew, from the beginning. “It is a sophisticated process and a cultural shift; the biggest challenge is to understand and trust it. With a true IPD project you are all interdependent on one another working toward continuous improvement.” And it is not for everyone, says Coldwell. IPD is better suited to complex projects with aggressive schedules, multiple stakeholders, complicated issues (contaminated lands, for example), and tight budgets. “It may not be necessary for a warehouse in the middle of a field,” he states, adding if the owner is not fully committed, the project is likely to fail. “If you are an owner who knows the cost of everything and the value of nothing, it is unlikely to work.” Indeed, it is also common to have some skepticism about any new operating system. Questions from the uninitiated abound: What is wrong with the old paradigm? Won’t all that upfront work actually cost my company more?

Art Winslow, IPD director of Graham Construction (left) explains that IPD uses “impeccable planning” for common scenarios and not-so-common scenarios reducing wait times.

What about my authority on the job? Will I make less money on an IPD job? But the metrics speak for themselves, says Winslow. On a recently-completed hospital project, the team went “from zero to piles in the ground” in one year when, typically, it would’ve taken two. To get involved early on is to generate a better understanding of the project and develop a more seamless process. The result of more efficiency is reduced cost; the team knows this and is incentivized throughout the project to be innovative. If you want to learn more about this new model - Winslow is saying owners are moving from being curious about it to being keen to use it - watch for upcoming seminars which will be spon-

sored by the Canadian Construction Association’s Lean Construction Institute of Canada. In the future the Calgary Construction Association will also feature a Lean Construction chapter. Both Winslow and Coldwell challenge the industry to embrace IPD – a move which, they say, will make it more robust, professional, and pleasurable to be a part of. “For the last 10 years, we’ve been whining and snivelling saying our industry is broken and we’re dysfunctional, but few have done anything about it,” says Coldwell. “If IPD resonates with you, stop the navel gazing and just get out and do it. When you do, you will reap the rewards.” n

Your National Voice The Canadian Construction Association

Anibal Valente, CCA-National, Board Chair

From left to right: CCA-National First National Vice Chair Gil Brulotte, CCA-National Board Chair Anibal Valente, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, and CCA-National President Michael Atkinson.

All members of the Calgary Construction Association reported to CCA-National automatically become members of the Canadian Construction Association. CCA-National is your national voice and your advocate on the national scene. The Calgary Construction Association is a CCA-National partner association and as such participates and contributes to the formation of national industry policies and positions through its involvement and partnership with CCA-National. Here then are a few of CCA-National’s recent accomplishments and current priorities: CCA-National Federal Election 2015 website CCA-National’s Federal Election 2015 website went live August 5, 2015. It contained the results of CCA-National’s one-onone interviews with the leaders of the major federal political parties on issues of concern to the construction industry nationally. The topics covered include infrastructure investment

and labour supply and training. The website also included a tool that permitted CCA-National members to enter their postal code and write directly to the candidates in their ridings. Any announcements of interest to the construction industry made during the campaign were also posted to the site. Visit www.cca-acc.com/en/information/election-2015 to review the campaign. New Lean Construction Institute of Canada (LCI-Canada) established CCA-National has established the new Lean Construction Institute of Canada (LCI-C) with a number of industry practitioners as a CCA-National Special Committee similar in structure and operation to the Canadian Design-Build Institute (CDBI). This has been done with the support and acknowledgement of the flagship Lean Construction Institute (LCI) in the United States. In addition, CCA-National is closely work-

ing with the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America, which runs its own Lean Construction Education Program and a new Lean Construction Certification Program, to utilize as much of that material in Canada as is appropriate. CCA-National hosting quality of design documents sessions across Canada CCA-National is currently hosting a series of regional workshops with partner associations to raise the awareness of the impact of poor design and to seek feedback on the causes and potential solutions. To date workshops have been conducted Prince George, Vancouver, Ottawa, and Saskatoon. Several more will be conducted fall 2015. CCA-National is expected to prepare a summary of its findings and recommendations in this area for the CCA-National Annual Conference in March 2016. Federal government and e-procurement CCA-National has been working with Defence Construction Canada (DCC) to ensure that DCC’s new e-procurement system that it plans to begin using soon on its construction contracts, meets industry expectations. DCC, with CCA-National’s assistance, held a training webinar, demonstration, and trial bid closing with six volunteer firms/bidders. National industry ethics course CCA-National is working with BuildForce Canada to develop a national construction industry ethics course. BuildForce Canada has a functioning Construction E-Learning Centre and

Teasdale Building Company Inc. Calgary’s Multi-Family & Commercial Wood Frame Specialists KEVIN TEASDALE President

has operated an e-learning facility for its own courses since 2005. This will allow for the delivery of the course or certain aspects of the course both remotely and in person. There is interest within CCA-National to make this new course a mandatory one for all applicants under the Gold Seal Certification program. Supporting apprenticeship training CCA-National has long held that meaningful tax incentives are more effective in increasing construction employer engagement in apprenticeship than contract quotas or contract conditions, especially in the case of small businesses, which constitute over 99 per cent of the firms active in the construction industry according to Statistics Canada. As a result CCANational has been calling for enhancements to the current federal Apprenticeship Job Creation Tax Credit. Gold Seal Program enters new era With the expiry of the grandfathering and senior practitioner categories, the Gold Seal Certification Program is entering a new phase in its evolution. The only way to become Gold Seal certified going forward is to successfully challenge a National Gold Seal examination in the particular designation and discipline in which certification is being sought. Recently, the CCA-National Board of Directors renewed its commitment and support for the program. The National Gold Seal Committee, responsible for oversight of the program, was made a standing committee earlier this year, which, among other things, means that CCA-National has confirmed that the Gold Seal Certification Program is an on-going core initiative of the association. Payment and cash flow issues Given the increasing attention being given to payment and cash flow issues within the construction industry not just in Ontario with its current expert review of the Ontario Lien Act, but right across the country, CCA-National is devoting its entire 2015 Industry Summit to payment and cash flow issues and potential solutions. Aboriginal engagement best practices guide in the works CCA-National is working with the Aboriginal Human Resources Council to develop a best practices guide for contractors on engaging the Aboriginal community. Updated trade contractor guide expected this fall The CCA-National Trade Contractors Council is in the process of updating its 1986 publication entitled Design Responsibility and the Trade Contractor. It has decided that rather than issue it as a separate publication, it be incorporated into an updated version of the council’s A Trade Contractor’s Guide and Checklist to Construction Contracts from 2011. The council hopes to have a final draft for endorsement for the board meeting in fall 2015. n

Know Your Role

The duties of an obligee/trustee owed to claimants under labour and material payment bonds By Shaun W. Hohman, associate, Rose LLP A recent decision from the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta provides clear direction as to whether an obligee (and trustee) under a labour and material payment bond (an “L&M Bond”) owes a duty to provide notice of the existence of such a bond to a subcontractor working at the project. In Valard Construction Ltd v Bird Construction Company, 2015 ABQB 141, the court ruled that the duties of the obligee/trustee did not extend so far as to require it to inform potential claimants of the existence of an L&M Bond at given project; however, the obligee/trustee is required to provide information related to an L&M Bond if such information is requested by a potential claimant. Facts and issue Bird Construction Company (“Bird”), the general contractor, entered into a subcontract with Langford Electric Ltd. (“Langford”), an electric subcontractor, which required Langford to obtain an

L&M Bond for the work it was to provide Bird at the Suncor Energy MEM 2 Bay Shop Expansion, located in Fort McMurray, Alberta. The bond was a standard CCDC version L&M Bond. Under the bond, Bird was the appointed obligee and trustee and Langford was the principal. Valard Construction Ltd. (“Valard”) entered into a sub-subcontract with Langford to complete a portion of the electrical work, but Valard was not paid for all the services that it provided to Langford (and later received default judgment from Langford in the amount of $660,000.17). Valard also made a claim under the bond. However, that claim was denied by the surety on the basis that Valard had not made its claim within the time requirements imposed by the bond. In the face of this, and because Valard had no knowledge of the existence of the bond until after the notice period had expired, Valard claimed damages directly against Bird (with whom it had no

contractual relationship) for an alleged breach of the fiduciary duties that Bird owed Valard based upon the wording of the bond. Specifically, the bond included trust language which stated that the obligee was to act as a trustee for all potential claimants under the bond. Valard further alleged that Bird’s fiduciary duties to inform it of the existence of the bond was triggered when Bird learned of difficulties that were encountered at the project by Valard. It is worth noting that Bird provided a copy of the bond to Valard immediately upon request, although after the 120-day notice period prescribed in the bond had expired. A mini-trial was ultimately held to determine the sole issue of whether Bird owed any fiduciary duties to Valard, in its role as trustee under the bond, to inform it of the existence of the bond prior to Valard making inquiries to Bird. Analysis Relying upon a precedent set 45 years ago by the York County Court of Ontar-

io1, and more recently affirmed by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice2, the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench ruled that Bird, in its capacity as trustee under the bond, owed no fiduciary duty to Valard to inform it of the existence of the bond at the project. The court found that Bird acted honestly in dealing with Valard and that Bird had no knowledge of the fact that Valard had not been paid by Langford for work it performed at the project (or the financial difficulties of Langford) until Valard requested information regarding the bond. With respect to the trust language that is included in the bond, the court ruled at paragraph 80 of the decision: “I conclude that the sole purpose of the trust wording in the Bond is to address difficulties that the identities of the claimants cannot be ascertained at the time the bond is entered into, and that the third party beneficiary rule would otherwise prevent a claimant from suing the surety.3

While noting that Bird could have “posted the bond on the bulletin board in Bird’s office trailer on the site, distributed copies of the bond, or required Langford to take reasonable steps to notify its subcontractors and material suppliers of the existence of the bond”, the court stated that Bird was not required to provide such notice. Placing the burden squarely back upon the shoulders of Valard, the court questioned why a large sophisticated entity such as Valard did not have a mandatory protocol in place to request bond information at the outset of a project. It noted that nothing had prevented Valard from making inquiries to Bird about the existence of the bond and that, in fact, as soon as such inquiries were actually made, a copy of the bond was immediately provided. Given that, the court found Bird had acted properly at all material times with respect to its role as trustee under the bond, and that no further action was

required of it with respect to Valard. Interestingly, the issue before the court was not whether relief from forfeiture was available to Valard based upon the surety’s denial of Valard’s claim for failing to provide timely notice to the surety. This would have been a more common approach to take. However, Valard’s claim in this regard was apparently dropped when it learned that the surety might be able to establish prejudice with respect to the late notice. Whether prejudice could have actually been established by the surety is uncertain.

The Eau Claire Tower was designed to seamlessly integrate into the city of Calgary. Everything from the location to the design is meant to build on the rejuvenated Eau Claire market area of shops, offices, and residential units. At the heart the business district, it was important the building was connected to all the great features of the area, including shops, restaurants, transportation options, and greenspace. Eau Claire Tower is progressing on schedule, with shell completion expected for early 2016 and tenant build-out work already beginning in late 2015. Developed by Oxford Properties, the 23-storey building is the third and final tower of the three-million-square-foot Centennial Place office development initiative in the city’s business district, offering a threelevel underground parkade. Located between Second and Third Avenue, southwest along Fourth Street, Eau Claire Tower is situated within a block of other Oxford Properties projects, including Devon Tower, Ernst & Young Tower, and Centennial Place, which is connected to Eau Claire Tower by the plus-15 system walkway system. The $300-million project is targeting LEED Gold certification, and offers tenants on-site amenities. The building is also in close proximity to neighbourhood attractions and conveniences, including the Bow River pathway, the Eau Claire YMCA, Prince’s Island, the Peace Bridge, and Sheraton Suites Eau Claire. “Eau Claire Tower has views of the mountains and the Bow River, and it is located close to restaurants and retail stores,” says Mark Oord, director of Construction in B.C. and Alberta for Oxford Properties. “Oxford’s corporate policy is to construct sustainable buildings, so we’re pushing for LEED Gold with this tower. Because we continue to own and manage our buildings, it is important that they are green and energy efficient for lower operating costs, while maintaining tenant comfort.”

The building’s main tenant will be MEG Energy Corp., who will relocate its head office from Centennial Place to Eau Claire Tower. The company will occupy 11 floors in the tower, which will be more than double the space currently held by MEG Energy. The design of core space includes a fitness centre and cafeteria for MEG Energy staff, as well as internal staircases connecting the floors occupied by the energy company. Eau Claire Tower offers larger floor plates, at 27,500 square feet, in response to tenants’ preferences for expansive floors and flexible, open-concept office design. In addition to the lobby, there are ground floor retail spaces, and an outdoor plaza with public seating to the east of the building. There is also a fitness centre and conference rooms at the lower levels for tenants to use. Green features include priority parking spaces for electric cars, along with charging stations, as well as separate bicycle parking with shower and locker facilities for commuting cyclists. The building’s glass and metal curtain wall features light reflective glass with a clear low-E coating. A custom ceramic frit application on windows enhances the aesthetics of the building and also helps with shading. Eau Claire Tower will have a green roof and a water conservation system for landscaping irrigation. All rain water from the property is directed to a 150-cubic-metre tank. The stored water is then treated by a UV filter system prior to use for irrigation on the property. The treated water is pumped to various different areas of the property that will require

In designing the mechanical system for the Eau Claire Tower, the engineering team looked at heating and cooling systems that would accommodate nine-foot ceilings for each floor, rather than the typical eight feet, six inch ceiling heights of most office towers. irrigation, including the planters on the third-floor terrace. Located at the site of a former parking lot, Eau Claire Tower is situated in a silt channel that runs through downtown Calgary. Excavation and foundation work required effective water control barriers. A secant piled wall system was constructed for a rigid and waterproof retaining wall, and a Grace Preprufe SCS waterproofing system was installed. “Because the building was founded in a transitional silt layer, specialized excavation procedures were implemented, so as not to disturb the silt subgrade and avoid the need for any over-excavation or use of a dewatering system,” says Derek Thiessen, construction manager for EllisDon Construction. “Grace

Preprufe SCS is more expensive, but it’s a more robust water proofing system than traditional methods. We also used Krystol Internal Membrane in the shotcrete application for an enhanced waterproofing solution.” In designing the mechanical system for the Eau Claire Tower, the engineering team looked at heating and cooling systems that would accommodate ninefoot ceilings for each floor, rather than the typical eight feet, six inch ceiling heights of most office towers. “The client wanted to maintain a specific number of floor plates and achieve nine-foot ceilings, but the building had a maximum height restriction, so it couldn’t be constructed any taller,” says Eric Stevens, project engineer and associate for MMM Group. “To achieve

these ceiling heights, we had to go with a system that was different from a more traditional VAV system. We designed a hybrid VAV, chilled beam system, which reduced the amount of space in the ceiling by six inches to give us the height that we needed.” The building has a perimeter radiation heating system and chilled beams in the ceiling, measuring approximately four feet long and 12 inches high. The system has both an air connection and a chilled water piping connection, which takes advantage of the natural buoyancy of air. The reduction in fan power outweighs any increase in pump energy required to maintain the space temperature, achieving a system that is more energy efficient. The chilled beam system will be commissioned with the base building, with tenant contractors locating diffusers and installing ductwork downstream of the VAV. As a smart building, Eau Claire Tower will have automated systems and Power over Ethernet technology for controls. “In lieu of installing power circuits to a transformer, Power over Ethernet is a more streamlined approach,” says Stevens. “It’s easier to install network cables than power circuiting and transformers, so you have an improved schedule in constructing the base building control system.” The building also has a smart lighting control system featuring an Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) backbone. Tenants will build-out on this centralized backbone and can customize their lighting controls to suit their needs. The building’s electrical system harvests natural light and has LED fixtures for improved energy efficiency. Floor-by-floor commissioning will begin by end of summer 2015, and then fixtures will be palletized on each floor, ready for each tenant to come in and built out the office space.

“The really interesting aspect of Eau Claire [Tower] is its centralized active network that’s supplying all of the building,” says Rene LaPerle, project manager for Western Electrical Management Ltd. “Since the building was designed, about a year and eight months ago, there have been some cutting edge technological advances. For that reason the building has some noticeable technological changes, such as LED lighting fixtures. We have experience with other smart buildings, so were able to adapt very well and include these changes with the original design.”

By the end of summer 2015, the penthouse structural steel will be complete and the building’s curtain wall will be installed. Podium finishings, as well as finishings of washrooms and common spaces, are also on track for completion. By fall, 85 per cent of the mechanical system will be installed, and the electrical and fire alarm systems will be verified. Eau Claire Tower will be complete and ready for tenants to start their fit outs by late 2015, with the first occupants open for business by the second quarter of 2016. The building is a welcome addition to Calgary’s business district and exemplifies a modern, ur-

ban development that considers all of the attributes of the surrounding environment. “With Eau Claire [Tower] being located just south of the Bow River, it was important that we considered bicyclists and joggers,” says Oord. “That’s why the tower offers customers onsite secure bicycle storage with change room, locker, and shower facilities. The tower is connected to Calgary’s Plus 15 network for year-round access to dozens of offices, restaurants and shops. It is also served by major Calgary Transit bus routes. Together, these features help Eau Claire Tower complement all Calgary has to offer – while giving tenants a place to work and thrive.” n

Steps to Success Become Gold Seal Certified

By Lisa Fattori New initiatives are making it easier than ever for construction professionals to apply for and follow-up their application for Gold Seal certification, a Canadian Construction Association-led program that certifies individuals who meet the national standard for construction management excellence. Enhanced online capabilities for processing applications and disseminating information, new bundled course offerings, and access to the Canada-Alberta Job Grant (CAJG) make the Gold Seal program both convenient and cost-effective. Construction companies have the opportunity to demonstrate to clients their expertise as Gold Seal employers, and employees who earn Gold Seal certification improve their career opportunities and marketability in their chosen fields. Introduced in 1991, the Gold Seal certification program certifies the education, experience, and competency of construction management professionals, including project managers, superintendents, estimators, owner’s project managers, and safety coordinators. Administered by the Canadian Construction Association, in partnership with its member local construction associations, the program has close to 10,000 Gold Seal Certified

(GSC) professionals. To challenge the Gold Seal exam, an individual must have a minimum of five years industry experience in a specific destination and a minimum of 25 education and training credits. Construction Estimator Certified are automatically qualified to challenge the Gold Seal exam. Those with Professional Quantity Surveyor designation receive automatic Gold Seal certification as GSC professionals. They pay the same application fee of $500, plus applicable taxes, but do not have to write the exam. As of January 1, 2014, the Senior Practitioner stream was eliminated and, since then, everyone is required to challenge the appropriate Gold Seal exam. The program’s website has also been revamped to be more user friendly and to enable Gold Seal candidates to apply online. Recently, the ability of Gold Seal staff to track and follow up with incomplete applications has been extended to member construction associations, who can now perform the same service at the local level. “Since we’ve gone to an online application process, we’re able to capture email addresses of applicants,” says Stephanie Wallace, manager of the Gold Seal certification program. “These applicants receive a reminder every 30 days to complete

and submit their Gold Seal applications. Since early spring, local associations have had access to that list, and they can follow up and help people to complete their applications.” In 2013, an online study portal was added to the Gold Seal application portal to help Gold Seal candidates prepare for their certification exams. The portal provides profiles of different construction disciplines, related exam specifications, and practice tests. The portal currently offers study tests for all designations in the general contracting discipline, and the construction safety coordinator designation, with road building and heavy construction, and owner’s project manager expected to be online by this fall. Eventually, all designations for all disciplines will have practice tests available in the study portal. Interns are also now able to log back into their applications to update their project list, industry experience, and education. The Canadian Construction Association recently launched an informative video to walk Gold Seal interns and future candidates through the application process.

Interns are also now able to log back into their applications to update their project list, industry experience, and education. Gold Seal facilitators, and a heightened awareness about the benefits of Gold Seal certification are attracting a greater number of construction management professionals to the program. “The average age of our applicants is mid 40s; therefore, part of our focus is the young executive groups within the local associations,” says Wallace. “ We are also considering offering something for stu-

dents in third and fourth year industryrelated degree and diploma programs, such as technicians, technologists, and engineers. We want them to be aware of the program and to get certified. We’re seeing a lot more uptake from the younger generation, who are very excited about continuing education. The younger crowd is more aggressive about change and becoming more efficient.”

Born out of the federal government’s 2013 Economic Action Plan, the CAJG helps employers to supplement their employees’ training, including the education requirements for Gold Seal certification. Under the CAJG, employers cover one third of training costs (tuition, books), and the government contributes the other two thirds. The total grant provides up to $15,000 per person, with a cap of $300,000 per employer, per year. Training programs are required to be a minimum of 24 hours and a maximum of 52 weeks. As an employer-driven program, the Job Grant can be applied to a number of training scenarios, including full-time, part-time, seminar or workshop-type training, by a third party. In response to the need for more flexible course offerings, the Calgary Construction Association (CCA) has recently introduced bundled, smaller courses in a series to deliver the hours necessary to meet Gold Seal requirements, as well as other certified training programs. “It can be difficult for a company to do without an employee who is attending a 30-hour course,” says Debbie Hicks, consultant for the CCA. “If the courses are modularized, it’s more manageable and an employer is much more willing to send employees for training.” This fall, the CCA’s Education Calendar will include construction management-related courses that will be bundled in four- to six-hour modules, with a curriculum that includes Construction Law, Builders’ Lien, Building Information Modelling (BIM), Resolving Construction Disputes, Lean Construction, and Integrated Project Delivery. “The fall Education Calendar will help companies to identify courses available for completing their Gold Seal Education Credits,” says Hicks. “With a bit of a slowdown in the industry right now, we’re telling companies that now is the time to train. Today, more than ever, construction companies have to demonstrate their expertise, and the best way to show your talents is to have Gold Seal certified employees.” n

Man in Motion

Bob Steele, former CCA chair, reflects on work, play, and everything in between By Colleen Biondi It was the summer of 1946, and 15-yearold Bob Steele got a job working for Fred Mannix Company on the Barrier Dam in Kananaskis, Alberta. The following summer, he was driving truck at a strip mining location in Michel, British Columbia, and by 1950, he was running a cement crew for Bennett and White in Calgary (which would eventually become Stuart Olson Construction). In 1951, he was promoted to the office, where he did layout for concrete projects, and although he thoroughly enjoyed these jobs, little did he know they would launch him into an almost 50-year career with the construction industry. Steele considered other options early on. In fact, he took a one-year diploma program in petroleum engineering at Mount Royal College (now Mount Royal University) after high school. “But I had fallen in love with construction,” says Steele. So after graduating from a two-year diploma program in construction technology from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) in 1962, he started working fulltime in the industry and never looked back.

The path ahead Even as a child, Steele showed the kind of initiative and determination which would serve him well throughout his life. It was wartime, and money was scarce in his family’s household. Wanting to contribute to the family coffers (Bob’s dad worked as a manager for Acklands-Grainger and his mom was a homemaker), he cut grass every summer and shovelled snow every winter for cash. That dedication and focus transferred to other aspects of his young life as well. In the Boy Scout movement, for example, Steele progressed to the level of


PROFILE | Past Chair : Bob Steele During his younger years Steele was an all-star quarterback at Crescent Heights High School in 1950, and was talented enough to eventually try out for the Calgary Stampeders.

Even as a child, Steele showed the kind of initiative and determination which would serve him well throughout his life. King’s Scout, the top grade and honour in Scout training, was a selected candidate for the World Jamboree in Paris in 1947, and earned many other accolades, including a war badge for 100 hours of community service. But it was not all work and no play for the young man. Despite doing exceptionally well academically in junior high school, he totally, as he describes it, “bombed out” in high school at Crescent Heights High School. Instead of worrying about marks, he was investing time in junior hockey, football (was talented enough to eventually try out for the Calgary Stampeders), and girls. “I was having a good time,” he concedes. But once he found his focus again, Steele continued his journey into his desired industry. Steele’s first full-time job was with PCL Construction, where he worked on layout, surveying and cost reports in the field office. His first big project was the Spruce Cliff apartments in southwest Calgary. Before long he accepted an offer to join McCready and Campbell (which would become J.K. Campbell and Associates), a company that provided sub-contractor services such as roofing, sheet metal and insula-

tion. He became an associate with the company and worked there – as branch manager – for 27 years. Two big projects he was responsible for were Winnipeg City Hall’s sheet metal and the insulation for a nuclear reactor plant in Hanford, Washington, the last project for the company in the United States. “They didn’t want Canadian contractors taking away work from the locals,” he explains. On breaks from work, Steele and his family spent time holidaying at Mara Lake and the Shuswap. It was while travelling there and golfing periodically at Salmon Arm’s nine-hole golf course that an idea percolated. “I wanted to do something with land,” he recalls. “But I didn’t want to be a farmer.” So Steele, a casual golfer who knew virtually nothing about golf course development, talked to the owner and said, “If you are ever interested in selling this place, let me know.” As fate would have it, he got that call in 1979. Steele left J.K. Campbell and Associates and bought the golf course with a plan to develop it into an 18-hole venue. He hired well-known and respected golf course developer Les Furber to design and layout the expansion. Even

though Steele sold the course back to the members in 1983, he is proud of his role in making Salmon Arm Golf Club a goto destination for golf. “It is a very popular course,” muses Steele. In 1987, Bob moved to Harvie Heights (between Canmore and the Banff Park gates) to retire, but that plan got delayed by an industry that wasn’t ready to let him go. After a short time, he was approached by Canadian Pacific (CP) Hotels to oversee the construction of the new staff residence and the expansion of the Banff Springs Hotel as well as the clubhouse at the Banff Springs Golf Club. This mega-project was in preparation for the 1988 Olympics, which would take place in the Calgary area. Steele thought that job would be a one-off, but after its successful completion, he was asked to be the project manager for the expansion and renovation of Chateau Lake Louise, Jasper Park Lodge and the Hotel MacDonald in Edmonton. Where we’ve been Upon reflection, Steele enjoyed the diversity of his career, in particular the constant learning and the technological innovations associated with the conThe CONSTRUCTOR 2016

As Canadian Pacific Hotels & Resorts’ project manager, Steele oversaw the expansion and renovation of the Hotel MacDonald in Edmonton. Steele is seen here at the Hotel MacDonald’s re-opening in 1991, which included notable guests such as former Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed.

struction industry. He also travelled regularly – to places like Japan and the British Isles – visiting industry partners, researching possible construction projects, and examining other unique sites for ideas and styles. Steele retired in 1991 and continues to enjoy a variable and ever-learning lifestyle. He plays golf regularly in the summertime at the Canmore Golf and Curling Club. He also enjoys a week of golf at Fairmont with friends each fall. Steele and his wife Marleen appreciate the annual Christmas gift certificates they receive from their adult kids to play golf at Silvertip and Stewart Creek golf courses in Canmore. He also golfs every morning in the winter, thanks to a snowbird lifestyle in an RV park near El Centro, California, and cools off playing pool volleyball afterwards. Steele keeps himself busy around the house as well. Last year he added a balcony and a patio door to a second-floor bedroom in his home, which had a humble beginning; Steele and his father built the original structure back in 1951 as a 480-squarefoot ski cabin. “My dad was an expert at assigning the grunt work tasks to me,” he says. “I hand mixed over 90 wheelbarrows full of concrete for the footing of our rundle stone, wood-burning fireplace, which is still in use today.” After many additions and renovations over the years (with Steele as chief architect, contractor, and builder, in large part), it is now a 1,400-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bathroom

house with hardwood flooring, new plumbing, and roofing. The old outhouse is now a tool shed; the double garage is now a workshop. ”I am happiest when I undertake a project and bring it to completion. My family and friends refer to me as Bob the Builder.” A particular claim to fame for Steele was the restoration of a 1930 cream-coloured Marmon with red-wire wheels, which he subsequently donated to Gasoline Alley at Heritage Park. Steele loved the reconditioning work; he was passionate and committed to making everything perfect. But he will not likely embark on another car restoration anytime soon. “It took 1,600 hours to finish the job. I think my wife would walk out if I started another one.” But truly, his focus these days is on his family. Steele has been married to Marleen, his second wife, for 25 years (he and his first wife and high school sweetheart, Dolores, were married for 21 years before she died). He has one son, two daughters (a third daughter died in 2003), two step-daughters, seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. He’d like to spend more time with the kids, but they all live in different cities. However, he and Marleen do what they can and manage to connect through Facebook, visits, special sporting activities, and events. Steele’s health has been remarkably good, with one exception. About 10 years ago he started to experience chest pains. The doctors conducted a full battery of tests and located an arte-

rial blockage. He had double bypass surgery in 2006 at Foothills Hospital. Today he has resumed a full life. “I am all patched up. I don’t have any problems.” He and Marleen are frequent travellers. Over and above their snowbird lifestyle, they have been to Australia, New Zealand, the Caribbean, England, Scotland, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Italy, Peru, and Thailand, as well as two cruises to South America. Due to Steele’s age, many of his contemporaries have gone to the “Happy Hunting Grounds,” but he has maintained friendships with three friends from his Boy Scout days. This year, he attended the 100-year anniversary of Crescent Heights High School and met up with five students from his graduating class. Otherwise, Steele has made new friends in his mountain community. Steele has been generous with many charities over the years, opting to give some monies to many good causes rather than contribute solely to one or two. He chooses to donate in memory of friends who have passed on and to organizations that do large-scale international work, like the Canadian Red Cross. Working in and for the construction industry was a distinct privilege for Steele. He recounts his role as president of the CCA in 1973 was a particular honour. “My goal was to help out the members as much as possible,” he explains, adding his focus was addressing any new regulations and understanding the impact of those regulations on in-

dustry business. During Steele’s subsequent stint as president of the Alberta Construction Association (ACA), he helped introduce safety programming to the sector and served on the advisory board for the two-year Construction Technology program at SAIT. It is clear that Steele’s contribution to the construction industry has been a significant one. And it is equally clear this man is not finished with making an impact wherever he goes. In fact, when asked about what he considers his legacy to be, he is perplexed. “Well, I haven’t really thought about that. I guess I will figure that out in the next 10 years,” he muses. n

FEATURE | 2015 Construction Career Expo

Getting EXPOsed to the Construction World Students get a hands-on experience at the 2015 Construction Career Expo

By Craig Palmer

This bird’s-eye view provides a glimpse of the 2,600 brightly-coloured students as they navigate the maze of construction career opportunities.

The ninth annual Construction Career Expo was another record-breaking year, as more than 2,600 students entered Hall B of Stampede Park’s BMO Centre on April 22, 2015. As buses arrived at the BMO Centre, volunteers greeted the grade 7-12 students who came from 56 schools from Calgary and the surrounding area as far away as Claresholm. After a short orientation, they were guided into the hall where they were given a pair of safety glasses, a drawstring backpack to hold their loot from the exhibitor booths, and their choice of a green, blue, pink, or yellow shirt. Every shirt included the phrase “I am” with each colour reading “skilled”, “driven”, “determined”, and “dedicated” respectively, detailing the qualities it takes to be successful in the trades.

172

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

Soon the hall was a sea of vibrant colours as the mass of students excitedly hopped from booth to booth. This year the expo hosted an impressive 50 exhibitors – 33 of which provided engaging, hands-on activities for the students. To ensure students had a comprehensive look at the variety of trades available in the industry, the CCA worked in partnership with all the affiliated construction industry trade associations. Additionally, groups such as SAIT Polytechnic, Careers: The Next Generation, and Merit Contractors Association also participated by imparting their wealth of information on how to develop their careers in the construction industry. There was no shortage of activities for students to get a hands-on feel for the trades as they learned to use a variety of

power tools, layered brick and mortar, and constructed small wooden boxes – an activity resembling the art of cabinetry. Booths showing the ins and outs of electrical, plumbing, glazing, siding, flooring, painting, cribbing, concrete finishing, and roofing all provided excellent interactive exhibits. Virtual reality (VR) exhibits had an increased presence this year, including the return of SAIT’s virtual spray painting exhibit that showed students how to paint a wall with an even coat and no waste. A VR welding booth also caught the attention of many students as they put on a mock-welders mask fitted with a screen and virtually joined two pieces of metal. The system would then give them a score based on their speed and accuracy. DIRTT Environmental Solutions rounded out the VR experience as

they fitted students with an Oculus Rift – a cutting-edge VR headset designed for video games. With the headset, students were able to navigate and interact with a virtual office space. The ever-popular doghouse project returned again this year, which was sponsored by the Calgary General Contractors Association. Five doghouses were constructed throughout the day, allowing students to learn about carpentry as they connected all the walls, nailed down the siding, and attached shingles to the roofs. The doghouses were then donated to five schools to be used in various fundraisers. Standard School was one such recipient, and was able to auction off the doghouse for $950 which will assist in building a new school. A quiz on the construction industry was handed out to students as they entered the expo, which encouraged them to engage exhibitors in conversation about careers in the industry. The questions asked ranged from what personal protective equipment is mandatory, to apprenticeship requirements, to opportunities beyond journeyperson status. If they correctly answered all questions, they were eligible for a draw to win an iPad mini.

Students were also encouraged to follow the CCA’s Twitter account @CCAbuildsYYC and tweet pictures of themselves at the expo for a chance to win one of two iPad Minis. There was plenty of engagement for this contest and there were many creative pictures of students interacting with exhibits at the expo, and even posing with their new shirts back in their classrooms. Students weren’t the only ones getting involved in the activities, however, as many teachers were just as excited to try their hands at the trades and don the brightly coloured shirts. “Thank you for putting on such an excellent event,” says Tam Godfrey, a construction teacher at Queen Elizabeth High School. “It is a great opportunity for our students to meet real tradespeople and hopefully get some ideas for their futures.” Godfey is one of many teachers who bring their students to the expo each year. Michael Koehler, a teacher from Lord Beaverbrook High School, and his students also have been in attendance since the inaugural year. “I want to thank you and the CCA for the great support I get as a teacher,” says Koehler. “The CCA is making a part of this business easier by helping us do what we know is good and right for kids.” This event was made possible not only by the generous donations of many companies in the industry, but also of the numerous volunteers who committed their time and effort to help out for the day. About 50 volunteers came to set up, assist throughout the day, and stayed until the event was all wrapped up. And, of course, thank you to the nearly 200 company representatives who manned the booths and gave these students an experience of a lifetime. The CCA is already looking forward to the next Construction Career Expo where they hope to continue to inspire the next generation of dedicated, determined, driven, and skilled workers to choose a career in construction. n

ers could compete in the “zen golfing” challenge, where they would take a practice putt from five feet away to get a feel for the shot, and were then blindfolded and tasked to make the same putt with nothing but guidance from their team and mere intuition. Surprisingly, about half the players made the shot – some even doing better blindfolded. Those who sunk the ball were put into a draw to win a top-of-the-line mountain bike, which went to Rob Pillipow of Davidson Enman Lumber. Pillipow generously donated the bike back to the association, which was then offered as a prize in the Women in Construction golf tournament. A total of $805 for the CCA Education Fund was raised at the YEP challenge. During dinner, the CCA staff sold 50/50 tickets for $20 per arm length, or $30 per wingspan, a wildly popular option. The raffle itself raised $610, though that number doubled as Kevin Pound from Concept Group graciously donated his $610 in winnings back to the CCA Education Fund. In total, nearly $700,000 has been raised through this tournament since it began in 2004. These funds manifest themselves in many ways by providing a variety of scholarships and investing in new and unique educational initiatives. In 2015, the CCA provided 46 scholarships for a total of $66,000. These scholarships include 25 $1,000 scholarships distributed through Alberta Apprenticeship & Industry Training, and eight $2,000 scholarships for CCA member employees and their families to pursue trades training.

Art in the City By Carly Peters

Patti Pon, president and CEO of Calgary Arts Development stands beside a simple example of public art created through the City of Calgary’s Public Art Program. More than 140 utility boxes have been painted since 2010, which invite viewers to think about their relationship to that space.

How does one “see” their city? Is it through observing the physical world the geography, the buildings, the people? Or is it something less tangible; something that’s inherent when you wander the city’s streets? Public art, whether it’s the palpable structure of a sculpture, the visual engagement of a mural, or even an animated Folk Fest performer on the LRT, invites people to engage with, use, and think about their environment in a way they may not have before. Calgary’s public art infuses citizens with the ability to connect with their own city, and fellow residents like no other urban centre in the country thanks to a forward thinking civic culture department, a boisterous arts development agency, and a public eager to continue the dialogue that public art starts. According to the Calgary Arts Development’s Arts In Action YYC report, 87 per cent of Calgarians believe that arts help bring people together and enable people to connect to each other, while 82 per cent of Calgarians believe that a strong arts and culture scene is key to creating a vibrant, safe, and prosperous city.

“There’s something in Calgary’s DNA that fosters art,” states Patti Pon, president and CEO of Calgary Arts Development, pointing to examples such as Decidedly Jazz Danceworks, Canada’s only professional jazz company, or Beakerhead, a citywide spectacle where arts, engineering, and science smash together, as well as structural elements such as Wonderland at The Bow or the Peace Bridge. “None of these things could happen anywhere else but in Calgary. And not everyone likes each piece of art; they’re not supposed to. Calgary is made up of people who all have likes and dislikes and they are all different, and that creates this great dialogue that makes us look at our city in different ways.” Pon says Calgary’s public art encourages people to “bump” in to their surroundings and garner a response - good or bad. “For example, the design that appears on the painted utility box in Chinatown is there, in that place, intentionally. It’s there to invite you to think about your relationship to that space and it invites you to consider the many ways you can express yourself in that relationship,” she explains.

Painted utility boxes are just a small example of The City of Calgary’s mandate to impact the city’s urban landscape and transform the way Calgarians see, think, and experience the city around them. Since City Council approved the Public Art Policy in 2004, the Public Art Program has completed more than 50 original works of public art (placed in 13 of the 14 wards) and more than 100 utility boxes that add distinct and vibrant artistic character to the city’s public places. In 2014, city council approved changes to the Public Art Policy which will help the Public Art Program to increase public participation, continue to foster local artist involvement, encourage functional art, and adjust the funding model. Now, City of Calgary capital projects over $1 million allocate one per cent of the first $50 million of eligible project costs, and 0.5 per cent of the portion over $50 million to public art, up to a maximum of $4 million per project. “We wanted the city’s built environment to express a sense of place whether it be a building, road, or bridge,” explains Sarah Iley, manager of culture for the City of Calgary. “We also wanted to help people understand their surroundings. That’s why in a lot of cases we’ve chosen dynamic public art pieces rather than something that’s just static.” She points to Brian Tolle’s Outflow, a segment of the city’s stormwater system that has been transformed into a sculpture of an inverted mountain in the newly-developed Parkdale Plaza along the Landscape of Memory. The replica of Mount PeeChee memorializes the glacial origins of the Bow and how it has shaped Calgary over the years. As citizens watch the stormwater travel from the surrounding community through the inverted mountain and into the Bow via an outfall, they are meant to visualize the journey of the river and gain insight into the impact people’s actions have on its health. Together, the elements of the plaza - benches, native and low-mainte-

Brian Tolle’s Outflow, a segment of the city’s stormwater system that has been transformed into a sculpture of an inverted mountain, is meant to highlight the delicate balance between the natural watershed and the built environment, and creates an inviting space for the community and pathway users to stop, pause, and connect.

nance landscaping, low-level lighting, the integrated sculpture, and an upgraded outfall – highlight the delicate balance between the natural watershed and the built environment, and creates an inviting space for the community and pathway users to stop, pause, and connect. Iley states community engagement has become a large part of the public art development process. “We may be art experts, but residents are experts of their community,” she explains, citing Seton Recreational Centre’s proposed public art installment, The Nest, as an example of how residents influence public art. Donald Lipski, whose public art can be seen in places such as New York’s Grand Central Terminal and the Washington D.C. Convention Centre, saw the Seton multi-use, multi-generational rec centre as a nest of sorts - a symbol of community. He proposed a four-piece installation which included large nest made out of acrylic branches, suspended overhead in the nexus of the main floor circulation area, and three flocks of birds flying towards it, each with a new branch to contribute. The imagery of the piece in its entirety will depict community values of industry, teamwork, and common purpose. To ensure the final piece was meaningful and resonated with the people

To ensure Seton Recreational Centre’s proposed public art installment, The Nest, was meaningful to people using the facility, information was gathered from the local community on what species of birds respondents felt should be portrayed in the artwork.

using the Seton recreation facility, Lipski gathered information from the local community via an online survey in February 2015, to gather views on what species of birds respondents felt should be portrayed in the artwork. “There were over 200 plus people sharing their bird stories. Their input will influence how this renowned artist will create this work. The key piece to creating good public art is that the community is engaged,” says Iley, adding the birds that were selected include the Swanson’s Hawk, Great Horned Owl, Great Blue Heron.

Public engagement is also a key component to the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation’s (CMLC) Art in the Public Realm program which seeks to build a legacy of public art through permanent and temporary, curated art installations of local, national, and international significance. Residents were invited to watch as two boom cranes lifted the 23-metre-tall sculpture Bloom, the third permanent CMLC installation, on to St. Patrick’s Island in July 2015. Canadian artist Michel de Broin says the sculpture, which comprises 10 elements (six street lights, three legs, and

a polyhedron), was inspired “by the encounter between the natural landscape of the park and the urban cityscape” and “like the flower, the monumentality of the lights lies in sharp contrast to the delicacy of the stems, filaments, and petals. Devices of attraction, flowers and lights create points of encounter and interaction.” Creating points of “encounter and interaction” is something the CMLC has purposefully endeavoured to do in every dimension of the East Village and Rivers District redevelopment efforts and why permanent public art installations were identified as part of the master plan from the start. “Art defines the character of the community. It’s part of the placemaking objective and sets the tone and establishes a personality,” says Susan Veres, vice-president of marketing and communications for CMLC, pointing to previous East Village art instalments: Promenade, a 24-foot high, four-sided tower with 20 LED panels that display mesmerizing animations of people walking, which acts as a marker of entry to East Village, and the grand tile mosaic wall by Calgary artist Ron Moppett along Riverfront Lane (East Village’s first pedestrian-only street) which not only softens the hard infrastructure edge of the LRT, but is a depiction of Calgary’s genesis, evolution, and future. “It creates a home, and adds compelling piece to your community’s story.”

Canadian artist Michel de Broin says Bloom, which was unveiled in July 2015 on St. Patrick’s Island, was inspired “by the encounter between the natural landscape of the park and the urban cityscape”.

While public art may hold intrinsic value, it also plays a role as an economic generator. Iley cites Travelling Light, the “blue ring” at the 96th Avenue Northeast interchange, as an example. While the commissioned artists, inges idee, were based out of Berlin, the fabrication and installation of Travelling Light was completed entirely by local companies. The project supported the primary fabricator, as well as subcontractors like the steel bending company, electricians, project managers, engineers, and even crane operators. “Eighty per cent of the project’s budget was spent in Calgary,” she states. “The fabrication firm then went on to do projects internationally because of their work on Travelling Light.” Iley points back to Outflow, which utilized Calgary-based Canada Cement Lafarge for the ductal concrete™ to create the natural ridges of the rock, and roger that, two light installations sited on each side of the Tuscany LRT station, fabricated by Calgary’s Highline Electrical Constructors for artist Bill Pechet. Calgary has seen other tangible benefits, like being named one of the top 52 places to visit in 2014 by the News York Times (number 17), because of the city’s reputation for public art.

Art defines the character of the community. It’s part of the placemaking objective and sets the tone and establishes a personality, states Susan Veres, vice-president of marketing and communications for CMLC.

“Public art is for citizens and visitors alike. Pieces become landmarks, and magnets for people to be drawn to,” states Iley, pointing to The Conversation on Stephen Avenue Walk, a popular photo opp for residents and travellers, who ogle the two pudgy business men, and wonder what exactly are they talking about. “It not only sets the tone for the

community, but expresses the unique character that comes from Calgary’s history, geography, and the people to visitors from around the world.” So how does one “see” their city? With the ability to start dialogue, and create connections between people and their surroundings, Calgary’s public art seems to be a good answer. n

The sign will be restored by Calgary Neon signs, a local company that specializes in historical sign restoration, and will remain in storage until a new permanent location is determined within the East Village.

Some called it a piece of history, while others called it a reminder of a dark past. Whatever the emotions surrounding the Cecil Hotel, all can agree it stood as a Calgary landmark. While the fate of the site is still uncertain, the deconstruction of this icon will not be vain. Elements, such as the prominent neon sign, will play a role in the homage to the past as the continued revitalization of the East Village moves the area into the future. Built in 1912, by C.J. Cote and H.P. Bell, the 57-room hotel, which included a dining area, was meant to accommodate travellers and provide shortterm housing for blue-collar, boom-era workers. The sandstone hotel, set on the corner of Fourth Avenue S.E. and Third Street S.E., would go on to house a stable, a blacksmith shop and grocery store, as well as a cafe and tavern, an amenity would take up nearly the en-

tirety of the ground floor once the prohibition ended in 1924. According to Avenue Calgary, A.E. Cross, a prominent Calgarian and owner of the Calgary Brewing & Malting company, owned the site from 1938 to 1967, eventually selling it to Leo Silberman and partner Saul Rosenbaum in 1968. By the 1970s, the hotel’s tavern was known as a magnet for drugs, prostitution, and violence, which eventually led to its closing in 2008. According to The National Post, in its last year of operation, police were called in 1,700 times to the area, the most for any area in the city. And, after its closure, police calls regarding the area plummeted by 91 per cent. After the 2008 closure, the City of Calgary bought the building from owner Sam Silberman for $10.9 million. The Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC) acquired the building in early 2015.

CMLC initiated a series of structural assessments that determined the century-old building could not be salvaged, CMLC slated the building for demolition. Despite its sorted past, the Cecil’s demolition was received with mixed emotions from Calgary residents. “We are fully aware that some Calgarians were hoping the Cecil could somehow be saved, as it’s one of only six pre-First World War hotels still standing in Calgary. But following decades of neglect plus the ravages of fire and flood; rehabilitation and restoration simply aren’t feasible options,” states Michael Brown, president of the CMLC, in an interview with The Calgary Herald. According to the newspaper, a heritage review by Donald Luxton Associates found the Cecil’s only salvageable elements included its tin roof cornice, north and west masonry facade, a number of cast-iron radiators, bathtubs, and

sinks. Susan Veres, vice-president of marketing and communications for CMLC, states salvageable elements that do not hold historical value, such as bricks or signs, will be utilized in other projects. One element CMLC will retain is the building’s iconic neon sign. The sign will be restored by Calgary Neon signs, a local company that specializes in historical sign restoration, and will remain in storage until a new permanent location is determined. Veres explains the sign could be placed on the same piece of land as part of a bigger design, or in another area in the East Village. “Wherever it’s placed, there’ll always be a home for it in East Village,” she assures, adding demolition of the actual hotel may begin in December 2015. As for the land, which is roughly 43,000 square feet, Veres states CMLC’s development and construction team is taking an audit of current and future development the before they decide what will be constructed on the site. “The team will look at what’s being built now, and what’s in the queue before they define the block,” she states,

Ethics 101

The Canadian Construction Association and BuildForce Canada launch a national ethics program By Tammy Schuster

Kees Cusveller, an executive board member at the Canadian Construction Association, states the association reached out to BuildForce Canada in order to develop a course in ethics with the intent of offering it across Canada.

It could have been a scene from a Martin Scorsese film, but it was real and it was right here in Canada. The Charbonneau Commission — officially called the Commission of Inquiry on the Awarding and Management of Public Contracts in the Construction Industry — was a public inquiry that examined alleged corruption in the Quebec construction industry. Formed in 2011, the focus of the inquiry included many levels of government, political parties, and private organizations. Over the course of two and a half years, the public heard 261 days of testimony from almost 300 witnesses.

Rosemary Sparks, executive director of BuildForce Canada, explains ethics course content will include ethics theory, social responsibility, business and legal ethics, and it will focus on using actual day-to-day situations.

While stories about city officials and corporate executives accused of fraud, bribery, and collusion spread through the media, a conversation was sparked at the Canadian Construction Association. “We identified this as a national issue, it’s not just in Quebec,” says Kees Cusveller, an executive board member at the Canadian Construction Association (CdnCA). “We started looking around and realized very quickly, there is no such thing as a national ethics course in the construction industry. There are a lot of courses that deal with general ethics but not specifically related to what we do as an industry.”

In March 2015, the CdnCA reached out to BuildForce Canada, a national organization that provides market research and information to the construction industry, and together they created a task force to develop a course in ethics with the intent of offering it across Canada. “This was really an opportunity for the industry to show some leadership,” says Rosemary Sparks, executive director of BuildForce Canada. “The CdnCA identified ethics training as a need and a way to demonstrate the ethical standards the industry should be striving for. This is critically important to the industry, and training is one effective strategy that

can instil the importance of ethical behaviour to not only the companies, but to the individual employees, and to the industry as a whole.” Referring to the course as Ethics 101, Cusveller says once it is completed and rolled out in March 2016, it will be a mandatory requirement for Gold Seal certification. Cusveller states passing the idea of developing an industry ethics course was one of the easiest and quickest board decisions ever made. He says due to the range of their members, some issues tend to get polarized. “We considered what a small drywaller in Nova Scotia has in common with a general contractor in Calgary, or a mid-sized plumbing supplier out of Quebec City,” he says. “This was one of those things where we agreed to spend the money and to do it right.” Ted Weallens, past chair of the Calgary Construction Association (CCA), had the same experience when he led a committee of construction industry leaders who developed the Code of Ethics/Code of Practice for the CCA in the

late 1980s. “The code was then presented to the CCA board of directors who unanimously approved it,” he says. The Code of Ethics was developed at that time because he could see the industry was shifting. “A contract was sealed on handshake,” he says, laughing. Weallens believes the way business is done has changed, but the need to conduct business ethically has not. The course, developed for supervisors, superintendents, and managers, will be designed as a blended format, combining online delivery with classroom learning. Cusveller believes inclass conversation and open discussion between students will be beneficial for a course of this nature. The content will include ethics theory, social responsibility, business and legal ethics, and it will focus on using actual day-to-day situations. “It uses practical construction scenarios to support the learning,” says Sparks. “Situations that a manager or supervisor might actually come across in a construction environment.” Sparks adds they are using industry

people to ensure the content focuses on circumstances seen in this business. “It’s very uniquely construction,” she says. “While this course is not trade specific, because ethics are ethics, it is industry specific.” Cusveller says the task force is made up of a diverse group of people from across the country, covering a crosssection of all trades in the construction industry. Each member of the task force is able to share his or her own experiences taken from their own day-to-day dealings. He says it has been challenging coming up with scenarios and solutions, but he says it has also been fun. “Our committee is a very interactive, focused group, and most things are decided by consensus. We have discovered how complicated it is. It’s a big conversation.” The CdnCA plans to release a preview of Ethics 101 at the Canadian Construction Association Annual Conference which will be held in New Orleans in March 2016. n
