Mixing the old and new

New Central Library marries books and community By Melanie Franner

Carson Kotnyek, project manager for Stuart Olson, the general contractor on the New Central Library, explains the building utilizes some unique steel structures including four very large trusses.

They say “you can’t judge a book by its cover,” but this may not be the case with the New Central Library (NCL). True, the building’s exterior will mirror the architectural embodiment of the sense of community within but it will also use a combination of innovative materials and design to play homage to the interior mysteries and wonders that will beckon both young and old for many years to come. The digital age may well be upon us but in the case of the NCL, it will be a matter of combining the old and new to bring about a new definition of this age-old community resource.

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

All in one The NCL will feature an extensive mix of reading, instructional, technological, and play spaces. This will enable it to remain a “library” in the traditional sense, while also inviting broader community participation. Bestsellers will be on display on the first floor, which will also be home to a children’s play and reading area. A coffee shop and foodservice area will be part of the mix, as will a theatre space that can be used for public forums, school groups, book readings, etc. Gathering spaces will be spaced throughout the structure, while the third and fourth floors will provide

a nod to the more traditional with quiet reading spaces and a wood-panelled reading room. “Libraries have always been about people; they are spaces for people to come together to gather and share information,” states Kate Thompson, vicepresident of projects for the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC). “It doesn’t matter if that information is on a scroll, in a book or is in digital format. Yes, the New Central Library will have shelves of books but it will also be a community gathering centre and, as such, will have – and offer – so much more.”

The encapsulation of a working LRT – a first for Calgary – took 18 months, covered 150 metres of the LRT lines and required the installation of 9,150 metres of cable.

Below ground The encapsulation of a working LRT – a first for Calgary – started off what continues to be an exciting construction experience for the NCL. The encapsulation itself took 40,000 hours, or 18 months, to complete. It covered 150 metres of the LRT line and required the installation of 9,150 metres of cable. Ninety-nine per cent of the work was done while the CTrain was in full service. Pilings were sunk to a depth of up to 32 metres. The amount of concrete used totalled 2,500 cubic metres; the amount of rebar 420 metric tonnes. “The encapsulation began in 2014 and was finished in the fall of 2015,” states Carson Kotnyek, project manager for Stuart Olson. “The LRT acted as part of our foundation. The loads from the structure of the building come down through the LRT. As a result, we’ve had to do a lot of specific safety items.” A couple of the specialty products required during the LRT encapsulation included Cematrix lightweight concrete, which provided for a two-hour fire rating in the event of a fire emergency between the LRT and the building, as well as custom-made geoform (expanded polystyrene) blocks that range from a depth of half a metre to a full metre.

“Having finished the foundations of the building, we’re now going vertical with the superstructure,” states Kotnyek. “We’re about 40-per cent done now but are aiming to be finished the structure in early January 2017.” Above ground Thanks to the wide open spaces and raised floors that were specified in the architectural design of the NCL by architects Snøhetta and Dialog, the steel structure of the building features a few unusual elements. One of these is the trusses. “One of the biggest differences in this building is the use of four very large trusses,” explains Kotnyek. “Because we’re going over the top of the trains, there isn’t any intermediate support. It is also an architectural feature of the building. Entuitive is the structural engineer on the project and they designed it in such a way as to require these very large steel trusses that offer a free span of 55 metres.” According to Kotnyek, the trusses are too large to be shipped complete. “They are all custom-made out of heavy-duty plate sections, not your typical steel I-beams,” he says. “They are milled in the U.S., shipped to Canada,

and fabricated in Alberta. They are too big to be shipped complete so we have them being delivered in pieces. We will have to use a combination of specialty trucking and road closures to get them here.” Installation of the trusses is anticipated to finish in Q1 of 2017 and will require the use of a 500-tonne crane. Each of the library floors will have a load-bearing capacity of 7.2 kilopascals. Each truss will use five to 10 beams and columns with the largest weighing 200 tonnes and measuring 53 metres. A fifth, much smaller truss will also be used on the NCL. It will be placed in the very northern portion of the building and will cantilever over the LRT by about five metres. “We just started working on the trusses,” says Kotnyek. “The north-tip truss will be the last one we put in place. It is smaller than the other four but is a bit more complicated to install because of the trains below.” The steel contractor on the job is Supermétal, a global supplier of structural steel. “This is the largest steel I’ve ever dealt with personally,” says Kotnyek. “It’s even unusual for Supermétal.” Another interesting design feature of

the NCL is exposure of the building materials. “The architects are using a lot of the structure as exposed architectural features,” explains Kotnyek. “On the steel side, for example, we have some architecturally exposed structural steel, which needs to be finished to a very high level. There is also exposed architectural concrete in the library’s front of house. The building interior uses a raised floor system so the ceilings are all fully exposed architectural concrete as well, as are all the building columns.” According to Kotnyek, Snøhetta and Dialog wanted the exposed elements to be of a very light-coloured concrete. “We partnered with Lafarge to make a custom light grey colour,” he says, who adds about 60 per cent of the building is concrete and 40 per cent is steel.

Around and around The steel and concrete assembly slowly rising above ground in Calgary’s East Village may constitute the backbone of the NCL but it will be the 465 hexagon panels that form the outer cladding of the building that will help create the iconic nature of the structure itself. Each of the panels is one of five different shapes – and yet each is slightly different from the other. “The cladding was such a critical part of the entire building for us,” explains CMLC’s Thompson. “It lent so much to the identity of the building.” The panels range in size from 4 feet by 12 feet to 9 feet by 30 feet and weigh between 2,000 and 5,000 pounds. They have been designed to fit together like a giant jigsaw puzzle over the steel and concrete structure – encasing the building’s scholastic wonders within. Designed to LEED® Gold certification, the NCL will incorporate a host of energy-efficient technologies. The outer hexagon panels will also do their part to contribute to this equation. “The glass panels will provide texture to the building because they have a clear, glazed, or fritted finish,” says Thompson. “It’s how you plug and play with the panels that gives the building texture. At the same time, the placement of the panels can be used to prevent heat buildup.

To achieve our LEED® Gold status, we kept the glazed openings to a maximum of 40 per cent of the entire exterior of the building. This limits excessive heat loads on the building and therefore reduces any additional cooling applied to the space. Understanding solar gain in the library helped dictate where we have the glazed versus solid panels.” The panels are being fabricated by local manufacturer Ferguson Corporation, a Calgary-based company specializing in advanced curtain wall and structuralglass building enclosures. The company will take eight months to fabricate the panels and another six to install them. “Ferguson had two prototype panels sent down to a testing lab in Miami to see how they withstood water, heat, and other extreme conditions,” says Thompson, who adds some minor modifications were made as a result. “Ferguson will start the installation from the south end of the building, make their way around the corner and then head to the north end. The building should be entirely closed in by the spring of 2017.” BIM technology One of the key tools used in the design and construction of the NCL is BIM and 3D modelling technology. In fact, the building’s unique geometry made it almost a necessity.

“Because of the curves and compound curves that are not on a radius, we had to use 3D modelling on the entire project,” states Kotnyek. “Everything from the concrete to penetration of the concrete to the structural steel and curtain wall, all of it relied on taking XYZ points of space out of the model. We used it for all of the building’s layout and for all the trades.” Kotnyek adds that without the use of BIM, the project would not only prove that much more challenging but there would be a lot more risk inherent in human error. As such, Stuart Olson has spent a lot of time and energy in educating the trades about the use of BIM. “We’ve asked each of the major trades – like the structural steel, mechanical, and curtain wall – to do their own 3D model and then we’ve brought those standalone models into the master one,” he explains. “This way, we’re able to see beforehand if something doesn’t line up or if there is an issue with the connector points.” According to Kotnyek, BIM meetings are held on a weekly basis in order to foresee any potential challenges arising in the next three or four-week scope of work. “By using BIM, we’re able to solve any potential clashes or coordination issues in the meeting room rather than in the

field,” he says. “It helps us save time and money and even more important, the cost of having to rework something that has already been completed.” Toward 2018 Phase 1 of the NCL project – LRT encapsulation – is complete. Phase 2 is almost complete. It represents the building skeleton or the erection of the building structure itself – rising four storeys above ground. This phase also includes the outer curtain wall and the fabrication on the 465 hexagon glass panels. Installation will be complete by the spring of 2017. After that, it’s the mechanical and electrical services of Phase 3 and then the fit and finishing stage of Phase 4. “The interesting thing for the public is that the outside of the building will soon look like it’s largely done,” states Thompson. “But we’ll just be starting on the inside.” That being said, Thompson is quick to add that, like the public, the construction site is abuzz of excitement these days. “There is a palpable sense of pride onsite with the trades,” she concludes. “Everyone is pretty excited to be working on a public building that is so unusual in its design. Everyone is being pushed to their limits but, at the same time, excited about the challenge.” n

CCA Chair’s Report Frederick Vine

Frederick Vine observed the devastation that hit Fort McMurray from the wildfires when he was there in October 2016.

I am honoured to have the privilege of serving as the Calgary Construction Association (CCA) chair for 2016. Calgary is currently experiencing an economic downturn which creates a great deal of volatility for the construction industry. Calgary has experienced similar downturns several times in the last 40 years. I am convinced the construction industry will emerge from this latest reality stronger, more successful, and better equipped to deal with the future prosperity in Alberta. Corporate social responsibility Following our Annual General Meeting in March 2016, when I assumed my current position as chair, our first board meeting and retreat was held in Banff the same week as the wild fire, dubbed “The Beast,” was sweeping through Fort McMurray. The first item discussed was not if we would help but how we should help. The CCA directors agreed unanimously to donate $100,000, previously designated for future Calgary Construction Association building maintenance, to the Red Cross Wildfire Relief Fund.

Lean is the Word

The benefits of a Lean construction model By Melanie Franner

Kathleen Lausman at the LCI-Canada conference held in Calgary in February 2016.

The movement to Lean construction is one that is growing by leaps and bounds – thanks in part to the continuing awareness of the concept. Another reason for its increasing popularity derives from the benefits delivered therein. “Generally, when there is awareness of Lean construction, the acceptance rate is very high,” explains Kathleen Lausman, council co-chair for the Lean Construc-

tion Institute of Canada (LCI-Canada). “The use of Lean methodologies and tools will improve any process at the grass-roots level and can be initiated in any business – big or small.” Waste not; want not Of course, increasing project value by eliminating waste is one of the biggest drivers of Lean construction processes.

How the Calgary Construction Association Lean Movement Began The first LCI-C Conference was held April 6 to 8, 2016, in Calgary. With 25 per cent of the attendees from Calgary, it’s clear that enhancing productivity, improving profitability, and helping the industry achieve better results with less waste are on the radar for the Calgary construction community. However, Lean construction was introduced to the Calgary community before this inaugural conference of LCI-C. In January 2015, the Calgary Construction Association held the first training session on Lean principles and “Pull Planning.” Centron Group of Companies and Westcor Construction Ltd. were attendees at this inaugural training and are actively embracing Lean in their companies. The Lean journey continued with Calgary hosting the LCI-C Lean Forum, to a room full of 54 attendees in February 2016, creating sufficient momentum to start the “Lean movement.”

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

This rings especially true in today’s construction industry where new technologies have done little to increase efficiencies. “The term ‘waste’ is foundational to the concept of Lean construction,” explains Lausman. “Productivity in the building industry has remained flat or declined over the past number of decades in comparison to other industries. Yet technology in all industries has improved. Look at every aspect of building – materials have improved, systems and knowledge have advanced and yet, Bridging the Gap from Site to Office In December 2016, the Calgary Construction Association will be delivering a Lean course to explore the Lean processes that “Bridge the Gap from Site to Office.” The session will focus on purchase orders, payment process, RFIs, change orders, daily logs, and time sheets with the goal of streamlining execution that delivers value to the customer.

when measuring against the three metrics of on budget, on schedule and expected quality, project outcomes have declined.” Lean construction defines waste as “any activity that has a cost and provides no value to the project.” “The Request for Information process, price request, and change-order process are examples of some of the major wastes in our industry,” states Ken Smith, council member, LCI-Canada. “This process is a reaction to having incomplete information at the front end of the project. It adds no value to the customer.” The idea that every activity should add value is easily understandable. “Time is money,” adds Lausman. “So every activity on a project should be adding value.” According to Smith, there is approximately 50 per cent of waste in every construction project. Of that amount, about half is unavoidable. That leaves one quarter – or 25 per cent – as avoidable. That 25 per cent is significant – even on projects that don’t necessarily involve millions of dollars. “We’re so used to waste that when we price a project for the owner, we do not realize that our unit costs include costs of all types of waste that we encounter on projects,” he says. “The unit costs that we use to bid on projects includes

cost of unnecessarily handling and moving materials, storing, and sorting materials ahead of when required, waiting for answers to our RFIs, etc.” Smith is quick to add that by eliminating waste, costs to the project can be reduced and, at the same time, profitability increased. Lean identifies a minimum of eight avoidable wastes that add no value to construction projects. These include: • Transport – moving people, products, and information unnecessarily; • Inventory – storing parts, pieces, documentation, equipment, and materials ahead of requirements; • Motion – bending, turning, reaching, lifting – unnecessarily; • Waiting – for parts, information, instructions, equipment, decisions; • Over-production – making more than is immediately required; • Over-processing – tighter tolerances or higher-grade materials than are necessary; over-designing; • Defects – rework, scrap, incorrect documentation, redesign; and • Skills – underutilizing capabilities, delegating tasks with inadequate training. “All of these eight wastes are critical and important to improving value to the building industry through reduction or elimination,” notes Lausman.

Leaning Up the Office Recognizing that Lean is not just for the construction site, the Calgary Construction Association will offer in November 2016 a session titled “Leaning Up the Office.” Many organizations are now rapidly realizing numerous processes that are slowing down production and causing waste are administrative and are turning to Lean to address this. It’s not always about how to get things done better or faster, but rather about are we doing what we really need to be doing. Change it up There are a number of Lean tools and methods designed to help eliminate waste. 5S, for example, focuses on the five ways to better organize your business and work in order to eliminate waste. “Just cleaning and organizing your work space can produce dramatic results,” explains Smith. “A clean job site is a safe job site is a productive job site.” In the end, however, it comes down to accepting change. And, it needs to start with a changed mindset of collaboration explains Lausman. It has been said the industry operates in silos with a series of specialists concerned about their own individual part as opposed to the whole

project outcome. This “grey area” of work handoff leads to scope disputes, delays, rework, and project gaps. The CCA also saw this silo approach and responded by creating their owner, architects engineers, and contractors (OAEC) workshop, spawning task forces which focus on leadership and industry collaboration. Much like Lean, it’s goal is to eliminate “waste.” Eliminating waste is the end goal but there are many benefits to be attained in between – such as better experiences for all participants, greater profitability, better value for the money, and a competitive advantage. Research data from a Construction 2013 McGraw Hill study found that the use of Lean project delivery methods produced numerous positive results which include improved safety, greater customer satisfaction, higher quality construction, reduced project schedule, greater productivity, and greater profitability/reduced costs. “Other common benefits of Lean construction include improved employee morale, reduced employee turnover, and employee pride of workmanship,” says Smith, adding Lean was developed in the manufacturing industry back in the 1990s and harkens back to the “Toyota Way” manufacturing process which is all about collaboration and working together to create better value through the elimination of waste. “In the design and construction industry, we’re adapting Lean manufacturing principles to the project processes, which is drastically different as each project is different, involves a different business structure, and is in a different location with a different team of professionals.”

The Journey On September 9, 2016, the CCA launched the inaugural Calgary Community of Practice (CoP) under the guidance of LCI-C. CoPs are where this emerging community meets and a sense is forged. At their best, local CoPs provide a meeting ground where people can gather, learn, connect, and explore the ramifications of these ideas both for their own organizations and the larger industry. Smith has found those contractors who practice Lean processes are the ones being invited to bid on invitational tenders where bidders are selected based on professionalism, co-operation, and a collaborative culture – not simply on price alone. “The general contractors notice that things just work more efficiently with these select collaborative trades,” he explains. “I believe that eventually, Lean construction will see more team members chosen because of their relationships and expertise more so than the price. By eliminating waste, the priority can change from low cost to quality collaborative teams working together to improve value and reduce waste to the customer.” Lausman’s own experience with Lean construction lends credence to this. “What happens with a Lean project is that there is a whole array of people who are at different steps of the journey,” she explains. “In our case, we brought in Lean facilitators and Lean training. We put everyone through Lean boot camp and set up a big room – physical and virtual – so that everyone could be in

the same space and collaborate. We used the project as a vehicle to actually train people on how Lean methodology works and how to use it within their own business.” Lausman admits there was a cost to facilitating Lean learning on the project but one that she says was well worth it. “It was a lot less expensive than not doing it that way,” she notes. “It was a small cost input relative to the resultant value output.” Lean in action Clark Builders is an example of a general contracting company that has adopted Lean methodology. According to Austin Boyle, senior project manager for Clark Builders, it’s something that has been underfoot for the last couple of years. “A lot of the things that we already had been doing are Leanbased,” he says, citing the company’s drive for continuous improvement as a prime example. “For us, it’s more of a philosophy of expressing that across the entire business, at empowering people to look for ways to improve things and make them better.” Boyle alludes to the company’s automated work flows and use of electronics in the field to stay on top of current drawings as further examples of how processes have been changed for the better. “We plan, assess, modify, or update as we go along,” he adds. “We’re continuously improving as the project advances.” Clark Builders’ Lean processes and tools also extend to its partners. “We like to build relationships with our subcontractors and bring them in on our methods so that they see the value in their own businesses,” he says, adding that one of the critical components of these relationships is to have everyone working together. “At the end of the day, the subcontractors and our field staff are the ones doing the work. They’re the best ones to say, ‘Hey, there is a better way to do this’, so we bring them in to get their input as early as possible and throughout the process.” Boyle suggests that one of the easiest ways of passing along the merits inherent in Lean methodology is to refrain from making it too complicated. Keeping it simple always wins in the end, he says. “People need to realize that it’s not a typical start and stop process, as there isn’t an actual finish,” he adds. “It’s a long road and a constant evolution. It’s about building a culture of thinking differently and empowering our people. You just have to let it grow.” A new day has begun And with LCI-Canada focused on nurturing this growth within the Canadian construction industry, one can rest assured that the use of Lean methodology will continue to increase as time goes on. “Lean is a mindset and a journey of continuous learning and improving,” concludes Lausman. “If an organization isn’t learning, changing or improving, then it won’t be around for very long. Lean is a way to gain a competitive advantage. And in a day when global economic influences are on the rise, having a competitive advantage is critical to survival.” n

still allowing design teams to explore multiple options. Both the NECB and ABC 9.36 offer a design team a choice of three compliance paths: prescriptive, trade-off, and performance modelling. The prescriptive path requires meeting all requirements outlined in the code. It is typically the simplest compliance path to follow, but may not be appropriate for all buildings.

Compliance paths One of the most important aspects of the new requirements is the flexibility with compliance they provide engineers, architects, and designers. The new requirements give guidance while

The trade-off path allows for more flexibility in your design, allowing you to trade elements within a portion of the design, like the building envelope, so the overall performance is equal or better to the prescriptive path without meeting every prescriptive element found in the code. The performance compliance path provides the most design flexibility. You must demonstrate that your proposed design will not consume more energy than an equivalent building built to prescriptive requirements. This path is the most complex, and requires the use of a computer simulation, but offers significantly more design freedom. “Following these requirements will incur a small cost to builders,” says Pockar. “We are not naive to the difficulty that changes like this present. We’ve really tried to go out of our way to help builders adopt these new standards. We’ve put together web information for both commercial and residential buildings on what the standards are and how to comply. We’ve tried to instill a sense of flexibility and a provide paths to painless compliance.” Chegus says she thinks Albertans should be asking for more, looking beyond energy code compliance. “I believe it can drive innovation in the industry as a whole,” she says. n To learn more and to download compliance documents from the City of Calgary, visit calgary.ca/energycode and calgary.ca/936.

Strong as Steel

Iconic structural steel buildings grace Calgary’s skyline By Lisa Fattori

The Bow was Calgary’s first steel skyscraper and required 200-plus ironworkers and three different crews of raising gangs, as well as bolting up crews, to construct the east and west ends and the middle of the building.

Some of Calgary’s most iconic buildings have been constructed using structural steel. The Bow is an internationally-acclaimed landmark that joins other award-winning Calgary steel structures, including Telus Spark, The Water Centre, Calgary Courts Centre Atrium, and National Music Centre. The office tower, 707 Fifth, is currently under construction, as is Brookfield Place, which will surpass the Bow as Calgary’s tallest building. While the price between steel and concrete is comparable, the decision to construct using one over the other is dependent on personal preference and several variables including complexity of design, construction time, and a building’s function. Structural steel is often the preferred choice for office towers as the building material offers speed of erection in multi-storey construction. Unlike concrete multiple floors can be erected at a time, in all weather, and steel does not require forms or hoarding. The material also gives architects a greater degree of flexibility and creativity, combining function with aesthetics. Steel

can be cut and shaped more readily, and if a change in design is made, the section can easily be cut out and replaced with a new fabricated piece. “What we’re hearing from the design community is that steel buildings can be erected more quickly, and they allow for column-free clear spans,” says Neil Kaarsemaker, regional manager for Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC). “Fabrication is done off-site, then materials are delivered on a just-in-time basis, for a seamless workflow. Structural steel construction is quite prevalent in the commercial sector and, increasingly, it’s being used in public infrastructure, such as bridges and airport terminals, as well as municipal buildings, such as schools, recreation centres, libraries, museums, and art galleries.” With more companies looking for products that have a lower environmental footprint, steel is also a sustainable building material. According to the CISC, there is up to 93 per cent recycled

content in steel construction and more than 98 per cent of steel in construction can be reused. Since 1990, energy efficiency in the Canadian steel industry has improved by 26 per cent, and greenhouse gas emissions have been reduced by 24 per cent in intensity per tonne. Compared to 10 years ago, air and water emissions are 90 per cent lower and, as a highly prefabricated system, steel increases efficiency by reducing construction periods by 60 per cent and requiring 75 per cent fewer on-site workers. “The industry’s evolution includes advances in the composition of steel, to make it lighter and, at the same time, stronger,” says Kaarsemaker. “From a design perspective, there’s been a lot of improvements in the connection design between pieces, which has resulted in a reduction in the amount of steel required and erection time. The fabrication process has also become highly automated, for increased efficiency.” Set to open in April 2017, 707 Fifth is a structural steel, 27-storey office tower that is targeted to become LEED® Gold certified. Developed by Manulife Real Estate, the 600,000-square-foot building has a distinct elliptical form and floorto-ceiling glass to maximize sunlight exposure. The building’s concrete core supports the structural steel and houses the elevator shaft. Composite metal decking is attached to the steel beams and concrete topping, reinforced with steel mesh, and reinforcing steel, is placed over the metal deck. The design allows for openconcept, flexible interior spaces, which is on trend with modern office environments. “Structural steel construction allows owners of buildings to have clear-span office space with no columns in the centre, which is what a lot of tenant companies like,” says Martyn Wesley, construction manager for EllisDon Construction, general contractor on the project. “Steel buildings also go up faster, although you have to spend an extra week, per floor, to fire-spray the steel.” Structural steel contractor, Supermétal, began erecting the tower in July 2015, and installed the last steel beam in May 2016. Approximately 4,500 tonnes of steel was used for the project. A self-erect-

ing tower crane was used for the project, and placed all of the structural steel. Final steel installation for the two-storey roof light box was completed in September 2016. A derrick, placed on the roof, will be used to dismantle the crane. “If you get the fabrication right, then the construction of a steel building goes very well,” says Welsey. “The challenge is having the right weather conditions. If the wind gets too strong, you have to shut down the crane. Also, many of the columns need to be welded with full penetration welds. This can be difficult in winter, when you have days with very cold temperatures.” Brookfield Place is also a new commercial development that occupies a full city block, between 1st and 2nd Streets and 6th and 7th Avenues Southwest in Calgary’s downtown core. This structural steel building is 11 metres taller than the Bow at 247 metres and is targeted for LEED® Gold for core and shell development. The 60-storey East Tower offers over 1.4 million square feet of space, while additional development plans include a 42-storey West Tower totalling one million square feet, a 60-foot-high glass pavilion, restaurants, retail shops and amenities at street level, a public plaza, and underground parking. The East Tower broke ground in 2013, with the project targeted for completion at the end of 2017. Structural steel construction commenced in March 2015, and the building was topped off at the end of July 2016. Structural steel was also used for the glass pavilion. The project required the detailing, supply, and erection of over 10,000 tonnes of structural steel, which included an intricate Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel (AESS) crown at the top of the building to house the mechanical penthouse. Floor plates have concrete infill on the metal decking. “Brookfield Place replaces the Bow as the tallest commercial office tower building west of Toronto,” says Tim Verhey, vice-president of Engineering and Production for Walters Inc., the steel supplier and steel erector for the Bow. “The building is rectangular in plan, however, the radius of the tower’s corners increase as you go up the building, creating an optical illusion that the building is tapered.

tures a triangular steel diagrid system on a curved building, whereby the exposed structural framing supports the building and is part of the aesthetic design. As such, the project required approximately 30 per cent less steel and, due to large spans, interior space was maximized for a total of two million square feet of office space. The connection/construction engineering, detailing, fabrication, and erection of the structural steel was a joint venture between Walters Inc. and Supreme Steel. “The diagrid system for the Bow was made up of 10 six-storey modules,” says Verhey. “Everything was fabricated off-site and then shipped by rail and truck to the site. Connections for the architectural diagrid were bolt-ed temporarily with crews coming in behind to complete all of the welding. The majority of the lateral loads are resisted at the exterior of the building. For a building of this height and shape, the exterior structural steel diagrid system is the most efficient for resisting the lateral wind loading.” Top down construction enabled above grade work to continue simultaneously with the construction of the parking garage beneath the Bow. The main foundation was a 10-foot thick pour and, at 13,500 cubic metres, was the largest continuous concrete pour in Canada at the time. The steel framed garage was constructed quickly and the building’s main floor was constructed to provide the support needed to accommodate the tower

Because the skip could only be mounted to where the cement was poured, this project required ironworkers to do a lot of walking to reach upper levels of the structure. For ironworkers, however, weather conditions pose the biggest challenge, particularly when workers are at extreme heights where they are more exposed to the elements. “When storms come up, you have to shut down the skip, because it’s too dangerous,” says Bird. “One time, on the Bow, we were on the 36th floor and a hail storm came up that lasted three and a half hours.

When it’s windy and you’re walking the beam, you wait for a break in the wind and then run quickly to where you need to be.” In Alberta, ironworkers are in high demand, not only in the construction of skyscrapers, but in the construction of facilities and infrastructure in the oil sands. Elroy Cheesequay is a fourth-year structural ornamental ironworker apprentice who is currently working at CNRL in Fort McMurray constructing steel structures to support pipelines. What attracted Cheesequay to the trade was the opportunity to work with cranes and rigging, and the climbing, lifting, and connecting parts of the job. “I really like the physical part of the job and I get paid to be an iron monkey,” he says. “The work is physically challenging, but you have to be mentally sharp as well. That’s why getting enough sleep is important. One slip-up and you could pinch fingers or damage property. There are so many variables when you’re working with steel, and you and your partner have to be on the same page. A lot of people don’t want such a physical job, but in the oil sands, ironworkers are a hot commodity.” n

It was my 35th birthday, June 24th, 1984, when I started working at the Calgary Construction Association (CCA). It was a day after my last child was born, and with five kids to feed, I was eager to start at a new job in the ICI construction sector from that of the home builders. It was tough times back in the early 1980s. Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau had implemented the National Energy Program (1981) which resulted in thousands of Calgarians being laid off. Not only was unemployment skyrocketing, but so were mortgage rates. Thousands of homeowners had no jobs, and with the value of their home less than their mortgage they simply left the keys in their front door for the bank and walked away. For the CCA, membership was down. The new 30,000-square-foot Calgary Construction Centre had recently opened with very few tenants, and the financial statements of the association were facing red ink. But the task to bring the association back to life was a welcome challenge for me. Oil prices in 1980 were $37.42 per barrel ($109.51 inflation adjusted by 2016 standards) and by 1988, the price of oil slipped to $14.87. The XV Olympic Winter Games brought an excitement to the city of Calgary. Even with no Canadian athlete winning a gold medal, who would forget the heroic failure of British ski jumper Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards and the Winter Olympic debut of Jamaica’s national bobsled team? You could say the numerous venues built for the Olympics in the mid-1980s saved many contractors from closing their doors. There was not only the Olympic Saddledome, Olympic Oval, ski jumps and bobsled/luge track being built, but also the beautiful new City of Calgary $92-million Municipal Building designed by the international awardwinning firm of Webb Zerafa Menkes Housden (WZMH) Architects, who also designed the CN Tower in Toronto.

this day, this signature civic building continues to bring an emotional impact on the citizens of Calgary as it did when it was opened in 1985. The city skyline has changed dramatically over the years that I have been at CCA. Just across the street from the Municipal Building, we have a new architectural wonder being built - the New Central Library (NCL). I am sure the NCL will leave a lasting impression on future generations for decades to come just as the Municipal Building has done.

On the political side of the agenda, after more than 30 years, we have a new prime minister, Justin Trudeau, son of the late Pierre Elliott Trudeau, along with a new NDP government after nearly 44 years of Conservative rule. However, today’s business environment is very similar as when I started in 1984. We’re seeing high unemployment in Calgary, which is sitting at nine per cent due to the fall in oil prices to below the $27 level from over $100 a barrel in early 2014.

of the longest oil downturns since the 1980s, house prices have hung in remarkably well. Average house prices in Calgary are up 17 per cent over the last five years, a stark contrast to the first five years in the 1980s when Calgary home values lost more than a third of their value. The big difference between now and then is that mortgage rates were setting record highs in the double digits, while today they’re setting record lows. With a young Trudeau and Alberta’s Premier Rachel Notley indecisiveness on the development of Canada’s natural resources, Calgary finds itself once again with tens of thousands of unemployed Calgarians. As Alberta’s lead economic driver, the oil and gas industry has halted most developments due to a global oversupply in oil. In addition, the governments of the day, both provincially and federally, are attempting to convince Canadians the world will not survive with the continuing use of fossil fuels which give off greenhouse gas emissions. The media, along with our politicians, continue to put the fear into Canadians that we must look towards renewable resources immediately and, thus, the proposed carbon tax. While our government officials ponder how to move the green environment forward, four major pipeline projects remain in limbo - TransCanada Corp’s Energy East ($15.7 billion), Enbridge Inc.’s Northern Gateway ($7.9 billion), and Kinder Morgan Inc.’s Trans Mountain pipeline expansion ($6.8 billion). National Energy Board (NEB) costs for the review of the Trans Mountain pipeline hit $1.83 million, with a conditional recommendation in May 2016, that the line from Edmonton to Burnaby, B.C., be approved. TransCanada had hoped Energy East would be running in 2017; however, the NEB review, which is financed 90 per cent by the pipeline and energy companies and 10 per cent from public coffers, has already spent $685,000 dollars and there is no figure as to what the final NEB numbers will be for Energy East. The NEB hopes to have a decision made on Energy East pipeline by 2018 and operating by 2021. And let’s not forget TransCanada’s Keystone XL which has been rejected by the Obama administra-

tion and has led to a $15-billion claim under NAFTA. Should we be asking ourselves the question, “Is there overkill in the regulatory approval process by our governments that have placed a huge burden on companies to show how big projects benefit our economy, while safeguarding the environment?” Now I am not suggesting Canada adopts the communist way of doing things, but I do sense while recently touring the Three Gorges Dam in China, that the Chinese

government basically gave notice to 1.2 million rural Chinese farmers that the new dam would rise 181 metres and the dam’s reservoir would back up 600 kilometres, so they (the farmers) best get ready to pull up stakes, many of which did. Maybe in China that process just applies to “renewable hydro energy” projects. Being that the CCA and our affiliate associations, the Alberta Construction Association and the Canadian Construction Association, are looked upon

to be the “Voice of the Construction Industry”, we need to speak out more, and our governments have to be realistic in establishing goals to reduce our CO2 emissions. Non-renewal world production of resources, such as crude oil (32 per cent), coal (31 per cent), and natural gas (24 per cent), currently provides 87 per cent of the world’s energy with renewables. Hydro produces six per cent, while wind, biofuels, solar, and geothermal make up two per cent. Nuclear makes up five per cent which has emission values lower that renewables; however, among social debates nuclear power opponents contend that nuclear power poses many threats to people, and who can argue with that when you consider what happened at Chernobyl and Fukushima in Russia and Japan respectively. On global energy consumption, China, the world’s second largest economy, consumes 20 per cent, with the largest economy being the United States, which consumes 19 per cent. Canada consumes 2.6 per cent, and India, a country with 37 times the population of Canada, consumes four per cent. However, that will surely change over the coming decade. With a carbon tax being set by the federal government, along with a few provincial governments, this new tax will cost everyone. Isn’t this dumb politics and economic madness considering today’s economy? And don’t forget in Alberta since Premier Notley was elected, MEMBER the bond rating agency Standards and Poor’s has downgraded Alberta’s credit rating twice, knocking Alberta from its Triple A rating to AA+ (December 2015), and then again to AA (May 2016), all in just one year. In addition, Alberta’s dramatic jump in borrowing has resulted in a forecast that Alberta’s debt will hit $57 billion. However, Premier Notley continues to embrace a climate change strategy which means a cap on oilsands emissions, an accelerated phase-out of coal power, increases in the minimum Pile Load Load Testing Build Solutions • Driven Piling Piling • Expanded Base Piling Pile Testing• Design • Design Build Solutions • Driven • Expanded Base Piling wage, and a $20 per tonne for CO2 Drilled Cast-In-Place Piling • Continuous Flight Auger Piling • Tiebacks • Cut-off Drilled Cast-In-Place Piling • Continuous Flight Auger Piling • Tiebacks • Cut-off emissions effective January 1, 2017, inWalls • Earth Retention and Shoring • Diaphragm Walls • Cutter Soil Mixing Walls • Earth Retention and Shoring • Diaphragm Walls • Cutter Soil Mixing creasing to $30 per tonne in 2018, which www.agra.com is estimated to cost Albertans $9.6 bilEdmonton • Calgary • Saskatoon • Vancouver info@agra.com www.agra.com lion over a five-year period.

REPORT | CCA President’s Message

We all know we will have to address the issue of climate change, but we have to question how will this be accomplished? Will China and the U.S. commit to the Paris climate accord or will they just pay lip service to the emission reduction targets that will be set by the United Nations? We must take a more balanced approach as Canada will not solve the global warming issue alone. No matter what happens, and to just to reassure everyone, contractors from coast to coast in Canada embrace sustainability while building in the 21st century. Owners who purchase construction services, along with architects and engineers and the construction community are all working towards creating healthier buildings where we live, work, and play. The new National Energy Code for Buildings which is being adopted by the City of Calgary (November 1, 2016) is being accepted by the owners, architects, engineers, and contractors (OAEC) communities which will reduce our carbon footprint and will provide for a more durable and energy-efficient environment. The OAEC will continue to be innovative over the coming years as we strive for “net zero.” Whatever the challenges, the construction industry, along with their OAEC partners, will work to ensure our environment will provide Calgarians and Albertans with a lifestyle few experience. We will continue to work hard and be innovative in our democratic society without political turbulence as being experienced in such petro-states as Russia, Venezuela, Nigeria, Ecuador, and Brazil.

After 32 years with the association, this will likely be my last article that I will write for The Constructor magazine which has been said to be the best publication produced by the construction industry in Canada. Making a difference has been a key objective of the CCA over the period that I have served this industry association as your president. I am very humbled and it has been an honour to have worked with so many great leaders, not only in Calgary but throughout Canada and the U.S. Over the course of my years of service as your president, I am proud to say CCA was: • the first local construction association in Canada to provide the members with an electronic Bulletin Board System (1991) which became known as COOLNet (1995) and has since grown to be a provincial wide electronic tender document distribution service in Alberta in addition to providing e-Bidding. • The OAEC communities experienced the introduction of CAD, and two decades later, building information modeling (BIM). CCA is a leading OAEC partner in embracing the development of full BIM implementation. • The CCA in partnership with the City of Calgary developed the only Advanced Weather Forecasting System (AWFS) in North America, along with addressing issues of safety, prequalification and the review of construction contracts.

FEATURE | Lafarge’s Exshaw Facility

The Right Stuff

Lafarge’s Exshaw facility achieves bigger and better By Melanie Franner The Lafarge facility near Exshaw, Alberta, has been producing cement for over 110 years and has achieved record sales as a result. But thanks to recent modernizations and improvements that were necessary to increase operating capacity, it’s on a trajectory to achieve even more. The latest round of renovations began in 2007, with the design, engineering, and permit process. Actual physical construction on the upgrades started in 2013. The end result is the closure of Kiln 4, major upgrades to Kiln 5, and the launch of brand new Kiln 6. “We’re committed to continuous improvement,” explains Jim Bachmann, plant manager at the Lafarge Exshaw facility. “We had to upgrade a lot of our environmental systems and permits at the time, so it just made sense to modernize the plant as well.” The upshot of all this work is a production capacity increase from 1.3 million tonnes per year (tpy) to 2.2 million tpy – almost double the capacity. Add to this a 60-per cent reduction in

68

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

sulphur dioxide emissions, a 40-per cent reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions, and a significant reduction in fugitive dust and noise coming from the plant’s equipment. The facility has also achieved zero water discharge from its operations. The plant used to “borrow” water from the Bow River to cool down its equipment but it now uses a closedloop system that needs to be topped up only from loss due to evaporation. “One of the more noteworthy aspects of this project is the world-class people we have here,” states Bachmann. “We have a team of 160 employees who have worked collectively for over one million hours with no lost-time incident. And, if you consider the close to 600 contractors we had on-site during peak construction, that’s another almost three million hours with no losttime incidents. That’s due solely to a lot of good people and good systems. Safety is definitely our main focus here – each and every day.”

Kiln craft The recent work at the Lafarge Exshaw plant included the closure of Kiln 4, a $20-million investment in Kiln 5, and the launch of a brand new Kiln 6. Kiln 4 was shut down officially in November 2015. This was done for a couple of reasons, namely to meet new emissions targets established by the provincial government and to retire the less efficient gravel-bed filter technology. Upgrades to Kiln 5 began in 2013, and continued through until July 2014 – at which point all attention shifted to Kiln 6. “Kiln 5 used similar technology to what we’re using for Kiln 6,” explains Bachmann. “But the technology has improved a lot since the 1980s when we built Kiln 5. It’s become a lot more efficient. We achieved a


25-per cent reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for Kiln 5 just based on combustion alone as a result of our improvements.” The improvements to Kiln 5 took place concurrently to the building of Kiln 6 – a tough achievement, given the tight footprint of the facility and the fact that Kiln 5 had to remain operational throughout. The plant is approximately 302,800 square metres and the construction site is approximately 84,000 square metres, meaning that the company had to work within a space that equates to about 28 per cent of its industrial property. Kiln 6 uses a long, dry technology with a five-stage pre-heater pre-calciner. “The idea for Kiln 6 was conceived back in 2006 but actual construction began in mid-2014,” explains Bachmann, who attributes the delay primarily to the need for upgraded environmental permits. “The expansion was part of the environmental upgrade strategy.” Kiln 6 became operation in May 2016. The new processing line includes a new raw mill, storage dome, pre-heater tower, and vertical cement mill. The equipment alone is worth hundreds of millions of dollars. “It’s one of the best startups we’ve ever had in this company,” notes Bachmann. “It has met all of our expectations

and those of the community. Like any startup, there are a few growing pains in the first three to six months but there is no doubt that it has been a lot easier than we thought it would be.” Dome design As part of the new Kiln 6 processing line, Lafarge needed to rethink its material storage philosophy. “We use a lot of raw materials to make our product,” explains Bachmann. “Historically, we had a lot of temporary storage areas on site but the high winds in the valley can make some of these materials airborne or, if it rains, the materials become wet and we need to incur the expense of drying them. Constructing a permanent storage dome became a win-win for both us and the community.” Lafarge scoured the globe in search of the perfect dome – and eventually settled on an aluminum one from China that measures approximately 110 metres in diameter and has a total volume capacity of 53,000 tonnes. “We looked at all the options – concrete, steel, aluminum – you name it,” explains Bachmann. “In the end, we decided to go with an aluminum one. It wasn’t the cheapest option but it was the safest to build. The nice thing about it is that every

part of that dome was built at a height of no more than eight to 10 feet off the ground.” The dome itself is about 35 metres tall but the first piece of it to be constructed was the very tip. That tip was then raised so many feet up and the next curved piece was built below it. The dome got wider and taller as it moved further and further into construction. Of course, as the dome began to emerge on the horizon, the community became more and more interested. “One of our employees had the idea of holding a contest to name the dome,” says Bachmann. “The idea really caught on. We ran the contest for about four weeks and we’re expecting maybe 50 submittals in total. By the end of the first week, we had over 100.” The contest was limited to full-time residents within the community. More than 300 entries were received. “Our employees got to pick from among the submissions and come to an agreement as to which one they thought was the best,” adds Bachmann. “We donated money to the charity of choice on behalf of the winner but there were so many good entries that we also ended up donating a total of about $4,000.” The winning proposal was EcoDome, although Bachmann himself still thinks highly of the Rubble Bubble. Ready and willing The recent upgrades to Kiln 5 and the new Kiln 6 have prepared the Lafarge Exshaw plant for both today and tomorrow. Already, the facility has increased its cement production to supply the ever-growing list of customers within Western Canada and the northern U.S. states. It has also resulted in better environmental systems as well. According to Bachmann, any new plant comes with at least a 50-year life expectancy. In this case, Lafarge has been operating on this site for well over 100 years. The company has even completed two restoration projects on an adjacent cemetery that dates back to May 1906 – and has provided restricted access to community members who want to visit those interred.

great-granddaughter visited just a few weeks ago. By all accounts, it looks like Lafarge will be operating in Exshaw for many more years yet to come. And it looks like that’s good news for both the community and the province. “We recently completed a socio-economic study that showed the economic impact of our plant’s increased production and GDP of Alberta is estimated at $1.2 billion per year,” concludes Bachmann, who adds the study also attributed nearly 7,000 jobs to the facility. “There are no plans currently to expand beyond Kiln 6 but who knows what the future may bring.

Construction Industry Connections

Matching youth with employers one opportunity at a time

By Colleen Biondi

Kevin King (left) with Dave Kinley (right), founder and CEO of Concept Electric, both understand the importance of YEP. King is an alumni of the YEP program, now project manager at Concept Electric, while Kinley served as the chair of YEP for several years and continues to hire candidates from the program to work at his company.

Like many 22 year olds, Kevin King didn’t really know what he wanted to do with his life. He was studying business at university, but his heart was not in it. A family friend, who was working on his family’s basement, suggested he think about the construction industry and recommended King contact a program at the Calgary Construction Association (CCA) designed to get young people involved in the business. That call changed the trajectory of his work life. In short order, he went to work as a starter electrician at Concept Electric. Over the last eight years, he’s advanced from apprentice to journeyman and held the positions of foreman and superintendent. He is currently a project manager and,

ironically, is now back to school taking a business degree online from Athabasca University. “The Youth Employment Program (YEP) did absolutely everything for me,” he says. “It was a fantastic experience.” This kind of experience has been replicated time over time since the program started in 1998, says Toni Casamassima, construction career development co-ordinator at the CCA. The program matches young people over age 16 and generally inexperienced with entry-level positions in the construction industry. There are two parts to the program. One is developing awareness of potential construction careers through posters, presentations, career fairs, and social

media, while the other is recruiting interested young people and employers. It works like this: a young person goes to the program website (www.yepcca.cc) and researches the large variety of construction trades to choose from, fills out a “Career Research Report” which outlines what area is of interest and why, and then submits a resume. “It is straightforward and easy,” she says. “And that is when I reach out and set up a general interview.” The 45-minute interview explores, in more depth, the candidate’s personality and work-oriented likes and dislikes. After successfully taking the Construction Safety Training System (CSTS) certification online, the person is added to

the candidate pool and Casamassima seeks out an appropriate employer. After placement, she follows up with employees at the three-week mark and every three months thereafter to make sure all is well at the workplace. Currently there are 28 youth waiting for positions and 15 employers using YEP. It has been a tough year for placements due to a weakened economy; there were nine youth placed from January to July 2016, compared to 17 during the same time frame in 2015. But Casamassima sees the situation turning around as the economy rebounds. In the meantime as she continues to use recruitment tools such as the program websites, www.yepcca.cc, and www.constructioncareers.ca, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. The program is fully funded by the CCA with no cost to youth or employers. The young person gets information, interview assistance, safety training, an employer recommendation, and even an opportunity to apply for CCA scholarships to pursue related schooling; employers get pre-screened, motivated candidates eager to learn a trade and contribute to the construction industry. The employer is asked to hire the individual for a minimum of three weeks, but in over 95 per cent of cases, employers have hired the person full time. “It is a huge win-win situation for both parties,” says Casamassima. Dave Kinley, founder and CEO of Concept Electric, is intimately familiar with the YEP on two levels - he's chaired its committee at the CCA for seven years, as well as hired candi-dates from YEP to work at his company. YEP was started in the first place to “build construction as a viable career for


FEATURE | Youth Employment Program

youth and to offset anticipated labour shortages” when baby boomers retired, he says. There have been a few changes since its inception. Initially Human Resources Canada and the Alberta Careers Program were co-sponsors of the program and the three-week initial employment stint was an unpaid one. Today, the program is totally independent and the three-week beginning phase has a paycheque attached. The CCA, through this program and in other means, is committed to engaging with junior high schools and senior high schools in the city. As a result, it has a “much broader footprint” than ever before and young people are viewing construction as a respectable and lucrative industry. Kinley has also hired candidates from the YEP to work at his company – 37, in fact - since 2007. Several, such as Owen Morris and Glenn Hogan, are still at the company. Morris was working in the parts department at a Land Rover location when a buddy mentioned work as an electrician. He thought that might be interesting and after seeing a notice for the YEP at a local career centre, he called in. “I had zero experience at that point,” he says. But after the interviews and training, he landed a job at Concept, where he has been employed for eight years. Morris also managed to snag a $500 scholarship through YEP to go back to school and now works as a journeyman electrician in the service area of the com-pany (on the morning of this interview, he had been testing fire alarms and emergency lights at a commercial facility). “I definitely wouldn’t have gotten this far in the business if not for YEP,” he says. “It provided a huge advantage for me.” His colleague, Glenn Hogan, has a similar story to share. When he was 20, he was working in a restaurant and floundering. He went online to do some research and found YEP. He selected electrical work as he thought it provided the best opportunities for advancement. “That was important to me,” he says. “YEP is a good, supportive system from start to end. It is a complete experience for young adults.”

But you can’t sit on your laurels and let the program do all the work, he warns. The program will give you the tools, but you have to “walk the path yourself.” If you are motivated, a hard worker, and dedicated to the trade, you will do well. Hogan has been with Concept for 11

years and currently works as a service electrician. “Taking that first step with YEP was a life-changing event for me,” he says, and he encourages other young people to do the same. “Look at joining a trade. Give it a shot. I am happy being an electrician.” n

Teamwork in Action

As the finishing touches begin on Brookfield Place, construction partners reflect on this stand-out project By Deb Smith Three years ago, Brookfield Place was nothing more than a gaping hole in the ground in the middle of downtown Calgary. The logistics of getting to that stage had been tough - working around existing power infrastructure, hidden tunnels, and buried basements of structures built almost 100 years earlier. But the experience and can-do attitude of EllisDon’s team pushed through, laying foundations deep in the ground to support the anticipated tallest building in Western Canada - Phase 1 of Brookfield Place, a 247-metre addition to the Calgary skyline. On May 10, 2016, crews topped out the concrete superstructure with the last lift of the core from 59th to 60th floor, and by July 7, 2016, the last signature beam was put into place by Walters Inc. with a tree strapped on the end as a symbol of new life. Other crews were working on the interior of six levels of underground parking. “We’re completing the finishing work now in the parkade,” says Joe Bechberger, senior project manager for EllisDon. “Western Electrical has been installing light fixtures while Durwest Construction Systems is well underway with the traffic topping.” Outside at ground level, working around a very congested city site, Alsa Road Construction Ltd. started installing portions of the curbs and sidewalks. Its crews completed this scope first, allowing for the subsequent installation of the exterior stone tiling by Alberta Marble & Tile (AM&T). The AM&T crew will be using several granite mixes: Jet Mist, Silver Cloud, and Mesabi black granite mined in the U.S. and manufactured in SaintSebastien, Quebec. This outdoor plaza will feature landscaped open space with tree-lined walkways and the spectacular three-storey

It is estimated that construction of Phase 1 of Brookfield Place will total 7.5 million man-hours, all working together as one complicated, effective team of know-how and integrity.

glass Pavilion. From there, two new Plus 15 bridge connections will give pedestrian access to adjacent buildings and the First Street LRT station. Seele Canada Inc. is constructing the Pavilion using a structural steel mullion system with aluminum profiles followed by unique glass units. The mullions include intricate, slender, rounded, and curved sections all to be covered with glass manufactured in China. One unique feature is that all the mechanical/electrical services are essentially con-

cealed in the steel mullions and support system. Glazing profiles include traditional flat, curved, and, in some cases, glass bent in multiple directions - possibly the first time attempted in the world. Bechberger expects the Podium, the official name of the building’s lobby, and Pavilion will be closed in by early September, allowing AM&T to finish the interior walls with two granites - Mocha Cream, mined and manufactured in Portugal, and Statuario from Italy. Flooring will also be completed at this time.

From the top of the Pavilion, the tower is a tall stretch of spectacular glazing, reflecting the surrounding city on all sides, corners curving gracefully up to its crown. The glass came from Spain to Canada by water, was manufactured in Toronto and Vancouver, and then shipped to the Calgary site. Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® installed that curtain wall, and Bechberger has nothing but praise for them. “There were challenges at the beginning; however, they collectively in-

creased production as they progressed towards the roof,” he explains. “They have a small crew, just six or eight guys and they closed in one floor every week, hitting it pretty much on time all the way. A small crane worked a floor or two ahead lifting the glass from above down to the workers where they set it in place, snapping into the previous piece. They worked that way around the floor they were on, then up to the next floor.” Once the last piece of structural steel was placed in early July, one of two tower cranes was disassembled and removed from site. On the north side of the tower, the remaining crane will finish up the crown and mechanical installations. That crown, a curved steel structure and aluminum mullion system, will receive special bent glass being fabricated over the summer. It will be a visual guard, housing enclosed, independent mechanical and electrical equipment spaces. Bechberger anticipates its completion at the end of September 2016. Meanwhile, ThyssenKrupp Elevator Canada is installing the extensive

elevator system. “The elevators have a large part in driving the schedule,” says Bechberger. “We need to get the service elevators operational in order to take down the three outside man/material hoists. Once that happens, we can fill in the gaps in the curtain wall. This is a major October milestone on this year’s schedule. ThyssenKrupp is doing a great job. They are excellent at scheduling, have completed the low-rise and by July were about 75 per cent done on the mid-rise.” There will be 30 passenger elevators, four shuttle, and four service elevators featuring some of the fastest elevator cars made, travelling at 1,200 feet per minute. The state-of-the-art Destination Dispatch System reduces lobby wait times, number of stops and overall travel time by directing passengers to the most efficient cab/route possible. Throughout, there has been extensive work going on inside the tower. Bechberger points out, “You watch a building grow for so long, and you might think it’s done when we get to the top,

but that’s just the start; the mechanical and electrical bring it all to life.” Arpi’s Industries Ltd. is handling heating and plumbing, and Western Electrical Management Ltd. is accomplishing electrical. Floor by floor, Alpine Drywall Calgary Ltd. crews are closing everything in, while the Calibre Group completes the architectural painting – basics such as columns, mechanical spaces, and washrooms. There are two washrooms on every floor and they must be 100 per cent complete along with the ceiling grid, sprinklers, etc. before the owner takes over the space. In those washrooms, Porter Tile & Marble (1991) Ltd. will install a total of 130,000 porcelain wall tiles and 15,600 floor tiles. So far, EllisDon has turned over the low-rise floors (about 23 floors) to the owner and expects to complete the mid-rise turnover by the end of September. Bechberger sees finishing details as one of the most difficult parts of any building project. “It’s a major challenge

building the shell and superstructure that encompasses the floors and spaces, but it is equally as hard getting it commissioned, operational, and functioning as a building.” He anticipates another year’s worth of work to meet the completion date of July 2017. It’s all coming together and on schedule. Bechberger attributes this success to how EllisDon is set up, ensuring everyone works together. “That’s what makes a project go well…when you have that unity, that collaborative, problem-solving mindset between all trades,” he says. As construction manager, his goal has been keeping an eye on the schedule, costs, scopes of work, and contracts, ultimately having all the paperwork/documentation in place so the team can go out and build. “The trades have been very co-operative, organized, and easy to work with - problem-solvers who take a lot of pride in their work. I’ve worked with a lot of different supers, in a lot of different places, and these here are by far some of the best. Tim Brock essentially takes care of the tower, driving the super-structure and associated trades to the roof; Keith Studer has been working on the Pavilion and the Podium areas; Matt Rondot is covering the finishes going up the tower; and Mike Horobec works and monitors the overall plan/ schedule,” he praises. “Brad Storey and Scott Thompson both retired approximately a year ago, but it was a lot of their effort and hard work that got us set up and off to the right start. They’re a major part of the reason for our success in the project, and they still keep in touch, seeing how it’s progressing.” It is estimated that construction of Phase 1 of Brookfield Place will total 7.5 million man-hours, all working together as one complicated, effective team of know-how and integrity. That’s how we get things done in Calgary, and by next year, Brookfield Place will be further proof of the excellence of our construction industry. n

REPORT | ACA

ACA Report ACA submits construction industry concerns to the WCB review panel

By Paul Verhesen, chairman of the Alberta Construction Association The Alberta Construction Association continues to make progress in advocating member needs to our partners in government and throughout the industry. With leadership from the Calgary Construction Association, ACA has carried forward the message that Alberta and our construction industry cannot prosper without market access for our petroleum products. Building on a positive meeting with Alberta Energy Minister Margaret McCuaig-Boyd, ACA called upon our partner associations at the 2016 fall meeting of the Canadian Construction Association to help build support in their communities. ACA’s message was well-received, and a task force was convened to determine next steps. Alberta’s leadership on prompt payment has also helped build momentum on the national stage. With leadership from Alberta Infrastructure, ACA was able to secure contract terms formalizing payment within 30 days, and progressive release of holdback. Canadian Construction Association is using this approach to assist its work with the federal government. On the home front, ACA has written the provincial government, municipalities, and other public sector owners asking they emulate Infrastructure’s lead. In concert with Alberta’s regional construction associations, the next step is regional workshops of contractors, owners, and the design community to explore improvements in the payment process. ACA and Alberta Infrastructure (AI) continue to work on contract terms of mutual concern. The Contract Close-Out Committee with AI is drawing to a successful close, which will see new contract language to provide clarity and line item payments for activities related to record documents and other aspects of closeout. A similar approach is under discussion for delivery of LEED items that fall within the responsibility of the contractor. Virtually every Alberta contractor and materials supplier is covered by (and funds) the Alberta Workers’ Compensation Board. When the government announced in spring 2016 that the WCB would be reviewed, ACA immediately undertook development of a submission as a priority. Despite a very compressed timetable (release of consultation documents June 6,

88

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

2016, with the deadline of submissions July 15, 2016), ACA’s submission was forwarded in early July to the review panel. ACA thanks a group of dedicated volunteers from the membership and our friends at the ITF, the employer association whose sole purpose is improving the WCB. ACA will be involved in followup consultations with the WCB Review Panel, expected to begin in fall 2016. Members can request a copy of the submission by contacting ACA (info@albertaconstruction.net). ACA recommendations and submission preamble are provided here as a quick snapshot: List of ACA recommendations include: 1. ACA recommends the board recruitment process be lengthened so that employer associations are given sufficient time to recruit candidates for consideration. 2. ACA recommends that employer reps be involved in the recruitment interviews as is currently the case with the Appeals Commission. 3. ACA recommends the current WCB Corporate Governance policy be revised to oblige that all nine of the WCB directors meet regularly with broad stakeholder groups such as the Industry Task Force (for employers) and the Labour Coalition (for labour). 4. ACA recommends the establishment of an independent Employer Appeals Office, within the Ministry of Labour, funded through an allocation of WCB premiums. 5. ACA recommends separating the Office of (worker) Appeals Advisor from the WCB, and improving the competency of these individuals. 6. ACA recommends repetitive strain injuries for older workers be treated as an occupational illness similar to hearing loss (that is, the costs be borne by the industry group as a whole rather than an individual employer). 7. ACA recommends the WCB Act should be amended to enshrine the principle that no-fault does not extend to post-incident behaviour that in effect removes the worker from the course of employment and hence entitlement to disability benefits.

8. ACA recommends that the WCB formalize the use of inperson multi-stakeholder consultation, where the anticipated change will incur costs above a threshold, for example, where costs impacting those most affected by the change are going to increase by more than five per cent. 9. ACA recommends specific policies should be identified and cited for all decisions made on claims. 10. ACA recommends that the WCB confirm the range required to maintain actuarial soundness, and then operate within that range. 11. ACA recommends that the claim be automatically assigned to the camp operator when the operator is determined to be negligent, and otherwise be assigned to the industry group rather than the individual contractor. 12. ACA recommends amending the WCB Act to eliminate the potential for litigation for owner operators where they choose to forego personal coverage, as long as their corporation has coverage. The Alberta Construction Association welcomes the opportunity to provide input to the review of the Alberta Workers’ Compensation Board. Alberta’s construction industry employs approximately one in 10 working Albertans and contributes approximately 25 per cent of WCB premiums (Source: WCB). With 3,000 member firms across Alberta, from small entrepreneurs to multinationals, union and non-union, serving all segments of the construction market, Alberta Construction Association represents the collective voice of Alberta’s nonresidential construction industry. While interprovincial comparisons need to be scrutinized to ensure comparing “apples to apples,” Alberta’s stakeholders can be justifiably proud in establishing one of the best workers’ compensation systems in Canada in terms of striking the right balance between workers and employers to ensure fair compensation, meaningful rehabilitation for an injured worker, and a sustainable and affordable workers’ compensation system:

• The second highest 2016 maximum compensation earnings (at $98,700) and the highest percentage of earnings benefits are based on (at 90 per cent), combined with the lowest 2016 average assessment rate at $1.01 (Source: Association of Workers’ Compensation Boards of Canada, 2016). The current cap of $98,700 net earnings is far higher than Alberta’s average gross wage of $58,000. The WCB Alberta formula provides for a cost of living adjustment to ensure the MIE covers the full wage of 90 per cent of workers covered in the province. • High levels of worker satisfaction with the fairness of WCB decisions (80.7 per cent for 2011, 84.3 per cent for 2012, statistic reporting changed for 2013 and 2014) (Source: Workers Compensation Board of Alberta, Annual Reports). • More than 93 per cent of injured workers achieved the fitness needed to return to work (Source: Workers Compensation Board of Alberta, 2013, 2014 Annual Reports). • More than 80 per cent of injured workers who used vocational services able to earn 75 per cent or more of their pre-accident earnings (Source: Workers Compensation Board of Alberta, 2013, 2014 Annual Reports). • A more than fully-funded system, ensuring funds available to pay the future costs of current and prior-year claims”. Beyond prompt pay and the WCB review, emerging issues for ACA and its membership include: • Adapting to carbon pricing and responding to market opportunities for renewable energy and energy efficiency programming. • Advocating for legislative protection and tools to assist employers in determining impairment and taking appropriate steps to protect their workers and the public, in the event that marijuana becomes legalized. ACA has expressed these views to the federal panel, and continues to develop understanding of the complexities in responding to this potentially significant change. n

Following the OAEC III Workshop (owners, architects, engineers and contractors) in 2015, task forces were created to focus on two areas of common interest – Effective Leadership and Embracing BIM. For the next year, committee members worked to develop course programming and, in 2016, the OAEC launched Modelling the Way: A Practical Course for Impacting Leadership, as well as Building Information Modeling (BIM) – Understand how to use Navisworks software for field co-ordination. Offered in Calgary, these two new courses provide participants with practical, how-to strategies and information, which they can then take back to their organizations and implement immediately. One Gold Seal credit is also awarded for each course completed. “From the OAEC workshop papers and evaluations, it was determined that the construction industry needed to focus additional attention around leadership and BIM,” says Dave Smith, president of the Calgary Construction Association. Debbie Hicks, president of DSH Consulting also notes, “It’s very challenging to get BIM adoption at the beginning of a project so that the model can effectively be used during construction and facilities maintenance during the life cycle of the building. The OAEC communities really need to work on this and it won’t change quickly. Also, the construction industry is very good at hard skills training, but we need to focus on the softer skills, such as honesty, authenticity, and integrity. Leadership is a very broad term, but we’re making this training more specific to leadership challenges facing the construction industry.” The pilot leadership course was offered in February 2016, with subsequent sessions held in June and September 2016. The one-day course was limited to 20 students to ensure one-on-one training time. In addition to participation by


FEATURE | OAEC Courses

members of the leadership committee, the first course attendees represented a broad cross-section of OAEC stakeholder groups, including owners who purchase construction services, City representatives, engineers, architects, University of Calgary personnel, and a number of contractors. The 2015 OAEC workshop session on “How to be Good Leaders” identified key attributes of good leaders and these qualities were highlighted in the course programming. A positive attitude, humility, honesty, and confidence is a sampling of what was identified as the key attributes of a good leader. “This course was created to address issues that are common across all four stakeholder groups,” says Colin Aitken, chair of the OAEC Leadership Committee and vice-president at Graham Construction and Engineering Inc. “Clear and honest communications is so important. A common problem at the project level is a lack of cooperation – the contractor who doesn’t do what he says he will, owners who don’t make decisions, and architects who don’t provide information on time. It works better for everyone when all stakeholders are honest about what they can and can’t do, and then deliver on their commitments.” The leadership course is delivered by Vik Maraj, renowned for his work coaching global leaders, corporations, boards, and NGOs. Clients have gone on to make a significant difference in their communities, institutions, and societies. Maraj has also taught the critical aspects of leadership, as well as hostage negotiations to Canada’s national police force. Programming for the OAEC leadership course combines Maraj’s skills as an effective coach with practical leadership strategies that are geared to those working in the construction industry. Subject matter includes covering four foundations of leadership: leadership versus management, integrity, authenticity and responsibility, and social awareness and skilled conversation. Maraj’s unorthodox approach is effective in enabling students to experience real change and the sessions require active participation by attendees.

“Assignments during the course are very hands-on, with some work done individually and some in groups. One assignment was to deal with something that each of us had put off, some personal task that we didn’t get done. Right then and there we had to phone up the appropriate person and deal with the issue,” says Aitken. “This course is particularly good for smaller companies who don’t have in-house resources for training. At Graham, we have three leadership sessions developed and delivered in-house,

but we still put some of our people in the OAEC leadership course in September [2016], because of the quality, content, and unique delivery of the course. This course is suited for any level, and can benefit anyone working in a collaborative environment.” Participants were asked to examine their own personalities, and how their personal style effects how they deal with people and situations. “I enjoyed the course because it brought you out of your comfort zone and forced you to do a bit

of soul searching,” says Tyler Bungay, president of Botting & Associates. “Construction is so vast, from engineering and construction to sales and marketing, so this course is useful to everyone in the industry. What you learn helps you to become a better leader and Vic had a different delivery method, which I found interesting and engaging.” Transparency and good communication throughout the supply chain of a project extends to the use of BIM and the opportunity for all parties to work off of accurate models. Inconsistencies in the accuracy of 3D models and the translation from 3D to 2D, increase the potential for errors, which costs a project time and money, and calls into questions the competence of construction professionals. Efforts to encourage widespread adoption of BIM, includes work by the Canada BIM Council (CanBIM), whose mission includes developing an industry consensus on BIM. The OAEC BIM task force, and subsequent course offering, were designed to address the need for a bigger uptake of BIM and standardized best practices. “In Canada, we are behind the U.S., U.K., and Singapore in developing a standard for BIM,” says Dragan Marinkovic, BIM task force committee member and BIM manager for CANA Construction Ltd. “We’re trying to start the BIM process at the beginning of a project, before the construction period starts, and bring the client, architect and structural, mechanical and electrical engineers all together. BIM can save a lot of money, because you build a model to make sure that everything fits prior to construction. You can reduce a significant percentage of material waste as well as time of labour.” Designers of 3D models can be reluctant to share what they consider proprietary material with general contractors of a project who must then create their own 3D models from 2D plans. Even when models are shared, they can lack pertinent details required by subcontractors, which stalls a project until clarifications are made. The practice of out-sourcing model building, and in some instances, to companies outside of Canada, further jeopardizes the accuracy of the 3D model, which may not adhere to local

best practices. Shared models and the release of all design information at the beginning of a project eliminate confusion, wrong information, and missed deadlines. “Very often, we discover problems in an architect’s 2D plans, which then requires changes,” says Marinkovic. “Designers, including architects and 3D modellers, need to add our 3D model element standards into their model. With this in place, we can communicate with the third-party 3D model and extract information from the model to quickly communicate with our workers in the field. Also, at least two months before construction starts, we need 100 per cent of the plans released, so that we have time to check them over. Through organizations, such as CanBIM and the BIM

task force, we are slowly progressing toward standardization of BIM processes, for better communication and understanding among different trades.” The push for BIM implementation extends to a project’s superintendents and foremen, who can use Navisworks as a tool to verify that on-site work conforms to the 3D model. “3D modelling can’t just stop at the office; it has to be accessible and useable for the people actually doing the construction,” says Cory Morrison, BIM task force committee member and BIM manager for Arpi’s Industries Ltd. “Most are familiar with constructing off of 2D plans, so it’s a different way of construction. But once superintendents and foremen become comfortable with the model, they love it. With Navisworks, you can rotate the model to

Jobs are a lot faster than they were 10 to 15 years ago, and scheduling is so important. You don't have time to go back and redo the work, and BIM helps to provide a onepass system for all trades involved.” The OAEC BIM course introduces students to Navisworks software for field co-ordination. Students learn practical tools to use BIM on construction projects, including how to merge, publish, and navigate files within Autodesk Navisworks. Geared to site superintendents, project managers, owners’ project managers, and construction field personnel, the one-day course is limited to 16 students. The course is taught by BIM specialist Carl Storms of Imaginit Technologies in Calgary. The pilot BIM course was offered in June 2016, with positive feedback from participants. The curriculum has been tweaked to ensure that the focus is on providing people with the skills needed to be proficient at navigating a model in Navisworks. Practically, this means that workers will be able to take a 3D model on an iPad and do a quality check of measurements to ensure that they match up with the model. The next BIM course is scheduled for November 24, 2016, and there are plans to offer the course twice a year in Calgary. “We plan to roll out the sessions to local associations across Canada,” says Hicks. “As BIM builds momentum, there will be more of a need for training, with some regions adopting BIM faster than others.” n

From Shovels to Towers Calgary’s condo market toughing it out

By Barb Livingstone Evolution, a multiphase condo project in the East Village, is just one example of the redevelopment boom happening in what is one of Calgary’s oldest neighbourhoods along the Bow River.

When FRAM+Slokker put shovels in the ground May 2016 in Calgary’s massive East Village redevelopment, the city’s condo market was already experiencing a drop in demand driven by a shrinking economy. But while construction cranes continue to dot the city skyline, they are a stark reflection of a multi-family housing sector that sells a majority of units well before construction even starts. Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) forecasts multi-family starts in Calgary will decline to between 5,300 to 5,700 units in 2016, compared to almost 10,637 in the peak year of 2014. However, there were 10,398 units already under construction in March

2016, all contributing to a year of growing inventory and fewer buyers. “Multi-family has more moving parts than single family,” says Richard Cho, senior market analyst for CMHC’s Prairie Region. He says with pre-sales and carry-over demand from before the full hit of the economic downturn, the multi sector wasn’t affected as early as other housing sectors. Last year, for example, despite the slowing economy, there were 8,895 units started — still considered a strong year. Fred Serrafero, vice-president of development and construction at Torontobased FRAM Building Group, says May’s

construction start on Verve — its second project in East Village, after the already completed First — came with 82 per cent of its 288 condos sold, most in 2014. Verve is slated for completion fall 2018 and “our hope is that by then, things will be a little better in Alberta,” he states. In Calgary’s condo market, the East Village project, spearheaded by Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC), is one of the biggest re-developments the city has seen and in the current downturn, one of the city’s biggest economic drivers. Almost 12,000 people are expected to eventually reside in what is Calgary’s oldest neighbourhood along the Bow River, adjacent to the down-

In April 2016, construction launched on a $500-million residential condo/ commercial development in East Village with partners, Embassy BOSA of Vancouver (already with East Village’s Fuse and Pulse condo complexes) and commercial real estate giant RioCan. Occupying a full city block, the project includes two residential towers with more than 500 condo units (called Arris) and 188,000 square feet of retail space with anchors Loblaws and Shoppers Drug Mart. Also adding to the Calgary skyline are the twin towers of The Guardian, Calgary’s tallest residential towers at 147 metres and 44 stories, constructed by general contractors Axiom Builders Inc. The two towers together will house 620 residential units, adding significantly to the population of the neighbourhood and will be a highly-visible symbol of

the urban renaissance happening in Victoria Park. While the north tower is complete, the south version, a perfect reflection of its partner, will be finished in 2016. While many condo builders are focusing this year on selling surplus inventory, some, like Embassy BOSA, are proceeding with initial stages on future projects. Already in the market with The Royal in Mount Royal, BOSA filed for a development per-mit for 700 multi-family units (including two towers of 18 and 30 storeys) Canada Lands’ Currie Barracks, in the city’s southwest core. While FRAM+Slokker has three more projects slated for East Village, including the 10-storey, 150-unit Vibe, which it hopes to launch early next year. Serrafero says the major challenge during the current economy– even when most units have been pre-sold — is finding bank financing, something that can take more than a year in Calgary, compared to three months in Toronto. The good news is construction costs have dropped, tradespeople are avail-

able, and while some discounting has been offered buyers, condo prices have not decreased substantially. Maggie Schofield, executive director of the Calgary Downtown Association, says the core’s residential market is an increasingly important support for downtown businesses, already affected by a huge increase in office vacancies and a drop in employment and retail spending. “It is easier to draw people if they are right there,” she says, particularly with the growth of East Village, which markets the downtown as residents’ “living room” with its cafes, restaurants, bars and arts, and culture venues. Schofield recalls the 1980s economic downturn where commercial and residential construction cranes disappeared in the core. The difference with this economy, she says, is interest rates are not 17 per cent, and for those with jobs, it is an excellent time to jump into the housing market. The Beltline, just south of downtown, continues its extensive, multi-family de-

The company has purchased two additional sites in the neighbourhood, and is proceeding with preliminary permit and archi-

tectural plans for mixed-use developments, in preparation for the economy’s revival. “Whether that is one year, or three, or four, we want to be first to market,” says Robert Duteau, senior vice-president of development for Grosvenor Americas. “We will be watching the economy and

consumer confidence because the trend of urbanization in Calgary is only at its beginning. More and more people want to live in the inner core, and not be driving the Deerfoot every day.” Grosvenor also has Avenue, one of the few condo towers being built in the city’s west end, across the river from Kensington. The first 198-unit tower is 78 per cent sold. That project — with a strong component of downsizers not as affected by the downturn — has partnered with Calgary realtors, to ensure Avenue is in their mix. It has worked as 50 per cent of sales have been through realtors. Qualex-Landmark, with a $370-million investment and seven land parcels in the Beltline, has, over its 14 years in the neighbourhood, experienced two major economic swings.

It is still seeing a steady flow of visitors, continued sales (seven within a month) and record low cancellations. “In our view, this sales activity is history repeating itself: what goes up, comes down and then goes back up again,” says Mahboubi. In Calgary’s apartment condo market the burgeoning inventory of available units not only means a buyers’ market, but a renters’ one as well. CMHC predicts the 30 per cent of apartment condos traditionally bought by investors to offer for rent, will combine with new rental-only units being built (1,943 units were under construction in March 2016). Versus is a new apartment development by WAM Development Group currently under construction by general contractor Ledcor. Located at the western end of the vibrant mixed-use Beltline area of Calgary, the site is ideally located to offer residents access to the best urban amenities the city has to offer. The project will feature 444 rental residential suites in two towers (17 and 34 storeys in height) with complementary ground and second floor commercial space, set to be completed in late 2016. Projects like this will help to push the vacancy rate to seven per cent by October – although experts say that rate was already in place this summer – and push rents down. That new vacancy rate compares to 5.3 per cent in October 2015, and 1.4 per cent in fall 2014. n

Supporting Today’s Students for Tomorrow’s Employers The CCA creates new scholarships for SAIT and the University of Calgary By Deb Smith

Danielle Lambert receiving one of six $2,500 scholarships for CPM students at SAIT from Todd Poulsen, president of Elan Construction Limited and chairman of the CCA Education Fund committee.

The Calgary Construction Association (CCA) has made a $50,000 donation to the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) in recognition of the school’s 2016 centennial anniversary. Matched by the provincial government’s Access to the Future Fund, the donation will establish two annual scholarships in perpetuity of $1,750 for two students entering the SAIT School of Construction in the first year of a degree, diploma, or apprenticeship program. The criteria for the award is based on 50 per cent financial need, 20 per cent academic achievement, and 30 per cent leadership. Students also must be Canadian citizens and/or landed immigrants, and preference is given to Alberta students. In recognition that women make up 15 per cent of Canada’s construction workforce, but only two per cent of all tradespeople, the CCA has stipulated the annual scholarships go to one male and one female beginning their training in the industry. To further their commitment to education in construction trades the CCA has also provided six $2,500 scholarships for University of Calgary engineering students through the CCA Education Fund. The CCA established its Education Fund in 2001 as part of

106

its ongoing commitment to education within the construction industry. Since its creation the Education Fund has raised in excess of over one million dollars - $719,000 of which has been raised through the CCA’s annual Education Fund Golf tournament. The 2016 golf event alone raised $53,000 to further advance scholarship opportunities through the fund. Today, the Education Fund provides scholarships and awards for CCA member firm employees, dependents, and students every year, as well as support for high school and post secondary trades programs. Examples of these are outlined below: • In their fourth year, SAIT’s BSc. Construction Project Management (CPM) students complete a “Capstone Project” to demonstrate the skills and knowledge they have acquired through their degree. The CCA Education Fund awards six $2,500 annual scholarships in recognition of these achievements. Although not directly as part of the CCA Education Fund program, CCA member firms support the CPM students with internships after their third year in the degree program. • A one-time contribution of $50,000 for two tool cribs including tools - $25,000 each for the Calgary Board of

This gives new students their own PPE, creating a culture of safety at the start of their careers in construction. “The CCA fundraises every year to fulfil our commitment to the Education Fund,” explains Todd Poulsen, president of Elan Construction Limited and the chairman of the CCA Education Fund committee. One hundred per cent of what the CCA Education Fund raises goes to supportive industries through scholarships and

bursaries and to help youth pursue their career in construction. A large part of that funding goes to benefit SAIT’s construction industry students. The SAIT School of Construction primarily resides in the 740,000-square-foot Trades and Technology complex that was built in 2012 at a cost of $400 million. In order to meet modern construction needs, the school offers more than 20 full-time programs which range from degrees, diplomas, certificates, and apprenticeships. As a measure of the success of these programs, recent grads achieved a 96-per cent employment rate in the industry. SAIT has been an active force within Calgary’s construction industry since it opened its doors in 1916, committed to handson, skills-oriented training. It was the first publicly-funded technology institute in Canada, specifically designed to meet the practical needs of employers. That philosophy continues today as expert advisory committees continuously review and update its programs to reflect the changing needs within industry. As Scott MacPherson, dean of SAIT’s School of Construction, explains, “We don’t determine what the students learn; industry tells us what it is that they need the students to learn.” Since the CCA was established in 1944, its members have been working with SAIT to bring the most skilled and highly trained workforce to the Calgary construction industry. “We’re strong supporters of each other,” says Poulsen. “SAIT enables tradespeople coming into our industry to realize their goals, whether it is to become journeypersons or architectural and civil engineer technologists or construction management degree holders.” Not only is it vital to attract young people into the construction industry in order to fulfil future labour market challenges, it also benefits all to ensure the upcoming workforce is the best it can be. This recent generous donation by the CCA to support and recognize the contribution SAIT has made to the construction industry for a century is one more way the association strives to carry forward the excellent reputation of Calgary’s tradespeople and the CCA membership. n

Go With the Flow

New interchanges improve local and regional traffic in Calgary By Lisa Fattori

Mac Logan, general manager of the Transportation Department for the City of Calgary, states that one of the goals of the City’s infrastructure projects is to foster economic growth.

Whether its by transit, car, or even bicycle, the City of Calgary is ensuring it’s citizens get to where they want to go in a timely and safe manner. It’s a promise that can be seen in the City’s current and future budget. The projection for total city infrastructure spending in the next three years is $1.5 billion, which is a 25 per cent increase in the City’s record year of spending. Unlike previous years, however, the strategy is to pool resources to support a variety of infrastructure needs in a particular neighbourhood rather than to fund individual departments. “When we look at infrastructure investment in Calgary, there are three themes emerging: transportation and logistics;

110

sports and entertainment; and health and education,” says Mac Logan, general manager of the Transportation Department for the City of Calgary. “Historically, transportation infrastructure projects are planned based on goods movement and traffic growth. Next year, we will be combining the list of all municipal infrastructure projects to target specific areas in Calgary. It’s good to get someone from the suburbs to downtown faster, but that doesn’t create a job. The goal is to pool our projects and to cluster investment to foster economic growth.” New overpass projects in Calgary are aiding in that growth, improving the efficiency of moving goods and people, all while enhancing safety for pedestrians,

cyclists, and motorists. Construction is currently underway at three key intersections: Macleod Trail and 162 Avenue South, Glenmore Trail and Ogden Road S.E., and the TransCanada Highway (TCH) and Sarcee Trail. Constructed by Graham Infrastructure, the interchange projects improve traffic flow through the elimination of traffic lights, while roadway ramp improvements increase capacity to accommodate more vehicles, particularly in growth areas. The multi-phase projects are in various stages of construction, with completion expected from August to December in 2017. The Macleod Trail/162 Avenue South Interchange is a $61-million project that has been designed to make Macleod Trail

a free-flow gateway to the city from the provincial highway network. Over top of Macleod Trail, two interchange bridges accommodate east and west traffic on 162 Avenue and Sun Valley Boulevard. The scope of work includes intersection improvements at Shawville Boulevard and 162 Avenue, as well as a basketweave structure to accommodate access for southbound traffic to the shopping centre. The design of the interchange over Macleod Trail is a Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI), which is the first DDI constructed in Canada. “The nice thing about this design is that you have greater capacity and shorter signal cycle times for turning movements when entering and exiting 162 Avenue,” says Bryce McKay, senior project manager with Graham Infrastructure. “For left turns exiting 162 Avenue, motorists only pass through one signal instead of two signals with convention signalized diamond interchanges. Eastbound traffic temporarily crosses over to the traditional westbound lanes and vice versa. This allows for two phase signals and significantly improves traffic operations, compared to a standard diamond interchange.” The two separate overpass bridges are mirror images and have a span of 52 metres. Construction of the DDI is divided into nine phases, beginning with the construction of the south bridge. In fall 2016, traffic will be moved to the newly built south alignment, and construction will begin on the north bridge. The old 162 Avenue at-grade roadway, where it intersects Macleod Trail, will be excavated and replaced with bulk fill to build up the new roadway elevation. “The final stage will require a larger shutdown of the complete intersection, so that we can switch lane alignments,” says Brad Harder, project manager for Graham Infrastructure. “This will be a two-to-three-day process over a weekend, in mid-August [2017]. The project will then just require final landscaping, before the interchange is officially open in September [2017].” Another of Calgary’s busiest corridors is Glenmore Trail, between Barlow Trail and Ogden Road.

lights at Ogden Road, create bottlenecks for both commuters and commercial vehicles, with wait times at railway stops, sometimes as long as 30 minutes. With the future LRT line slated to run west of the CPR tracks, traffic flow would be further interrupted, with traffic stopping every five minutes during rush hour. The Glenmore Trail and Ogden Road

S.E. Interchange will create a free-flow roadway between Barlow Trail and 18 Street S.E. The $60.3-million improvements include a new roadway on Glenmore Trail between Ogden Road and Barlow Trail; a new bridge over the CPR and CNR tracks, the WH Canal, and the future Southeast LRT tracks; and a new interchange at Glenmore Trail and Ogden

Road. In addition, Shepard Road, south of Glenmore Trail, has been replaced by a new roadway at 26 Street, which will connect to Ogden Road. Eastbound Glenmore Trail, from 18 Street to Ogden Road will increase from two to three lanes, while the westbound carriage will be expanded to three lanes from the WH Canal to 18 Street. Improvements on Glenmore Trail occupy a 2.8-kilometre stretch of roadway. The Ogden Road structure has a span of 66 metres, and the WH Canal bridge spans 124 metres. The distance between the two bridges is approximately 300 metres. This section has been completely filled in with 160,000 cubic metres of earth to raise the grade so that it is even with the two bridges. The bridges are being constructed using a combination of black, galvanized, and stainless steel. Typically, bridge surfaces are finished in galvanized steel, but for this project, the more durable and corrosion-resistant stainless steel is installed on the deck. “One of the biggest challenges was the construction of the bridge over the canal and tracks, because we had three different stakeholders all in one area,” says Tyler Krug-Wilson, project manager for Graham Infrastructure. “We had a very tight timeline, from mid-October to April [2016], to fill in the canal and create a working platform to build the bridge’s piers and girders. Also, there are huge traffic volumes in this area, which requires various stages of detours, to minimize disruption and keep traffic flowing.”

Improvements to the TCH and Sarcee Trail interchange is a joint project between the City of Calgary and developer Trinity Development Group. The goal is to separate the higher-volume commuter traffic from the local traffic that needs to access adjacent communities, including the new Trinity Hills development southwest of the interchange. The improvements will increase safety for drivers by eliminating conflict points. Cyclists and pedestrians will also enjoy enhanced safety with the inclusion of a pedestrian underpass from Wilson Gardens to the Trinity Hills pathway system. The $30-million joint project is fairly unique in that approximately 75 per cent of the funding is provided by Trinity Development Group. “Having a developer employ the contractor and fund the majority of an infrastructure project is relatively new for the City of Calgary,” says Jayson Veldhoen, operations manager, regional civil-Calgary, for Graham Infrastructure. “As Calgary grew drastically over the past 20 years, there was a lot of development along the highways, and it was a challenge to get proper interchanges constructed. In the last 10 years, as Calgary’s population surpassed one million people, there has been a lot of pressure for developers to share the costs. Now, the City is making it a condition for Land Use that the infrastructure servicing a new development has to be in place. Raising the bar benefits the City, current residents and future residents of new developments.” The majority of work is to provide access to the Trinity Hills development, and at the same time, there are improvements to TCH on and off ramps to improve the flow of traffic. Other work includes a new east bridge and a new west bridge on Sarcee Trail, to allow for free flow traffic, while incorporating a roundabout for access to the Trinity Hills development. There are two new storm water management facilities, underground utilities, MSE retaining walls, and a new pathway connection via the pedestrian underpass. “The roundabout keeps traffic flowing without the need for lights,” says Edgar Morais, project manager for Graham Infrastructure. “It gives you access to Trinity Hills development and Wilson Gardens residential area, as well as easy access to

MSE retaining walls are required to accommodate the pathways and pedestrian underpass into the interchange.” The new TCH/Sarcee Trail interchange not only improves local and regional connections, but it also makes a key contribution to Calgary’s overall transportation network. The pedestrian underpass enables cyclists and pedestrians to safety cross Sarcee Trail and the new route will eventually tie in with the city’s pathway system. The interchange will also be an important link in maintaining the efficiency of free-flow traffic coming off of the Calgary Ring Road. “This interchange will take a huge volume of traffic from the Southwest Calgary Ring Road, which will be completed in 2021,” Veldhoen says. “The last segment is the West Calgary Ring Road, and until this portion is completed, TCH and Sarcee Trail will be a crucial link.” The City of Calgary maintains a 10-year capital program that is updated every four years. Transportation infrastructure projects fall within four areas: mobility hubs and transit corridors; goods move-

ment and traffic growth; transportation network optimization, which includes traffic signals and noise barriers; and lifecycle and asset management. Within the City’s 2015-2024 transportation infrastructure investment plan, Investing in Mobility, there are 29 projects identified that require $762 million in funding. Seventeen of those projects have received funding and the remaining candidates will move up the list of priorities, as funding becomes available. Calgary Transit is also pursuing the start of a new LRT line, the Green Line, which is a project to begin within five years, with a first phase of $4.5-billion investment. Upcoming projects include the construction of five connecting roads from the South West Ring Road to the city. “The North East and South East sections are finished and the Province has committed to having the Ring Road open by 2021,” says the City’s Mac Logan. “There is over $100 million worth of work on the City’s side to build those connecting roads. One is almost complete and one or two a year will be constructed until 2020.” n

Playtime in Rocky Ridge and Seton Two of Calgary’s newest rec centres offer up ample amenities and striking designs

By Colleen Biondi

The design of Rocky Ridge Recreation Facility is intended to mimic the natural surroundings of the area with a low-rise look of structural waves and undulations to match the local landscape.

In short order, two of Calgary’s growing neighbourhoods – Rocky Ridge in the city’s northwest and Seton in the deep south - will welcome state-of-the-art, multi-purpose recreation centres. When completed, in 2017 and 2018 respectively, they will be hubs for health, wellness, creativity, and connectivity. The two facilities represent approximately 80 per cent of a $480-million project budget as part of the City of Calgary’s

investment to improve the availability of recreation opportunities in underserved areas of Calgary. Remington YMCA in Quarry Park and the Great Plains Recreation Facility - both in the southeast opened to the public earlier in 2016. The Rocky Ridge Recreation Facility will be a 284,000-square-foot facility located in a park between a natural hill and a reconstructed wetland area, where there are scenic views of both cityscape

and the mountains. Amenities will include competition and leisure pools, a wave system and water slide, two ice rinks, three gyms, a fitness centre, aerobic studios, and walking and running tracks. There will be child-minding and art studio spaces, a Calgary Public Library, as well as an outdoor basketball court, skateboard park, and outlook structures. The City-owned facility will be operated by YMCA Calgary.

The interior of the Rocky Ridge Recreation Facility features big, bright glulam beams made from Douglas fir and shipped in from Penticton, British Columbia adding to the impressive aesthetic of the 284,000-square-foot facility.

Seton Recreation Facility’s design features exposed structural steel elements, large trusses, and sparkly, tile-like panels, along with large atriums and clear storage spaces, which at night, will allow viewers to see through the building.

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

The construction crew broke ground on this civic venture in February 2015, explains Trevor O’Brien, senior project manager with PCL Construction. To date, the structure is wrapped up and the envelope is in full swing. They are working on drywall, masonry, and electrical rough-in duties. The finishes will be next and will be tackled once the relevant sections are watertight. “We’ve got a lot of real estate out here and a lot of space to fill,” he adds. And to do that work, O’Brien is relying on the many trade contractors on-site each and every day. Peak production is underway with a site workforce of over 200. One unique aspect of the building is its design, which is intended to mimic the natural surroundings of the area. Picture a low-rise look, with structural waves and undulations to match the local landscape. So, a curvy roof made of glued laminated timbers; an outside clad in brass patina to look like and blend in with native grasses; walls which curve in elevation to the roof to form the parapets. “The glulams are at different elevations and are striking,” says O’Brien. “From anywhere in the building they are big, bright pieces of lumber.” Due to the challenge of such a “curvaceous” layout, O’Brien and his team approached the task in two specific ways. First, they used a virtual construction process using 3D technology to create the building digitally. Second, they built a life-sized mock-up of the glulam-steel connection and parapet and built that in the field. “This was a huge step in making sure we understood the complexity and the sequencing and to help plan out the build. It worked quite well.” Indeed, neither the work nor the complexities are daunting to O’Brien, who is on target for the project’s time frame and budget. “I am fortunate to be working with such a talented team. Everyone is committed to the vision.” At the Seton Recreation Facility site, the team working with John Preston, senior project manager with Bird Construction and project manager on the job, is also committed to building a firstrate product.


FEATURE | Recreation Centres

This 330,000-square-foot facility is being built behind South Health Campus and will butt up against a future LRT station and a high school. The crew broke ground in March 2016. Similar to Rocky Ridge, Seton also features a mix of leisure, sports, arts, cultural, recreational, and community amenities, including a community library, performance theatre, and youth centre. Seton’s water park area also features a “wave runner” for surfing enthusiasts. The “articulated” exterior of this building features exposed structural steel elements and large trusses. It is a clean-looking design which uses sparkly, tile-like panels. The colour scheme – although not totally nailed down – will involve a variegated, grey palette. Inside, there are large atriums and clear storage spaces, as well as efficient LED lighting. “At night, it will be exquisite,” says Preston. “You’ll be able to see through the building.” As with any project, there have been some challenges since construction began, including the excessive rain that characterized the 2016 summer season. Concurrent projects, such as the start of the construction for the high school, will pose additional logistical challenges and require coordinating finesse from both project teams. Despite requiring some extra thought and efforts, Preston is optimistic the finished product will be well worth it. He and his team are proud of working on a project that will be used and enjoyed by many and will have a long shelf life. Plus, they have an additional feather in their cap – this project has received a Gold Seal Certification (GSC) designation. This means the staff working on it have met a national standard of excellence. “Bird has been instrumental in keeping the Gold Seal Program front and centre. Investing in our people pays dividends for their own self-worth, for the company and its projects.” The Gold Seal Program was created about 25 years ago by the Canadian Construction Association, explains Kees Cusveller, national chairperson for the program and vice-president of alternative projects with Graham Con-

Like many industries, Calgary’s institutional, commercial, and industrial construction sectors face the continuing retirement of many of its baby boomer-generation leaders. That is one reason, says Avree Bujaczek, a 28-yearold field coordinator at PCL, there is a need for a resource to help young professionals to “act as a sponge” and tap into that professional experience, and to strengthen their own leadership capabilities. “Some of these people have 40 years in the industry and it is unlikely we will be able to find that again,” says the secretary-treasurer of the new committee. YCLC was officially launched in March 2016, as a standing committee of the CCA. The new committee members worked hard in the early stages to establish their mission and create clarity around the purpose of the group. The YCLC felt with a clear vision of what they stood for would enable them to remain focused on their goals and also provide the industry with an understanding of their purpose. The mission is to “enhance the industry by providing a sustainable platform for Calgary’s Young Construction Leaders to build relationships, exchange ideas, and create community through social, educational, and outreach initiatives.” YCLC will work on those three defined pillars – social, education, and outreach – with industry members who are 35 and under, and whose em-

ployers are members of the CCA. Committee executive includes a chair, vicechair, secretary-treasurer, past chair (in coming years), and both a CCA staff and board of directors’ liaison. Teed has been on the CCA board of directors for two years, and became chair of YCLC. “I believe it is something that can have a real impact,” he says. Already, he says, the voice of the next generation is being heard in its call for increased collaboration — less work silos and more teamwork on projects — and increased use of technology, for efficiencies. He also says the committee will be involved in recruitment of young people into the industry by challenging stereotypes. “You are not putting your personal safety at risk – this is a very safe industry, it is not just for men, and your career options are not limited to the trades,” says Teed, citing the diversity of careers, from skilled trades, to project management, to finance, to marketing, to engineering, and architecture. Bujaczek, who, prior to taking SAIT’s Bachelor of Science in Construction Project Management, worked in Saskatchewan’s geo-technical field, says it was at SAIT she joined committees connecting students with industry. “It was getting involved and seeing the opportunities out there that was exciting.” She is also, through the CCA, involved in promoting the industry to young women, and says the new committee hopes to speak in high schools to make all students aware of the breadth of the industry.

Calgary has established the first lean CoP where people can gather, learn, connect and explore the ramifications of lean principles both for their own organizations and the larger industry.

Tyler Bungay, president of mechanical contracting company Botting and Associates, is the board of directors’ liaison for YCLC. His 17-year path to leadership at Botting began when he joined Calgary’s construction industry at age 21. He says his journey was aided by involvement in CCA, where he has been on the board since 2009. “I got involved as a young guy, went and participated wherever I could. It’s a base for you to grow,” he explains. Bungay says the new committee’s big picture is to help young members of the industry gain experience from others, and from the industry as a whole, beyond just their particular discipline. He adds as the older generation in the industry steps back, there is the opportunity for a younger generation to step forward. “Over the past few years and over the next decade, there will be a big generational change and the question is, how do we turn the enthusiastic younger generation into the leaders of tomorrow?” questions Bungay. Bungay, who led the CCA committee that framed terms of reference and structure for YCLC, says the industry has been searching for ways to grow leadership in the younger generation and the younger generation has been looking for opportunities to get into senior positions. The CCA listened to the two voices of its membership, and knew it needed to fill the hole. Amy Smith, director of operations for CCA, sits as the staff liaison on the young leaders committee.

Varco Pruden Buildings’ Open Web Truss Framing

A CLEAR ADVANTAGE IN COMMERCIAL & INDUSTRIAL FACILITIES Building Efficiency

Engineered and built to carry heavy roof loads more economically than other framing options. VP’s Open Web truss frames are ideal for building uses such as arenas, hangars, manufacturing and warehouse facilities. Plus VP’s use of optimized design and recycled steel will contribute to your sustainable building objectives.

Architectural Appeal

Open Web trusses give building interiors an attractive, open structural appearance. The latticed design of the rafter allows building mechanicals and duct work to be located within the web, providing for more clearance beneath the rafter. The open web frame design allows for better light distribution and air circulation helps to make the building more efficient.

Faster Construction

Open Web frames are relatively light compared to alternatives, allowing easier lifting and bolt-up in the field. When projects are erected with supersets (bays assembled on the ground then lifted into place) these light but rigid assemblies can be erected faster and safer. Varco Pruden Buildings is a recognized leader in providing quality steel building systems throughout North America. Open web framing is one of the unique building solutions available through Varco Pruden Builders. Trusted Since 1948

ensure YCLC would be an effective, professional, networking group that would enhance the overall construction community. “There is a lot of talent and this is going to be a group that will help recruit more youth to the industry,” she explains. “We also needed a means to connect to the U35 community. Up until now, we see a lot of industry leaders and senior management personnel involved with the CCA or attending association events, but there is a gap to their younger employees. With the establishment of the YCL community, we are looking to connect with and grow a network of the younger generation working in construction.” The committee has brainstormed ideas on how to connect with young members of the industry and will also focus on technology – how to both advance industry practices and increase its social media presence on platforms like Twitter and Instagram. In terms of engaging young industry members, YCLC has begun by incorporating their presence at some of CCA’s signature events to generate awareness and engagement. It is also looking at crossfunctional mentoring and seminars with keynote speakers who young leaders can learn from and be inspired by. And the outreach pillar, says Bungay, reflects the younger generation’s appreciation of corporate social responsibility. “They know the construction association is a strong part of the community and is helping people and giving back. But, as a whole, we could do more. We have a huge footprint in Calgary and young people want to be part of something bigger than just a 9-to-5 job.” Bungay says he continues to be impressed by the next generation of leaders – “with an abundance of youthful energy and the desire to run with it. Passion, drive, and ambition are important no matter what industry you are part of.” Follow the new committee @YCL_Calgary on Twitter or go to www.yclcalgary.com to learn more. n

There’s been a quiet but powerful movement underfoot in the Canadian construction industry. To date, it’s mainly been spoken about in back offices or behind closed doors. But its story is starting to be told and it’s getting louder and louder in each telling. Corporate social responsibility (CSR) has come to the forefront and those companies that are embracing it and calling it their own are reaping the rewards – from all their stakeholders. Defining CSR “CSR encompasses not only what companies do with their profits but also how they make them,” states a Brantford Consulting Report entitled Corporate Social Responsibility: State of Play in the Construction Industry. “It goes beyond philanthropy and compliance and addresses how companies manage their economic, social, and environmental impacts, as well as their relationships in all key spheres of influence: the workplace; the

marketplace; the supply chain; the community; and the public policy realm.” The report goes on to state that construction in Canada is a $171-billion industry that employs 1.24 million people. Global construction market forecasts, states the report, are expected to grow by over 70 per cent by 2025. According to Nielsen’s 2015 Global CSR survey, 66 per cent of global respondents said they are willing to pay extra for sustainable goods – an increase from 55 per cent in 2014 and 50 per cent in 2013. The survey states that millennials are the most willing to pay extra, with almost three out of four respondents (73 per cent) on board – up from approximately 50 per cent in 2014. The rise in percentage of respondents under 20 was also apparent, with 55 per cent of total respondents in 2014 versus 72 per cent in 2015. “Brands that establish a reputation for social responsibility and environmental stewardship among today’s youngest consumers have an opportunity to not only grow market share but build loyalty among the power-spending millennials of tomorrow, too,” says Grace Farraj, senior vice-president of Public Development & Sustainability for Nielsen. On the front lines The Canadian Construction Association (CdnCA) created a CSR task force two years ago. Its members have been diligently working away to raise awareness of CSR within the industry and to better equip its members with the expertise they need to embrace it. “There really wasn’t a resource available for those construction companies that wanted to explore CSR,” explains Stephen Coote, president of Group 92 Mechanical Inc., and chair of the CdnCA CSR Task Force. “We felt there was a real gap there and an opportunity to educate our members.” The CSR Task Force has recently been given the funding to move ahead with a CSR “How-To Guide” for members, which is anticipated to be released in June 2017. “CSR is not a new concept,” explains Coote. “It’s been around for over 25 years. The guide will provide members with an opportunity to get in front of it.”

According to Coote, many companies (CdnCA members included) view CSR as another cost of doing business when, in fact, it’s been known to help generate business and increase profits. “CSR is not about giving money to the community,” says Coote. “It’s about doing the right thing and looking at ways to engage all the stakeholders in the process.” That being said, it does have its advantages. Coote speaks first-hand of a recent bid on the design/build construction of a new community centre.

“Each of us asked ourselves what we could do to gain an advantage and differentiate ourselves,” he recalls. “We not only looked at ways to reduce waste and recycle but also for ways to engage the community. We came up with a proposal to offer some education at the local school within their existing construction program. Our thoughts were that we could engage the kids of the community during construction and maybe they would be less apt to vandalize the building after it was done, that it would

give them a sense of ownership. And we thought we could use the opportunity to actually explain the construction process to the kids as it progressed. It would also serve as another way to introduce them to construction careers.” Group 92 won the bid. The aforementioned Brantwood Consulting report noted many benefits in having a sound CSR policy. Among them are stronger financial performance and profitability through operational efficiency gains; improved relations with the investment community and better access to capital; enhanced employee relations; stronger relationships with communities and enhanced license to operate; and improved reputation and branding. The report quotes that companies with high employee engagement, for example, had a 19-per cent increase in operating income and almost 28-per cent growth in earnings per share. By comparison, those companies with low levels of engagement experienced a 32per cent drop in operating income and an 11-per cent decline in earnings per share. Loud and clear In helping to spread the word about CSR, Coote often finds himself asked for clarification from those companies that are already investing financially in their communities. “I try to tell them that quite honestly, most of them are already doing CSR, but that they’re framing it differently,” he says. “The construction industry has tended to stay out of the limelight when it comes to these sort of things. We don’t like to toot our own horn. The problem is that we see CSR creeping into procurement. Municipalities are starting to ask for a company’s CSR policy on their tenders. For some companies, it’s really just a matter of shaping things differently. But the point is that we want our members to get out in front of it and, if they’re asked, they can respond with an understanding of CSR and will be equipped with the right tools to manage it.” One individual who had a bit of a tough time adjusting to being vocal

about his company’s CSR activities is Bob Robinson, president and CEO of Westcor Construction. “One of the things that strikes me about CSR is that, traditionally, people have done that kind of stuff but they have done it quietly,” he explains. “I kept having employees, especially the younger ones, asking me why we aren’t talking about the things we’re doing. Getting used to shouting it from the mountain top, through Twitter and our website, involved a bit of discomfort on my part. But having our people thank me for doing things on their behalf made it a bit easier. I truly believe that it’s important for people to know about it.” According to Robinson, being outspoken about your company’s activities accomplishes two very important things. One, it challenges other people/ firms to do the same – or better. And two, it’s good for your employees because they really do want to know what their company is doing on their behalf. Westcor is fortunate in that CSR was embedded in the company’s culture right from the getgo of its founding in 2003. The company’s core values (such as integrity, accountability, professionalism, collaboration, innovation, helping others, etc.) pretty much aligned with what Robinson calls the “four pillars” of CSR: ethics; health and safety; environment; and valuing partnerships throughout the supply chain. “When those core values become embedded in the company’s culture, it drives everything. For us, the terminology came after,” says Robinson. “We were doing the CSR things but just didn’t know what it was called.” Westcor’s CSR initiatives are woven into the company’s everyday culture from supplying a pallet of drinking water to the homeless on an unseasonably hot Calgary day, to employees setting up numerous Westcor team challenges that result in donations to important charities. Some are more time consuming, such hosting an official practice tender closing for SAIT students which takes hours of the company’s estimating team’s time to organize, and some are outside of office hours. And although it sometimes does cost money, Robinson

emphasizes it’s all well worth the price. “Cost does play a role in CSR,” he states. “But, interestingly, there are a lot of things you can do that aren’t costly. And those things that do cost money aren’t really hard decisions because sometimes, you just have to do the right thing.” Community care Doing the right thing may also be a matter of going on a bit of a voyage of discovery to see how you can help with-

in the community. Late in 2015, several individuals took part in the International Day of Persons with Disabilities to gain a first-hand look at what it meant to live in Calgary as a person with disabilities. Calgary Construction Association President Dave Smith found himself in a wheelchair for the experience, while representatives from the City of Calgary and non-profit organizations wore earmuffs to simulate being deaf or blindfolds to simulate being blind.

Smith noted how the city of Calgary, although very proactive in providing accessibility to all, still offers some day-to-day challenges that most people aren’t aware of. His new perspective revealed how difficult it can be to board an LRT car from the station platform because the small front wheels of the wheelchair became lodged between the platform and the LRT car. Fortunately, Smith managed to maneuver through the difficulties – thanks to the kindness of locals who were willing to assist in lifting the wheelchair to the LRT car.

As a result of his experience that day, Smith met with Kent Hehr, the new Liberal Member of Parliament. Smith has also vowed to help create an environment of greater accessibility for all Calgarians. The CCA will be working with owners, architects, engineers, contractors, CCA members, and the City of Calgary to develop a best practices guide for greater accessibility for individuals with disabilities within Calgary. In September 2016, the City of Calgary updated their Access Design Standards.

These standards enhance accessibility by mandating design measures that exceed the Alberta Building Code requirements, and are required to be incorporated into the design and construction of all new buildings constructed on City-owned land, spaces leased by the City in buildings that are not on City-owned land, and City renovation projects. These updates are intended to help create an inclusive society, where the built environment is useable, functional, and accessible to everyone. Major updates address mobility design, such as parking within 50 metres of an entrance and power door operators for barrier-free bathrooms; vision accessibility including service animal relieving areas and signage requirements for rooms within City buildings; and hearing accessibility which includes assisted listening system at information counters and more descriptive signage for assisted listening systems. Building recognition The task of developing a CSR policy does not have to be a complicated one. Robinson identifies two clear paths forward. “The first avenue is to sit down and answer the ‘why’ of why you’re in business,” he says. “You need to explore what your core values are. If those values align with CSR, then the rest is easy. The second avenue to sit down and draft a code of ethics. But you need to engage everyone in its development. CSR is a high priority for the youth, so you definitely need them to be at the table.” According to Robinson, it’s worth the effort to develop a CSR policy. “Those companies that don’t actively embrace some form of CSR are going to lose employees, certainly the millennials,” he concludes. “More and more, the millennials are the ones driving this. And those who aren’t millennials, but who have an open mind, are very interested in learning more about it. There is no doubt that genuine CSR can be a huge differentiator in today’s market.” n

FEATURE | Calgary Airport Expansion

From Ground to Air

The YYC International Facilities Project is ready for take off By Deb Smith

The YYC Calgary Airport Authority’s Airport Development Program consists of two major projects: Canada’s longest 14,000-foot parallel runway, which opened in June 2014, and a major terminal expansion, doubling the footprint of the existing airport terminal, which opened in October 2016.

Over 100 years ago, Calgary’s airport was nothing more than a runway in a field 10 kilometres outside city limits. As part of the World War II effort, it added four runways and five wartime hangers. Growing alongside the city of Calgary, what is now Calgary International Airport has become an important transportation hub with traffic continuing to rise despite the current economic turndown. Last year 15.48 million passengers travelled through YYC – a 1.4 per cent increase from 2014. And for many years the airport has been experiencing record growth, nearly doubling in passenger numbers over the last 10 years. Looking ahead to accommodate future growth, The Calgary Airport Authority undertook the Airport Development Program which consists of two major projects: Canada’s longest 14,000-foot parallel runway, which opened in June 2014, and a major terminal expansion, doubling

142

the footprint of the existing airport terminal, which is set to open its doors on October 31, 2016, and includes terminal connectivity projects focused on providing infrastructure and systems to connect passengers and baggage between the new international terminal and the existing terminal. EllisDon Construction Services Inc. is the construction manager for the new five-level terminal, the structure/shell for an on-site Marriott Hotel, built directly between the two terminals, as well as the related terminal connectivity projects. EllisDon also completed the hotel’s interior fit-out in time for its September 2016 opening. The new terminal has 25 passengerboarding bridges configured for Multiple Aircraft Ramp Systems (MARS)–a state-ofthe-art system maximizing parking space on the tarmac. Multi-headed aerobridges

will accommodate large wide body aircraft with multiple entry/exit doors, while each head can individually service single-entry, smaller aircraft. The result is a flexible system designed for changing demands in aircraft traffic and technology. International and U.S.-destined travellers will have their own respective Departures Halls where they can relax and enjoy 50 new shops and service locations. Passengers can shop and dine, while they wait to board their aircraft. Beneath the terminal building, 581 vertical geothermal wells at a depth of 150 metres will heat and cool the large space through 620 kilometres of in-floor radiant tubing, while co-generation heat and power units supply any remaining heating needs. Marco Mejia, vice-president of Planning and Engineering for The Calgary Airport Authority explains, “The terminal was developed with a focus on reducing

More than 2,000 people took part in trials on everything from YYC LINK passenger shuttles to check-in and passenger processing systems in the new International Terminal.

our environmental footprint wherever possible.” The project includes many other sustainable features in the design. Rainwater and meltwater collected from the terminal roof will be filtered and stored in large cisterns with a capacity of 800,000 litres of water to be used for low-flow plumbing fixtures throughout the facility washrooms. The exterior glass wall will both retain and repel heat as needed with a double glazed façade on all south facing walls, triple-pane glass, and automatic built-in blinds. Even the way passenger’s bags will be handled is going greener. “We’ve completed testing our new stateof-the-art CrisBag® baggage-handling system. Although this tote-and-tray system is often used in Europe, it is new for North America,” says Mejia. Each bag has its own tote, allowing for positive tracking throughout the 10-kilometre length system. At a top speed of 10 metres per second, it can handle 4,000 bags every hour and uses 60 per cent less energy than a traditional conveyer system. The existing terminal will also be outfitted with this baggage system as part of the connectivity projects. Physically, the two terminals are connected on two fronts: road-side, with travellers moving freely from one to the other with the new hotel in the middle and on the air side with the secure over 600-metre post-security Connections Corridor.

Passengers can remain within securityscreened areas when making connections for international flights with no need to pick up and recheck bags as they move from domestic to international. Travellers can traverse the Corridor, walking along a dedicated path or they can use one of the six moving walkways, supplied and installed by ThyssenKrupp Elevator. “These ‘pitless’ moving walkways were set on top of the finished floors,” says Jason Clouthier, EllisDon’s senior project manager. “Because the baggage handling system is below the Connections Corridor that runs between the two terminals, we couldn’t take space from above that area.” Passengers can also ride on one of 20 YYC LINK™ passenger shuttles, specially designed and built in Canada in collaboration with YYC by a consortium of Quebec companies: FP Innovations, a not-for-profit engineering and research group, the product development specialists, Services PRECICAD Inc., electric vehicle manufacturer, KARGO, research organization, Institut du véhicule innovant, and automotive design company, Deutschman Design. The YYC LINK™ vehicles are 100 per cent electric powered, capable of travelling 12 kilometres per hour, and can carry up to 10 passengers and their carry-on luggage, and will run on scheduled service. “The Corridor will be fully operational on opening day with some temporary

measures in place as we will continue to have phased construction going on with dedicated teams working through what will be the domestic terminal,” says Mejia. Once the new terminal opens, construction can be completed throughout the existing Canadian and U.S. Customs areas to align the Corridor into its final route. “The biggest challenge in construction has been building within a fullyoperational airport,” Mejia explains. “Every day, every worker who is involved in work post security or airside has to clear security.” In addition, all materials must go through security; vehicles are screened and security escort services are set up to oversee the site. Meanwhile, working alongside construction crews, Mejia and his team have run full trials at end of September 2016. Mejia has extensive experience in how it all fits together, having supervised the construction of the new Quinto International Airport in Ecuador, as well as coordinating construction activities at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport. “We completed the commissioning stage of planning and operations early this summer. From there we moved into integration and activation, which allows us to try out various systems as if they were operating today.” From an Information Technology (IT) perspective, the existing terminal must The CONSTRUCTOR 2017

connect seamlessly to the new International Terminal. “Testing of signage, announcements, and information kiosks is ongoing,” adds Mejia. “We need to know that passengers are going to be able to check-in smoothly, that all the information displays are up and running, and the pre-board screening areas are functioning. We want to make sure passengers can find their way through the new space easily and quickly.” Mejia indicates new employees must be hired and trained while systems continue to go through various tests and trials. YYC employees will undergo training sessions and e-learning programs prior to

opening day in order to become familiar with the new technology and systems, from August to September 2016, YYC performs trials on everything from YYC LINK passenger shuttles to check-in and passenger processing systems. To this end, the activation team is bringing in volunteers from the community to take simulated trips and provide feedback on their experiences. More than 2,000 people will take part in these trials running from August to October 2016. On October 31, 2016, the new International Terminal will come to life overnight when all international and U.S.-destined flights move over from the

existing facility. Mejia says, “This switch is critical. A number of people will work on scheduling throughout the night, making sure everything is running efficiently on the operational day.” The new terminal will open up opportunities to add expanded destinations and provide an efficient, state-of-the-art facility for the millions of passengers who come through YYC every year. YYC has come a long way from that first grassy runway on the edge of town, and the Calgary construction industry has been an important part of that journey from the ground up. n

Your National Voice

Canadian Construction Association Report By Gilbert Brulotte, CCA-National, Board Chair

(Left to right): John Bockstael, president & CEO of Bockstael Construction Ltd. and CCA-National third national vice-chair; Zey Emir president of Revay and Associates Ltd. and CCA-National second national vice-chair/honourary secretary; Gilbert Brulotte, senior vice-president, civil division of EllisDon Corp. and CCA-National chair; Justine Trudeau, prime minister; Chris McNally, director of C & M McNally Engineering Corp. and first national vice-chair/treasurer; Michael Atkinson, CCA-National president.

The Canadian Construction Association is your national voice in Ottawa. Here are some of CCA-National’s current top priorities. The new federal infrastructure program CCA-National was pleased to see the federal government make good on its election promise to a new 10-year $60-billion program that essentially doubles the previous federal commitment. CCA-National has pledged to work with the government to ensure a successful and timely roll-out of this program but is concerned with the possible application of “community benefits” and/or other forms of “social procurement” to both federal government construction contracts and federally-funded projects. It is also concerned that the federal government may introduce a ‘’carbon screen” for Phase 2 projects that might cause projects to be re-designed or re-prioritized an thereby effect timely implementation. Federal prompt payment The CCA-National board passed the following motion: “That, CCA-National work with its partner associations, interested stakeholders, and federal contracting authorities, to educate the federal government on the importance of prompt

payment and cash flow on federal construction projects, and work together to resolve any concerns, which may include the enactment of federal prompt payment legislation acceptable to the industry.” A CCA-National task force established to complete the foregoing task made a presentation to the major federal construction contracting authorities in April 2016 designed to get them to acknowledge: 1. That payment/cash flow is a serious problem for the industry and for federal construction projects; 2. To recognize that there is a role for the federal contracting agencies in addressing prompt payment concerns beyond simply the prime contract level; 3. To agree to work jointly with CCA to resolve those concerns including looking at a host of potential measures. The presentation met its objectives. The major federal construction contracting authorities agreed to strike a joint industry-government working group with CCA-National to resolve this issue. Those meetings are now underway. Federal government procurement and contracting practices CCA-National has ongoing concerns with the possibility of seeing apprenticeship hiring quotas on federal projects. It also continues to be concerned with the delays and duplication ex-

perienced with federal industrial security clearance procedures, and the length of the payment terms utilized by the RP1 Contractor, Brookfield GIS. Quality of design documents Another high priority issue for CCA-National is the poor quality of design documents. In 2015, CCA hosted a series of country-wide regional workshops with general contractors, trade contractors, architects, consulting engineers, and owner representatives to raise the awareness of the impact of poor design and to seek feedback on the causes and potential solutions. CCA-National has captured and recorded the major points, findings and recommendations that emerged from these workshops and has posted these on its website and is now pursuing discussions on the recommendations and proposed solutions with the national design associations and public owners like the federal government. A federal government-industry working group has been established for that purpose. Review of environmental laws and regulations The new federal government has promised to make environmental assessments “credible again” and to restore protections lost by the previous government’s changes to the Fisheries Act and the Navigable Waters Protection Act. CCA-National is concerned that this could mean a return to the uncertainty, unnecessary duplication, and “green tape” of the past that had nothing to do with good environmental stewardship. CCA-National was successful in having a representative appointed to the Minister of Environment’s Multi-Interest Advisory Committee on Environmental Assessment, formed to advise the Expert Panel, the Minister established to review environmental assessment processes. The new Lean Construction Institute of Canada CCA-National has established the new Lean Construction Institute of Canada (LCI-C) as a special of CCA-National similar to the Canadian Design-Build Institute (CDBI). This has

been done in consultation with the Lean Construction Institute (LCI) in the United States. The new institute’s priority is to promote awareness of the lean process and to educate the industry on lean principles and how they can be applied to design and construction, in all project delivery methodologies. LCI-Canada held its inaugural national conference in April 2016, in Calgary and is currently rolling out a national educational program based upon the Lean Construction Education Program developed by the Associated General Contractors of America in concert with the Lean Construction Institute in the U.S. National Construction Industry Ethics course CCA-National and BuildForce Canada partnered to produce the first ever national Construction Industry Ethics course. The course consists of both an online and a classroom portion. The Gold Seal Certification program has announced that both the online and classroom portions of the new ethics course will be mandatory for all new Gold Seal applicants starting in 2017. The Institute for BIM in Canada (IBC) CCA-National is a founding member of the Institute for BIM in Canada (IBC). IBC also now serves as the Canadian chapter of buildingSMART International. IBC’s Mission is “to lead and facilitate the coordinated use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in the design, construction, and management of the Canadian built environment.” The IBC will releasing the first three volumes of its BIM Manual by the end of this year: • Volume1- BIM: A Primer; • Volume 2 - Setting up BIM in an Office; and • Volume 3 - Setting up BIM on a Project.

New Indigenous Engagement Best Practices Guide being developed A CCA-National task force is working with Indigenous Works to develop an Indigenous Engagement Best Practices Guide for member firms. It is expected late 2016. Corporate social responsibility CCA-National has a task force looking at what role it should take in the promotion of best practices concerning corporate social responsibility (CSR). Recently the CCA board approved a policy that promotes the voluntary adoption of CSR principles. CCA-National is now housing on its website educational literature and information on CSR, and is developing a CSR “howto-guide” for member firms. Gold Seal program The CCA-National Gold Seal Certification Program is entering a new phase in its evolution with grandfathering and the senior practitioner category gone. The only way to now become Gold Seal certified going forward is to successfully pass, (i.e. achieve a mark of 75 per cent or better on), a National Gold Seal examination in the particular designation and discipline in which certification is being sought. New measures currently under consideration include man-

Gold Seal has just decided that it will be adding “foreman” (non-trades) as a new Gold Seal occupation in 2017. Innovation CCA-National is a founding member of Canadian Construction Innovations (CCInnovations). It is the result of a challenge by CCA-National to establish an institute to instil a new culture for innovation in the Canadian construction industry. CCInnovations has recently embarked upon an advocacy program that seeks to raise industry funds to assist in unlocking significant federal dollars for research and innovation in the construction industry. CCA-National’s annual conference Any of you who have attended a CCA-National Annual Conference know that it is an extremely informative, funfilled and exciting event that offers tremendous networking opportunities with high quality business sessions, and first class social functions.

FEATURE | Construction Law

Does a Labour and Material Payment Bond Create a Trust? By Shaun W. Hohman, Rose LLP The Alberta Court of Appeal recently released its decision in Valard Construction Ltd v Bird Construction Company1, upholding the decision from the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench2, which held that an obligee does not owe a duty to provide notice of the existence of a labour and material payment bond to subcontractors working at a project. 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 a labour and material payment bond (the “Bond”) for the work it was to provide Bird at a project located in Fort McMurray, Alberta. The Bond was a standard CCDC version labour and material payment bond. The Bond appointed Bird as the obligee and trustee, and Langford as the principal. Valard Construction Ltd. (“Valard”) entered into a sub-subcontract with Langford to complete a portion of the electrical work. Valard was not paid for all the services that it provided to Langford and later obtained default judgment against 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 such claim was outside 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. In doing so, Valard relied upon trust language in the Bond which stated that the obligee was to act as a trustee for all potential claimants under the Bond. Valard alleged that Bird’s fiduciary duty to inform it of the existence of the Bond was triggered at or before the time when Bird learned of difficulties that were encountered at the project. Bird provided a copy of the Bond to Valard immediately after it was requested by Valard, although this was also after the 120-day notice period prescribed in the Bond had expired.

A mini-trial was held to determine the sole issue of whether Bird, as trustee, owed any fiduciary duties to Valard, to inform Valard of the existence of the Bond prior to Valard making inquiries to Bird in this regard. Analysis In upholding the trial decision, the 2:1 majority of the Alberta Court of Appeal relied upon previous authority from Canadian courts which rejected the proposition that a trustee/obligee under a labour and material payment bond has a positive legal duty to take steps to bring the existence of bonds to the attention of potential claimants. Finding that Bird was not in a fiduciary relationship with Valard, the Court stated: [28] “The Canadian cases offered by [Bird] are sound in law and principle. In Alberta, a contractor in the position of [Bird] has no legal duty to inform any potential claimant about the existence of a labour and material payment bond, unless and until a clear and unequivocal request for information about the bond is made. Alberta’s Builders’ Lien Act provides the method for a potential claimant – a lien holder – to make a demand for information, and imposes consequences upon those who fail to promptly comply with such demand. [30] [Bird] did not owe a legal duty to inform [Valard] of the existence of the labour and material payment bond, irrespective of howsoever such duty might be satisfied, until [Bird] was specifically asked by [Valard] about the existence of a labour and material payment bond. That specific request was made by [Valard] on April 19, 2010. [Bird] answered [Valard’s] specific request. [31] Accordingly, this ground of appeal is dismissed.” Following the lead of the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench, the Alberta Court of Appeal placed the burden squarely back upon the shoulders of Valard to ensure that it made appropriate inquiries at the outset of the project to determine if any bonding facilities were available.3


FEATURE | Construction Law

As a refresher on the law of trusts, the dissenting Justice then provided a thorough review of the duties of a trustee, concluding that the Bond displayed all the essential features of an express trust. What makes this decision interesting is the lengthy and substantive dissenting decision that follows. The dissenting Justice found that a trustee holds fiduciary obligations created by the business trust, which in this case were not met. Bird, as the trustee named in the Bond, was required to take reasonable measures to make available, to a sufficiently large segment of the potential beneficiaries, information about the existence of the Bond. Three methods for doing this were presented: 1. A copy of the Bond could have been posted at the project site office where meetings attended by contractors were regularly held; 2. Bird could have insisted that Langford include in its contracts with subcontractors, a provision that disclosed the existence of the Bond and required all subcontractors to notify Bird in writing, acknowledging receipt of notice with respect to the existence of the Bond; or 3. Bird could have demanded that Langford provide it, in a timely manner, with a list of all subcontractors that were retained to work on the project, following which Bird could have taken reasonable steps to communicate to this group the existence of the Bond. Noting that the cost of such measures would have been negligible, the dissenting Justice pointed out that Bird took no steps whatsoever to notify Valard of the existence of the Bond (prior to Valard’s request), and that Valard would have benefited from such knowledge. Accordingly, the dissenting Justice found that Bird failed to discharge its fiduciary obligations as trustee and was responsible for the damages that Valard, a beneficiary under the Bond, suffered as a result of Bird’s failure to discharge its fiduciary obligations. Further, the dissenting Justice noted that the fiduciary duty owed to potential claimants under a labour and material payment bond is not diminished by the conduct of the beneficiary, and accordingly, whether Valard did or did not take reasonable measures to determine if a labour and performance bond existed, was irrelevant. As a refresher on the law of trusts, the dissenting Justice then provided a thorough review of the duties of a trustee, concluding that the Bond displayed all the essential features of an express trust. He dis-

agreed with the trial Justice and the majority decision, which both found that the trustee language in the Bond was included to create a limited trust so as to circumvent the third party beneficiary that would prevent non-party claimants from making a claim on such bond. Instead, the dissenting Justice found that all three pillars of a trust were met and that a true express trust was in fact created by the wording of the Bond, which trust had been breached by Bird. As a final shot across the bow, the following was proposed to avoid the obligations inherently created by the Bond: [165] “If labour and material payment bond trustees are convinced that these obligations are onerous and impractical, they should instruct their lawyers to draft labour and material payment bonds that expressly declare the notice obligations that the trustee bears. Careful drafters will realize that as the obligation of the trustee to discharge the universally accepted duties of a trustee diminishes, the risk that a court may decline the characterize the relationship as a trust increases.” In light of the substantive dissenting decision, it may be that the law on this issue in Alberta (and throughout Canada) is not settled. We will continue to monitor whether leave is sought to the Supreme Court of Canada to determine once and for all the duties that an obligee owes to potential claimants under labour and material payment bonds. Footnotes 1 Valard Construction Ltd v Bird Construction Company, 2016 ABCA 249 2 Valard Construction Ltd v Bird Construction Company, 2015 ABQB 141 3 The Alberta Court of Appeal did reverse the costs award that was awarded by the Justice of the Court of Queen’s Bench to Bird, allowing the appeal in this regard to succeed. The reason for this was that the Court of Appeal did not believe that Valard’s claim against the respondent was “a proceeding to enforce the provisions of the bond.” Instead, such claim was a claim against Bird for breaching its alleged duty to inform Valard of the existence of the bond. n

Digging the Downtown Scene

TELUS Sky features innovation from below

By Tammy Schuster

The Stampede, the Saddledome, the 1988 Winter Olympics - Calgary is the home of many events, landmarks, and moments in history. Now, Calgary is also home to one of the largest man-made holes in Canada. Construction of TELUS Sky, a 60-storey development, will be one of the tallest buildings in the city and the excavation for a building of such height required a 31-metre hole be dug beneath its surface. Not exactly business-as-usual when having to excavate in downtown Calgary. “The challenge was the depth of the dig, and the small footprint of the site,” says Jan Gryckiewicz, chief executive officer, Professional Excavators Ltd. “The deadline had to be met so we had to come up with a way to produce the volume of dirt needed on a daily basis to stay on schedule.” Gryckiewicz says during excavation of the Bow building in Calgary, which is on a larger site taking up two square blocks, they had the space to build the conventional ramp leading down into the excavation. Trucks could then drive down to be loaded with dirt and drive back out removing it from the site. On the current site, in the 100 block of 7th Avenue Southwest at Centre Street South, there was no room to build a ramp down into the excavation. “The way the shoring was working to support the existing buildings and infrastructure, there was no way we could have a ramp inside the hole because it would occupy most of the excavation.” So Gryckiewicz’s team took a different approach by bringing the dirt up to the trucks which were parked on the street. There was talk of installing a conveyer system, but that would not bring out the volume of dirt needed to meet their deadline. Digging down to 102 feet and removing nearly 80,000 cubic metres of dirt would require some innovation. “We spent $100,000 doing mock-ups in our yard to ensure this system would work,” says Gryckiewicz. “We built a hopper, a portion of which came from Left to right: The team from Professional Excavators: Brynn Haika, chief estimator; Kim Wolkowski, president; Jan Gryckiewicz, CEO; Bob Logue, vicepresident operations; and Sean Murphy, vice-president.

California, then we did some fabrication in our yard, and Dirtzilla came from a dredging barge in a lake in Manitoba.” Dirtzilla, a clam bucket attached to a 110-tonne crane and capable of scooping seven-and-a-half yards of dirt at a time, loaded the excavated dirt into the hopper they created which then fed into a series of dump trucks up at street level. The first cut of the excavation was done using conventional track hoes and the trucks were able to drive up and be loaded with dirt. Then, as the dig went deeper, four excavators were in the hole digging and casting the dirt into the corner for Dirtzilla to remove. “We chose to load everything from the streets marrying the old technology of the drag line with the new technology of the crane.” When nearing the end of the excavation, crews hit some difficult rock at the bottom so they attempted some blasting which, says Gryckiewicz, didn’t make a significant difference so they continued breaking the rock with hydraulic breakers to finish the project. Once the excavation was complete, two cranes were brought in to haul all of the equipment — including some of the shoring — out of the hole and onto trailers. The innovation garnered the company some attention from organizations including the Canadian Society for Civil Engineers and SAIT, and the team received requests to consult on projects in Vancouver and Toronto. The entire excavation, including shoring, took eight and half months and they were able to meet their deadline. Once out of the ground, TELUS Sky will incorporate office space, retail stores, and luxury residences. Designed by international architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group and local firm DIALOG, construction is expected to complete in 2018. “Construction has been going well, and the project is ahead of schedule,” says Rhiannon Mabberley, project manager for Westbank Projects Corp. “It is approaching a more a complicated level of construction where the floor plate of the building changes.


FEATURE | Telus Sky In order to dig down 102 feet and remove nearly 80,000 cubic metres of dirt Professional Excavators Ltd. brought it Dirtzilla, a clam bucket attached to a 110-tonne crane which was capable of scooping sevenand-a-half yards of dirt at a time.

Mabberley says a nine-storey atrium will be shelled out of the west side of the property, and office space will be allocated up to the 29th storey before turning into residential space. “The building will shift slightly and the façade will become more pixelated as it transitions into the residential floors.” While mixed-use buildings are common in larger cities, there are less of these projects seen in Calgary. Even the idea of having residential accommodations in Calgary’s downtown core is a big shift. But while the design, the innovation, and the philosophy are distinctive, the finished product will be a positive change to the look and feel of the city. “It wasn’t a new approach, but it was unique,” says Gryckiewicz of the project. “I believe this is going to be one of the most beautiful buildings in Calgary.” n

Armour Equipment celebrates 55 years of business with an artistic portrayal of their trade By Carly Peters

Armour Equipment celebrated 55 years in business with a unique scaffold art contest as part of Beakerhead 2016, a colourful mashup of technology, art, and science.

Scaffolding is used for construction trades to access their work safely and efficiently and is seen on construction sites all over Alberta. As one of the most common materials seen on construction sites, it’s often the one most overlooked by the public, but Charles Maygard, owner and general manager of Armour Equipment, views the structures with a different eye. This vision inspired an innovative contest for Beakerhead 2016, a colourful mashup of technology, art, and science, as well as a way to celebrate the company’s 55th anniversary. “For years, I had seen an inherent artistic ability in a scaffolder to design and build temporary structures from a quick glance of a height workers needed to access and often wondered if that skill could be translated into a piece of art, as the fundamentals are the same,” he explains. “A lot of artists throughout history have used scaffolding to create their art. For example Michelangelo required scaffolding to paint the Sistine Chapel. Often scaffolding is used to create, install, and sometimes display art. But it is rarely used as an art medium itself.”

Celebrating 55 years in business is a rarity as well, and one that most companies do not often get to boast in Alberta. Maygard wanted to bring attention to this accomplishment in a cool and unusual way, one that would show the trade in a different perspective. So he decided to create a first-of-its-kind competition in which scaffolders could conceive and submit an art sculpture using a common construction tool - scaffolding. Having developed the idea, Maygard decided to wait for the right time to get the critical mass and attention needed to make the competition both relevant and successful. This year, the stars aligned with both the milestone anniversary and the wild popular art installation celebration. “When Armour approached Beakerhead about the competition, they were ecstatic about the idea and happy to facilitate the winning display at their venues. This was the opportunity and partnership we needed to get our winning scaffold art the attention it deserved,” he states, pointing out Armour had

worked with Beakerhead for the last two years creating display and interactive scaffolds for the venues. The first year, a robot scaffold was built at the entrance of Beakerhead’s main venue. The following year, a large, interactive stage was used for a concert where acrobats used the scaffold as a playground showing their parkour skills, as well as a life-sized arcade claw machine built out of scaffold and a huge claw and crane system where users could try their luck at snagging huge stuffed animals. For the 2016 competition, 10 entries were submitted and reviewed by a panel of seven judges which included representatives from Beakerhead, Local 2103 United Brotherhood of Carpenters, Armour Equipment, and a local structural engineer. In the end, the winning design was chosen by an almost unanimous decision. Pegasus by Artur Karlov, a journeyman union scaffolder living in Edmonton, who had originally taken formal art school in his home country of Russia, showed the judges not only his understanding of structure, but of art as well. “My design is a Pegasus, a divine winged stallion from the Greek mythology. I feel that it represents what the essence of scaffold is: something sturdy and reliable (a horse supported by four strong legs) and at the same time something that is able to lift the rider through the air (the wings on the Pegasus). And just like a Pegasus would not be ridden just by anybody, but by the worthy rider; so is the scaffold that can be only be saddled by the user who possesses the appropriate level of skill,” explained Karlov in his design submission. The symbolism of the Pegasus, which was created out of tube and clamp scaffolding, was something that truly hit home with Maygard as well. “Not only is Pegasus symbolic of a scaffolder, it is a symbol of Armour Equipment’s history and my entrepreneurial vision,” he states. “I work in one of the oldest industries, so things are commonly done the same way. I challenge my team to look at our business differently and find fun and creative ways to do business to help differentiate our company. Especially after 55 years in business, redundancy and complacency can set in and work can become boring. Seeing pieces of steel and aluminum come together into a beautiful and engaging piece of art has brought new life to our company. I think that’s why you celebrate an anniversary, to acknowledge the past and create excitement about the future. With Pegasus as our inspiration, we are looking forward to flying high into the future on a strong and sturdy past.” n The CONSTRUCTOR 2017

A Man with a Mission

Don Ward, former CCA president, has dedicated his life to bettering his community, family, and the industry he has served By Colleen Biondi

Don Ward’s school photo from Crescent Heights High School where he graduated from in 1961.

Don Ward’s first memory takes him back to the age of five. The local doctor was at his Swift Current house tending to his mother who’d suffered a burst aneurysm. Unfortunately, his arrival came too late. This memory, and several other profound ones which followed, created in Don a very particular life mission – despite any challenges or difficulties he might experience in life, or maybe because of them, he would become a grateful man, an exceptional friend, and an accomplished colleague. This mission was successfully, although not easily, realized. After his mother’s death, Don’s older sister, Gerry, took over the housekeeping reins and his grandparents helped look after him while his father was at work. Five years later, Don’s dad moved the family to Calgary as he had secured work as a heavy duty mechanic for Mannix Construction. But he was a widower

and it was the 1950s; he needed someone to look after the boy while he got settled. After some serious investigating, he put Don in a Calgary orphanage called Wood’s Christian Homes for three years. A total of 10 staff members, “not counting the cook and laundry lady,” looked after 100 kids. Although Ward will not go into detail as to what it was like at Wood’s back then, the experience was not a positive one. His dad visited him as often as he could and took him for lunches on weekends. After graduating from Grade 9, his dad was able to take him home. During Grade 11, Don’s dad remarried. Ward now had a stepmom and stepsister – a dynamic which would add two new challenging dimensions to his life. At this point, Don was attending Crescent Heights High School. Instead of being a place of refuge from his home life, it was a place where he felt overwhelmed. He was used to being one of a handful of students in his grade at Wood’s; now, there were 800. In fact, it wasn’t until he joined the Navy, at the age of 18 during the Cold War that the sands shifted. He took 16 weeks of new-entry training and six months of communications training south of Halifax. He learned Morse code (passed the test at 25 words – or 130 letters – per minute), as well as how to teletype and manage coded messages related to top secret material. One ship he sailed on had unique submarine detection mechanisms. One day, the crew detected a Russian submarine in the Bay of Fundy. Don spent three years in service and logged more than 250 days at sea during his final year. Over this time frame, he became an

accomplished able seaman radioman, travelled the world, and met men who became treasured and lifelong friends. It was interesting work, but also isolating. He left the Navy in 1965, but, to this day, can still wear his uniform. In 1965, Don started work at Canadian Pittsburgh Industries - which would ultimately become PPG - as a warehouse helper and packer and settled into civilian life. He took his glassworkers apprenticeship certification at SAIT and was later promoted to field superintendent, estimator, and contract sales manager. In 1981, he joined Griffin Glass and became president in 1985. There were good times and there were tough times as Alberta’s fluctuating economy rose and fell, but at day’s end, he was able to put bread on the family table. He learned many lessons at work – the importance of having a good boss and mentor and being one as well and the importance of regular and honest communication with suppliers, staff, contractors, and owners and the importance of rolling up your sleeves and joining the team in order to meet a business objective and to build rapport and trust. “I got more information working with a crew – holding the balance while they were lifting heavy glass, for example - than I did through a visit or meeting,” says Don. During his time with Griffin and for the rest of his business life, he became involved with industry volunteer work. He volunteered at the executive level for the Calgary Construction Association, the Alberta Construction Association, and the Canadian Construction Association, as well as for the Calgary Glass and Architectural Metals Associa-

tion. He acted as initial chairman of the Alberta Construction Tendering System and the local and provincial Apprenticeship Advisory Committee for Glaziers, amongst other industry groups. One of his claims to fame as a volunteer was meeting with federal government officials at Meech Lake to promote bid depository style tendering for the industry. Another was the successful role he played on the task force committee that lobbied the provincial government to reduce the statutory holdback on the Alberta Standard subcontract document from 15 per cent to 10 per cent. Dave Smith, president of the Calgary Construction Association, has commented that Don’s, “belief in a fair, transparent, and equitable bid system was unwavering” and his leadership in establishing ethical business practices for the industry was exemplary. Don has been recognized repeatedly by his business peers. He is the recipient of the Canadian Construction Association’s prestigious Ernest Dobbelsteyn Memorial Trophy. He has also received the Calgary Construction Association’s Ted Walden Award and its 2002 Person of the Year Award. He also has a robust personal life. In 1966, he married Dianne. They have three sons - Jeff is married to Katyuska

in charge of set design and construction for a local performing arts club. His latest gig includes designing and fabricating a pie for a dead actor’s head to drop into. “Being so close to Los Angeles, we have some real actors, producers, and directors there. Some very accomplished people get involved,” he muses. He is also a photography buff and is a member of the Shadow Hills Camera Club. In 2015, he won three awards for a black and white image of an artist’s hands. With the money he won, he purchased more sophisticated photographic equipment. In addition to the extensive volunteering Don has done inside the industry, he has also been busy in the Calgary community. He has donated over 60 pints of blood to Canadian Blood Services, was a Boy Scout leader when the boys were young, and has recently canvassed for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. This latter choice was a very specific one. In 2010, Don suffered a major heart attack in Golden, British Columbia and was airlifted to Foothills Hospital in Calgary. Doctors inserted a stent and he is now well. The only other health issue that he lives with is five-per cent vision in his right eye due to a condition called amblyopia, which does not respond to corrective lenses. For fun while in Calgary, Don putters in the garden, goes on daily walks and swims, fishes and canoes on the lake which his home backs onto. Both he and Dianne enjoy renovating and have recently torn up the flooring, redone a bathroom, and expanded their back deck. And, of course, the kids and

FEATURE | Construction Industry Ethics

Tackling the Grey Areas

The Canadian Construction Association’s new ethics course has been well-received By Melanie Franner

Kees Cusveller, vice-president of Alternative Project Delivery for Graham Group Ltd., and chair of the national Gold Seal program, represented the Canadian Construction Association when working with BuildForce Canada to establish the Construction Industry Ethics course.

The Charbonneau Commission looking into corruption practices within the Quebec construction industry may have been the catalyst that got the ball rolling, but the subsequent Construction Industry Ethics course from the Canadian Construction Association (CdnCA) has been well-received right across the country. The course launched nationally in April 2016. “We looked around at the time and saw there were a lot of courses out there but none specific to construction,” explains Kees Cusveller, vice-president of Alternative Project Delivery for Graham Group Ltd. (Graham), and member of the CdnCA’s board of directors. “So we went to work on designing a course that was built for industry by people in the industry.” To do so, the CdnCA partnered with BuildForce Canada. “Ethics is an issue for all industries,” states Rosemary Sparks, executive director of BuildForce Canada. “The CdnCA wanted to show leadership and set the

standards for ethics within the Canadian construction industry. There was a real gap in the market in terms of what was available.” A year in the making After 12 months in development, the Construction Industry Ethics course launched as an online resource. The goal? To help those in a supervisory capacity – either in the office or out in the field – to consider the ethical consequences of their actions. “The intent is to get people thinking,” says Cusveller. “This is all about looking at the grey areas. When a supplier calls and invites you out to a round of golf, you’ll probably say ‘sure.’ But if in the next breath he says that the game will be in the Queen Charlotte Islands, then what do you say? Will that trip be there at the back of your mind when it’s time to award the next contract?” According to Sparks, the course is designed for anyone who is in a position

of leading by example, and showing others the ethical way to act in “grey” situations that may arise day-to-day. “The situations used in the course are very real,” notes Cusveller. “They are based on real things that have happened to most of us who have been in the construction industry for any length of time. The rules were different 30 years ago. It used to be that the guy who yelled the loudest was the best superintendent. That’s changed. The whole industry has changed. It’s become much more inclusive, respectful, and ethical. There is a real need for a course like this in today’s construction industry.” The Construction Industry Ethics course is designed with both an online and classroom component. The online portion can be completed anywhere – work or home – while the classroom component is designed to engage the learners in discussions and exploration of ethical scenarios. “The online portion takes an average of four hours to complete,” explains

Sparks, who adds as part of BuildForce’s work with the CdnCA, the organization designed an instructor manual for the classroom portion of the course. “The classroom portion takes about one day and will differ from course to course depending on who is delivering it and who the participants are. Organizations, like construction associations or individual companies, will deliver the classroom training.” Sparks describes the Construction Industry Ethics course as having been designed to help the participant make decisions that have ethical ramifications. “We tried to include some theory, as well as construction-specific practical scenarios to illustrate the application on the job,” she explains. “It also touches on things like a Code of Ethics, the value of it and what it means, and social license and social responsibility. Ultimately, the whole course is about how to understand and act when navigating the ethical grey areas.”

Industry reaction BuildForce reports that more than 60 people have registered for the online portion of the Construction Industry Ethics course and 33 people have completed it since the launch date (as of June 2016). According to Sparks, feedback from the participant surveys show that people really like the course, that they find it “exceeds or meets” their expectations, and that they would recommend it to someone else. “The reaction has been very positive,” says Cusveller. “We’re starting to get good uptake.” Cusveller is quick to add companies like Graham are considering ways to

bring the Construction Industry Ethics course in-house and offer it to many of their employees. “We’ve shared it with our training group and they are looking at introducing it in the company this fall,” he says, adding Graham has eight offices across Canada, with 1,200 salaried employees and 5,000 hourly employees. Another factor that will definitely raise interest in the Construction Industry Ethics course is making it mandatory for Gold Seal certification. “I chair the Gold Seal committee of the CdnCA and one of the challenges I’ve encountered since taking on the position six months ago has been that there are no minimum standards when it

Marketable material Having individual companies promote and deliver the Construction Industry Ethics course is one way to help spread the word of its availability. Another is to involve the industry associations themselves. “The key thing is to raise awareness of the course and to let industry know that it is available,” says Cusveller. “There is a lot of room in the classroom portion of the course for companies to customize it to their own organization. The point

is that this is a national course that is applicable right across the country. It’s a great opportunity for associations to market to and engage with their own members. CdnCA has paid for the development, which was a significant endeavour, so that the course itself would be relatively inexpensive. The hard work is done. It’s up to the industry to pick it up from here.” The CCA has been an early adopter of promoting ethics and sound business practices. Ted Weallens, past chair of the Calgary Construction Association FIRE PROTECTION FOR HOMES, BUSINESSES & INDUSTRY (CCA), led a committee of construction industry leaders to 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 committee felt that this course is important enough that we should make it mandatory.

10 Years of Success

Calgary’s Construction Career Expo showcases construction as a first choice By Amy Smith

The Construction Career Expo is industry funded and put on by over 200 volunteers and exhibitors. The team that put the 10th annual expo together.

In 2006, in Calgary, times were good. The economy was healthy and about to reach the pinnacle of a boom. With that, the construction industry identified a looming labour shortage as the baby boomer generation was about to commence retirement. With construction building permits on the rise and the city’s skyline changing daily, there was a need for a workforce larger than what we had. In addition, career options multiplied as industries became more specialized and there were more and more career options for youth to consider. The market of job options also became saturated with so many unique and specialized career paths to choose from. This situation only added to the confusion of adolescent teenagers who become overwhelmed by the vast world of career opportunities. The Calgary Construction Association (CCA) board of directors recognized

182

Calgary Construction Association Magazine

these factors and decided to form a committee that would establish a unique hands-on exhibition showcasing the various construction trades. When you are in high school, the exposure to various trades outside of carpentry or welding is extremely limited, and it’s also dependent on the kinds of facilities your high school offers. Therefore, unless you had family or friends working in the industry, outside of the construction shop classroom, there weren’t a lot of opportunities to be exposed to the intricacies of specific trades, including, but not limited to, electrical wiring, sheet metal, masonry, concrete paving, siding, or roofing. The CCA formed a Construction Career Expo committee and this group set out to connect first with the two main school boards in the city - the Calgary Board of Education (CBE) and the Calgary Catholic School District (CCSD). The industry also

wanted buy-in from the school boards and to make the expo as accessible as possible. Therefore, the committee removed anticipated barriers such as cost to attend the event, complimentary bussing to and from the expo, reimbursement to cover any substitute teacher needs, and a complimentary lunch to all attendees. The industry thought this would surely garner support from the two largest school boards. And it did. With invitations being sent to over 50 high schools, the CCA saw buy-in from the schools and eventually the students. Once at the expo, students were greeted by over 45 different industry trade associations or CCA member companies who conduct construction-related business. This opportunity offered to the students was like none other and this one-day exposition offered full exposure of the career opportunities available.

Students participated in a competition at the Siding Contractors Association of Alberta display where they would race another team to see how fast they could construct the eavestrough to a structure that resembled a home.

Not to be confused with an annual hiring fair, the intent of this expo was specifically created for career exploration, providing a platform to expose youth to the vast number of skilled trade opportunities within reach for both men and women. Perceptions of working in construction were challenged as stigmas and preconceived notions were now faced with facts from real people in the industry. BuildForce Canada notes one out of every nine people work in construction or a related field. In addition, the average salary of a construction worker is above the national average. Furthermore, the opportunity to earn while you learn is there. You see a lot of apprentices graduating as journeyman with zero school debt, and that is a message the industry is pleased to share with students, parents, and school faculty. There aren’t a lot of other industries out there where you could say the same. The CCA was the first construction association in the country to offer this one-of-a-kind hands-on construction fair with only a few others to date following in the association’s footsteps and offering a similar exhibition in their local areas. What evolved from just a handful of schools in attendance now welcomes

schools from rural communities as far away as Vulcan or Canmore and the likes of surrounding communities such as Cochrane, Sundre, Strathmore, Chestemere, Okotoks, and Airdrie. The first expo 10 years ago welcomed approximately 600 students to the fair which has incrementally grown each year to see a record 2,800 students in 2016. The association continues to work closely with the school boards today on a number of initiatives related to construction career opportunities. The CCA also attends the Alberta Teachers’ Association convention along with the Palliser District Teachers’ Convention each year to meet with new and returning teachers to discuss the benefits of a career in construction. The CCA would like to thank the Construction Career Expo committee Chairman Grant Symon of Graham Construction who has graciously donated his time and efforts towards this initiative for the past 10 years. The association continues to believe strongly in promoting construction as a viable, worthwhile, and rewarding career option.

Going for Green

Lord Shaughnessy High School’s Career and Technology Centre scores award for innovative environmental programming By Tyler Walsh

Students in the Energy and Environment program harvest the 16 irrigated garden boxes that were built, designed, planted, and maintained by students.

Going green has paid off for Calgary’s Lord Shaughnessy High School. The school is being honoured with a national environmental award for their innovative curriculum and green building design at their unique Career and Technology Centre (CTC). The high school won first place in the 2016 Greenest School in Canada competition, presented yearly by the Canada Green Building Council and the Canadian Coalition for Green Schools. According to the Canada Green Building Council’s website, Lord Shaughnessy High School won for its “amazing Energy and Environmental Innovation program, that presented unique environmental strategies in both curriculum and physical building changes and updates.” Adam Robb, co-teacher of the Energy and Environmental Innovations Program at CTC, says the school finished second in 2015, and made a concerted effort to fill some gaps in its programming this year in order to take home the top prize.

Students harvest microgreens and sprouts. These greens are grown indoors by students and then sold to local restaurants. All revenues made are put toward student field trip costs.

They are sitting on recycled carpet tiles, donated by $6,000 was raised and students were able to Interface flooring, as part of the sustainability story of the school. visit Jasper National Park on a multi-night trip.

“Instead of just having the environmental efforts in [just one] program of our school, we made it throughout many of the programs in our school,” he states. “Even auto body, cosmetology, culinary; all the different educational programs here. So it’s become more of a schoolwide initiative.” Bringing the entire school into the green initiative means doing things like installing hydroponics systems to improve air quality in the auto body department or tending and growing gardens to be used in culinary classes. Robb says because the Energy and Environmental Innovations Program is interdisciplinary it can be mixed in with different subject areas while keeping the fundamentals of environmental sustainability intact. “Students design projects with the common goal of achieving something good for the environment, good for the community, and combatting or mitigating the effects of climate change,” he explains. “So

we have students designing policies, we have students growing things, and we have students building things.” The students in the Energy and Environmental Innovations Program are hearing from the industry that living walls are in demand. A living wall is essentially a vertical garden attached to existing wall inside or outside a building that not only offers aesthetic appeal but also improves air quality and can be used to earn additional LEED® credits. The students get requests from restaurants and even other schools to build the walls, says Robb. With the emphasis on environmental innovations in the school, Robb says students have taken a real interest in green buildings and construction. A group of students recently toured the new Mosaic Centre in Edmonton, Alberta’s first netzero commercial building which is also under review for LEED® Platinum Certification. “It’s basically a living building, he says. “It’s such a good educational tool for stu-

dents to look at the people inside of a building and think about all the health, energy, and water. We use that as a teaching concept here; the idea of a living building and our living community.” Building a partnership Lord Shaughnessy High School students have been learning and applying their skills in a state-of-the-art building since 2013, thanks to Westcor Construction, who completed major renovations to the centre. Construction involved removing asbestos, electrical and ventilation upgrades, and a complete design facelift which included building additions and a new entrance to the building Westcor Project Manager Ron Salat says even though the construction itself was pretty standard, working with the partners on the project was really enjoyable. “What made it key on this job is the positivity and the collaboration we had from all parties. The meetings we had with the consultants, the architect, the Calgary Board of Education [CBE], it was collaborative and solution oriented.”

In regards to the award, Salat adds, “To be part of that, it’s a great feeling and you can see it resonate through Westcor as well.” The project wasn’t without its challenges though. The school remained open for learning during the construction period. It required a lot of management of phasing plans and extra emphasis on both student and faculty safety and the safety of all workers, says Salat. Westcor continues to work closely with the CBE and other boards in the province on major school projects. The company has completed a major upgrade to a school in Three Hills and a new construction in Panorama Hills. “We’re also doing a major renovation in Hanna which is a big job that includes asbestos removal and a facelift of the school,” adds Salat. Bright future Another major aspect of Lord Shaughnessy High School’s renovation was an upgrade to the load bearing capacity of the roof, a feature the school

hopes to take advantage of through its solar energy initiative. “We’re looking at the cost analyses of implementing large scale solar,” states Robb, adding it’s something the school board is willing to invest in within the next couple of years. “Solar companies in Alberta are looking for places to put solar and schools are the perfect candidate because we have these huge flat roofs and it can also be used for educational purposes.” Along with the honour of being named the Greenest School in Canada was $2,000 in prize money to use for a green program. What does Lord Shaughnessy plan to do with the cash? “We’ve got a few different projects we could put that towards. We could add a zero on to that, I’d find room for it for sure,” says Robb with a laugh. The school will have a chance to add to its total as it goes on to compete as this year’s official Canadian entry for the Greenest School on Earth competition, awarded by the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council. n

Despite it being one of the coldest days in August, it proved to be another tremendous effort by CCA members to support the Education Fund. As usual the course was full of various activities at each hole put on by CCA members to add to the experience of the

Davidson Enman Lumber, long-time CCA member and president level sponsor returned to keep the chilly players nourished with a gourmet Spolumbos sausage at hole number four. BigSteelBox was back this year to host the favourite “chipping contest” where golfers had to chip three pseudo balls into one of their large steel boxes. With the

high winds experienced that day this certainly posed a challenge for all the participants. The creative game of “fundraising” poker was sponsored by Grant Thorton which baited players to purchase $5 cards to get a better hand. For each team, the hand would be dealt and a flop presented. Based on the cards in each player’s hand, they could choose to buy a new card which would increase their chances of getting the best hand of the day leading to a worthy

The CCA’s newest committee, the Young Construction Leaders (YCL) made their debut in Greek-style dressed in togas, a bold move for an unforeseen frosty day. This group came up with the creative game of “pitch pong”, a play on the popular game of beer pong. Again, players “pitched” money in order to play and this group raised $545. Once in the clubhouse, the golfers eagerly purchased 50/50 tickets and the lucky winner was Larry Tennis of Bird Construction. He could have been $725 richer but he chose to donate his winnings back to the Education Fund. Thank you Larry. It may have been a cold day on the links, but there were many warm hearts as people generously donated money throughout the day to bring the total of $53,000 raised for the CCA’s Education Fund.

report on research and innovation in the construction industry. The results found that Canada was lacking in terms of productivity for a number of reasons. This document took the form of a roadmap, suggesting the creation of an institute devoted to construction innovation. At about the same time, the Jenkins Report, Innovation Canada: A Call to Action, was released. This expert panel report, commissioned by the federal government, was critical of the low return on investment Canada was receiving on its R&D investments, and highlighted the fact that the industry lacked leadership in this area. Concurrently, a CdnCA steering committee was established to assess whether there was enough interest in the industry to create a construction innovation institute. This also provided information on the type of issues that would be prioritized. Emanating from this exercise, the steering committee presented a proposed business plan to the CdnCA that translated into seed money matched by early supporters, and in August 2014, CCI was formally established. The Calgary Construction Association (CCA) recognized the need for the formation of CCI and became an early supporter of the organization, along with seven other construction-related associations. CCA had invested heavily in research from 2004 to 2012, as the association partnered with the University of Calgary to research how to enhance construction productivity as the industry recognized that greater productivity will lead to greater efficiencies along with a better bottom line on a company’s financial statements. “The intent is to create a culture of innovation in the Canadian construction industry that will increase the stakeholders’ efficiency, profitability, and market extension at home and abroad,” says Pierre Boucher, president of CCI.


FEATURE | Canadian Construction Innovations

Pierre Boucher, president of Canadian Construction Innovations (CCI). CCI is an organization designed to enable and promote new innovative products, processes, and tools within the construction industry.

CCI was created to give the industry the tools and opportunities to realize its full potential. CCI’s objectives are to help transform the construction industry by promoting collaboration, improving processes, and making new technological advances. Some keys issues involve developing new procurement models that enable innovative solutions to be commercialized, demonstration projects needed for new construction methods to be put to market, and innovative ways to address risk management. “We are a slow adopter of technology in Canada,” says Boucher. “We are ranked 27 in the world, and as a G7 country that it is not just acceptable.“ One of the keys to progress is collaboration. The organization believes that companies working alone with limited funds and resources are not the answer. Innovation can only be achieved through a collective approach. Protectionism is also something of the past. Other industry sectors, such as auto manufacturing, aerospace, and IT invest into new technologies and processes jointly, and then reap the benefits in the very competitive markets in which they operate. “Canadian Construction Innovations works to engage owners, engineers, architects, contractors, and suppliers, as well as representatives from allied industries such as insurance, surety, and financiers, to encourage collaboration,” says Boucher. “It’s important to engage

the whole value chain to succeed. One segment of the industry cannot do it alone.” Through workshops co-hosted with academia, CCI has already begun the process of addressing how research is being conducted, how to make it more relevant to the industry, and how to ensure the outcomes consist of solutions that can be put to market. Some topics recently discussed include energy conservation for the heavy civil sector, fire suppression during construction, fire suppression in the built environment, modular construction, digitizing industry through BIM and other IT solutions, and curing concrete in cold climates. Another valuable resource on CCI’s website is the Clearinghouse where users can search for innovative solutions already available in the market place. There will soon be chatrooms where users can submit their own ideas for research and innovation, and share their viewpoints on current practices and the need for change. CCI will also use the Clearinghouse to source ideas for new

projects. “It creates an opportunity for those who want to develop an innovative solution to get input and feedback,” says Boucher Recently, The Canadian Society of Civil Engineering had a call for submissions for its national annual awards program. Boucher says they sourced a few solutions posted in the Clearinghouse and invited those people to submit, once of which was the winning solution. CCI has met with government officials over the last several months in an effort to become a key stakeholder of the federal government in the implementation of its own agenda on innovation. CCI has just tendered its first submission to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance so construction innovation can form part of the 2017 federal budget. CCI is also in the beginning stages of planning its first conference and trade show in April 2017, and will make an announcement in fall 2016.

FEATURE | CCA Past Chairs’ Luncheon

The highly-anticipated annual luncheon for the CCA past chairs took place on July 21, 2016, on a warm beautiful Thursday in the upper loft of Charbar, a relatively new culinary destination to Calgary. Surrounded by hardwood floors, large wooden rafters, and red brick walls, a rustic and nostalgic feeling was created in the halls of the historic Simmons Building on the banks of the Bow River. Built in 1912, during Calgary’s preFirst World War boom by the Alaska Bedding Company (ABC), the Simmons Building is a rare representative example

of the manufacturing and industrial buildings which were once situated east of downtown that lined the Bow River. Only it and the Eau Claire Lumber office (1886 Cafe) remain. In 1919, when ABC consolidated its subsidiaries, it became the Simmons Building where mattresses, including the Beauty Rest line, pillows, chesterfields, and military bedding were made until 1966. Now owned by the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation, the Simmons came up for lease about three years ago. Last year, the century-old, two-storey brick building at 618 Confluence Way

Southeast was renovated to house three food outlets, the aforementioned Charbar, Sidewalk Citizen Bakery, and Phil & Sebastian Coffee Roasters, and serve as a community focus for Calgary’s emerging East Village. The historically designated municipal sites’ exterior features were preserved, leaving the distinctive signage. Inside, the building’s defining elements were restored, including fir beams, radiators, and red metal elevator doors. The solid wood floors and all the bricks were cleaned and new metal stairways were installed. South-facing doors were cut into the building and a large chunk of the north, river-facing wall was removed (the bricks remain in storage for a future project) to allow for access to a large patio. Since its opening, the Simmons Building has become hub of the East Village with people stopping in to enjoy the unique culinary trio of restaurants before moving on to other points nearby, such as Studio Bell and St. Patrick’s Island. n
