The CGCA’s Annual High School Awards - May 15, 2018
Each year the CGCA provides high school students, nominated by their teachers, the opportunity to tour a project site and receive a gift certificate from the CGCA to help them further their future career into the construction industry.
This year, we toured the University of Calgary Mackimmie Library Project being built by Stuart Olson. The students, teachers, and parents had an opportunity to see the demolition phase of the tower project and a 3D model was shown of the finished product, along with details of unique parts of the project. After the tour, food was provided, a few speeches by Stuart Olson, and myself acting as the current President of the CGCA. Ten of us provided five future leaders of construction with their award! We then proceeded to my favorite part of the event; the GC’s, each had an opportunity to share how we got into construction, how our careers developed, and why we love this industry.
It was a great session and everyone had fantastic stories and open discussion.
