3rd Annual OAEC Workshop

The third annual Owners, Architects, Engineers and Contractors (OAEC) Workshop will take place on Wednesday, February 25, 2015. 

This workshop is structured to bring all industry partners together in a collaborative environment to interactively discuss practical everyday topics of common interest. Often each party does not understand the world that the other lives in, why things are done in a certain manner and the impact of those decisions on others. Open dialogue encourages the industry to collectively find best practices for common issues.

The unique aspect of this workshop is the "How To" roundtable sessions held in the morning and the afternoon. Each of these sessions is designed to engage 8-10 people through a discussion paper on the topic and find solutions with each of the partners providing input. These roundtable sessions are collaborative and interactive; not the typical speaker presentations. 

Topics: 
  • How to Make a Project Successful - from conception to occupancy
  • How to Embrace BIM - a valuable tool from design to facility management 
  • How to Utilize Electronic Technology - embracing its use in procurement and on the construction site 
  • How to be Good Leaders - removing roadblocks through collaboration and trust


Registration Deadline - February 18, 2015

Women In Construction Luncheon Welcomed over 160 Women and Men 

The Calgary Construction Association (CCA) was proud to host its third annual Women in Construction (WIC) Luncheon this year. The event, which was held at the Coast Plaza Hotel on Thursday, January 22, 2015, featured guest speaker, Michelle Phaneuf, P. Eng, C.Med. Her presentation “Say What You Mean Without the Mean” gave the audience insight into how our minds work, and how to get your message across without triggering a defensive reaction. The presentation was well received as women in the construction industry sometimes struggle in what was once a man’s world. 

The event welcomed over 160 women and men from all sectors of the construction industry. Joanne Foster, WIC Committee Chair gave an overview of WIC’s achievements from 2014, and proudly announced two new WIC scholarships of $1,000.

The City of Calgary - Public Protection Site Safety Plans 

Effective June 19, 2013 The City of Calgary will require public protection site safety plans to be submitted as part of the process to receive a building permit. A public protection site safety plan must be submitted concurrently with a building permit application.

Partial building permits for work below grade may be issued prior to a complete review of the site safety plan by The City.

This requirement is new for the construction industry and The City of Calgary. The City will require that drawings be submitted before construction or demolition occurs.
