The City of Calgary update for Building Permit applicants of buildings five storeys or greater in height

When a Building Permit has been issued and a Public Protection Site Safety Plan (PPSSP) is required, a related condition will be noted on the File Manager’s Safety Codes Officer’s Notice. It will state:

The permit applicant is responsible for contacting 311 to request
a Pre-Construction Site Safety meeting.

To better serve industry customers seeking to follow up on their PPSSP and the mandatory Pre-Construction Site Safety meeting, The City has built a process in which the Building Permit applicant can contact 311 and request a Pre-Construction Site Safety Meeting. The caller will be asked to provide four pieces of information:
  1) Building Permit number
  2) Site address
  3) Builder representative’s contact name
  4) Builder representative’s daytime phone number

Once the information has been provided, the noted builder’s representative will be contacted by an Inspections & Permit Services (IPS) staff member within one business day. IPS staff will then work with the builder’s representative to coordinate the site safety meeting.

Being Highly Effective with Everyday Construction Disputes - March 19 

The cost of the everyday disputes that arise on and off the jobsite is staggering both financially and emotionally. These disputes rob people and companies of time and money and in many cases entangle many into a legal nightmare where everyone loses. We have a system that is built for “arguing” issues, usually legally, and weak on “preventing” issues. And, these everyday disputes will crop up day after day around conformance and defects, deviations from plans and specifications, extra and out of scope work, delays, RFP’s and Requests For Information, or just plain old personality clashes.

If you have heard the phase, “Our people are our greatest asset” then you have been exposed to a common yet somewhat misleading management axiom. In truth, it’s only when your people’s strengths and skills generate the right behaviors that you will see the real “Return on People”.

This 90-minute seminar will provide tools and processes for establishing a sound performance management culture within your company.
