Alberta Construction Association News

Due to the changes in the tariffs on gypsum, ACA and the Alberta Wall and Ceiling Association reached
out to Alberta Infrastructure (AI) to discuss what will happen with the increasing prices of material.
AI completed a detailed review of their standard forms of contract. They have concluded that the
contracts include provisions to ensure that where Tariff increases occur during the course of a contract,
the direct cost associated to the Tariff are to be passed onto AI for payment.
In this regard, it is only the direct cost of the Tariff that is eligible for payment. All other costs such as
general increases, mark-ups or overhead and profit are not to be applied.

CCA Calls for Government Approval of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project

In a letter to the prime minister, CCA called upon the federal government to give a swift go-ahead to the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Expansion pipeline project. This project has received the “green light” from the National Energy Board (NEB) and is awaiting cabinet approval. The letter states that pipeline capacity is critical to the country’s long-term economic competitiveness and that while there may be some Canadians that dispute the NEB’s conclusions, on balance, CCA feels the review process was fair, comprehensive and sufficiently robust to ensure that the proposed expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline should proceed subject to the numerous conditions placed on the development to ensure the project minimizes any adverse impacts on the environment.
