The Calgary Construction Association is re-structuring their Lean Community of Practice (CoP) under the guidance of
LCI-C, but don’t worry, those amazing LEAN Coffees aren’t going anywhere!
Lean CoP Coffees will be held on the second
Friday of each month (excluding July & August) from 7:30 - 9:00 am at the CCA.
The morning begins with a speaker or exercise
followed by Lean Coffee. Lean Coffee is a "free space" for people to explore issues and concerns that they otherwise do not discuss.
This free space gives people a chance to try out behaviors, exercise
leadership, get help, give help and grow professionally.
Lean CoP's work to:
network for Lean practitioners and those interested in learning more about Lean
and its applications
and strategies to implement Lean in projects
On Tuesday, January 30, Alberta Construction Association (ACA) sent MLA’s a copy of our Capital Plan Recommendations ahead of the 2018 budget. With the development of schools, funding to various municipal public transit projects, and increasing need for expansion or construction on hospitals the province continues to have infrastructure needs that must be met regardless of economic circumstances.
ACA’s recognizes that jobs are a priority of this government and keeping Albertans employed in good paying jobs is critical to the economic engine. Dramatic swings in infrastructure investment discourage young people from choosing a career in construction, discourage existing workers from remaining in construction, disrupt training of new apprentices, contribute to higher accident rates, and lead to financial hardship for companies.
ACA members strive to provide infrastructure to meet the needs of Albertans in a cost effective, environmentally sustainable, and safe manner. Alberta’s construction industry shares a number of priorities with the Alberta Government to enhance productivity and competitiveness of the Alberta economy.

support, work-related concerns, legal support, financial support, health coaching"

"There's this stigma of a big scary construction worker. When really everyone is just a softy at heart and having kids adds a whole new level of excitement and engagement to the process." - Bradley Morgan, Westcor Project Coordinator
Handmade letters, coffee and doughnuts were brought to the workers as a thank you for building an addition to their new school in NW Calgary.
