Welcome to the summer issue of Canadian Design and Construction Report.
This issue reflects the diversity of issues and challenges in the architectural, engineering and construction community, from the beginning of the process – with a look at how the Seller-Doer Model applies for business development – to the conclusion – getting paid; a contentious and challenging issue as initiatives to develop legislation and better practices are introduced both provincially and federally.
There are other stories, ranging from concrete and concrete pumping, to sustainability, building code developments, and construction in Canada’s far north.
As usual, we also publish a coast-to-coast round-up of relevant industry news.
After we send the image files to the printer (and post this issue on the web at www.cadcr.com), I’ll take a few days summer break – before preparing the next issue to be published in September.
As always, if you have story ideas, suggestions, or simply wish to express your thoughts, your comments are most welcome. You can reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
