This issue, you’ll learn more about economic development, architectural woodwork, and interesting and challenging projects coast-to-coast. A common theme within the stories relates to the industry’s inter-connections. Design, engineering, construction and businesses and communities all co-operate to complete projects combining scale, creativity, and practical applications.
Economic development officers, represented by the Economic Developers Association of Canada (EDAC) can be an important resource in building your business. The economic developers will know what is happening and where future projects are planned for their communities and will facilitate the process of attracting and approving relevant projects. Meanwhile, associations such as the Architectural Woodwork Manufacturers’ Association of Canada (AWMAC) provide technical and marketing support and also help members with regulatory challenges.
As you read these pages, we’re working on enhancing the Canadian Design and Construction Report’s website at www.cadcr.com, including more frequent news updates as we create a national free directory of construction products, services and businesses.
I’m always interested in learning about your business, technological changes and community-service issues. As well, we’ll continue to monitor and support industry-changing initiatives, such as prompt payment legislation proposed for Ontario, B.C., and elsewhere.
