CCA is pleased to present the Calgary Construction Association with the 2016 CCA Partner Association Award for its work representing members’ issues to the local government and its ongoing exploration of new education and outreach programs and services.

In 2016, the Calgary Construction Association informed the City of Calgary that it was no longer a preferred client due to its onerous contract conditions. The city and the Calgary Construction Association reviewed 74 clauses of which 62 were amended and agreed upon by both parties. New City of Calgary SGC’s were issued and are now being used on all city projects. In addition, the city also improved the Prequalification of Prime Contractors application process.

In addition to its 70 courses and workshops offered in 2016, Calgary also created an owners, architects, engineers and contractors (OAEC) workshop, out of which arose a custom course and its upcoming workshop that will focus on Lean Construction. Calgary Construction Association has also recently created a Young Leaders group as a standing committee of its association. The group will focus on social, educational and outreach activities, including recruitment of young people into the industry.
