On January 9, the Calgary Chapter of CSC will hold a dinner meeting on “Wood Construction and the ABC” at The Winston from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Rory Koska from the Canadian Wood Council is slated to provide a brief update on mid-rise construction in Alberta and British Columbia, as well as touch upon tall wood construction. He is expected to highlight some of the changes in the 2015 National Building Code (NCB) that allow six-storey wood-framed buildings in Alberta.
The chapter is also offering the Construction Contract Administrator (CCA) course. Starting on January 18, the program runs for nine weeks at the Calgary office of S2 Architecture from 6 to 9 p.m.
Designed for contract administrators, property managers, architects, engineers, interior designers, specification consultants, building authorities, and bonding and insurance agencies, the course is expected to provide information related to the administration and enforcement of contract requirements during a project’s construction phase. The Principles of Construction Documentation (PCD) program is a prerequisite to this course.
