When: March 24, 2022 | 11:00 AM EST

While it is exciting the Canadian construction industry is discussing and implementing some new contract procurement models for capital projects, good explanations of the pros and cons of each model, and when to use each model, are still needed. This presentation will discuss these aspects of some newer collaborative contract models, along with the mechanics of why they result in better projects, and some tips for better procurement with these models.
Brian Maksymetz is a Civil Engineer with over 25 years of varied Project Management experience from working for the Owner, the Engineering Designer, and the Construction Contractor over his career, in both the public and private sectors, with a particular focus on municipal and industrial water treatment. Brian is an expert in project procurement contract models and works as a Director of Project Development with Graham’s Civil Infrastructure Division in Calgary.
Andrew Hill has overseen Graham’s Buildings business operations in Ontario for the last four years, having moved from Graham’s Edmonton Business group in 2018. He has 28 years of construction experience working throughout the UK and France before joining Graham in Canada in 2013. Originally starting life in the construction industry as a Steel Erector, Andrew moved through the roles of Field Engineer, Site Manager, Project Manager, Operations Manager, District Manager, General Manager and then Vice President of Operations.
Natalie is a professional engineer with 25 years of experience in both the private and public sectors in project development and construction.

Procore is one construction platform that connects the entire project team, from the office to the field and across companies, providing one place to work together to do what they do best – build. 

Designed with construction in mind, the platform provides access — from any device — to a single source of accurate and timely data (e.g. drawings, images, RFIs, invoicing, timesheets, scheduling) reducing miscommunication, errors, and rework; eliminating delays; and maintaining history for future projects and dispute resolution, with a real-time, consolidated view of the entire project - so users know if projects are on-time, on-budget, and course-correct quickly. 

Users also have access to analytics to make sense of their data, gain a deep understanding of their business and improve decision making. 

With an office right here in Toronto, we’re proud to partner with TCA members as they look for ways to build smarter together.

TCIC Featured Courses Of The Month
Why invest in women in construction?

The construction industry is booming, and it seems wrong that so much energy and resources are focused on filling roles, instead of delivering projects. The Construction Institute of Canada (TCIC) understands how stressful this can be. This workshop focuses on improving employee retention by developing leaders from the talent that exists inside your organization. Female talent can often be overlooked. We focus on identifying and developing that talent. Our curriculum is designed based on the Canadian Construction Association’s Gold Seal standard.

The curriculum includes:

Female Leadership in Construction:
Understanding the difference between transactional and transformational leadership models and when to lean into each style. 

Core Values:
Understand your internal motivations and how to inspire other people.

Social And Emotional Intelligence:
How to influence others and build relationships. 

Sponsorship Vs. Mentorship:
How to create opportunities for yourself and others.

The Leadership Mindset:
How to manage self-doubt, imposter syndrome and how to think strategically.

Project Bid Opportunities
South End Community Centre

The City of Guelph is seeking tenders for the construction of the South End Community Centre 

The new multi-use community centre is 165,000-square-foot featuring a twin pad arena, an aquatic complex, double gym, multi-use program and meeting room spaces, and an indoor walking track and warm-up area, will be built on existing City-owned lands immediately south of Bishop Macdonell Catholic High School on Poppy Drive.

The facility’s green initiatives, which align with the City’s Community Net Zero Carbon and Corporate 100% Renewable Energy (100RE) goals, will result in 62 per cent energy savings and 85 per cent savings in greenhouse gas emissions. Through an energy-conservation-first approach and incorporating renewable energy generation, this takes the City one step closer to achieving its goal of 100 per cent of energy from renewable sources by 2050.

It’s estimated it will cost $80 million to build the new community centre, with 85 per cent covered by development charges and the balance funded through taxes.

Construction is expected to start in 2022 with an opening date of fall 2024.
