Ontario construction is at a crossroads.
Six construction and infrastructure industry associations have combined to commission the Dawson Report, which expresses the beliefs of home and road builders, sewer and water main experts, general contractors and heavy construction about the inflexible apprenticeship ratios of Ontario’s skilled trades. Please check out our story on the Dawson Report and OCOT, including RESCON’s debut column in the Toronto Sun’s New Homes & Condos section which will be featured on a monthly basis.
RESCON’s vice-president, Andrew Pariser, has written his first health and safety column for rescon.com on working at heights, and was interviewed by industry publication CondoBusiness on the same subject. RESCON’s tech guru Michael Steele writes about our recent sold-out Tarion seminar, while our infrastructure advocate friends at the Residential and Civil Construction Alliance of Ontario (RCCAO) are featured in the Daily Commercial News for their report on municipal class environmental assessments and their take on extending work hours for construction projects.
Lastly, Alek Antoniuk provides his expertise in his popular Code News column on the Ontario Building Code.
