Never mind this weather: spring is here.
And here’s the cold truth: we’re proud to be partners with George Brown College for the Residential Construction Management Certificate program, which helps up to 15 students per year become fully capable of being a Tarion-qualified builder.
However, the graduates join builders in junior construction management positions that need to be filled: residential project manager, project coordinator, site coordinator, superintendent and estimator.
But they can’t do that without the help of our members.
That’s why we at RESCON have made it our goal to create more awareness around the project. We need help to make sure these students, who are graduates of the three-year diploma in construction engineering technology, can get the practical, on-the-job experience to fill boots on construction sites around the GTA.
You’ll read about it in our blog at least three times, starting today (see below), as well as in the Toronto Sun in the coming weeks.
Speaking of the Toronto Sun, our monthly column continues to much fanfare (at least here in the office) as I highlight the success story of Greater Houston, America’s fastest growing metropolitan area. It’s a must-read for anyone who’s interested in urban growth.
Alek Antoniuk’s very popular Code News returns with the focus on living off the grid; Andrew Pariser talks about rate changes to the WSIB; Michael Steele’s Tech Corner features his recent letter to Minister Glen Murray; we congratulate Hamilton for releasing a six-storey wood-frame permit, Ontario’s first since the change to the Ontario Building Code; international wood-frame builds far above six storeys; and RCCAO’s report on wait times for locates as well as their reaction to the partial sale of Hydro One.
