CCO Workshop 2022
The CCO Workshop is a one-day conference where the goal is to facilitate open and transparent conversation between all parties in the construction industry.
This year SICA was playing a bit of catch-up after COVID-19 so we had back-to-back events. This did not come without its share of a little bit of scramble and a whole lot of patience. We would like to extend a warm-felt thank you to everyone that attended and presented. We appreciate your time and the attention you availed to keep abreast of everything that is taking place in the Construction Industry.
The Keynote presentations this year were all about Change. Mark Devolder and Edward Olson had the audience captivated as they spoke on the topic of "Navigating Change and Uncertainty" and "Analyzing Risks Trends in 2022 and beyond". We believe many people walked away with new ideas about what is happening in the construction industry now and how we can work together to build a better future. It is time to work together for a stronger more resilient future for the companies looking to grapple with supply chain, logistics, and employee retention or recruitment.
The Building Resilience Panel included representatives from The City of Kelowna, the Insurance industry, Consultants, and Contractors. Assisting Construction companies in understanding the demands and challenges of each sector. Some of the topics were direct for CCA, BCCA, Legal Updates, and of course an open forum for Construction Rants. This year we had two Breakout Sessions - without being able to come together for two years we felt that there were many beneficial topics that needed addressing.
Risk and Contingency
Contingencies are downside risk estimates that make allowance for the unknown risks associated with a project. How do we manage them?
What is happening to assist safety on construction sites?
Social procurement is a growing best practice that aligns procurement spending to provide added value and community benefits. What may best practice in helping build a more resilient and more inclusive Province?
