Advancing Preconstruction & Estimating 2019

Advancing Preconstruction & Estimating 2019

Maximizing Collaboration & Integration Across the Entire
Preconstruction Lifecycle | May 20-22 2019 | Dallas, Texas

Advancing Preconstruction & Estimating 2019 will bring together contractors, clients and designers to discover best practices and tools for the entire preconstruction life-cycle from initial project planning through operations handover.

You will benchmark your approach to estimating, design, technology or risk across multiple education tracks, and coordinate with project partners to learn how to forge more integrated preconstruction workflows.

We believe managing the design phase is the most critical part of every project. Let’s get it right!

In 2019, the event will focus on:

  • Accurate Conceptual Estimating & Fast Take-Off
  • Design Collaboration & Design Assist Processes
  • Making Bidding & Subcontractor Management Easier
  • Leveraging Data Analytics & Automation
  • And much more…

Inaugural Canadian Construction Adjudication Symposium

Inaugural Canadian Construction Adjudication Symposium

SIGNIFICANT CHANGE – TIME FOR ALIGNMENT

Presentations • Panels • Reception • Dinner

"… an ideal opportunity for construction professionals and stakeholders across Canada to knowledge share on prompt payment, and the established ethos of adjudication as an internationally recognized method of dispute resolution."

The CIQS is pleased to be an Event Sponsor for the 2019 Construction Adjudication Symposium and Reception/Dinner being held by CIArb and RICS at Vantage Venues (Toronto) on Wednesday, May 29, 2019.

Topics Covered Include:

  • The Latham Report – "Constructing the Team"
  • Striking the Balance Expert Review of Ontario's Construction Lien Act
  • Bill 57 – An Act to enact, amend and repeal various statutes
  • Construction Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. C30 (Current)
  • Building a Federal Framework for Prompt Payment and Adjudication

Inaugural Symposium to Address Construction Adjudication in Canada

The Ontario government is introducing an adjudication process to ease the strain of delayed payment and expensive dispute resolution processes in the construction sector. Other Canadian juridictions, including the Federal government, are reviewing similar initiatives.

As modern construction projects have become increasingly complex, dispute resolution has become a time-consuming ordeal for the industry. Canada is looking to other countries' experiences as examples of how a formal adjudication process can facilitate payment disputes for everyone involved.

Join us in May as we discuss the proposed changes and what it will mean to the industry.

Looking forward to this inaugral event in Toronto with participants including:

Drafters of Provincial and Federal Prompt Payment Reports:

  • Bruce Reynolds and Sharon C. Vogel of Singleton Urquhart Reynolds Vogel LLP

Session Chairs:

  • Marcia J. Oliver, Advocates LLP
  • Richard Wong, Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP

NETWORKING OPPORTUNITY

The CIQS has continued its active participation in the process leading to the proposed federal prompt payment reforms by providing a Stakeholder Submission and following with verbal presentation at meeting in advance of a report prepared for Public Services and Procurement Canada titled “Building a Federal Framework for Prompt Payment and Adjudication” delivered on June 8, 2018 by R. Bruce Reynolds and Sharon C. Vogel with the Secretary of the Review being James K. Little.

Arif Ghaffur, PQS, FRICS, MCIArb, Editor of the Construction Economist, says “This is a relevant and current initiative that is bringing together key industry professional bodies, leaders and experts aimed at cross sharing information in a manner that benefits the Canadian construction industry - one that is sometimes fragmented, we are working hard to enable participants to make informed decisions.”

David Dooks, PQS(F), Chair of the CIQS, says “As an industry, Canadian construction is undergoing a number of fundamental reforms and we are pleased to partner with other professional bodies to ensure that we remain an important participant working alongside subject matter experts.”

As an Event Supporter at the Symposium, CIQS looks forward to participating with professional organizations in Canada that have experience as Authorized Nominating Bodies (ANB's) in the process of adjudication and expounding the ethos of Quantity Surveying at this landmark conference.
