The SCSA has created a new service designed a new process to help companies develop their own COR/SECOR ready safety program - the Advisor Assisted Manual Build.  This customised approach is unique to each company, with the end result of COR/SECOR compliance, and being ready for the mandatory safety requirments of Central Services projects in the future.


If you attended Harlan Kennedy's session on Best Value Procurement, plan to bid Central Service projects in the future, or are simply interested learning more about how the SCSA can help to improve safety on your sites, this session is for you!

Morning Session:

Project Delivery – Choosing the Best Method

A successful construction project can rely on a number of factors, but is most often described as a project that is completed on-time and on-budget. There are many factors to achieve a successful project, but a critical decision is the selection of the right project delivery model to deliver the project.

This CCDC Seminar session will focus on that process and project delivery. It will introduce the new CCDC 10 ‘A Guide to Construction Project Delivery Methods’ as well as the new CCDC 30 ‘Integrated Project Delivery Contract,’ the first IPD contract in Canada.

Key Takeaways from This Session:

  • Understand the key differences between various project delivery methods, including design-bid-build, design-build, and construction management
  • Articulate important considerations when selecting a project delivery method
  • Compare the critical conditions for the effective use of each project delivery method
  • Learn how to choose the best project delivery method
  • Have an industry-first look at the new CCDC 30 ‘Integrated Project Delivery Contract’ and understand the roles and responsibilities of the parties under an IPD project

In addition, attendees will receive:

When undertaking any construction project, the procurement process and contracting requirements are an integral step in the process. By utilizing best practices when calling bids and awarding contracts, all stakeholders can benefit by avoiding costly misunderstandings, disputes and delays.

It will introduce the new CCDC 23 ‘ A Guide to Calling Bids and Awarding Construction Contract,’ a flagship and industry-leading document for procurement authorities, as well as the new CCDC Master Specification for Division 00 ‘Procurement and Contracting Requirements.’ This new master specification is a first for CCDC, and is part of a longer-term effort to introduce more specification documents through CCDC.

Field Productivity


Contractor success depends heavily on the field production of tradesmen. This seminar will define Field Productivity, discuss the effects of low Field Productivity and outline approaches to increase Field Productivity.


The aim of this course is to provide tools for scheduling at the Site and Crew Level. Site Management (Superintendent, General Foremen and Foremen) influence millions of dollars of construction a year. They must ensure that all resources are being used efficiently with minimal waste. Yet often, they receive very little in the way of training on how to plan and schedule field activities.
