How quickly the weather has changed! Two weeks ago, sunshine and humidity – now we have frost and dark long nights.
By now many projects have tarps set up for labourers working on the exterior and construction heaters are ready to go once the temperature drops below zero. Days at the site start in darkness and end the same way. It is bit of a gloomy time of year but also the start of trade show season for those who aren’t working on the sites.
In a few weeks, we will be setting up at Construct Canada from Nov. 30 to Dec. 2. You can read details about the show in our special feature in the Ontario Construction Report provincial edition inside the GTA Construction Report. Additional copies have been ordered for sponsors as we dust off the pop up banners and prepare other show materials.
If you are attending or exhibiting at Construct Canada, I encourage you to visit our booth (3207) and, more importantly, to share your stories about interesting projects, achievements or business developments. We’ll have comprehensive coverage of the show in the January issue (the December issue goes to press just at show time) – as we prepare for the next major event, the tenth Ontario General Contractors’ Association (OGCA) Symposium, themed “Building Canada,” which runs from April 6 to 8 at the Blue Mountain Resort in Collingwood.
