COVID-19 is having a major impact on how Owners are delivering construction projects throughout Alberta and beyond. Unlike any event in recent memory, this pandemic has pushed our industry leaders to be innovative and collaborative in order to move projects forward. Challenges include risk, contract language, delivery models and procurement protocols, funding, timelines and schedules, health & safety, managing staff and the future of work.
Hear from leaders of three of the Edmonton region’s largest construction buyers: Tracy Allen, Assistant Deputy Minister, Capital Projects Delivery at Alberta Infrastructure; Jesse Banford, Acting Branch Manager, Infrastructure Delivery, City of Edmonton; and Andrew Sharman, VP Facilities and Operations, University of Alberta on how Owners are managing these challenges. Moderating the discussion will be ECA Executive Director John McNicoll.
