An exciting new chapter begins - CSC Launches "Bridge" the new virtual chapter.
- Construction Specifications Canada
(CSC) is pleased to launch and grant a Chapter Charter for the formation of the
CSC Bridge Chapter.
Canada's architecture, design, engineering and construction
industry stands as a vibrant and dynamic sector that plays a vital role in
shaping the country's built environment. With a rich history of architectural
achievements, innovative engineering solutions, and cutting-edge design
practices, this industry contributes significantly to Canada's infrastructure
development and urban landscapes.
The industry encompasses a vast network of professionals,
working collaboratively to bring visionary concepts to life. This industry is
driven by innovation, sustainability, and a commitment to delivering
high-quality projects. Moreover, the industry serves as a crucial economic
engine, generating employment opportunities and contributing to the overall
growth of the Canadian economy.
Recognizing the multitude of architectural, engineering,
design, and construction firms spread across Canada, including those operating
in non-metropolitan areas, CSC identified the necessity to establish a new virtual
chapter. This initiative aims to bridge the design and construction community
nationwide, allowing us to deliver high-quality education, training, and
professional development opportunities. By doing so, we aim to advance our
organizational objectives of serving the design and construction industry as a
whole from coast-to-coast.
"Until now, our reach was confined to prominent urban areas and
specific regions. However, this exciting phase marks a significant breakthrough
as it enables us to extend access to CSCs exceptional education, training and
professional development opportunities nationwide and beyond," states Kazim
Kanani, FCSC, CCCA, CSP, CDT, President of CSC.
The Bridge Chapter will be led by Laura Herbert who will
serve as the Chapter Chair and will be supported by Scott Haddy, and Denny
Duong and "Our goal for CSC Bridge is to connect remote members who may face
geographical or other types of barriers to participation in traditional
Chapters, and provide opportunities for collaboration and learning in an
environment that is calibrated to the new paradigm of remote working" noted Chapter
Chair, Laura Herbert.
