The Construction Record Podcast


Apr 19, 2019

On this week’s episode of the Construction Record podcast, national editor Vince Versace and daily editor Lindsey Cole dive into the second part of their interview with Residential and Civil Construction Alliance of Ontario (RCCAO) executive director Andy Manahan, this time examining the association’s work towards the Ontario government changing legislation regrading changes in beneficial soil-reuse. Manahan also gave an update on initiatives such as a soil-matching update and future plans for digital tracking of truck movements and connecting contractors with those that haul soil from sites.

Vince and Lindsey also take another trip into the DCN and JOC vault, with a look at the April 19, 1979 issue of the Daily Commercial News featuring a battle between Canadian Construction Association councils over documents and a story about roofing that echoes the same low-bidding problems affecting the industry today.
