  • Construction industry's changing role is vital for prosperity in B.C. - ICBA - Independent Contractors and Businesses Association of British Columbia
    projects get off the ground so our workers have jobs for today and tomorrow Traditionally construction companies could simply look at the economics of a project and if numbers made sense it was worth the risk Today it is much different than even 10 years ago A construction company not only weighs the economics of a project but they must also consider its social economic and environmental impact They understand that the more expansive these impacts the more difficult it becomes for proponents and investors to gain public and government support That s where the role of the construction industry comes in today Our role now is to not only build projects and communities but also to educate stakeholders government and the public about the benefits of these projects There is a greater emphasis on collaboration and leaders in the construction industry must also be focused on gaining public and government acceptance Everyone has a role to play in this new collaboration Even the building trades the founding fabric of the socialist movement in B C are realizing the resource development ahead We welcome it because we have an opportunity to change the course of our province The potential prosperity boom before us will allow B C to be an economic engine It means hundreds of spin off projects for business of all sizes Homebuilders will be needed to help build communities in these areas Contractors plumbers electricians and all construction trades will see increased work as a result of this economic growth It means construction jobs for generations It will only be potential if we don t act together and take on this new role on behalf of future generations Post navigation B C s balanced budget provides certainty and stability for the construction industry BC Utility Commission decision
