VIDEO: What was the biggest story of 2012?
To commemorate the end of 2012, the Journal of Commerce has asked several construction leaders what they thought was the biggest story for the industry in 2012.
The answers varied for each individual, with Independent Contractors and Businesses Association citing the resilience of the British Columbia construction industry and Vancouver Regional Construction Association head Keith Sashaw agreed, citing the recovery of the industry over the past few years.
Michael Ernest, the executive director of the Architectural Institute of British Columbia, pointed to the ongoing enquiry into corruption in Quebec’s construction industry as an important bellwether for honesty and clarity in the industry.
