VIDEO: What was the big construction story of 2013?

The Journal of Commerce polled some members of its editorial advisory board for their thoughts on the biggest story of 2013 related to the construction industry.

ICBA president Philip Hochstein, COCA outgoing president Grant McMillan, BC Building Trades executive director Tom Sigurdson, BCCA president Manley MacLachlan and ACEC BC president Keith Sashaw all gave their opinions on the events and projects that shaped the year.

The BC provincial election, which swept Liberal leader Christy Clark to power in a surprise victory, was the biggest story of 2013 for the industry according to many of the EAB members, but other issues such as shifting workers compensation rules were also noted as significant events.
