Boardroom Series: Doug Corbett, Corbett Architecture

Join us on July 6 for a Boardroom Series session with Doug Corbett, MRAIC, Architect| BC, MAA, LEEP AP. Doug's 30+ years experience as an architect in Canada will provide excellent insight into the local construction industry. This event will have a hard cap on attendance in order to provide an intimate setting and allow time for questions so all attendees can get the most out of the session.

Date: Thursday, July 6, 2017
Time: 11:45 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (Speaker to start at Noon)
Location: WCA Office, 1447 Waverley Street
Cost: $20 for members, $45 for non-members (Lunch is included)

Doug Corbett is an architect specializing in the design and planning of ecologically responsive buildings. His completed projects have been recognized nationally and internationally for innovation in design and green technology features, which has become the signature for his design work. He was also recognized with a 2010 Canadian Architect Design of Excellence Award for the new Winnipeg Women’s and Newborn Hospital. Doug emerged as a professional at a very specific period in Canadian history that was defined by the energy crisis and economic downturn of the 1980’s. He studied engineering at the University of British Columbia, and earned a Masters degree in Architecture from the University of Manitoba. Doug is a strong advocate of partnering concepts in the project delivery process with emphasis on design and sound environmental building practices. He has taught design studio at the University of Manitoba, Faculty of Architecture and has lectured on design theory and professional practice. One of the biggest lessons learned, is that no single person is responsible for an entire project and that the success of any building depends on the collaborations between individuals on the building team. Doug was the founding partner of Corbett Cibinel Architects in Winnipeg. He was the lead architect on the Red River College Princess Street campus, winning national and international awards for design and sustainability, including the prestigious inaugural 2006 RAIC Urban Design Award. Doug merged with Smith Carter Architects as a shareholder and design principal in 2008. Smith Carter was acquired by WSP Global in March 2012, and Doug resigned to restart Corbett Architecture, specializing in post-secondary education projects, and design consulting.

Lunch & Learn: Regulated Building Materials - What You Need to Know as a Contractor

Regulated Building Materials - What You Need to Know as a Contractor

As a general contractor, project planner or subcontractor, you have a Provincial regulatory requirement to assess the hazards and protect workers from regulated building material.  Regulated building materials are often referred to as hazardous building materials or designated substances and largely entail asbestos, lead, mercury, silica PCBs and mould. 

This Lunch & Learn session will briefly cover the major aspects of how these materials will affect a construction project and what a contractor needs to know

Who is responsible for what? How do I identify basic materials? How do I protect my workers? Who is responsible for abatement work? What does a consultant do? In addition to answering these questions, attendees will gain a general awareness of the uses and hazards of regulated building materials and address due diligence and regulatory requirements. 

Date: Thursday, March 16
Time: 12:00 noon - 1:00 p.m.
Location: WCA Office, 1447 Waverley Street
Cost: $20 for YCLM members, $45 for non-members. Lunch is included.
