Not-to-code balcony construction leads to toddler’s death in London, Ont.

The London Free Press has posted several photos of a high-rise balcony from which a 22-month-old girl fell to her death this week. The gap left between the end of the guard and the wall appears to be much larger than the 10 centimeters allowed by the Ontario Building Code.

Best foot forward

The current state of the economy shows an immediate need for workers following the COVID-19 pandemic, especially when it comes to the manufacturing and construction industries.

Utilities as an expense category covers costs related to the supply and distribution of electricity, gas and water. Although considered a commodity, in Ontario deregulation has made it so that businesses have access to a variety of suppliers - either directly or through brokers.

Regardless of your chosen supplier, costs vary widely based on many factors. Understanding the cost profile for your business means breaking it down into base costs, delivery, demand, supply pricing, contract pricing and rebates.

GlassTalk Episode #27: The Show Must Go On – Teresa Baker, The Buildings Show

The Buildings Show, Canada’s largest construction show happening Dec. 1 to 3 at the Toronto Convention Centre, has been a popular destination for glazing contractors because of the opportunity it affords to take in the broadest possible range of suppliers and conference topics out there. There’s always a nice selection of commercial glazing and façade construction products, but also HVAC, insulation, roofing, concrete and even property management solutions. This time, there’s a building envelope session but also many sessions aimed at “soft skills” in the construction industry: human resources, marketing, leadership, project management and other topics we know are critical but don’t always have time to think about. Since the Buildings Show is returning as a live event for the first time since the pandemic hit, we thought it was time to invite program director Teresa Baker to GlassTalk to give us the full FYI. » Listen now...
