Herold Engineering: A free lunch for your feedback

In the summer of 2017, we sent out our annual Member Survey to get your feedback about our operations and programs so we can shape our member services for the years to follow. As a thank you, we entered all of those who completed the survey in a draw for their choice of the following:

  • Lunch for your team at your favorite restaurant (or caterer)
  • Night out at the movie theatre with your hardworking staff
  • Bowling bonanza for your crew

Out of 150+ responses, Liza Huang from Herold Engineering's Nanaimo office was randomly selected and, as a team, they opted for lunch on VICA. Rosie and Kendra attended briefly to say hello, grabbing a few photos while they were at it.

We'll be sending our 2018 Member Survey in June so stay tuned! Your feedback is valued and helps us shape our programs and member services.

REPOST: Pattullo Procurement Strategy Takes BC Construction a Bridge Too Far

The new Pattullo Bridge Community Benefits Agreement patently illustrates what is unfair with our current government’s policy decision to mandate the nature and extent of procurement requirements in major public construction projects. For BCCA, an association that hinges its principles on fair, open and transparent procurement practices, this agreement is taking public policy in construction tendering a bridge too far.

[Op-Ed] Dana Taylor: B.C. needs prompt-payment legislation for contractors

When was the last time you bought groceries and told Save-On Foods that they would have to wait a couple of months before you would pay them? It would never fly. Trade contractors in British Columbia — those who build the structures in which you live, work, play and study — must also pay their expenses on time.
