CCA Quality of Documents Report

The Canadian Construction Association (CCA) recently embarked on a series of “Quality of Documents” workshops across Canada to explore and discuss the issue of poor quality documentation, its potential causes, and perhaps most importantly, potential solutions to address the issue.  In total, twelve (12) workshops were held across Canada, involving more than 600 representatives from all stakeholder groups, including Owners, Architects, Engineers and Contractors.

This issue is one that has remained on the CCA radar for a number of years, and was most recently referenced during a CCA 2014 Industry Summit as a key issue impacting our industry in the coming years. These workshops provided the opportunity to explore the causes, as well as potential solutions for the problem. The workshop structure allowed for open and candid discussions on the topic, and included an anonymous survey to rank the impact of potential causes and issues related to quality of documents.

With the workshops now complete, CCA is pleased to be publishing a summary report of both the workshops and the surveys conducted. In the report, readers will find the top five identified causes with the greatest impact on document quality, as identified from more than 400 survey results.

 

This report has been circulated to the Association of Consulting Engineers – Canada, Construction Specifications Canada, RAIC/Architecture Canada, requesting their feedback and proposed solutions.  The CCA Standard Practices Committee plans to review all received feedback and recommend solutions to this important issue at the Board meeting in June.

If there are any questions or comments on the document, please do not hesitate to contact the HCANL office or CCA.
