Queen Elizabeth Outdoor Pool / Group2 Architecture Interior Design
Arch Daily
The City of Edmonton has a rich history of public pavilions located within the river valley and its extensive park space. The most notable, the Hawrelak Park pavilions designed in the late 1960's by Bittorf Wensley Architects, reflect the landscape through their organically-shaped concrete columns, glued-laminated wood beams and wood-shingled roofs. The new Queen E Pool will continue this tradition. The new facility is tied to the landscape of Edmonton's river valley.

Pour un meilleur encadrement de l'inspection préachat
OAQ
Tout comme l'Association des consommateurs pour la qualité dans la construction (ACQC), l'OAQ souhaite un encadrement législatif de l'inspection préachat. L'inspection préachat n'est pas obligatoire au Québec. Par ailleurs, même si un grand nombre d'acheteurs y ont recours, ils ne sont pas pour autant à l'abri d'irrégularités puisque « n'importe qui peut se prétendre inspecteur en bâtiment », comme le souligne l'ACQC.

Design Build Source
Growth rates in the use of steel throughout North America are set to drop back by more than half in 2013 after demand for the building material surged on strong levels of manufacturing and a pick-up in construction activity, the latest report says.
