OAA/OGCA Joint Best Practices Statements

The Ontario General Contractors Association (OGCA) and the Ontario Association of Architects (OAA) issue jointly produced documents recommending best practices for standard industry practices. “It is in everyone’s best interests if we are all working from the same songbook,” said Kristi Doyle, the OAA’s Executive Director.

“I think it is important that we as general contractors have good communications with the people who are designing the buildings that we construct,” Clive Thurston, President Ontario General Contractors Association said. “That eliminates a lot of problems”.
