For those workers who have full time status, and have been with the company since Go-Live have it pretty good! This company abuses part-time contract workers. Scheduling workers to be in the office from 7am to 3pm then back in the office for emergency graveyard shifts from 12am to 8am back-to-back. Not only is that unhealthy to the employee, but puts your customers at risk. Having sleep deprived representatives answer gas emergency calls! Shame on you Fortis! Secondly, most management personnel have never been on the front lines taking customer service calls. So coaching sessions become quite the joke. No constructive feedback can genuinely be given by someone who has never been on the phones. Lastly, just don’t work here.

Helps if you have the trade tickets and your own hoe: I’m on a farm and had the right topography so was able to get away with open discharge. If you were going to get a loan to purchase a property under 10 acres that had an existing sewer pump out you would be required to change to a field system to meet standards. Depending on soil type field systems can run you 15 to 40 grand or more. If you own the qtr around the acreage you can use a pump out system. A two year wait is absurd.

This is the culmination of a five year process starting in focussed on developing a set of documents defining BIM Level 2 and providing best practices for achieving compliance. A shortage of data scientists to help them to do this has become an acute problem. Put another way the construction industry had to move from thinking analog to thinking digital in just five years. The utility industry has been going through a similar transition in moving to what is called a smart grid and distributed generation.

Some think that this process will take 20 years. Energy is going digital more rapidly than expected. Uber and Airbnb are classic examples. Both are the largest or second largest companies in their respective industries. It specified requirements for achieving BIM Level 2, sets set out the framework for collaborative working on BIM enabled projects and provided specific guidance for the information management requirements associated with projects delivered using BIM.

Deborah Rowland, Head of Facilities Management, Government Property Unit, Cabinet Office in the UK Government outlined the Government’s motivation and plans for a program to improve the post construction handover and operation of newly constructed buildings. Every speaker at the conference referenced these documents. Level 3 will enable the interconnected digital design of different elements in a built environment and will extend BIM into the operation of assets over their lifetime.

It will support the accelerated delivery of smart cities, services and grids. Is the UK construction industry ready for April 14 ?

Identity theft charges in Port Moody after reported mail theft But FortisBC has told engineering staff it intends to fill the old inch pipe with concrete and leave it in place, which the company says is standard practice. Discussions between FortisBC and the city over the project have been ongoing for more than four years.

And because of the impasse, FortisBC recently took the issue to the BC Utilities Commission, where it is seeking approval to move ahead with construction without a permit from Coquitlam.

Published Wednesday, October 10, 8: While no FortisBC infrastructure was damaged when the Enbridge pipeline ruptured and ignited, the utility relies on the pipeline to supply natural gas to its customers across the province, including in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. Two pipelines have been shut off while crews respond, and FortisBC estimates about 70 per cent of its customers — or around , people — could lose gas supply before the situation is resolved.

Doug Stout, vice-president of market development and external relations for the utility, urged customers to use natural gas sparingly in the meantime. But conserving natural gas is a tall order for restaurants, where the majority is used for food preparation. FortisBC has natural gas storage facilities in the Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island that will help supply the system during the pipeline shutdown, and there is another pipeline from Alberta to southeast B.

Regulation and improving the location accuracy of underground utility networks The uncertainty in the location of underground utilities costs the U. A leading cause of highway construction delays is missing or inaccurate information about the location of underground utilities. One of the reasons that utility network owners such as gas, electricity, and water distribution companies and telecommunications operators have not been motivated to improve the quality of the location information about their infrastructure is the nature of state regulation of liabilities in the construction industry.

Liabilities in this context refers to who is responsible when an underground cable or pipe is hit during an excavation. The North American regulatory framework is in contrast with the French model which is designed to result over time in improved information about the location of the nation’s underground infrastructure.

The installation process will then move to Kelowna, the South Okanagan, Similkameen and Boundary and then back to finish off the Kootenays in late After a few safety scares with smart meters in Saskatchewan, FortisBC wants to assure customers that before a contractor installs the new meter, the hook-up will receive a close safety inspection. The inspection will flag any unusual wiring, broken government seals, broken or cracked meter base lugs and will include a voltage check.

There is a charge for opting out of the new meters, as well as a charge for future manual meter readings. This covers the vehicle and labour costs incurred for the ongoing manual reading process. The society has launched a campaign against the smart meters, citing electrohypersentitivity, a highly debated physiological condition the group claims is worsened by the electromagnetic frequency emitted from the new meters.
