BUILDCAST is the Winnipeg Construction Association’s exclusive provider of “pre-bid” construction information on projects in Manitoba. This is an online service in a secure web application, where members have access to search functions to create custom reports relevant to their business.
Through BUILDCAST, we provide a weekly report of new projects – ranging from public, private, and major civil projects in and around Manitoba. We have a dedicated Construction News Researcher who works with various entities and issuing authorities to provide this as a member benefit.
