Technical Bulletins

Technical Bulletins

The Winnipeg Construction Association Standard Practices Committee is responsible for the development of recommendations to improve tendering and contracting practices. The Committee promotes improved procedures for tendering, standard contract documents, (CCDC and CCA) and facilitates discussion between other professional organizations in the construction industry.

In 2002, the Committee completed a review of the Manitoba Technical Bulletins with the Manitoba Association of Architects. These are available for review and printing. In addition, the WCA Standard Practices Committee has several documents that are NOT endorsed by other professional organizations at this time, but which are nonetheless important for the industry.

WCA Practice Bulletins

Practice Bulletins, on a variety of topics, have been developed by the WCA Standard Practice Committee. It is hoped that local professional organizations will consider these topics for future joint Technical Bulletins, however, at the present time these represent the views of WCA alone:
