WHO WE ARE
COAA is an enabler of opportunity, offering members the opportunity to be part of the future of Alberta’s heavy industrial construction ecosystem.
Through collaboration and partnership, COAA’s owner-led membership brings together the heavy industrial construction industry to steward shared goals and priorities critical to a competitive and thriving Alberta.
The Construction Owners Association of Alberta offers to members and non-members, free of charge, best practices designed to improve safety and performance in industrial construction projects across the province. COAA offers Company Best Practices and Project Best Practices.
Company Best Practices are company-wide policies and Project Best Practices apply on a project-by-project basis. Both will help you improve safety and performance on your company’s job sites. Additionally, Resources provide specific Best Practices for ad hoc application when needed.
COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICE
Our communities of practice are forums for COAA members to meet and engage in active conversations on specified areas of interest to fulfill both individual and group goals. They intentionally organize, manage, and steward a body of knowledge from which community members can draw.
Our committees do the important work of filling our mandate. Committee work includes studying how to make Alberta’s heavy industrial construction industry safer and more productive. The work they produce helps position the industry to be future ready.
COAA DIGITAL LIBRARY
The COAA Library contains documents and resources, including Best Practices documents, Power Point presentations, tools, templates and more!
The Library contains 30 Best Practices developed by COAA committees over the past two decades. These Best Practices are presented as a ”master” document (PDF format), followed by individual appendices, forms, checklists, etc., which can be accessed or downloaded individually.
COAA hosts regular virtual webinars featuring topics and themes critical to the heavy industrial construction industry. These sessions are lunch & learn style, held typically over the noon hour.
COAA’s member luncheons offer a unique opportunity to heart from feature speakers on cutting edge topics facing the heavy industrial construction sector. These events are held regularly throughout the year in Calgary and Edmonton.
BEST PRACTICES CONFERENCE
COAA’s signature Best Practices Conference provides a robust forum for the exchange of information and ideas, stimulating leadership, and valuable networking. For almost 30 years, the conference has provided a platform to showcase the development and promotion of two dozen industry best practices.
