All Under One Roof: Presentations to Enlighten the Building Design Community

Roofing Contractors Association of British Columbia (RCABC) invites you to attend an informative morning and lunch featuring presentations tailored to the building design community.

Shop Drawing Liability – Michael G Demers LLP – Jenkins Marzban Logan LLP
Mike Demers raises thought provoking issues for the design and construction community regarding shop drawing liability. This presentation exposes areas of unclear accountability and potential risk for further examination in the design and construction community. Mike’s practice at JML is focused on construction related matters. This includes advising clients on tendering, construction contract drafting, dealing with on-going project disputes, builder’s liens and, finally, the resolution of claims through trial, mediation or arbitration proceedings.

To LEED or not to LEED: the Pros and Cons of Sustain-able Building Regulations – Michael Geller
As Vancouver strives to be the greenest city in the world, architects, builders and developers are increasingly being asked to create energy efficient buildings and communities. Some municipalities are making rezoning approvals contingent on LEED certification and connections to District Energy Systems. While the building industry wants to do its part to reduce greenhouse gases, some industry experts question whether current and emerging practices are in everyone’s best interest. Michael Geller is a Vancouver based architect, planner, real estate consultant and property developer. Once described as an ‘accidental environmentalist’, he wants to encourage a rational discussion on how best to create sustainable communities without compromising good development and building practices.

Green Roofs and the RCABC Guarantee Standards – Hamish Matheson, RCABC, Technologist

The presentation covers green roofing design challenges and good roofing practices. Hamish is Trade Qualified (TQ) and a Red Seal Ticketed Roofer. Hamish provides technical support to the design community through review of roof details, assemblies, specifications and inspection re-ports. Hamish helps design authorities interpret and effectively use the RCABC Guarantee Standards with the ultimate objective of ensuring good roof design and practices.
