by Warren Frey

Anibal Valente is the vice president, corporate, for PCL Constructors Inc. and is the 2015 chair for the Canadian Construction Association (CCA).

We were recently able to interview Valente at the CCA's annual conference, held this year in San Antonio, Texas, a gathering he characterized as an excellent venue not only to conduct business amongst Canada's many construction associations but also for networking and social activities.

Valente addressed some of the CCA's success in the past year, such as Canada's contribution to infrastructure spending and also spoke of the challenges ahead, such as economic uncertainty due to oil prices in Alberta and the continuing difficulty in sourcing enough labour for the industry.

Valente also emphasized the importance of training and education for associations of all sizes, and pointed to technology as an increasingly significant part of the construction industry.
