Nova Scotia Construction Sector Council

Why is CANSTech important for Atlantic Canada’s Construction Industry?

Technology is constantly changing and becoming an integral component of the productivity and success of the construction sector. Not only does it play a role in the lifecycle of a construction project – everything from design, build, through to testing and commissioning, it can also be used as a tool for career awareness and recruitment of tomorrow’s workforce. It can provide real-life experiences to those who are unable to get the opportunity to visit an active job-site.

What is NSCSC preparing to bring to the trade show?

The NSCSC is excited to bring their “Augmented Reality Experience” where participants can experience what it is like walking a structural steel I-Beam hundreds of feet in the air in a green-screen trailer. As you walk to acquire a bucket of bolts, you will feel the beam beneath your feet, see the traffic below the project and hear the bustle of construction all around. In addition to the I-Beam walk, the NSCSC will showcase our Mobile Construction Experience’s “Spot the Hazards” (virtual reality) experience along with our Trades Exhibition Hall’s welding inspection activity.
