Geographical and societal circumstances create different construction challenges in every country, region, and city. For example, in San Francisco, there’s an expectation to keep up with technology. In Canada, the size of the country is 3.86 million square miles — or roughly the same size as the United States. But when it comes to the population, Canada only has about 37 million citizens compared to 327 million in the United States. Add in the extreme temperatures in Alberta and this creates a unique set of construction challenges.
