Gurkawal Sandhu Operations Lead
“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement.”
Why did you join Re(Construct)?
My reason for joining (Re)construct Calgary campaign is to make a difference by improving the current strategies of construction practised by the companies which affect our environment to a large extent. We often see that a lot of companies and contractors don’t treat the construction waste efficiently but just dump it in the ground causing a lot of soil pollution. My team members and I want to make each individual aware of how much construction waste can affect our environment in the coming future and what measures we can take to prevent that from happening.
What are your goals individually and for the Re(Construct) team?
Our goal as a team is to reach 80 percent diversion of construction and demolition waste from landfills. In addition to that, we also aim to spread our message to other cities in Canada and reduce construction waste nationally.
