Stakeholders within the construction industry here will on Thursday this week be exposed to a greater knowledge and understanding of the best practices in construction as Dominica rebuilds in a resilient manner.
JARS Sales and Services Ltd., SCL and Simpson Strong-has collaborated in hosting a Training Symposium on Thursday April 5th, 2018 at the St. Alphonsus Parish Hall in Goodwill, aimed at demonstrating the proper installation of timber ties, particularly as it relates to the building of roofs.
JARS Sales and Services Ltd. (JARS) is primarily known in the Construction industry for road works, retaining walls and water tanks and is the supplier of Simpson Strong-Tie on island. Steve Astaphan says the first session will be for technical stakeholders.
Simpson Strong-Tie is a world leader in the construction industry, providing customers with products that enhance the strength and safety of their structures. It will have a number of its items on display at the training symposium.
Astaphan believes he has a corporate responsibility to play a part in helping Dominica achieve its goal of becoming the first climate resilient nation, and this symposium he says is just one of the ways in which it is doing so.
