AbstractCan building activities go on all year round? In some countries this question does not arise, but in the northern hemisphere it poses a real problem. Before World War II very little attention was paid to it, but in the regions where snow, frost, storm and rain are normal phenomena during a part of the year the building industry has been trying, since 1945, to solve the problem of the usual start- and-stop operation. In this article a Canadian researcher of the Division of Building Research, National Research Council of Canada, Ottawa, tells the story of a successful change in the minds and habits of contractors and workers in his country.
