Alberta Projects Improvement Network
An industry network dedicated to improving industrial project delivery in Alberta.

What is APIN?

The Alberta Projects Improvement Network (APIN) is a cross-industry network of progressive organizations and leaders working together to improve industrial construction practices in Alberta.

APIN works to improve Alberta's and Canada's track record of delivering successful, productive and capital-efficient industrial construction projects. More specifically, APIN and its founding organizations share a common mission to make Alberta's industrial construction sector Twice as Safe, Twice as Productive and Internationally Competitive by 2020. 

We encourage project owners, engineers, contractors, suppliers, and all industrial construction stakeholders to join our network (it's free!). Through this site, you can sign up to become part of the network, access a comprehensive library of industrial construction resources (best practices, case studies, articles, tools and more); connect with other members of the network, and contribute your own ideas, knowledge and lessons to help other improve. Please explore this site to learn more and then join us!
