General Contracting

Traditionally general contracting projects are awarded based on a stipulated sum tender undertaken once the design and drawings have already been developed, which provides limited opportunity for value-add services beforehand.

Once the contract is established our mandate is to work for our clients and protect their interests throughout the process. To us, each new project presents an opportunity to forge a new relationship or build upon an existing one. Therefore, in terms of financial accountability, safety and project leadership we treat all projects like they are our own.
