Our Specialization

CGI is one of very few firms that provide construction services to our national and international clients coast to coast in Canada.  Our proven experience in delivering consistent, high-quality projects comes from our roots in supporting demanding retail clients.  Our services expanded over 35 years to support commercial, retail, institutional and educational focused clients in the delivery of both account-based services and in the delivery of individual projects nationally.

To ensure consistency in the management and the quality of our service delivery, CGI has put in place the personnel, organizational structure, tools, processes and technology based on the input of our team’s proven delivery of over $40 billion in projects.

Construction Managment (300x197)

CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT

CGI provides expert construction services and acts as the owner’s agent. Trade contracts may be entered into sequentially. As soon as each part of the design is complete, bids for that trade package can be solicited and construction can commence. This overlapping of design and construction is known as “fast-tracking,” a process with which Construction Management is often associated.

GENERAL CONTRACTING

The traditional method of contracting for services and the most widely used is general contracting. The general contractor is responsible for delivering the scope of work established by the contract documents for a fixed price.

Design Build (300x200)

DESIGN BUILD

Exceptional results come from collaboration between the builder, the subcontractors, the manufacturers, the architect, and the engineers. Under the design-build format, design and construction become partners in the construction project, as the design builder undertakes both obligations, and the owner benefits from having a single source of responsibility on its construction project.
