Getting to know one-another is just the beginning. Sticking together is a sign of progress, but only by working together can we be successful.
CGI is committed to doing good things for our community. We know we don’t do it alone. We work with qualified suppliers and subcontractors who commit to safely delivering quality work to our clients. Our priority is the relationships we build over many projects, over many years, and the achievements we create for our clients by being successful together.
Working with CGI
While every project is different, you should expect consistency when dealing with a general contractor. We continually work at improving our methods of collaborating with trades, and are committed to supporting trades both on projects and over the long term.
CGI freely offers Procore to our subcontractors on all of our projects. The platform allows us to work collaboratively, invoice promptly, and save time and money.
At CGI the lowest qualified bidder gets the job. Period. If you’re on the bid, it’s because we are confident you can do the work. We don’t accept bids from trades we haven’t qualified, no matter the price. With CGI you will only be competing against peers, trades who can meet the high standards we expect from everyone.
How we help trades be successful
Signing a contract with CGI does not mean ‘everything is now your problem’. While risks and costs and terms are defined, we still have a lot of grey matter between our ears that we’re going to share. If we can find a better way to do something, we’ll do it. If we can buy something for a better price than you, we’ll buy it. When another trade isn’t performing, our job is to get them going, not only for our benefit, but for yours. We know what it does to you when you can’t work efficiently. At CGI, our goal is to help everyone be successful.
Always fascinated by the continual changes in design and construction, Thomas is inspired by the trades he works with as they overcome the trials of change and work together to achieve the goals of the project teams. An avid golfer, it’s the accuracy needed in the game to get the perfect score, the right number, that excites him. It is this attention to detail, and an openness to new ideas, that engages trades and enables him to support their success in winning work.
