When Smith Bros. & Wilson Ltd. (SBW) takes on a project, it brings the approach of “a true, traditional contractor,” Senior Project Manager Rick Murray says. “We self-perform and do our own concrete work so we have more control over the project.”

The company is bringing that approach to the Surrey Biofuel Processing Facility, which it is building in Surrey, British Columbia. The 14,500-square-metre building, Murray says, will recycle organic waste.

“Organic waste comes in the building, goes through processing and creates biofuel and compost,” he says, noting that this diverts waste from landfills. “It is source separated organics – comprised of food and yard waste.”

Keller Canada is renowned across its home country for its ability to take on any project that requires piling or extensive ground engineering solutions. The company is often called upon to design and self-perform jobs ranging in size and complexity from single-pile projects that take less than a day to multi-year projects involving thousands of piles with multiple pile types and technologies. 

“Where possible we like to engage in a partnership with our customers from the earliest stage of a project where we can apply our value added engineering excellence and innovation to find new and better ways to get the job done,” Senior Vice President Jeff Grieder says. 

Madsen’s Custom Cabinets’ investments in its staff, equipment and operational efficiency have made it a go-to provider of architectural millwork in Alberta.

Madsen’s Custom Cabinets’ ongoing projects include work on the new Royal Alberta Museum in downtown Edmonton, slated for completion in 2016. 

The Statesman Group of Companies specializes in developments that offer relaxation and interest, whether for vacationing or retiring. The companies have resort clubs, condominiums and Manor Villages designed for elegant and exciting senior living.

“The Statesman Group of Companies is approaching half-a-century of leading innovative and award-winning developments throughout North America,” the company says. “Our slogan, ‘What a Beautiful Way to Live,’ remains our guiding principle.”

Statesman Resort Clubs can be first or second homes, whether used for full-time residence or for vacationing. “Each property offers a serene location and atmosphere for relaxation, golf, skiing or a special adventure planned for you and your family,” the company says. “Try a vacation adventure, and you will want to repeat the experience through ownership of your own resort property.”

Convenience is typically the goal of a mixed-use development as housing, retail and other services come together to reduce some of the hassles that accompany everyday living. Eagle Creek Village in View Royal, British Columbia, is just one example of a mixed-used development that achieves that objective.

Currently under construction, Eagle Creek Village is a 10.4-acre mixed-use development located next to Victoria General Hospital. Omicron Development, a Vancouver-based design and construction company, is developing the property.

Community Focus

The developer describes Eagle Creek Village as a vibrant, community-focused development that will provide much-needed quality rental accommodations and offer a convenient, desirable location for commerce, socializing and shopping. There’s little question that the development will succeed in reaching those goals.

Lisgar Construction is a Canadian company and third-generation family enterprise that attributes its longevity since 1955 to consistently maintaining an experienced and dedicated team of key personnel, at both administration and field levels. Over the years, Lisgar has acquired a reputation for providing quality workmanship and fulfilling commitments on time. Developing a good client relationship is equally as important as constructing a good building – you must earn your client’s trust and respect and never take it for granted. Lisgar has sustained corporate relations with many clients for more than half-a-century by continually striving to provide its clients the most efficient, competitive and professional quality of service.

Over its long history, Lisgar has built and developed a wide range of projects, such as The Cookstown Manufacturers’ Outlet Mall, which has been a great success since opening in 1996. Lisgar was involved with the project from its initial conception for the planning, design and construction of the various phases. The Cookstown Outlet Mall, with over a quarter-million square feet, was the first regional tourist destination outlet mall in Ontario and now is part of the Tanger Outlet chain. It continues to be a very successful commercial tourist destination that is well known and easily recognized by its original landmark, a 160-foot-high water tower.
