JOHN WILKINSON, PRESIDENT

Founder John Wilkinson was drawn to the system of Construction Management early in his construction career. He discovered the team-oriented approach during the building design period to be beneficial to the project cost and schedule. He preferred the client/designer/builder relationship created by the Construction Management approach, as opposed the conventional and often adversarial “Stipulated Sum” system of contracting. John decided to direct his future career towards learning and understanding the various construction techniques and systems, so that he could assist Clients and Architects in the process of constructing quality buildings efficiently.

In 1977 he launched his company in Edmonton. The new company would provide practical design advice, budgeting, and scheduling for its clients during the project planning and pre-construction stages. When the project proceeded to construction, clients would be kept involved and informed about Trade Contractor selection, construction costs, and the project schedule. Project costs would be controlled and closely monitored so that clients would not be caught off guard with cost overruns.

John believed that providing this pre-construction service would result in more efficiency in building design and cost, and consequently more satisfaction for his customers. During thirteen years in Edmonton, the company managed the construction of custom homes, community league buildings, churches, industrial warehouses, multi-family residences, commercial buildings, and office improvements.

In 1986 John relocated to Toronto. After constructing three projects in the GTA, he decided he needed better familiarity with the new locations and went to work for one of Toronto’s well-established construction companies. Over the following nine years John worked for three reputable contractors while he prepared to re-establish his company business. During these years working mainly in high-rise construction, he gained the knowledge, experience and necessary contacts to provide a personalized Construction Management service to the development industry.

In 1995 John re-launched his company and has since managed the construction of multiple low-rise and high-rise residential projects, retirement and nursing homes, church renovations, self-storage facilities, industrial warehouses, schools, and numerous office and retail renovations.
