Whether we are designing, building or managing
a project, the following industry terms describe three of the several
options available to clients:
Design-Build construction delivery method is appropriate for many
projects. Environmentall takes on the responsibility for both the
design and the construction of the client’s project. We then
assemble a team consisting of architects, engineers, estimators,
accountants and project managers so we are all involved in meeting
the clients’ expectations. This delivery enables the fastest
construction turnaround, while offering the time during design to
discuss environmental efficiencies.
Managing the complex aspects of a major construction project can
be a difficult and time-consuming task. Orchestrating the array
of trades, engineers, architects and other members of the team requires
a management contractor with a high degree of skill and versatility.

with a comprehensive management of all aspects of the project, from
conception to completion.

for every project. We have the expertise and specialists to ensure

knowledge, experience and collaborative approach to construction
management. Environmentall will deliver a successful project

team (owners, architects, engineers, consultants, subcontractors,
etc.) in understanding your needs and working together to deliver.
Together, the Environmentall team will ensure that design intent,
budget and schedule implications, construction feasibility and
lifetime maintenance needs are incorporated into decisions from
concept through to close-out.
Environmentall’s Quality Control will
begin when your project is awarded and continue long after it
is completed. All subcontractors selected to work on your project
will be required to participate in this Quality Control and
Improvement process and all aspects of your project will be
subject to continual Quality Control. As one of the front runners
in green general contracting, Environmentall combines both thought

one objective. Environmentall will achieve this through the

Working to achieve the WSIB’s goal of
Environmentall believes that everyone involved
in any project should be able to go home safely at the end of
the day to his or her family and friends. Job site safety is
taken very seriously. We have adopted a "zero injury"
policy, based on our commitment to the Construction Safety Association
of Ontario. We are pleased to be able to bring additional value
to our clients through lower insurance rates for each project
and offering the guaranteed security of unsurpassed safety.
Resulting from our deep commitment to safety, we have established
numerous innovative programs and approaches, which will be put
in place on your project.
This accomplishment is achieved by carefully
pre-planning all safety requirements and training needs. At
the same time, we lead and require the same from our subcontractors
as we continue to monitor and review the safety needs for any
project, including pre-task planning regarding job hazard analysis.
Environmentall is proactive in our focus
on job site safety. Our superintendent along with our safety
director will oversee safety programs and training on your site.
All on-site personnel will be held accountable for job site
safety. Whether a new employee, trade contractor or veteran
worker, if they see a hazard or problem they will be empowered
and required to fix the problem or inform the superintendent
of the hazard.
This effort will provide for an efficient
and safe work environment before the task is even started. Crews
will know exactly what is being done, who is doing it and what
type of tool or equipment is needed for the specific tasks.
5. Infection Control Procedures
The containment of the job site is essential
when working in an environment that has immune compromised occupants
either living or working in the subject location. Meeting the
Infection Control requirement starts with pre-planning, review
and coordination with the Infection Control or Safety Officer.

requirements are met before any work takes place. The following
