If a firm is to be successful in the business of project and construction management it must have the full confidence of its clients, from the initial stages to commissioning the project upon completion.
Service is an important focus of our management style and we work very hard to meet the expectations of our clients. Testimonials that attest to our management abilities have been received from all levels of the industry.
Throughout the preconstruction and construction phases it was our firm belief that all decisions that were being made by Durwest were genuinely being made in our best interest.
Chief Ron Sam, Songhees Nation
What makes Durwest’s offering unique from others is not what you get in the RFP, it is not the attention to detail, it is not the skills shown in working with the trades but rather it is the real ownership that the team takes of a project – they don’t just do the job, they own it, as if the end result would belong to them, not the client. It is this top-down, team-wide, close personal interest in the success of the project that sets them apart.
Scott Cunningham, Director of Facilities, Victoria Airport Authority
I am pleased to report that our project is on time and on budget, and our success to date is the direct result of Durwest.
Richard Paquette, Former President and CEO, Victoria Airport Authority
Durwest has been instrumental in identifying and documenting key milestones, and developing realistic, comprehensive project plans.
Cheryl Eason, Vice President & Chief Financial Officer, Royal Roads University
From the outset, Durwest took control of the project as the Construction Manager. For the 14 months of construction, they demonstrated leadership skills with both the design and construction teams to deliver the project schedule and within budget.
Shawn Carby, Senior Manager Protective Services, Capital Regional District
We believe that their active participation from the very early conceptual stages of the project contributed to optimizing building plans and constructability of our developments.
Kory Gronnestad, Senior Project Manager, Bear Mountain Master Partnership
Durwest’s many years in the project and construction management business was evident throughout the project as they skillfully utilized their management systems, concise reporting, well structured tendering and attention to detail.
Mike Hooper, President and CEO, Nanaimo Airport Commission
Working with Durwest to deliver the Nanaimo Airport Terminal expansion project was an absolute pleasure. By organizing the consultant team early and often during the design stage, they were able to ask the right questions at the right times, and address constructability issues long before they ever had a chance to materialize. This resulted in a smooth construction process and a wonderfully executed result.
