"I think this building should be added to the Construction Management 101 textbook in terms of the quality of this building, finished on time and under budget."

Stephen Carpenter | Enermodal Engineering Limited

"We chose local firms, including contractor Melloul-Blamey Construction, not only to support local expertise but because of previous positive experience with this contractor and their commitment to creating a high performance, triple LEED Platinum (NC, CI, and EBOM) office that is also the most energy-efficient office in Canada. Many of the LEED points needed to achieve Platinum are almost exclusively the responsibility of the contractor and require extreme diligence and going beyond typical construction best practice. Melloul Blamey and their site superintendent went above and beyond expectations and achieve these credits (over 90% of construction waste was diverted from the landfill)."

Linda Thompson | Manager, Planning & Management Services, Walkerton Clean Water Centre

The Melloul-Blamey team was extremely cooperative and helpful during the construction process, and always focused on the most appropriate way to resolve the inevitable challenges on site. Their commitment to and understanding of the construction and submission requirements was critical to ensuring LEED® certification. They were an important part of the project's success."

David Strucke | President Navtech

Mark Bingeman | General Manager Bingemans
