MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 2 /CNW/ - EllisDon has announced the launch of
EllisDon Construction Consulting Services, a new division that will offer
several different intellectual capital consulting services to the broad
In order to address what EllisDon believes is a large and unserved global
market, the company is making available its construction experience and
knowledge, in a variety of fields, to the industry as a whole. Consulting will
be offered in four service groups: Risk Management Services, Project Analysis
and Delivery, Building Sciences and Human Resources Consulting.
In addition to the new Consulting Services division, EllisDon will also
be launching an on-line construction community forum called econstruction.com.
The forum will be open to anyone who wants to share ideas, new methods, and
ask questions about anything related to construction.
States Geoff Smith, President and C.E.O. of EllisDon, "We don't want to
be limited to merely building buildings anymore, instead we are offering to
help anyone involved in the building process - clients, contractors,
subcontractors, lenders - to ensure their success, get them to another level,
become more efficient, make more money. These services offer new ways to build
new revenue and brand new relationships and partnerships, based on expertise
which we already have and infrastructure which is already in place."
EllisDon believes that its 55+ year history in the construction industry,
in which it has faced almost every building challenge, will give clients a
unique perspective into their own specific construction problems. It is this
"inside edge" that has been a key factor missing to date from other providers.
Says Mr. Smith, "Where people are providing these services, they aren't
builders. When we say something will work, we KNOW it will work, and are
prepared to participate and guarantee."
The new Construction Consulting Services and the econstruction.com
community forum are in line with EllisDon's open and collaborative approach to
business. Geoff Smith summarizes the company philosophy, "That's our key goal:
to talk, to build relationships, opportunities, and knowledge with as many
people in as many different places as we can. To put everything on the table,
and see what we can build together."
