About Gillam Group

Gillam Group – an Ontario-based construction management company established by a collection of highly respected, senior industry professionals with the common goal of significantly improving the way construction projects are delivered.

Gillam Group is a relationship-based company, meaning that we focus on developing and maintaining long-term relationships with all of our business partners.

We are non-adversarial, non-claims oriented and flexible in how we approach construction. Prior to forming Gillam Group, the company’s founders enjoyed successful careers with leading national general contractors in southern Ontario, gaining extensive experience managing large, complex and award-winning projects.

Gillam Group brings exceptional capability and sophistication to projects in the ICI and residential construction sectors. Our involvement with public-private-partnership (P3) projects has greatly informed our approach; in particular, the importance of using the pre-construction period to plan the work efficiently and mitigate risks.

Our Typical Experience Includes: New build & renovations Adaptive re-use Universities, colleges & private schools Laboratory & pharmaceutical Municipal projects Theatres for live performing arts Cultural facilities & places of worship Museums Data Centres Sport facilities Commercial office buildings & tenant fit-up Historical restoration Healthcare Industrial - warehouse, light manufacturing Residential - condo, low-rise, mid-rise, townhomes

Our Culture: We recognize clients have a lot of choice in this marketplace for construction services. Our desire is to be a client’s first choice for projects that are challenging and require “out of the box” thinking.

The key to creating and sustaining a high-performing team that delivers consistently over the long-term is to create the right cultural foundation. Our culture revolves around understanding our clients’ needs, proactively working together and leveraging our shared experiences for the benefit of our projects. Safety on construction sites is of the utmost importance to us. We believe strongly in continuous improvement in all areas of the business. This approach creates a rewarding and inclusive environment for all project stakeholders, as well as high-performing teams over the long-term.

Our Services: Construction Management Projects with complex requirements are often best delivered through a construction management approach. We believe strongly in the value a pro-active, qualified and motivated construction manager can bring to a project. We view construction management as a collaborative process that can succeed only in an atmosphere of teamwork, transparency and trust.

Our qualified team works closely with client and consultant teams to maximize the value of the preconstruction stage. This includes a focus on thorough risk management, i.e. identifying risks as a team and agreeing strategies for managing those risks. Through our experience of highly risky P3 projects we believe proper risk management during the preconstruction stage is essential to crystallize success on projects, and to avoid the pitfalls that plague many unfortunate clients that downplay the importance of preconstruction due diligence. Under this model, the Gillam team becomes a “virtual extension” of the client team where we truly collaborate to achieve exceptional outcomes. Design Build A turn-key approach where Gillam manages all aspects of the project under one roof Gillam Group brings a unique approach to design-build involving a high degree of collaboration with our clients, significant transparency, and an intensive program of preconstruction risk management. Design-build contracting involves far more risk than a traditional contract therefore risks be understood and mitigation measures must be agreed to by all stakeholders.

Gillam’s extensive experience of highly risky P3 projects ensures our clients are in safe hands. Gillam enjoys strong relationships with Ontario’s top design consultants and trade contractors, allowing the firm to create high-performing teams, produce innovative design solutions and deliver successful outcomes beyond our client’s expectations.

General Contracting Professional contracting services based on a fixed price, delivered on schedule and to our client's quality expectations Gillam Group has proven itself to be a capable and trusted provider of construction services on fixed price contracts.

Gillam brings its values to this form of contracting including a high degree of transparency, flexibility and respect for all of our business partners.

Competitive advantages of our firm include a highly skilled estimating team, strong relationships with key trade contractors, strong buying power, low overhead costs and other fundamental cost advantages. These advantages, combined with our thorough approach to preconstruction risk management, position Gillam to consistently win work via this contract model. Many of our projects come from repeat customers. Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) A unique model of creating complete alignment within project organizations and motivating stakeholders to deliver exceptional results IPD is remarkable in that it consistently delivers exceptional results on projects that have complex requirements and/or require multiple objectives to be achieved. The main objective of IPD is to deliver best value however the outcome often delivers low cost in addition to many other benefits.

Gillam is a leader in the Ontario marketplace in IPD contracting, through a joint venture with Canada’s most experienced IPD contractor. Through our research and development within the IPD space, Gillam has developed far-reaching skills that our team can apply to our traditional projects. This includes LEAN and BIM (Building Information Modeling) management tools.
