Every business can, and should, make the world a better place.
We acknowledge that we have a significant role to play in our community. It drives us to create opportunities for everyone. And, take diverse ideas and perspectives into consideration – even incorporate them into our projects.
Much of our work follows community benefit agreements. This ensures that a portion of project investments is put back into the community we’re building in.
This strategy allows us to:
- provide employment opportunities for local people
- expand diversity in local businesses
- reduce poverty
- utilize first source hiring
- eliminate social isolation and incorporate local purchasing
- secure work, offer skills training and provide fair wages to underrepresented groups
As a B Corp, we look at all the ways we can use our business to make a positive impact on the world.
As a general contractor, we have a multi-layered supply chain that we leverage to support local economies and social enterprises through social procurement practices. When we enter a community, we work with local governments and trades to source labour from within the community. We choose sub-trades and vendors that are willing to do the same and seek out partners that prioritize the environment and social causes.
Working together, we can leave lasting impressions on the people and places where we build.
