Our Clients' Comments

George Brown College "The Building occupies 90 percent of the site which produced challenges in environmental clean-up and material storage and handling during construction. The difficulties associated with working on a tight and confining site were overcome with good site management and support from the entire team. The quality of workmanship, attention to detail and professionalism of staff resulted in a beautiful building completed on schedule, and one that we are proud of. Of particular mention was the urgent execution, competent project and site management. Full support from head office, amicable handling of change orders and claims. Warranties are also fully respected with timely response.

Congratulations on a job well done!"

University of Toronto New College Residence "The New College Residence project had several challenging characteristics. The site was very confined located at our downtown campus and this architectural award winning facility had several challenging constructability elements. However, the most critical aspect of the project was the need to have it completed for student occupancy for the 2003/2004 academic year, presenting a demanding construction schedule. We were pleased that Kenaidan successfully managed these challenges in a professional manner. Your project staff, with the full support of senior management, executed a construction program that gave us the results we were looking for - a successful building occupancy!

Based on your performance on this project Kenaidan is ranked in our preferred list of general contractors. We appreciate your team's efforts, professionalism, hard work and contribution to this successful project."

West Park Healthcare Centre "West Park Healthcare Centre worked with Kenaidan Contracting as our general contractor in the construction of the centre's 200-bed long-term care centre. We found Kenaidan to be dedicated to making our vision a reality.

Kenaidan managed the sub-trades in a way that maximized service, while effectively controlling the demands for extras. They provided professional and knowledgeable staff to our project, from the contract manager to the site superintendent. They worked hand-in-hand with us as partners to deal expeditiously with unforeseen circumstances.

It has been a pleasure working with Kenaidan, and we would not hesitate to consider them for future projects."

York University "We have completed several institutional projects with Kenaidan Contracting Ltd. over the years.

We have found their management teams to be highly professional and cooperative, and able to deal with the complex bureaucracy that often accompany such projects.

Our firm has designed many projects for clients such as York University and as such has worked with many general contractors. We would rank Kenaidan Contracting Ltd. at the very top five percentile."

Cara Flight Kitchen "Kenaidan Contracting Ltd. has been the contractor for two recent projects. The first was the design build, $40 million+ Cara Flight Kitchen facility; and the second was the West Park Healthcare Centre, 200 bed, long-term care facility operated by Extendicare Canada.

Our experience has been excellent in that Kenaidan has met the aggressive schedules of both projects, while maintaining a level of quality equal to our expectations. Their commitment to the projects is evident in the quality of teams, their resources, their organizational skills, and their fairness."

St. Mary's Cement "We wish to acknowledge the vital contribution that Kenaidan Contracting Ltd. has made toward the successful construction of the three sets of silos. The partnering effort put forth with St. Marys Cement Inc., the consultants and other contractors, for the design and construction of the three 65 metre tall West Clinker Silos in a record seven months is particularly appreciated.

Your innovative methods of slip form construction, and the experience and flexibility of your on-site management and labour were key components for completion of the Clinker Silos fast track.

We look forward to working with Kenaidan on projects in the future."
