About

We built our business by focusing on how to better manage commercial leasehold improvements. Over the decades, we’ve seen it all, and this insight has allowed us to demonstrate cost-savings for clients across the GTA.

Our time management and programming methods, combined with our technical know-how in mechanical, electrical, and communication systems, helps us direct our clients through the project decisions that are part of any build.

We apply these best practices in ways that optimize your corporate real estate plan. We challenge our clients – and our team – to think of areas not often considered. By questioning everything upfront, we ensure that all objectives, cost parameters, time limitations, and ongoing operational constraints are factored – so you’re left with a space that works.

Design
Consulting

We work in partnership with the building owner, architect and design team to integrate design intent and construction techniques with budget realities.

To do this, we inspect the existing base building systems, prepare preliminary budgets, review drawings and provide technical advice costing during the entire design development process.

In collaboration with all project stakeholders, we prepare a Master Project Schedule that clearly outlines critical dates with respect to tendering, construction, and other aspects directly relating to the construction process. This includes our advice on best ways to manage delivery dates of long-lead items and pre-ordering opportunities.

Tender Creation and Management

In our experience, only an open and transparent communication style keeps us all focused on creating a win-win-win working relationship for everyone.

Together with your stakeholders, we pre-qualify subcontractors for each division and prepare a list of recommended bidders, review contracts and prepare all scope of work before preparing and issuing tenders. Once tenders are received, we make our recommendations and negotiate the contract on your behalf.

Construction
Management

From start to finish of the construction management phase, we serve as the owner representative on site – ensuring all work is conducted to spec, timeline, and budget. Your site supervisor is on-site through the duration of the project participating in meetings, providing reports on site conditions and evaluating any and all changes.

Back at the office, we provide thorough management of all technical and financial administration from progress payments to building permits to labour contracts.

Post-Construction
Support

After the job is done and the trades have gone home, we view our relationship with our clients as far from over – managing the co-ordination and preparation of a pack-age of all warranties, maintenance manuals, schedules, etc., for the equipment and materials are supplied as required.

Because we’ve managed so many office moves over the years, we are also often called upon by our clients’ operating staffs to ensure a smooth and proper takeover – including any necessary training and instruction.

Edify Recycles

Edify has a recycling program for floor coverings, paints, doors, frames, hardware, millwork, electrical and plumbing fixtures, all having recently been reused to renovate the Portage Drug Addiction For Children.

Ask us about our recycling programs in order to mitigate the storage and disposal costs for redundant office furnishings and equipment.
