GENERAL CONTRACTING

FTC is one of the Region’s finest construction companies with years of experience as a licensed general contractor in ICI construction projects in both the province of Quebec and Ontario. We can help realize your vision. As the general contractor, FTC provides a confirmed price–after design is complete and before construction begins. FTC executes the project and generally assumes the risk of cost overruns based on clearly defined budget and scope parameters.

This method appeals to clients who have the resources and construction experience necessary to independently contract with the architect or engineer and general contractor. While it requires a longer schedule, you maintain greater project control, and may benefit from the reduced risk that is inherent in other project delivery methods.

The client is responsible to retains an architect or engineer to design the project and to prepare the necessary drawings and specifications. After the architect/engineer completes the drawings and issues them for pricing, the client selects the general contractor through a sole source or a competitive bid process.

A sequential design-bid-build process, typically delivered under a lump-sum or cost-reimbursable contract, is the traditional method of project delivery, especially for the public sector, where work is awarded to a construction company according to a competitive bidding system.

CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT

Under a Construction Management contract, the client secures the services of a construction manager to work with the design team and, depending on the client’s needs, with trade contractors and suppliers.

This early collaboration in the construction management process promotes effective project coordination and communication from the start, creating an environment for success. FTC is a flexible construction company that will operate under various contract types and fee structures (e.g., cost plus, guaranteed maximum price, percentage fee, and fixed fee) to meet the client’s needs.

As construction manager, FTC applies its construction management expertise in the areas of construction costs, schedule, and market trends to help ensure the project is executed within your fiscal guidelines. FTC’s goal is to value engineer projects to find alternative construction methods and materials that will result in quality enhancements, serviceability, and life cycle improvements.

FTC provides advice on all project costs, minimizing the risk associated with having an incomplete scope of work during preconstruction. The final cost, however, remains the decision of the Client, as all project costs are typically reimbursable.

DESIGN BUILD

FTC Clients can select a design-build arrangement when they want to work with one contract entity, instead of several contractors and consultants. As the design-builder, FTC provides comprehensive design and construction services through one point of contact by bringing all project team members together in the design phase to help foster a more successful partnership.

Drawing on the team’s combined expertise, FTC addresses project design and building construction requirements, within the budget and schedule parameters, resulting in less potential for project escalation. Also, FTC can implement a fast-track approach, starting construction before the total design is complete. This is important if you require the delivery of a cost-effective, quality facility on a reduced schedule.

BUILD TO SUIT

FTC has a strong track record of delivering superior projects tailored to customers’ specific needs. The company has constructed build-to-suit facilities for a wide variety of customers. We can tailor and manage the full build-to-suit life cycle and turn-key solution, including site selection, land acquisition, facility specifications, permitting, construction and ownership.

Our collaboration with customers begins with the creation of a multidisciplinary team comprising our own project specialists and third-party experts and alliance Partners when required. This network of top industrial real estate professionals supports our success in development activities. Throughout the project, our build-to-suit team remains focused on four objectives:

  • Alignment with the customer’s goals and objectives

  • Commitment to customer satisfaction
  • Industry-leading design and specifications
