A Milestone Year at Bronte Construction
2017 was a transformative year for Bronte Construction. This year we experienced our largest internal team growth to date, we had an exponential increase in projects, we formed new divisions and expanded our services, and we were honoured to receive notable awards and certifications.
As we begin the last quarter of the year, we want to thank our amazing team and share some of these tremendous highlights with you.
Number 10 on the 2017 PROFIT 500 List
Bronte Construction is excited to be ranked number 10 on the 2017 PROFIT 500 list of Canada’s fastest-growing companies.
As PROFIT 500 puts it, “The 500 companies listed here [on their list] vary dramatically by region, industry and size, but they have one thing in common: They’re in serious growth mode at a time when most businesses decidedly are not. They are the entrepreneurial superstars Canada’s economy needs.”
New Growth & New Service Divisions
In 2017, we experienced significant client and project growth, we grew our business, and we added new divisions to enhance our services.
We are proud to say that we expanded our environmental division, where we focus on our transparent and thorough project implementation process to ensure that, wherever possible, our work can proceed with the least amount of environmental impact.
Our organizational growth allowed for the creation of an underground construction division, where we focus on utilizing new technology as a means to perform drill and shoring system construction with decreased cost and disruption.
Overall, our growth enabled us to enhance our project implementation capabilities. This has allowed us to continue to improve on our concentrated efforts to provide thorough front-end examinations to reduce challenges and implement solutions, while mitigating against project creep — saving our clients both time and money.
