Area Operations Manager at Flatiron Construction

Flatiron Construction

Moving to Canada in his youth, Octavio Flores soon developed an interest in the construction industry. At 19, he purchased his own equipment and began working on small commercial and residential projects before rising through the corporate construction ranks, winning numerous awards along the way. Today, Flores holds an executive position with Flatiron where he leads a team of over 30 professional staff and oversees projects across Western Canada.

Flores is recognized for his decades of experience in complex projects (worth up to $17 billion) and management of alternative and traditional delivery contracts. He is most notably accomplished in the construction and management of bridges, light rail and high-speed train systems, hydroelectric dams, highways, freeways, airports, tunnel boring, and open surface mining.

Outside of Flatiron, Flores is actively involved in many industry associations. He speaks at his university, volunteers with humanitarian events, and engages his network to help build affordable housing for families in need.
