Chandos Construction 2023 Winner

Top Innovator

Chandos is one of North America’s most collaborative and innovative commercial builders. It is 100% employee owned and a strong advocate of collaborative construction.

What makes them an innovator:

  • Chandos has committed to procuring at least 5% of their addressable spend with social enterprises and diverse-owned businesses by 2025. They have also developed a nationwide social procurement directory.
  • Their team has adopted Building Information Modeling (BIM) and virtual design and construction (VDC), with over 50% of their project portfolio utilizing these technologies. They have also implemented 4D scheduling, which has streamlined construction processes and reduced costs.
  • They were the first and largest B Corp Certified commercial builder in North America and remain one of only a tiny handful who hold this certification in the Canadian construction sector.
  • They recently launched an environmental, social, and corporate governance dashboard to track their social spending, waste diversion and greenhouse gas emissions, and diversity statistics.

We remain committed to driving industry-wide change by setting standards, sharing knowledge, and collaborating with stakeholders to create a more sustainable future.
