Our experience and expertise ensure high quality and certainty:

  • We have worked successfully as Construction Manager and General Contractor on many projects. As construction phase leader we work closely with the design team, through project and individual trade meetings, to address issues that emerge during construction.
  • Our Project Managers, who have more that 65 years of combined experience, intimately understand how to manage projects and the changes that inevitably occur. They methodically communicate and apply our Change Management process from inception to financial resolution and physical implementation.
  • Our team of Senior Estimators has more than 25 years of experience in providing reliable project costing and budgets commensurate with the level of design. We also draw on the knowledge and experience of our Project Managers to accurately assess the cost of construction methodologies. Hence, we can provide you with the cost information you need to manage your costs and to keep within your client’s budget.

Our attitude towards safety runs through every level of our company. Taplen senior management promotes and supports a safety-conscious culture with their employees and trade contractors while continuously enforcing the company’s Health and Safety Policy.

With our rigorous processes that minimize risk, with our attitude and commitment to the safety of our people and trade contractors, you can be confident that your construction sites will be safe places to work—places where practices often exceed provincial safety regulations.

To meet industry standards, they receive education that includes Gold Seal Certification for Project Management and Estimating. Over the past five years, Taplen has been a member of the Infrastructure Health & Safety Association™ (IHSA) the construction sector safety group for Ontario.

We are proud of our safety record—only 512 lost time hours in 6 years. In 2012, we have had no lost time hours or serious injury.
