When you make a statement, when you make a budget or when you make a time commitment, you guys stick to it. One of the things that I find the owners are always saying in terms of meeting or going beyond expectations is the timing. You'll make a promise on how long it's going to take you to erect a building and it's always quicker than that time. On all the projects that we've worked on, it's never been Canam's fault for a delay. It's never been Canam's fault for extras. You exceed expectations because you meet the goals and promises that you make. And that's something that doesn't always happen in the construction industry. "
Ryan Munden, P.Eng., Partner, Cleland Jardine Engineering Ltd.
For most customers you deal with, it's absolutely about pricing - they'll kill you for 10 cents! While we do need fair and competitive pricing, what's the value of trust in the relationships we've built? And the integrity of what the senior management at Canam would do or would not do in the event that you run into something unforeseen? And that's given us a lot of comfort. So price is important. Yeah, it's the first step and it is significant, but it's not 100%.  "

They do more than just the engineering, but it's more than two plus two equals four. And it's all in the culture of this company [...] on an overall analysis of the project, I would give Canam’s performance on that site an A+. "
