17 Apr Success in Saskatchewan
by Mike Isbister,
Saskatchewan has been on the Midwest radar for quite some time. We have had a few jobs in the Saskatoon area and until now, we’ve been able to send our Calgary-based team short-term. It wasn’t until recently, when we were awarded several larger projects, that we realized it was necessary to have a permanent staff member reside in Saskatchewan to effectively manage projects.
After working in both Calgary and Saskatoon, I believe that the construction markets are very similar. As we all know, the economy has been tough across Canada recently, and new construction projects have been quite restricted as a natural by-product. Fortunately for Midwest Group – we have been able to stand out among our competitors.
GC’s in Saskatchewan recognize the Midwest name and associated reputation. Because of this, we’ve been able to penetrate the Saskatchewan market and have been awarded projects such as the Saskatchewan Hospital North Battleford and the Children’s Discovery Museum.
There is so much potential for our company to have a successful future, as Saskatchewan continues to grow. I’m looking forward to seeing how Midwest develops, and I anticipate nothing but good things!
