On behalf of the District of Kitimat, I congratulate Progressive Ventures on a “job well done”… From the tendering stage to completion…, we appreciate your firm’s diligence and honesty throughout.
Spanning more than 37 years of distinguished history, we have built a reputation for being able to deliver a variety of services. We take pride in being able to cater what we offer and how we offer it to the individual needs of our clients.
Please have a look at the service summaries included below for an indication of what we offer but keep in mind that every project delivery is slightly different based on individual needs.
Progressive Ventures has developed a team of highly qualified and experienced management and site supervisory personnel capable of undertaking all types of major construction projects. Our client list is extensive and varied in both the private and public sectors. We work in conjunction with high quality and competitive sub contractors and suppliers.
“Safety first is safety always” is our motto and goal for every project. Our team makes every effort, at substantial completion stage, to ensure all deficiencies, warranty items, as-built drawings, and maintenance manuals are completed expediently and in an efficient manner.
Construction Management is a service where we act as the Owner’s representative to manage their project. We generally get involved at an early stage in the project to assist with feasibility, budgeting, scheduling, and design development. We prepare tender packages for sub-trades, assist the owner in selecting and implementing trade works, and we remain involved throughout the project to manage the sub-trades and ensure the project stays on schedule and budget.
Cost Plus Work
Many projects have unknown scopes of work attached, demanding timelines, or owners who remain very involved. In some of these cases, the most appropriate method of contracting is to agree on fair rates and work on a “Time and Materials” or “Cost Plus” basis. Many of our smaller jobs and excavating and trucking services are executed in this manner.
General Service Agreements
Many of our clients are utility or infrastructure companies, large industrial plants, or consulting organizations. Essentially any client that has recurring work of a similar nature may be well served with a General Service Agreement. In these cases we have a pre-negotiated contract and rates for a duration such as a year or two. This allows us to be called to work on a moment’s notice.
Project Delivery System is created in which the design and construction services are contracted by a single entity known as the design-builder or design-build contractor. In contrast to “design-bid-build” (or “design-tender”) where an architect is hired separately produces plans which are put out to tender, and a contractor is selected, usually based on the lowest price.
