LEED - Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) system was developed in the early 1990's when a need was realized for a standardized green building rating system to affirm and encourage green building. Penn-Co became involved with LEED early on and has since completed numerous projects that have been certified as Green buildings by the Canadian Green Building Council.  Our GREEN projects range from Healthcare to Education and are located in urban environments and remote locations as far North as Churchill Manitoba. Penn-Co is dedicated to saving the environment and that is evident in the projects we build.

General Contracting

A general contractor refers to a group or individual that contracts with another organization or individual (the owner) for the construction, renovation or demolition of a building, road or other structure for a fixed price. They are responsible for the means and methods to be used in the construction execution of the project in accordance with the contract documents. This would include the supplying of all material, labor, equipment, and services necessary for the construction of the project. To do this it is common for the general contractor to subcontract part of the work to other persons and companies that specialize in these types of work. 

Penn-Co has more than fifty years experience as a general contractor completing millions of dollars of work. Our experience as a general contractor is diverse with hundreds of projects successfully completed in the institutional, industrial, environmental, commercial and residential market sectors, including numerous renovations. As well, we have extensive experience acting as a general contractor for projects in First Nations communities.

Design/Build

Design/build refers to a construction project delivery system where the design and construction aspects are contracted for with a single entity known as the design-builder or design-build contractor. The design-builder is usually the general contractor, but in many cases it is also the design professional (architect or engineer). This system is used to minimize the project risk for an owner and to reduce the delivery schedule by overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project. Where the design-builder is the contractor, the design professionals are typically retained directly by the contractor. 

Over the past 15 years Penn-Co has diversified its project delivery methods to include design/build contracts. Our experience in the design/build area is also diverse with numerous projects successfully completed in the industrial, environmental, civil and commercial market sector.

Construction/Project Management

Construction Management refers to a business model where one party to a construction contract serves as a construction consultant, providing both design and construction advice. The construction management company becomes engaged in the project to act as an advisor to the owner, to which they are contractually tied. The construction manager's role is to provide construction advice to the designer, on the owner's behalf, design advice to the constructor, again on the owner's behalf, and other advice as necessary.

More recently we have completed projects as a construction/project manager. Several projects have recently been successfully completed with Penn-Co acting as the construction/project manager, primarily in the institutional and residential market sectors.

Integrated Design Process

Integrated design is a collaborative method for designing buildings which emphasizes the development of a holistic design. The process requires multidisciplinary collaboration, including key stakeholders and design professionals, from conception to completion. Penn-Co's involvement in IDP projects has been a positive and rewarding experience. We excel in this environment and our team of dedicated professionals provide information and expertise throughout the process. By being a part of the IDP team we are able to assist in bringing projects in on time and on budget without compromising quality and functionality.
