"Construction planning traditionally starts and stops in the project Superintendent’s head. EllisDon’s Construction Planning and Logistics team brings that experience out in the open for all project stakeholders to see and understand; and through collaboration to create more successful solutions for our client’s projects."

-Mohamed Abdalla, Senior Manager, Construction Planning & Logistics

We exist to bring 70 years of EllisDon construction experience to life. Our meticulous project planning and logistics are what set us apart. Our project teams, and specifically, our Superintendents, have unparalleled knowledge and experience in building and civil construction and our planning and logistics team takes that experience to the next level.

We do this by developing unique, innovative and specific solutions for each project and client that allows us to accomplish the goals of budget, schedule and safety. We build the entire project virtually going throughout all the different phases in order to ensure we capture all the technical aspects of the execution. These logistics and phasing plans also are a means to clearly communicate the construction plan to clients, consultants, subcontractors, government agencies and municipalities.

Our services include:

  • Risk identification and mitigation plans (public safety, environmental constraints, underground site utilities, traffic patterns, integrity of adjacent structures and foundations, application of different construction technologies, means and methods or use of different types of construction equipment)

  • Construction phasing and sequencing

  • Construction methodology (development and evaluation)

  • Hoarding and construction access

  • Contractor/subcontractor site offices
