Health & Safety Talk with
Maddison Construction Limited

We love when contractors get excited about health and safety! It’s even better when a partnership with ContractorCheck inspires them to delve deeper into their commitment to a safer workplace. Here’s some info on Maddison Construction Limited (MCL) – a ContractorCheck Accredited company committed to health and safety.
 

Maddison Construction Limited (MCL) was founded in 2008 and has grown steadily into a multi-faceted general contractor based in the Greater Ottawa Area. The company now excels in a range of residential, institutional and commercial work, focusing on structural restoration, concrete and masonry. 
MCL enrolled with Contractor Check in 2013 and received accreditation early the following year. During the certification process - and with Contractor Check’s guidance - MCL designed and implemented an extensive Health & Safety program which has greatly enhanced its offering to clients and stakeholders while ensuring worker safety is kept paramount. Expanding on the importance and benefits of its Health & Safety program, the company has gone even further by developing a comprehensive tracking system to ensure the success of all facets of a project, from project award to close-out. This has enabled MCL to gain an advantage over its competitors and grow exponentially since receiving its Contractor Check accreditation, which in turn has allowed the company to gain traction with increasingly larger clients who value the due diligence and care exercised by MCL in executing their projects.
From the moment MCL steps on site, a rigorous three-stage process is put into motion to ensure each job is completed properly, safely, and on budget:
  • Beginning at the on-site walk-through with project stakeholders, MCL enacts a three-phase, 40-point project initiation checklist which ensures all administrative, health & safety, and site logistics requirements are satisfied so that any concerns are addressed prior to mobilization. MCL’s unique approach provides an additional layer of due diligence and transparency for the client.
  • Once the project is initiated, MCL tracks and records its progress using a variety of internally-developed custom forms including daily construction progress reports, foreman logs and tracking forms, along with other specialized reports for specific types of work.
  • Upon project completion, in addition to the walk-through with stakeholders, MCL completes a close-out checklist which ensures all aspects of the job are properly executed, all submittals are provided, and all parties are satisfied with the results. MCL further follows up with a short survey, soliciting feedback on its performance on the project. The valuable feedback it receives allows the company to address client concerns and continuously improve its offering.
Maddison Construction Limited is committed to providing the best service to clients through the implementation of its extensive and thorough tracking process and the assurance that all work is being completed safely, transparently, on-time and on-budget.
