Chandos Construction Inc. and Bird Construction Inc. announced they have entered into a three-year partnership for the Building Good initiative.

Established in 2021, Building Good is a thought leadership initiative that aims to catalyze owners and industry partners to “change the way the architecture, engineering, and construction industry designs and builds for the betterment of people and the planet.”

“Every business can and should make the world a better place. The construction industry in particular has a significant opportunity to take the lead. At Chandos, our business model is built on this very belief. Some of the ways we put this into practise is by partnering with social enterprises, hiring at risk youth and diverse talent, and by working towards a net zero future,” said Tim Coldwell, President, Chandos.

Through this partnership, Chandos and Bird aim to drive sustainable change through the promotion, discussion, and execution of Building Good’s three focus areas: industry transformation, equity and inclusion, and sustainability.

Our ESG pillars have a natural alignment with Building Good, its three focus areas, and its vision of driving positive change in our industry.”
