Elite Celebrates 30 Years of Construction Excellence

Elite Construction Inc. (“Elite”) is pleased to announce that 2017 marks its’ 30th year anniversary of delivering construction excellence in the Southern Ontario institutional, commercial and industrial marketplace. Established in 1987, Elite has grown from a modest construction operation in York Region into an integrated regional construction firm located in Vaughan. Over the past three decades, Elite has evolved from a boutique size company providing tenant improvements to a firm that offers a full complement of professional services including but not limited to general contracting, design-build, construction management and project management. The cornerstone to our success is our approach to building strong relationships with our clients, consultants, staff, sub-trades and providing exceptional customer service. With our guiding principles of Organization, Commitment and Execution, and capitalizing on our collective expertise and commitment to excellence, Elite has experienced tremendous growth in the healthcare, education and public work sectors. As a result, our growth and success is due in large part to our commitment of delivering our projects safely, on schedule and on budget. The Elite Team is grateful and delighted to celebrate 30 years of quality construction services while contributing to the diverse landscape of significant infrastructure across Southern Ontario with key projects such as Fleming College’s Kawartha Trades and Technology Centre, Peel Region’s Administration & Reporting Station, Active Response Bay and Data Centre and the West Don Lands Revitalization Project.

Chippewas of Nawash New Elementary School Project wins 2016 Wood WORKS Award

The Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation, New Elementary School Project located in Cape Croker, Ontario is the winner of the 2016 Ontario Wood Council – Jury’s Choice Award. Architect: MMMC Architects | Engineer: Blackwell The Kindergarten to Grade 8 School was designed and sited to respond to the remoteness of the location and the rugged beauty of the west shores of Georgian Bay. Great care was taken to respond respectfully to the sensitivities of the land and the culture of the First Nation. The main structure is heavy timber hybrid with heavy timber beams and roof deck. Supplementary steel columns and bracing were used where practical or more cost effective. A ceremonial space is located centrally within the school on symbolic crossroads to the Place of Knowledge. Equipped with simple earth sourced materials including stone and wood, the volume is generous and tall, like ancient forests. Silhouettes of thunderbirds cast shadows to the north mimicking monumental cliffs of the surrounding land. Minimalist wooden benches furnish the space which is dedicated to the ancestors and history of the First Nation. Wooden screens inspired by indigenous motifs are used throughout the common areas to control noise and screen mechanical systems from public view. The screens, reminiscent of woven baskets, enhance the spirit of the structure and connect this new building with local culture and heritage. –

“A new urban park in Toronto serves as more than just a public “green” space…constructed atop a massive flood protection structure on a former industrial site, the park features buried pipes, pumps and water treatment equipment, as well as an artificial marsh and carefully contoured land, all designed to effectively channel storm water”
