They specialize in healthcare facilities, commercial, institutional and educational facilities, as well as. high profile government buildings. The majority of their projects have been focused in the municipal, provincial and federal government sectors. Although government projects would be considered their bread and butter, they have enjoyed working with the private sector throughout the years. They pride themselves on dealing with their clients on a level that will allow them to understand their needs, and they work together to achieve their goals. Eastern Contracting has a reputation of having a construction team consisting of experienced, knowledgeable and easy to get along with professionals. They often find themselves drawn to projects that presents a challenge and requires thinking outside the box.
All jobs, whether big or small, complex or routine, will receive the utmost attention it deserves. They are committed to delivering the best end product that they, the contractor, and the owner can take pride in. In the field, they only employ motivated, knowledgeable and trustworthy workers. Their three main Superintendents have a combined experience of nearly 60 years; and like most of their field staff, they have been long-term employees of Eastern Contracting Ltd. They believe in keeping their employees happy and content, and as a result, they have had minimal turn-around in staffing. Them at Eastern Contracting Ltd. treat their employees more like family members than numbers in their payroll system. They strongly believe employees that are respected and appreciated by their employers, will enjoy coming to work and will have a better work ethic, which is reflected in their projects. Eastern Contracting Ltd. believes in being proactive, that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. As a result, they are committed to the safety of their employees and all personnel entering their construction sites. They have been a good standing member of Newfoundland and Labrador Construction Safety Association since 1997; and they have recently employed a full-time Health, Safety, and Environmental (HSE) Officer to insure all aspects of their projects are executed in a manner that will eliminate injury and Occupational health and Safety shut downs.
In recent years, they have expanded their business into the real state sector through the efforts of their sister companies, Tyson properties Ltd. and Fling's Property Management Inc. Tyson Properties Ltd. is a significant player in the development of high-quality commercial real estate, locally and internationally. They have also been involved in the development and sale of quality built homes and high end cottages. Fling's Property Management Inc. is their newest venture with the development of Miller Estates, a 50 plus rental property which is located in the scenic community of Upper Island Cove. Just 1 hour from the capital city of St. John's, this 7900 square foot condo development consists of nine self-contained high-end apartments. They are currently in the preliminary stages of developing a 24 unit, multi-story condo in Mount Pearl.
After many years relying on other companies that were over worked and under manned, Eastern Contracting Ltd. felt they had to step up the game when it relates to getting a project off the ground. They knew that they needed an edge on the competition. Not only to make them more competitive during the tender process but to allow them to speed up the
construction in the tough Newfoundland market. As a result, they created Everest Forming Ltd. Everest Forming Ltd., another of their sister companies, is a concrete foundation company employing a peak crew of 10-12 people and has been stirring the local industry as one of the best and most sought after foundation companies in the city. Despite Everest Forming Ltd.'s affiliation with Eastern Contracting Ltd., they have been contracted by many of Eastern's competitors to form and install foundations for their projects. Again, this is an indication of the mutual respect other general contractors has for Eastern Contracting Ltd.
Over the past 34 years Eastern Contracting has developed a great attitude and superior working relationships with clients. local venders and sub-trades to help insure a project is completed on time and under budget.See more
