We’re already building for tomorrow.
We view every project through a future-focused lens. This approach challenges us to redefine the way we see, think and work to bring your project to life. We’re here to be your partner. We start off by being good listeners and then find ways to create the most value for your investment.
What We Offer
CW2 Construction and Design Ltd. offers our clients end-to-end project fulfillment. Our people bring their technical knowledge, experience, and resourcefulness to the delivery of our construction services. Driven by a commitment to continuous improvement, CW2 embraces innovative and current construction methods to improve efficiency and enhance client value.
What truly sets us apart from our competition is our people. Their dedication to providing superior service to our clients, resolve for delivering exceptional work, capacity for innovation and problem solving, and unwavering commitment to improving the communities we serve, not only make CW2 a great place to work, but a company with which our clients want to work.
We are equipped and experienced in providing guidance from initiation through close out.
We work alongside our client’s architect/engineer and advise on the feasibility of the chosen design, provide pricing information throughout the design phase, hire and manage all of the subcontractors that will be involved in the project, as well as inspect the work during the construction phase. Construction Management stresses quality over lowest price, but we work hard to get the best value for our clients.
One entity – one contract – one unified flow of work
Our design-build projects integrate the roles of designer and constructor from initial concept through construction. We do this while working under a single contract with you, the project owner, to provide design and construction services.
As your General Contractor we take charge of the complete process of your construction project. We work in commercial, industrial, and residential construction, overseeing projects from tenant infills to complete builds. We provide oversight performance management of the project, our team, and our subcontractors, making sure benchmarks are met and you, our client, is kept informed.
As the owner’s representative we are engaged at the very beginning of the process. We work alongside you, the owner, to identify a budget and your objectives, a realistic schedule based on the project’s goals, and a clear understanding of what success looks like to you, and us. We also identify potential issues and constraints, or value engineering options. We have an experienced team of design, construction, and specialty consultants to deliver on your vision.
We use our knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to manage the project requirements. No two projects are the same and often a project team includes people who may not usually work together – sometimes from different trades and across multiple geographies. We stickhandle all of those team nuances and communication channels for you. Our project management approach includes clearly understanding scope, budgeting, scheduling, and performance requirements. In addition we can coordinate the procurement of labour, materials, and equipment, according to the agreed upon schedule and plan.

Meet Phinn. Named after our friend and colleague that left us in the summer of 2019, Scott Phinney, who also had a deep affection for cats. Phinn was living at the Brandon Pound and we believe he was a street cat so we were happy to give him a job in our shop as Chief Mouser, albeit he spends more time in the office sleeping on a chair, or at the front door. The team has really taken to Phinn, not to mention some clients and vendors who make special trips to just to see him. Phinn has been a good addition, getting into mild and manageable trouble mostly with mud and mice, and has even had some adventures like when he got locked in the closet with his food for an entire night.
