About Eastern Contracting Ltd.
Eastern Contracting Ltd is a general contracting firm operating in the St. John's area since 1979. Our main office, a 7500 square foot facility, is located in Mount Pearl and houses our management support team of seven employees. Our expertise spans the construction industry spectrum, from smaller renovations to multi-million dollar projects.
We specialize in healthcare facilities, commercial, institutional and educational facilities, as well as. high profile government buildings. The majority of our projects have been focused in the municipal, provincial and federal government sectors. Although government projects would be considered our bread and butter, we have enjoyed working with the private sector throughout the years. We pride ourselves on dealing with our clients on a level that will allow us to understand their needs, and we 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. We often find ourselves 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. We are committed to delivering the best end product that we, the contractor, and the owner can take pride in. In the field, we only employ motivated, knowledgeable and trustworthy workers. Our three main Superintendents have a combined experience of nearly 60 years; and like most of our field staff, they have been long-term employees of Eastern Contracting Ltd. We believe in keeping our employees happy and content, and as a result, we have had minimal turn-around in staffing. We at Eastern Contracting Ltd. treat our employees more like family members than numbers in our payroll system. We 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 our projects. Eastern Contracting Ltd. believes in being proactive, that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. As a result, we are committed to the safety of our employees and all personnel entering our construction sites. We have been a good standing member of Newfoundland and Labrador Construction Safety Association since 1997; and we have recently employed a full-time Health, Safety, and Environmental (HSE) Officer to insure all aspects of our projects are executed in a manner that will eliminate injury and Occupational health and Safety shut downs.
In recent years, we have expanded our business into the real state sector through the efforts of our 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. We have also been involved in the development and sale of quality built homes and high end cottages. Fling's Property Management Inc. is our 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. We 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 we had to step up the game when it relates to getting a project off the ground. We knew that we needed an edge on the competition. Not only to make us more competitive during the tender process but to allow us to speed up the
construction in the tough Newfoundland market. As a result, we created Everest Forming Ltd. Everest Forming Ltd., another of our 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.
