At ADCOR CONSTRUCTION & SONS, we approach construction as a collaboration between client, designer, consultants, and sub-contractors. We STRONGLY recommend that you ask any potential contractors the following questions. Unfortunately accidents can happen, and you may be held liable if the contractor is not covered.
Does the company have a minimum of $5,000.000.00 liability insurance?
Do they provide a dated copy of the proof of liability insurance addressed to you specifically?
Do the staff have all MOL [Ministry of Labour] legislated safety training such as valid working at heights, where required?
With the exception of specialty contractors such as electricians, all work on our projects is undertaken by Adcor Construction & Sons staff. This gives us full control of where our people are assigned and prevents delays. Our crew is committed to produce work of the highest quality and all our projects are assigned a site foreman, project manager and office manager. All our clients are met by the company owner and have access to him at all times.
Other questions to consider are :
Is the work predominantly undertaken by their staff or subcontractors?
Does the company employ professionally certified Red Seal Carpenters / Apprentices to undertake the work?
Who is on-site managing my project and who is ultimately responsible for my job? Are you a construction firm or a project management firm that will simply subcontract all the work?
Will the company be responsible for acquiring all permits related to the project or is the client responsible to procure their own permits?
