What people say about our workshops...

 Derek is an outstanding course author and facilitator. He creates a learning environment where students not only gain from his vast personal knowledge and experience, but also through specifically structured simulations that provoke high level reflection and critical thinking skills for course participants. Having now hired Derek to deliver 5 different construction industry courses, I cannot recommend him enough.

Executive Director 

Sault Ste. Marie Construction Association

“Just a quick note to say that some of my staff, including my manager of Construction, attended the OCA’s Construction 101 training on November 21st and 22nd. I had an opportunity to get their feedback and the course was described as nothing short of amazing. They had a lot of positive comments on the material and the instructor. In fact, I have received nothing but positive feedback ......”

Course Design

Constructionlab's approach to course design is based on three pillars:


Learning Participation

Stakeholder Diversity

Learning Outcomes 

Our attendee and participant reviews are clear. It is our highly skilled, practical knowledge and deep understanding of the day-to day challenges the construction industry supply chain experiences that sets us apart from any other trainer in Canada.    

Our industry research capabilities and teaching format are virtually unmatched. 


Our Why is very clear!

When a participant approaches a facilitator at the end of a session, extends their hand, and says "thank you for teaching me about things I see everyday, but never really understood".  That is why we do what we do.

It is that simple.


Our delivery model for exceptional and repeat course facilitation relies on a strong network of partnerships.    Working at ground level means exactly that.    Local mixed trade and specialty trade employer associations form the backbone of a comprehensive professional development system.    Constructionlab recognizes the importance of this relationship with the employer members that support them.  

It is crucial that we work together.
