Working with Confederation College in Thunder Bay ON, Constructionlab was engaged to design and deliver a 10 day and 18 day introduction to construction trades program for delivery to First Nations communities in Ontario. The curriculum design and content was completed in an accelerated 90 day time period to prepare for delivery from September to December in various FN communities. A total of 35 students were engaged from 4 communities who attended the sessions.
At the request of Sault Ste Marie Construction Association, and the Sault Career Centre, Constructionlab built a 2 day best practices and industry insight program as part of the 8 week curriculum of hands on learning for students wishing to enter into a career in the construction sector. The session was delivered to 2 cohorts in 2020 and will be delivered to a third cohort in July of 2021.

“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 ..."

"As with all projects that we have worked together, and especially in the case of the Canadian BIM Council experience, I found that he conducted himself in a professional manner and with great integrity as you would expect of any business leader. The vision was exciting but the task challenging and Derek was the perfect leader to take it on. Derek's passion, effort, focus and time invested to get it started was truly amazing and the achievement significant. Our industry was changed for the better and because of his vision, Building Information Modeling evolved into a major driving force in our industry"
