On May 28th, Constructionlab through Grand Valley Construction Association held Ontario's first practical session using the Ontario prescribed court forms, a full review of language of prompt payment and adjudication procedures as defined by the Construction Act. Attended by 25 contracting firms, architects, subcontractors, and suppliers, it was an intense discovery session that is invaluable to any company operating in the ICI construction industry.
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.

Constructionlab is built on a model of industry partnership. At the local, provincial and national level, we are trusted partners in delivering timely and relevant professional development. We aim to set the PD standard in Canada.
Constructionlab's approach to course design is based on three pillars:
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.
