4 reasons to partner with CanWest

Turnkey solution provider gives partners peace of mind

In the construction industry, the problem is a common one – hiring multiple contractors that can only service niche needs and then trying, often unsuccessfully, to avoid scheduling conflicts, delays and cost over-runs.

And what if one of those contractors has an electric saw or trencher that goes down? You’re faced with further delays that can topple your development’s schedule and budget like a house of cards.

CanWest Concrete Cutting & Coring offers an unparalleled scope of services that gives project managers access to turnkey solutions to their construction needs, thereby negating the need (and cost!) of hiring multiple vendors.

When complimented by one of the most extensive fleets of equipment in Western Canada, it becomes even clearer why CanWest has been trusted with some of the largest and most unique projects in the country – from runways at the Calgary International Airport to excavation with the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller.

Here are four reasons why businesses are choosing to partner with CanWest Concrete Cutting & Coring:

1. Equipment

CanWest has a full range of state-of-the-art concrete cutting and coring equipment and highly trained operators to service everything from large industrial projects to residential developments.

“We are proud that we can provide our customers access to the newest and most well-maintained fleets of equipment out there today,” says Valerie Hambrook of Canwest. “And because we have multiples of everything, there is no downtime if something breaks down.”

The other benefit of having access to a vast network of equipment is turnaround time on any last-minute needs.

“One of our clients biggest pain points is timely access to equipment,” says Hambrook. “If someone needs a saw in two hours, we get them a saw in two hours. Nobody can do that but us.”

2. Services

CanWest eliminates the need for multiple sub-contractors by offering a turnkey solution to concrete cutting and coring construction or renovation projects.

Just some of the company’s suite of services include concrete cutting and coring, wire sawing, placing and pouring, crushing and breaking, excavation and repairing and sealing.

“When someone calls us, we can usually handle just about anything that pertains to our area,” says Hambrook. “We do excavation, core drilling, every kind of concrete cutting there is. … we’re a one-stop shop. You don’t have to deal with multiple sub-contractors.”

3. On time and on budget

The benefit to having access to a vast fleet of services and equipment is CanWest can better drive to completion on time, and on budget.

“Time is money. If we’re down and equipment is not working, things come to a standstill. And that doesn’t work for anybody,” says Hambrook.

4. Safety

Hambrook notes CanWest operates an industry-leading safety program that includes job-specific safe work practices and procedures, multiple certifications and a stringent environmental policy, hazard assessment and controls.

The company recently invested heavily in a cutting-edge sustainable concrete cutting process where workers can safely recycle the slurry that’s created when they cut concrete. The process separates the contaminants from the water, which can be reused for the next project.

“Environmentally, CanWest is ahead of the crowd,” says Hambrook.
