Compass’s primary goal is to earn a client’s business and trust, then maintain it for the long-term as their construction partner.
We expect to grow our business responsibly by focusing on the needs of our employees and their efforts to service our clients. We will continue to raise the bar on industry best practices and operate with the highest ethical standards.
Every employee and business partner has something to contribute to our construction teams. This belief is the key to mutual success.
Compass conducts all business with the highest standards of honesty and fairness. We can be trusted.
We value men and women of diverse ages, religions and ethnic backgrounds.
Compass employees treat each other and all our project partners with respect.
Technology and construction-specific software will continue to be combined to integrate our processes to effectively communicate with our project partners.
Compass strongly believes in the principles of environmental sustainability. We put this belief into practice every day on both our construction sites and in our offices. All Compass employees have taken an active role in helping the company consume less, pollute less and waste less.
We have the project experience managing all the constructor’s requirements as it relates to a client’s sustainability objectives, including LEED® certified projects.

As a proven resource to our clients, Compass provides a full range of services at every phase of project development - from concept through design development to tender.
Collaboration that will shape the project as it moves forward.
As part of our commitment to client service, we offer a full range of pre-construction services to our clients – often in the very early stages of design development. We provide solid, experience-based guidance on matters such as conceptual project phasing, construction methodology, site review and analysis, and conceptual budgets. We partner with clients and consultants across all disciplines to ensure that project ideas are realistic, sound and achievable.
Optimizing price, quality and schedule.
As Construction Managers, we work collaboratively as a trusted and integral part of the project team. From the outset we assist in the identification of project specific challenges and the establishment of expectations. Together, we identify the best course of action to achieve the project objectives and realize maximum value. We work on your behalf to provide guidance and leadership in the areas of scheduling, cost and value engineering, build-ability and inter-trade synchronization. Our primary goal is to keep costs in check while delivering exceptional quality and rapid progress.
Putting the most control in the client’s hands.
Compass has delivered hundreds of successful projects through the competitive bid process and the CCDC2 contract delivery model on time and on budget. We have long standing, excellent working relationships with some of the best, most experienced subtrades in the industry - both union and non-union. Utilizing the latest in technology and construction-specific project management software, our team is able to efficiently manage the tendering phase and effectively administer the construction phase, delivering projects that our clients are proud of.
You provide the vision, we do the rest.
Our ability to provide innovative, practical solutions while meeting stringent schedule and budget objectives has earned us an exceptional reputation amongst numerous design consultants, engineers and owners across the Greater Toronto Area. Acting as the single point of contact, we work in a partnering role with selected design consultants and engineers to provide cost-effective, high quality total project delivery solution.
