In recent years, engaging in a construction project has been seen as a high-risk venture, with uncertain results. Going over budget is the norm instead of the exception. In many projects, the Owner has the most to lose and the poorest representation. Relationships with contractors and designers can be adversarial and sometimes litigious.

Your capital investment is at risk, but it doesn’t have to be.

We’ve developed an innovative approach to construction project delivery that we call the “Vigilant Way.” It establishes an Owner’s Project Manager (OPM) to represent the Owner (you!) in all matters. We manage the construction project on the Owner’s behalf to reduce risk, keep it on schedule, and increase ROI.

“Vigilant Management’s attention to detail and tenacity in helping the contractor meet project schedules was invaluable. Job meetings were collaborative and results­-oriented which helped foster a positive contract experience.”
— Derek Button ­ Manager, Facilities and Technical Services, Marine Institute

Relationships Before Dollars

We’re working to earn your trust for your current construction project, and frankly, for every project you embark on in the future. We make every decision with our long-term relationship in mind. We are a local company that cares deeply about this Province and its people.

Pursuit of Perfection

While actually achieving perfection may not be realistic, we believe that our relentless pursuit is core to our success and high standard of results.

Lasting Impact

We see the profound effect that our clients and their projects have on the community. We work every day to eliminate the inefficiencies in the construction industry. It’s not easy trying to improve an entire industry, but we’re up for the challenge, one project at a time.


Services

Tender Document Reviews

Our Public Sector clients have found exceptional value in our Tender Document Review service, which takes tender document packages from the design firm and analyses them for interference, cross-discipline coordination, constructibility, and potential change orders. Our work in this category has been a towering success for our clients, with our average review saving the client over 75 times what the service costs them.

OWNER’S PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Vigilant’s core service is acting as the Owner’s Project Manager for construction projects in Newfoundland and Labrador. Our turn-key project management service takes you from idea to ribbon cutting, ensuring your interests are protected at every stage of your construction project.


“Employing the services of Vigilant Management proved to be highly beneficial in controlling the
costs and schedule on a Foodland renovation project in Carbonear, NL. Their knowledge of construction practices, their attention to communication, and their thoroughness in documentation allowed all stakeholders to be informed and engaged throughout the process. Vigilant’s professionalism was both valued and respected.”
— Perry Kossatz - Senior Construction Manager, Sobeys Inc.
