JDG is Strong as Steel – FEATURED in Business in Focus

Vancouver’s steel building experts, JDG Construction, was honoured with a feature in Business in Focus Magazine. The article, titled “Strong as Steel”, appeared in the November 2012 issue of the nationally popular magazine and praises the work of JDG construction alongside impressive photographs of their beautifully constructed buildings.

Dave Côté, the article’s author, begins by highlighting JDG’s long history in the business of construction, recounting how the company began humbly in 1985 with just two staff-members, but has now grown to offer widespread services, from their head office in North Vancouver to clients all over the mainland and Vancouver Island.

This long history is a competitive advantage for the company, says JDG partner Edward Langford. Langford is quoted in the article as saying, “One of our strong suits is that throughout our history we are still dealing with the same trade workers who have been with us since our incorporation.” Langford points out that this close relationship with suppliers and tradespeople is the key to “giving the client the best product possible.”

Much of “Strong as Steel” focusses on JDG’s superior customer service reputation. Côté praises the company’s personable attitude, saying, “JDG Construction has a very hands-on approach when working with clients, and makes it a point to be accessible and available to answer any questions and address any concerns.”

Despite the fact that many of JDG’s projects have become million-dollar developments, Langford is quoted as saying, “Many of our best projects have started during a chat over coffee and a sketch on a napkin.”

Côté also points out JDG’s reputation for taking on challenging projects, getting involved as early as possible and seeing the project through to completion, all the while working closely with clients to save money and add value, always with the client’s needs in view.

“Strong as Steel” concludes with a look toward the future for the Vancouver steel building veterans. Côté mentions that JDG has plans to expand into the heavy industrial and mining sectors and are sure to see continued growth for the future.
