If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video must be worth at least a million.

Last month in conjunction with our annual Top Contractors report, we launched On-Site Interviews. This series of short videos will feature one-on-one conversations with Canada’s leading industry experts on challenges, triumphs, projects and trends that directly impact commercial contractors.

The first video in the series is an interview with PCL’s Brad Nelson, president and COO of Canadian Buildings. Since PCL has been Canada’s Top Contractor (based on revenues) for many years, it seemed appropriate to talk to the industry leader and find out what exactly it takes to be profitable year after year. You can view this video by visiting www.on-sitemag.com and clicking on the video link on the homepage.

Coming up in September, we have an interview lined up with BOT Construction to learn more about the Environmental Management System that won the company an Ontario Road Builders’ Association Green Leadership and Sustainability Award earlier this year. And after that we’ll visit the site of the 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games in Toronto and talk to EllisDon about the challenges of such a large-scale project, and how the Athletes’ Village will be transformed after the event to market and affordable housing.

Have an idea for a video? Working on an interesting project you think On-Site readers would be interested to learn more about? Please e-mail your great ideas to editor@on-sitemag.com.
