Bird Construction Inc.(BDT) provides a comprehensive range of construction services in Canada for new construction for industrial, commercial, and institutional markets; to industrial maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) services, heavy civil construction and contract surface mining; as well as vertical infrastructure including, electrical, mechanical, and specialty trades. Bird operates from coast-to-coast and services all of Canada's major geographic markets.
In all sectors, Bird contracts with its clients using a combination of fixed price, unit price, design-build, alternative finance projects, public, private, partnerships (PPP), cost reimbursable (such as cost plus), construction management, and integrated project delivery methods.
While Bird is capable of self-performing larger projects, particularly in the industrial market and MRO space, for many projects, the overall construction risk rests with Bird's subcontractors. The scope of work of each subcontractor is generally defined by the same contract documents that form the basis of Bird's agreements with its clients. The terms of the agreements between Bird and its clients are generally replicated in the agreements between Bird and its subcontractors. These "flow-down" provisions substantially mitigate the risk borne by BIRD. Depending on the size of the contract, Brid may require bonds or other forms of contract security, including enrolling the subcontractors in Bird's subcontractor default insurance program, which should mitigate exposure to possible additional costs should a subcontractor not be able to meet its contractual obligations. Bird's primary constraints on growth are the ability to secure new work at reasonable margins and the availability of qualified professional staff who can be assigned to manage the projects.
