Brook Construction is a successful company with a reputation for providing quality results. We take pride in our work and it shows. Many of our clients are repeat customers for that reason. The majority of our contract awards involve pre-construction work, design-build, or negotiated contracts. Public tender projects are also a very important part of our business. Brook Construction maintains a large supplier/sub-contractor database and has built strong relationships.
Our success could not have been possible without the loyalty and dedication of our employees. Many employees have been with the company since inception and there have been 21 employees who have received awards for 15 Years of Service, a milestone we consider hard to achieve in the ever-changing and mobile work force in Newfoundland and Labrador.
