We’ve Got Bench Strength
In a way, we’re a lot like a sports team. Milestone proudly boasts a roster of the best professionals – engineers, constructors, project managers – around. But there are occasions when even the strength of our resources or the depth of our collective expertise is not enough to meet a challenge. When we identify these occasions, we turn to our bench for support, our partners.
We’ve sparked interests and attracted partners that have the skillset and ability to create opportunities of growth and prosperity for local business and communities. As a general contractor, we strive at engaging the support of qualified resources and specialized subcontractors and suppliers to build the best project team and provide clients creative and innovative environmental contracting services and solutions to successfully get the job done.
Milestone was formed with the objective of being the most innovative and cooperative contractor in the industry, and our success relies on our ability to pull together the most qualified project team to successfully manage our Clients environmental liabilities in the most cost effective and practical manner possible.
If your company wants to join the Milestone contracting team, get in touch with us. We’re always on the lookout for great talent.
Milestone Environmental Inc. and Decontie Construction Inc. formed Decontie Milestone Inc. in 2016. This Joint Venture is a leading Indigenous environmental contracting company majority owned by Decontie Construction Inc., the first Algonquin-Anishinabe-owned general contractor to be licenced by the Régis du bâtiment du Québec (RBC), and the first Indigenous Canadian Brownsfielder Award recipient.
Decontie Milestone Inc. Our shared success started with the Corbeau Hydroelectric Station Demolition and Remediation, a $4.5M demolition/decommissioning project for Hydro Québec on the Anishnabe territory of Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg. It was a project that produced significant training and employment opportunities to recruit and retain local Algonquin workers directly from the Kitigan Zibi community and set the stage for subsequent projects including the Zibi Soil Remediation and Construction Project and the Pathway to Strengthening the Algonquin Anishinabe Workforce (PSAAW). PSAAW is a unique multi-year program that we are especially proud of as partners and represents the evolution of our partnership as we work to build bridges between industry and Indigenous communities, and to build long-term capacity.
