Construction / Project Management

Brouwer Construction (1981) Ltd. has also worked as a Construction Manager or Project Manager on wide range of project types and sizes.

The Construction Management approach allows considerable more flexibility in terms of project deliverables, volunteer involvement, community financial and personal investment and the Construction Budget.
