Starting the new year STRONG!!
As the holiday season comes and goes, we enter a new year – 2023, a year where we aim to achieve bigger and better things.
This past year has been packed with an endless number of achievements, challenges, twist and turns, milestones and memories. From projects completed to breaking ground on the next, Contempora Steel Builders continues to be at the forefront of Pre-Eng Design Build Construction. Looking back we overcame the final waves of Covid, one of the snowiest winters and most wet springs in recorded history, and supply chain delays that seem to be never ending. And yet, we were still able to deliver on our promise of On Time and On Budget construction while also celebrating together at our Family BBQ and Employee Christmas Party.
So here’s to a New Year! Lets see what 2023 has in store for all of us. With plans for training and educational opportunities, new projects on the horizon and more Contempora team fun, this year is dedicated to growth, goals and fun times!

Braving the Weather!
Supply chain disruptions are not the only delays we’ve had to overcome. The weather we have experienced over the past several months has certainly taken its toll. The summer was extremely hot, the snowfall was record breaking, and now we’re faced with severe overland flooding. With access being washed out, equipment sinking into the mud, and rain preventing us from erecting steel our Project Managers and Site Crews have certainly faced their fair share of hurdles. nevertheless, we’ve made a commitment to all our clients, to deliver Solid Builds On Time and On Budget, and we keep our word!

Helping Harvest Manitoba
After partnering with Harvest Manitoba in December and raising over $10,000 during the holiday season, a long lasting relationship blossomed. As we were on the verge of another lockdown, we wanted to do something that would support a few local businesses, give Winnipegger’s something to do and still give back to the community.
On May 8th we were fortunate enough to be the corporate sponsors to “Opa! An evening in Greece” a joint event between Johnny’s Maples Pizza, De Luca Fine Wines and Contempora Steel Builders. Attendees received a meal package containing several Greek staples such as chicken gyros, spanakopita, and lemon potatoes along with two (or more) bottles of perfectly paired wine. Everyone was then asked to join George and Johnny, virtually, to cook along and share in an evening of laughter. $20 from every package was donated to Harvest Manitoba.
With the support of those in attendance and our strategic corporate partners we were able to raise over $6,000! Thank you to all for your incredible support.

Standing Steel in the South
Our crews are hard at work erecting two new steel structures for Deveraux Developments in the South Landing Business Park. The project initially kicked into gear several months ago and as we transition from an unruly winter into a warmer than usual spring, so too has our crew transitioned from completing the first building to now standing steel for the second.
The two new structures, spanning a combined 28,000 square feet, will house several new tenants along McGillivray. The cold weather, high winds and rain won’t slow down our progress. Visit us on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn to follow along as we wrap up this solid build, on time and on budget!

Wrapping up a Gemstone
Throughout the last year we worked on several projects for Jade Transport Ltd. Initially one crew was responsible for strategically disassembling and labeling every component of an existing pre-engineered steel building in East Saint Paul. After shipping the building to Jade’s new facility on Kapelus, our crew was back to re-erect the structure, add an addition, install new exterior cladding and finish the interior to house the companies award-winning trucks. In the mean time, another crew was hard at work renovating Jade’s existing office on Dugald. This project encompassed the conversion of an old maintenance bay to feature a board room and comfortably house the logistics department.

Partnering With Harvest Manitoba!
What started off as a simple fundraiser, with a modest goal, ended up receiving a whirlwind of support. In an effort to spread some holiday cheer our staff set off to fundraise for Harvest Manitoba. Our initial goal was set at $2,500 with an agreement of an additional $5,000 donation from Contempora Steel Builders once the goal was met. After reaching our goal in just over a week, we decided to extend the deadline and increase our goal.
Shortly after announcing our new goal and reaching out to our community we once again reached our target! Thank you to everyone who donated to our fundraiser! With your help we were able to raise over $10,000 for this incredible local organization.

Plugging Away; Jade Transport Ltd.
Our team recently began the second phase of construction at Jade Transport Ltd. The project initially began several months ago with the strategic disassembly of an existing pre-engineered building owned by Jade. The building was taken apart piece by piece, labelled, organized, and stored to await re-erection on one of Jade’s other properties.
Aside from the re-erection of the building, we have also been tasked with looking after the land development, erecting an addition, and finishing the interior. Visit Facebook or Instagram for updates as our team achieves project milestones and works towards completing Jade’s project on time and on budget.
