Unlike some real estate companies that develop projects and sell them within a fairly brief time period after they complete construction, Westcorp Properties Inc. of Edmonton, Alberta, builds for the long haul. “We are very cognizant of what the value of a property is going to be upon completion because that dictates our capital structure and what financing is available,” President Philip J. Milroy says. “But we are also very cognizant of value for the long haul.

TL Wallace Construction Inc. is a firm that places a strong emphasis on moral values, Division Vice President L.D. Harris says. He explains that the company believes in such tenets as “honesty, integrity and just doing what we say we’re going to do.” Based in Columbia, Miss., TL Wallace is a full service general contracting and construction management company that serves the U.S. commercial construction industry. Its history goes back to 1958, when CEO Thomas L. “Tommy” Wallace began working at the Dixie Paving Co. as an equipment operator.

In studying minerals, one is likely to learn that goethite produces red, yellow and brown colors; lepidocrocite yields reds and oranges; magnetite cultivates a black color; hematite generates bright and dark reds; and maghemite creates brown and blue-black colors. All of these minerals are iron oxides, and they have been used since prehistoric times to add pigment to various substances. The basic techniques may be thousands of years old, but Solomon Colors Inc. innovates in creating new products and technology to maintain its position as a major U.S.-owned producer of iron oxide pigments.

Based upon the principles of hard work and integrity, Mady Development Corp. has established an enviable track record of investment performance in value-added commercial and residential real estate development. The Markham, Ontario-based company continues to build upon its reputation for quality and client satisfaction by integrating turnkey services into its work scope.

When selling a product, it’s always a good idea to have extensive knowledge about the item. At The Lusco Brick & Stone Co., employees strive to know about brick and stone products and how its customers will want to use them. “I think that’s the foundation of a lot of [our business],” President Bruce Gilkeson says. “We work hard to build good, strong relationships with the manufacturers that we represent.”

It has been four years since Ledcor Construction Ltd. first broke ground on The Bow, a 58-story, 2 million-square-foot architectural masterpiece that will stand as the tallest building in western Canada at 775 feet. Despite its enormity and complex design, no major obstacles have – or will – hinder the Calgary project from reaching a successful completion in spring 2012, Senior Vice President Kerry Gillis maintains.
