Construction & Development

Smart. Sustainable. Constructive.

Solutions to help you reach new heights 

As developers keep a close eye on changing demographics and customer demands, construction companies work the balancing act of maintaining margins, embracing green building practices, and adopting new technologies. Added to these challenges is the shortage of skilled labour, requiring both sectors to look beyond their regional workforce and toward overseas employees.

BDO’s team of advisors has deep experience helping construction and development companies raise capital, assess risk, and navigate government incentive opportunities. With a pulse on global trends, we assist our clients in disrupting the industry to build Canada’s future using smart technology and sustainable building practices.
