Renovator of the Year: Men At Work

GREATER TORONTO, March 16, 2012 - Trustworthy was the word that jumped out at the judges and it was used many times during client interviews to describe Men At Work General Contractors Ltd., the company named Renovator of the Year by the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD). Owner of the home addition and renovation company, Paul Gallop, received the coveted award on opening day of the National Home Show at the Direct Energy Centre at Exhibition Place.

"Paul Gallop and his team have gone above and beyond to professionalize the contractor-homeowner relationship, not only by participating as a BILD member and in the Renomark program for 17 years, but by implementing an online project management system to improve communication and by taking extra care in educating and listening to clients along the way,"said BILD Acting President Joe Vaccaro.

Men At Work has been helping homeowners undertake renovation and addition projects since 1989 and over the last two years the company has focused energy and investment in upgrading the methods and tools used to reach and serve their customers. For example, all client decisions and actions are listed on an interactive website with log-in security so that information about the contract, project progress and more can be updated and viewed any time of day.

A number of clients noted the access to information, excellent communication and professional site crew as reasons to trust Men At Work to get the job done right.

The Renovator of the Year award is bestowed to a renovator who sets the standard for the rest of the sector in their leadership and commitment to customer service, as well as contributing to the overall image of the renovation industry.
