Building on a Foundation of Strong Values: The CIC Construction Group Way
As we celebrate our 40th anniversary at CIC Construction Group, we find ourselves reflecting on the journey that brought us here. For four decades, we have continually evolved. Yet, throughout all the shifts and changes in the industry and in our business, one thing has remained constant: our values.
A Clear Sense of Direction
From the beginning, we’ve had a clear vision of the type of company we wanted to build and of the reputation we wished to have in this industry.
Today, we are known for our excellence, integrity, efficiency and reliability. At CIC, we hold ourselves to the highest standards of excellence, regardless of the circumstances. We conduct all business with honesty and an uncompromising adherence to strong moral and ethical principles. We strive to deliver projects on budget and on time and meet our clients’ expectations.
Excellence in Preconstruction and Construction Management
At CIC Construction Group, preconstruction and construction management are more than just phases of a project; they are the cornerstones of our success. Our dedication to excellence in preconstruction ensures that every project begins on a solid foundation, with meticulous planning and cost-effective strategies. Our construction management expertise guarantees that these plans are executed flawlessly, on time, and within budget. With 40 years of experience in the industry, we’ve fine-tuned the art of precise preconstruction and construction management, making us a trusted partner for clients seeking exceptional results.
Our Core Values
Our success stems from a corporate culture rooted in five core values. These values are more than trendy words or wishful thinking. They’re the principles that we live by, evident in everything we do–from the quality of our work to how we treat each other and our clients. As long as we’re living up to our core values, we know we’re on the right path.
1. Fostering Collaboration
We understand that our greatest achievements aren’t born from solitary efforts but are the result of collective minds working together towards a common goal. The members of our team are encouraged to share ideas, learn from each other and work together to find the best solutions. To that end, we actively cultivate an environment that encourages open communication, mutual respect and shared responsibility.
Our commitment to fostering collaboration extends beyond our internal teams to include our interactions with partners, clients and stakeholders. We believe that by promoting active participation and collaboration, we can generate more innovative ideas, make more balanced decisions and achieve superior outcomes.
2. Promoting Innovation
As an industry leader, we understand the importance of innovation. In a rapidly evolving world, the ability to innovate is not just an advantage but a necessity. Whether it’s leveraging the latest technology, exploring sustainable construction methods or developing efficient project management practices, innovation has been instrumental in our growth and success.
For us, innovation means creating and reinforcing a culture of curiosity and creativity, inviting our people to question the status quo, explore new ideas and seek out better solutions for our clients. At CIC, new ideas are encouraged, valued and recognized.
By empowering our employees and partners to think creatively, we drive progress, improve efficiency and stay ahead in this competitive industry.
3. Investing in Our People
Our people are our most valuable asset. We continually invest in attracting, developing and retaining the best talent in the industry. We’re dedicated to supporting their growth, both personally and professionally. This commitment is reflected in our robust training programs, opportunities for career advancement, competitive compensation packages, a supportive and inclusive work environment, and our focus on maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
By investing in our people, we not only enhance their satisfaction and well-being, but we also fuel creativity, productivity and innovation across our organization.
4. Embracing Diversity and Inclusion
We firmly believe that each individual brings a unique blend of skills, experiences and perspectives to the table that enrich our collective knowledge and capabilities. Our strength lies in our differences and our willingness to use them creatively to provide the best solutions for our clients.
Our commitment to diversity and inclusion compels us to champion a culture where every voice is heard, respected and valued. By nurturing a culture of diversity and inclusion, embracing our differences and encouraging diverse thoughts, we drive innovation, enhance collaboration and build a vibrant, inclusive community that drives our business forward.
5. Commitment to Sustainability
We firmly believe that we have a role to play in protecting our environment and ensuring a healthier and safer future for generations to come. To us, sustainability isn’t just about compliance with environmental regulations; it’s about proactively seeking opportunities to reduce our footprint, conserve resources and promote responsible practices.
Our commitment to sustainability permeates all aspects of our operations, from the materials we use and the processes we follow, to the partners we work with. We continually invest in innovative, environmentally friendly solutions and are always seeking to improve our performance in this critical area. In addition, we’re dedicated to helping our clients achieve their sustainability goals, working hand in hand with them to design and build projects that are not just efficient and resilient, but also environmentally friendly.
Sustainability is a promise that guides our decisions and actions, shaping not only the work we do today but the legacy we leave for tomorrow.
6. Looking to the Future
Our 40-year journey is a testament to our core values. They have served as a compass, guiding our decisions and shaping the way we operate. They sustain the solid foundation that has allowed us to weather storms, adapt to change, grow and achieve lasting success.
As we look to the future, we remain dedicated to these values and to evolving our corporate culture in ways that empower our people, enable us to continue to deliver exceptional service to our clients, provide a healthy and exciting workplace and contribute to a sustainable future.
