Municipal Construction Procurement Toolkit

Vigilant Management has developed an innovative approach to construction project delivery that establishes an Owner’s Project Manager (OPM) to represent the Owner in all matters. We bring project stakeholders together to achieve a common goal. We understand what the project means to your municipality, learning why it is important and how it moves you forward. We leverage that understanding throughout the project, ensuring that the needs of the Owner are at the forefront of every project discussion. Using OPMs has been proven to bring municipal construction projects in on budget and on time. This means fewer change orders, less schedule delays, and a smoother project from start to finish.

Vigilant Management is proudly Newfoundland owned and operated. We’re a local company, serving local interests. We work only for you, on your side of the table.

Communities in Newfoundland and Labrador, as well as those across Atlantic Canada, are vulnerable to climate change and need to prepare for its impacts.

Climate Change Workbook low res

Communities across the country are becoming increasingly concerned about how global climate change affects them at the local level. In Atlantic Canada, regional partnerships of the federal and provincial governments, professional associations and local governments are conducting research and developing tools to assist communities in planning for and adapting to changes caused by global climate change.

In Newfoundland and Labrador, as part of a Regional Adaptation Collaborative (through Atlantic Climate Adaptation Solution Association), the Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Environment and Conservation has partnered with Municipalities Newfoundland and Labrador, the Professional Municipal Administrators Association and Memorial University to develop a document to help municipalities assess their vulnerability to climate change. The 7 Steps to Assess Climate Change Vulnerability in Your Community is extensive and covers a range of topics.
