Our Trades People & Contacts
Podium uses the approach of analysis and consultation with staff, board members and residents, to add or remove tradespeople from our contractor portfolio. Where applicable, we use tendered pricing, or request multiple quotes for major expenditures. In all cases, we endeavor to hire tradespeople that will provide the best workmanship and service, at the best value, for our clients.
We search for contractors who share our vision of bringing added value to your condominium. Our contractors have built and maintained condominiums; they are professionals who do not leave loose or messy ends. Like Podium they strive to provide value to the end user – the home owner.
