Canada’s Reliance Construction Group has chosen California-based Procore as its construction management platform.
 
“We chose Procore because it’s robust and proven in the industry, and ensures our employees are armed with the best possible tools to improve their ability to collaborate and deliver,” said Bryan Kaplan, principal at Reliance Construction Group.
 
In recent months, the Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated Reliance’s use of Procore.
 
“We’re working remotely during the pandemic, which makes the move to Procore very natural,” Kaplan said. “Sharing documents on a single platform has ensured our teams are working with the same, up-to-date information, wherever they’re working. It’s given us a broad view of projects at a critical time.”
 
A family-owned enterprise with offices in Ontario and Quebec, Reliance has more than 50 projects underway or soon to begin in the Greater Toronto Area, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City, with more than $1.9bn in backlog.
 
The company’s portfolio includes a diversity of projects from residential high-rise condominiums, hotels and shopping centres, to industrial complexes, technology manufacturing facilities and healthcare. Some of the company’s project highlights include Canada House by Concord Adex in Toronto, the Bell Campus by Bell Canada on Nun’s Island and Aura by Canderel in Toronto.
 
Reliance has experienced a hundred-fold increase in its construction volume over the past three decades. As the company looked for ways to continue to innovate, it chose Procore as its construction management platform for its ability to consolidate points and create efficiencies for employees on a single platform. Procore’s extensibility, such as its integrations with accounting tools used by Reliance including Maestro and Textura, also made it appealing. 
 
“Reliance is one of North America’s largest privately owned construction companies, and we’re honoured to support their growth,” said Jas Saraw, vice president at Procore. “Their success is a measure of our success. The current Covid-19 situation is challenging the industry and accelerating the way construction companies work today. Procore helps enable organisations such as Reliance to continue work seamlessly, providing one place for project teams to collaborate with an integrated set of construction applications that are mobile-ready for the field. We look forward to helping Reliance build Canada.”
 
Reliance plans to continue to adapt and streamline its processes with Procore to ensure employees have the tools they need to work smartly and collaboratively, while ensuring the success of its projects.
 
Procore provides construction management software. Over a million projects and more than $1tn in construction volume have run on Procore’s platform. Headquartered in Carpinteria, California, Procore has offices in Canada and around the globe.
