ECS Engineering & Construction was founded in 1992, by Jason Chidiac, a Professional Engineer and graduate of Ohio State University and the University of Akron with his Masters of Science in Civil Engineering.

At ECS our primary belief is to "do one thing and do it well"; because of this, we have become the predominant general contractor in the Ontario petroleum industry. We have successfully won every major tender and alliance contract we have pursued, including our construction or maintenance alliances with Petro-Canada, Suncor (Sunoco) and Imperial Oil (ESSO). One of our greatest achievements to date is to have been selected as Petro-Canada's and Sunoco's sole General Contractor for Ontario. We had very stiff competition, however, our proven track record, ability to understand our customer's goals and objectives and integrate them into our proposed organization and vision, along with our in house technical expertise in the industry, allowed us to emerge as victors.

We are actively involved in projects ranging in size from small maintenance repairs to demolition and soil remediation up to full site construction and associated roadway modifications and city service connections. Our main specialty is retail service station construction including tank & piping installations, convenience stores and fast-food restaurants, car washes and civil construction works. We are also involved in wholesale construction projects such as bulk plants, truck stops, and distribution terminals.

ECS Engineering & Construction Limited has a staff of approximately 50 people including three project managers, nine site supervisors and various skilled construction trades people. Our office staff consists of three full time engineers, an architectural technologist, and an accountant. All employees of ECS are educated within the petroleum and construction field with extensive petroleum engineering and construction related backgrounds.

In the field, our core business is general contracting thus we have carpenters, concrete finishers, heavy equipment operators, etc on staff, however, we also do 95% of our own petroleum piping and equipment installations using our own staff.

For both ECS and our customers, safety is a major concern. In an effort to ensure we meet and exceed the safety requirements of our local governing bodies we have a professional safety consultant who carries out unscheduled safety audits on our projects on a monthly basis. This ensures our workers and sub-contractors are conforming to our Corporate Health and Safety Policies, as well as meeting and exceeding the local labour laws. Our management team is committed to dealing with each safety recommendation from our safety consultant and field staff as it applies and providing any necessary training and equipment to our staff to ensure we reach our 0 hour loss-time goals.

ECS Engineering and Construction Ltd. is also a member of the Ontario Petroleum Contractors Association and The Ontario General Contractors Association. Through the Ontario General Contractors Association we are a member of a pilot program with The Workplace Safety & Insurance Board (WSIB - formerly Workmans Compensation) to develop a safety group among its members. The primary goal of the group is to reduce accidents in the workplace through sharing of information and expertise.

As we continue into the future, ECS Engineering & Construction Limited is committed to becoming a leader in petroleum engineering, design and construction. We hope to achieve this through safety, service, innovation, and technology.
