"What stood out was Terlin’s commitment to making sure I was completely satisfied with every step of the process. In particular, I was impressed with their willingness to resolve any issues that I had and be available to discuss things over the phone. As a dentist, working full time and trying to build a new office can be a stressful experience. Having the project manager to oversee the entire project made a big difference!"
"WSP has worked with Terlin Construction for nearly 20 years on a number of projects ranging from retail stores and office fit-ups, to medical and dental clinics. We have always found their workmanship, service, and technical support to be of the highest quality. As well, their management and dedication to their projects is exceptional."
"Terlin helped create a dental clinic my partners and I can be proud of. Terlin respected our budget by offering alternatives to our design plan and they exceeded our expectations by completing our project ahead of schedule. They were accessible throughout the construction period and we were impressed by the high quality of workmanship they provided. Terlin has an exceptional team capable of delivering superior results."
"When they (Terlin Construction) built my office last year, they were given the big task of building a modern dental office in a very tight construction schedule. Not only did they deliver on time, but they worked great with the architect, all of the trades and subcontractors, and myself whenever I had any questions or concerns. Ultimately, their professionalism produced a fantastic office that I was very happy with and that I am proud of."
Where we came from
Established in 1989, at a time when Ottawa was in need of a high-quality, locally-based contracting expert to specialize in retail, commercial, and institutional interiors, Terlin Construction answered the call and has grown our business and expertise to continue to meet and exceed industry expectations and client needs.
Terlin is proud of our many achievements and proven track record as the "supplier of choice" for leading institutions and national retail chains, including Shoppers Drug Mart with whom we have shared a now 20+ year relationship. Responding to opportunities outside of Eastern Ontario, Terlin expanded our project delivery reach and capability, engaging with national retail chains to deliver projects from coast to coast.
In 2015, Terlin moved into our new, state-of- the-art facility in Ottawa which also houses our custom Millwork shop. The move allowed us to expand our corporate office and bring all of our staff together under one roof, improving our service efficiencies that much more.
The Terlin Difference
Terlin Construction focuses on building relationships with our clients that span the entire lifecycle of the build because we understand the importance of earning our clients’ loyalty and trust. We are committed to delivering the highest quality of service with minimal disruptions. We manage risk for our clients by controlling every aspect of the project from pre-construction budgeting, design, and execution to follow-up service after the project is complete. Our internal service staff are kept up to date and are well acquainted with the details and status of each Terlin project so they are well-equipped to assist with client requirements or inquiries after the project is complete.
In addition, we call on industry experts and consultants to advise us on safety practices, develop policies and procedures for internal and on the job safety, and conduct annual training with our staff, all to reduce or eliminate the possibility of accidents and injuries.
Terlin Construction is proud to call Ottawa home and we understand our role within the community and the importance of giving back wherever we can. This desire lies at the heart of our corporate culture and has led to our commitment to actively support a wide range of local charities and service organizations across Ottawa and Eastern Ontario – both as a corporation and by encouraging our team members and their families to get involved in volunteer work and other opportunities.
