MARANT Construction Limited has been servicing our clients with branch operations in the region for a decade.  However, with the recent award of the Head Office renovation project for Manulife Financial (315,000 sf), and the steady growth of Ontario’s tech industry centred in the region, it was time to establish an office to better service the expanding needs of the “Tech Hub.”  With over 15M sf of net new space under, or soon to be under construction in the Kitchener-Waterloo corridor (KW), vacancy rates steadily declining due to increased tech and other start-ups, and Metrolinx’ renewed commitment to two-way, all day Go Train service between Toronto and KW, the decision was made to establish an office in the region.

“I am very pleased to have MARANT now firmly established in the construction community in the Tech Hub region so we can continue to provide the same high-quality, professional construction service that we have been delivering for our clients for the past 20 years,” according to Gino Vettoretto, President MARANT Construction Limited, who is also pleased to announce Justin Lunardo as the new Director of Regional Operations, Western Ontario.

According to a July 16, 2019 article in the Toronto Star, “Toronto is now rated number three in North America for tech talent, according to the CBRE Group Inc.’s annual report.” “Fuelled by government funded start-up accelerators, welcoming immigration policies and a healthy venture capital market.”   The ranking for Toronto for tech talent puts the city behind only San Francisco (#1) and Seattle (#2).  The article goes on to say “While tight job markets and rising costs have dampened hiring momentum in some leading tech hubs, they have also spurred “spillover” demand for expansion and hiring in smaller cities across North America, including Waterloo and Hamilton, according to the 2019 ranking.”  For the complete article go to: https://www.thestar.com/business/technology/2019/07/16/toronto-now-ranked-one-of-top-three-tech-cities-in-north-america.html
