Lanca Contracting Limited was the General Contractor for the recently completed four-bay, Station 11 Fire Hall in South Haldimand. During harshest winters on record, Lanca was able to keep production on pace with the original schedule. Site meetings were held regularly and were always well organized. Despite the difficulties with the weather & bedrock that Lanca encountered, the project still finished more then 300,000 below the next nearest bidder, saving tax-payers a size-able amount of public money. The construction process was smooth & communication was maintained every step of the way. We felt comfortable that we had the right contractor for the job & would be more then pleased to work with Lanca on another project.

From day one, we always assumed that any of the bidders could build a physical structure, but what differentiated Lanca was your understanding of the requirements and the creativity in the design elements.

Lanca Contracting completed a multi-million dollar industrial/commercial condominium project for my companies. Initially Lanca was contracted for building phase I, but once that contract was completed, I was both satisfied and enthusiastic enough to immediately award them phase II building of this development. Being in the construction industry myself, you can imagine the scrutiny and pressure to perform that Lanca had faced in bringing this project from concept design to finished product. Lanca has been a long-standing and significant contributor to the Brantford business community and continues to operate in the family tradition as a reputable, accomplished and highly adaptive designer/builder of projects various sizes and complexity.

Lanca Contracting has done few projects for us. The first project was Cenpro Pharmacy 25 years ago which was a partial expansion of Central Professional Building of Brant Ave. It was an excellent job and finished on time. The second project was in 2003 regarding the expansion of my plaza at 627 Park Road & a vet clinic which finished on time. The next project was in 2004 at 160-162 Colborne St which is University Pharmacy and D&R Residence. To my surprise 80% of the project was done in just 12 weeks with foundation laid July 13th and students were in residence September 1st. A remarkable and excellent job was done with project finishing on time and on budget. A lot of positive comments were made from the Mayor and City Councillors. Additional projects were 2005 a 15,000 sq.ft. plaza on 625 Park Road & an industrial 40,000 sq.ft. industrial building in 2006. We are very pleased with Lanca Contracting Limited workmanship, honesty, and integrity and highly recommend them.
