COMPANY PROFILE

ABOUT NGC

We began NGC with one focus: to build a construction company that can compete with large firms while operating with the flexibility and customer-focus of a small, family-run business. We call it small business values with a big business approach.

We deliver flexible, customer-focused construction solutions, from project concept to building commissioning. We are an Owner’s Representative, General Contractor and Construction Management company with a portfolio of projects across Western Canada valued up to $15 million. Download our brochure here.

Today, 75 percent of our business comes from a core group of legacy clients: a testament to our commitment to building strong, long-term working relationships. 

THE WAY WE WORK

Change the construction industry for the better


Think Safety. Work Safely.

At NGC, we’re committed to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy environment for all the people we work with. That’s why we participate in Contractor Check, an independent third-party health and safety accreditation program for contractors.

OUR TEAM

Our management team brings solid business experience and perspective to our construction business. Their most important job is to bring the best out in our team of experienced and knowledgeable employees and contractors, all of whom operate our projects with the care, commitment and customer-focus our reputation is built on.

Alfredo Hermano

CEO

Alfredo is the man in charge of setting NGC’s overall strategy and keeping the team headed in the right direction. By definition an entrepreneur, Alfredo’s extensive background and hands-on experience working in, managing and owning several construction industry ventures give him a great insight into the building and development process and a desire to change the industry status quo. Alfredo has a degree in Construction Management from BCIT.

Idea of happiness: living each day as if it’s your last.
Most overused words: “Perfect!” “Excellent!” “Spectacular!” and “Done!”
Real-life hero: Richard Branson for his ‘screw it, let’s do it!’ attitude.

Alfredo just became a dad so no longer has any spare time.

Maarten Koorn

COO

Maarten is Alfredo’s right-hand man when it comes to executing NGC’s strategy and is responsible for the marketing and finance functions. Maarten joined the NGC team in 2006 and co-founded NGC’s sister company, MyPlace Building Services Ltd., a facilities maintenance and janitorial services company, in 2009. Born and raised in The Netherlands, Maarten has a degree in Business Administration and Marketing from the Business School of Amsterdam (Hogeschool voor Economische Studies Amsterdam).

Motto: Always look on the bright side of life!
Most overused phrases: “… and then we’ll go from there.” "No doubt about it.”
Real-life hero: Dad and Grandpa.

When he’s not working, you’ll find Maarten on the soccer field or out on the open road on his motorcycle.
