Catalyst is my go-to partner with reason. Not only are they consistent in their approach from project to project for Molson Coors, they are top of their game in Project, Construction & Move Management. I always know my projects are in good hands with Catalyst.

Thank you so much for all your hard work on our space. We came in on time and (significantly) under budget. We couldn’t have done it without you. I can’t even express to you how ecstatic people are with the new office. You took care of all the details and got us in here on time even when one of the tenants didn’t vacate on time. Because of you, I could sleep at night!

Our project in Calgary was a huge success thanks to Catalyst….not only are they responsive, hard working, knowledgeable and talented – they are true professionals who were with me every step of the way. Their consistency and work ethic is the best out there.

Catalyst did a great job for us on our corporate HQ project……and covered their fee at least three times over in resolving issues that they were able to catch before they became problems. They are detail oriented, which kept us on time and on budget. If I had it to do over again, or could give advice to anyone else -- I wouldn’t even interview…....they’d be crazy not to pick Catalyst.

Catalyst provided outstanding planning, management and oversight of United Launch Alliance’s construction of its new 450,000 square foot campus and relocation of 2,100 ULA personnel. The Catalyst team has proactively met every challenge on our project with focus, commitment and ULA’s best interest in mind. ULA’s partnership with Catalyst has been key to the success of the project.

Catalyst was awesome and I could not have picked a better partner. We had a lot of great firms that we could have selected to be our project management team for our new building but I am happy to say we made the right choice. Catalyst added a personal touch to everything they did and went above and beyond to ensure a successful project. Their ability to lead a team and provide the right resources at the right time – as well as their robust knowledge of procurement, construction methodology, and technology – all make them the perfect partner. You can’t go wrong with picking Catalyst to be your project manager, I can't imagine a more capable team.

There’s a reason Catalyst has worked on numerous projects for me as an outsourced consultant – the Catalyst team is extremely focused, efficient and effective. The minutia of details that Catalyst tracked on any given day on my projects would be overwhelming for some Project Management teams – but not this group. They understand Change Management, sustainability/LEED, furniture specifications, construction, moves, value engineering, contracts, RFP’s and all of the parts and pieces that make a complex project a reality. Their ability to come in and become a part of our culture was wonderful. Kudos to them.

Bar none – Catalyst is the best Project Management team out there. Not only did they work with us on our corporate HQ project – I sought them out, again, for our expansion project. I’ve worked with many project teams in my career and Catalyst handled my project(s) with integrity, care and precision – they’re the best.

Catalyst was resourceful, focused and continually worked at paving the way for a successful project. They were proactive and tried to anticipate challenges and course correct if needed. The internal moves were executed with efficiency and great care, all the while being very conscious of our company culture.

I can clearly say that the Catalyst team was by far the most valuable members of our construction team. We all have day jobs, but project management *IS* their day job. Their attention to detail as needed, and big picture thinking when required, resulted in an on-time and on budget project driven by several creative, cost-effective and efficient solutions to virtually every challenge encountered along the way. Catalyst should be every CFO’s first call when undertaking a move.
