Construction Control Inc. has changed its name to CCI Group Inc., reflecting the company’s expanded services, wider scope and national presence. The multi-disciplinary engineering group now has offices from Montreal to Victoria and has expanded its areas of expertise.
“Our company began in 1972 with a focus on quality control and inspection and testing services,” said executive chair Dr. Gina Cody. “Over the past few years we’ve gone through incredible growth, adding services that involve us from the start of a building’s construction, right through to the end of its life, including structural design, hazmat and environmental services.”
Cody says the company has truly changed and the new name will draw attention to that. “We are a larger, better and more diverse company now.”
CCI has grown with acquisitions including a Toronto-based structural group and a legal and forensic division.“The acquisitions we’ve made have all been complimentary services, or services we had done in the past but now offer a higher level of expertise in,” Cody said.
“We have numerousclients who have been with us for more than 30 years,” she said. “As they’ve grown they’ve asked us for new services, or asked us to be present in regions they were moving into. Our relationships with our clients have always been the key and this shows our continued commitment to our clients.”
Cody says these close relationships are developed through the senior management team who make themselves accessible to clients and the company’s openness to encouraging staff to have client contact. “We have a large number of staff who has been here a long time. That continuity has always been important and continues to be through our growth. Clients appreciate knowing they can call and discuss projects with the same person they did the last time.”

CCI Group has been recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies with annual revenues greater than $10 million in a national program sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, Queen’s School of Business and The National Post with revenues of more than $10 million.
Cody says CCI Group is one of the smaller companies to have won and says the recognition points to the success the company has achieved as it has grown. “This is an objective, third party measure, confirming we have done things the right way, and as planned.”
