General contractors: Aggreko helps you stay on schedule and on budget


When you’re working on a large construction project for a key customer, you need a reliable provider of general contractor services that you can trust to support you every step of the way.

As we know, bigger projects are more logistically difficult, and even small delays to your schedule can have a disproportionate impact on cost. If you've already agreed to a budget, overruns can be a real problem – for both you and your client.

That’s where the right construction partner comes in: helping you to stay on schedule and within budget, no matter what challenges the site may bring.

Building relationships

At Aggreko, we know that construction isn’t just about physical buildings, but also the building of relationships.

Trust is important in any relationship but is particularly crucial in the relationship between a company and the general contractor they appoint for their construction project. A large project can easily make or break a business, so you need a general contractor you have full faith in.

Naturally, trust develops over time with each successful project. But one misstep is all it takes to lose it forever.

This is doubly true with new customers, with whom you often haven’t had the time to build trust yet. You need to show them – right out of the gate – that the construction partner they’re working with has the right skills and experience to get the job done.

Our team has the experience and expertise to keep your project on track, meet deadlines, and stay within budget. And we work closely with you to develop a comprehensive project plan that takes all the necessary factors into account – from site conditions, to labor requirements, to client needs.

How Aggreko’s general contractor services can help

Aggreko are experts in providing general contractor services for a wide variety of use cases. In particular, our expertise lies in the following areas:

Power and distribution for cranes, elevators, job trailers, and tools

We can provide the power and distribution you need to keep your construction project running smoothly. This includes power and distribution for cranes, elevators, job trailers, and tools – some of the heaviest users of power on a construction site. Whatever the size or scope of your project, our professional engineers will work with you to design a power and distribution solution that meets your specific needs.

Concrete cooling and curing, ground thaw, and full site prep

We can offer a range of services to help you prepare your site and lay the foundations for your project. This includes concrete cooling and curing, ground thaw, and full site prep – like how we helped this massive Manitoba car dealership pour concrete in subzero conditions.

Our team manages, installs, and maintains all the equipment needed to get the job done, ensuring that your construction project gets off to a smooth start.

Full-site or spot cooling and heating

By regulating the temperature on site, we can help you avoid costly delays due to extreme weather. Our spot cooling and heating services are available for both small and large construction projects – and can be scaled up or down to suit your needs. We offer high-quality air chillers, powerful heaters, and compressors to keep your construction project on track, whatever the conditions.

Drying and dehumidification

Water damage is a common problem on construction sites. Our drying and dehumidification services can help you avoid costly delays and repairs, as well as protect your workers and equipment from the damage that high humidity can cause. Instead of dealing with the hassle and stress of water damage, let Aggreko’s team take care of it for you.

Emergency and contingency planning

No construction project is complete without a contingency plan. Our emergency and contingency planning services will help you be prepared for any eventuality, and keep your project on schedule. Whether it's a power outage, extreme weather, or something else entirely, we'll make sure you're ready.

A construction partner at the cutting edge

Aggreko uses the latest technology to deliver reliable, sustainable power where you need it most. Being at the forefront of general contracting services lets us help you stay ahead of your competition.

For example, in 2021, Turner Construction Company and Aggreko partnered to build a novel tower crane pilot solution in an effort to lower total operating cost. The solution replaces a conventional Tier-2 500kW generator with a smaller 200kW Tier-4i genset and a 240kW/120kWh BESS. By eliminating the need to oversize the genset, the solution saves our clients money, improves reliability, and decreases environmental impact.

Again, this underscores the importance of relationship building. By fostering trust with Turner Construction Company and IQHQ, Aggreko was able to work with these stakeholders on a pilot program to push the boundaries of what’s possible.

On schedule and on budget

We understand the unique challenges of working on a construction site. Our general contracting services team is dedicated to providing the power, cooling, and heating solutions you need to get the job done – on time and on budget.

Our project management teams are on site every day, overseeing operations and ensuring that your job is running smoothly. We have the resources to handle any situation that may arise, from last-minute changes to unexpected weather conditions.

Most importantly, we understand the importance of communication. We keep you constantly updated on site progress, so you always know what's happening and can make informed decisions about where to go next.

Working with Aggreko as your general contractor services partner gives you peace of mind that your project will be a success – on time, on budget, and with minimal disruption to your operations.

With decades of experience in supporting construction companies, we're here to elevate your project and improve your bottom line. Partner with Aggreko and see your customer confidence grow today.
