Legico-CHP Fleur De Lys Scholarship (721200102601)

Legico-CHP Fleur de lys scholarship

INTRODUCTION

Legico-CHP emerged from the amalgamation of two separate companies—Legico, founded in early 2000, and CHP, in operation since 1992. Both companies were players in major international and local construction projects.

Legico has developed considerable expertise, mainly in commercial construction projects, in areas such as procurement, logistics, transportation, development of complex contract agreements, planning, contract administration and construction oversight. The company’s client base includes customers involved in infrastructure projects as well as those in various industrial and institutional fields.

CHP specializes in project cost estimating. CHP is also known for its contributions to updates of the detailed Handscomb Yardsticks for Costing guide. Over the past five years, CHP has provided cost estimates of more than $250M per year. CHP is also regularly sought out as an expert witness in construction-related litigation cases.

Bringing these two companies under the Legico-CHP banner positions the company very well as an impartial party, independent of engineering consulting firms and contractors, for construction projects by a variety of clients.
