At Nomodic, our commitment to leaving things better begins with a dedication to our team, clients, partners, and the communities we live and work in.
Health & Safety
SAFETY above all else.
We ensure that every single person leaves a worksite better than they arrived.
Nomodic is proud to hold an Alberta Certificate of Recognition (COR) that recognizes our health and safety management systems that meet provincial standards. These certificates are issued by Alberta Job Skills, Training and Labour and are co-signed by the Certifying Partner in partnership with the Alberta government.
Our team takes full accountability for our surroundings, actions, and well-being by identifying and eliminating all potential risks and hazards. We exemplify our safety culture by participating in and contributing to the improvement of Nomodic’s Health & Safety program and related activities and initiatives.
Nomodic is continuing to monitor closely the developments surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. We ensure cleanliness in all areas of our operations to reduce health risks for our team, partners, and clients. We are following the guidance of public health authorities and taking preventative measures to help protect our team and ensure the continuity of both our business and the operations of our clients and partners.
Across the globe, developers are learning the eco-advantages that are inherent to modular and prefabricated construction. Offsite construction significantly reduces the impact on communities and the environment and generates less construction waste and onsite pollution. Combined with the fact that modular construction accelerates project timelines by between 25-50%, these advantages are a giant leap forward on the path to creating a more sustainable future.
Offsite fabrication facilities provide climate-controlled conditions to ensure modules are built with maximum airtightness, which leads to greater overall energy efficiency. Here are just of the few benefits* of the modular process:
reduction in operational costs due to improved thermal performance
less construction waste going to a landfill
reduction in deliveries to worksites
faster project timelines

As greener technologies and materials emerge, Nomodic is strategically positioned as an integrator to deliver the advantages to clients and project partners.
Our success is measured by our ability to leave communities better. Our team is encouraged to give back to the communities we work and live in. Nomodic actively facilitates volunteer and fundraising opportunities for our team to empower the people around us. We accomplish this through relationships with organizations such as Calgary Drop-In Centre and Habitat for Humanity, and causes including Seniors Affordable Housing, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and Multiple Sclerosis, among others.
At Nomodic, we recognize the requirement to meet the desire by Indigenous peoples to achieve and sustain economic development opportunities and independence. We have been fortunate to form strong bonds with a select number of partners and we pride ourselves on the quality of these strategic alliances. Every relationship is formed with mutual benefit foremost in mind, and we have been proud to play a part in contributing a small part to the growth and success of these communities.
It is Nomodic’s goal to seek opportunities to support the economic endeavours of Indigenous communities and contribute to the cultural well-being of Indigenous people. Nomodic, with the guidance provided by its Indigenous community partners, is committed to:
- Implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action 92; and
- Understanding and supporting the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) Calls to Justice.
As a result of our unique business model and experience, Nomodic is able to leverage our business relationships to achieve our commitments, mitigate negative impacts, and deliver positive social enhancements within the communities we operate.
Nomodic has a strong track record of Indigenous employment, training, and subcontracting, as well as utilizing local businesses. In Indigenous communities, we utilize and rely on local Indigenous businesses and workers to provide the majority of site services with the support of our project manager and site supervisors.
Nomodic has several current and past Indigenous clients and business relationships, including Burns Lake Band and West Moberly First Nations along the Coastal GasLink Project, Lower Nicola Indian Band along the Transmountain Expansion Project, Alexander First Nation within their traditional territory for the Duvernay resource base, and relationships with numerous communities throughout Western Canada.
Nomodic will consider and evaluate business relationships that can be sustainable, and are of mutual benefit and interest for our clients.
Subcontracting Opportunities for Indigenous Businesses
Nomodic will consider all qualified and competitive Indigenous businesses to jointly execute a project. Nomodic will use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain goods or services from as many Indigenous businesses identified by our Indigenous partner communities as possible.
Long-Term Indigenous Economic Opportunities
Nomodic is seeking Indigenous community partners on contracted Nomodic projects. Nomodic will consider the utilization of Indigenous businesses for such future opportunities as they arise.
