Leading Edge Homes, Johnstons River
This custom home construction company, which has been in business for a year, offers conventional construction and an alternative framing method where the roof is built directly on the foundation, and then taken off to add prefabricated wall panels.
“The panels are built at Atlas Structural Systems in Richibucto, NB, and trucked to the build site, where they are assembled and installed,” says Scott Gosson.
Six employees work full-time, year-round, 45 to 50 hours a week. A crew does the framing and assembles the panels. A Lead Foreman and a second in command work with the Labourers. There is also a crew that installs trim, flooring, doors, and does other interior work.
“We have enough Labourers, but we are looking for an experienced Foreman who could run another crew,” says Mark Jennings. “This year, we took on three Holland College students as Apprentices, but we need experienced Red Seal people for the students to learn from.”
