Background

Diversification and attentive service

 

When Michel Lemaire founded LC Entrepreneurs Généraux (2000) Ltée in 1971, the company’s principal activity was building service stations for a number of different oil companies, a very active field at the time in Quebec. Soon after, Mr. Lemaire teamed up with Denis Lachapelle, an ideal partner, to help grow the business. In the late 1980s, the company diversified into building convenience stores and supermarkets. Continuity was ensured with the arrival of Guy Brodeur (1988) and Félix Lachapelle (2000), who would become shareholders.

In the following years, the management team burnished the company’s reputation through gradual diversification and personalized service. In 2015, as a result of this expansion, the company acquired new offices in Boisbriand’s industrial district, on Montreal’s North Shore. In 2019, Félix Lachapelle became President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company and took over the reins with the assistance of his partners Jacques Wazen, Construction Director, and Anthony Lamarre, Estimation and Purchasing Director.

Today, the management of LC Entrepreneurs Généraux (2000) Ltée , commonly referred to as “LC2000,” is passing on its expertise to a third generation; these future leaders will carry forward the company’s mission in the same spirit and continue to offer the same superior quality services.

Safety policy

Our priority is safety

 

Our goal is to provide superior quality service. In order to do this, all of the work we do is performed in accordance with the LC2000 Safety Guide. The Safety Guide includes information about potential hazards on building sites, sets out the steps required to correct dangerous behaviours and situations, and serves as a resource for employees on safety procedures.

 

This Safety Guide describes:

  • Roles and responsibilities for accident prevention;
  • Prevention;
  • Emergency measures;
  • Requirements for reporting incidents and accidents in the workplace;
  • Safety practices;
  • Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System.

 

Integrating an accident prevention program into the company’s general policy is a priority because it contributes to eliminating not only accidents but the causes of accidents. All company employees and subcontractors must read and sign our safety program, which is in force daily on all our construction sites.

Community engagement

 

Pass it forward

 

LC2000 understands the importance of giving back to our community. This is why we encourage our  employees, clients and subcontractors to do the same by organizing various fundraising campaigns. LC2000 participates in a variety of events throughout the year in support of causes of importance to our team. These organizations and foundations include the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Foundation, the Université de Montréal Osteoarthritis Research Unit, the Fondation Charles-Bruneau Cancer Centre, the Corner Store Foundation, the Fondation Tel-Jeunes, the President’s Choice Children’s Charity, Sobey’s Classique Bâtir Ensemble, the Théâtre Denise-Pelletier, the Tim Hortons Children’s Foundation, the Canadiens’ Children Foundation and the Canadian Cancer Society.

Christmas campaign
