SAJO
AT
WORK

SAJO is an integrated project delivery company. We design and build environments. We know from experience what a positive impact great spaces can have on employee motivation and brand equity.

We are approaching our fourth decade in business with services ranging from design to construction, procurement to maintenance.

Each service we offer blends seamlessly into the next and supports interaction among our in-house talent.

We are a “learning organization”, constantly innovating.

A HOLISTIC APPROACH

Our services are available on an individual basis. However, our clients increasingly opt for the benefits of an integrated approach, where all services are performed by one company with a complete grasp of the total project/program requirements.

A CLIENT-CENTRIC
PHILOSOPHY

Every project is different, and so is every client. We understand the special requirements of each project, and we ensure that our suppliers and subcontractors understand them too. And we are attentive to the particular needs of each client. In short, we offer a high degree of client care.

CANADA, USA, EUROPE
AND BEYOND

With offices in Montreal, New York, Chicago
and London, we can serve you throughout North America and Europe.

LITY

Our world is full of variables. Good design manages the variables.

Empty space is a challenge. Great interiors impact employees / sales / motivation positively.

Costs are unstable. A holistic approach is the answer to reduced spending.

Technology changes rapidly. There is no easy answer but there is always a solution.

We strive to make the difficult look easy!
