Justin Dugas

Operations Manager

I am originally from Nova Scotia and graduated from Dalhousie University in 2003. I started my career in human resources and built on my knowledge of what motivates and encourages employees to excel. When I was approached to join Black & McDonald in early 2010, I could instantly tell this was an exceptional and unique company and jumped on the opportunity to grow with the organization. I started as a Project Coordinator in the Facility Management Division of Black & McDonald's Northern Ontario Region, headquartered in Ottawa.

Being new to the field of facility management I was given training, mentoring and exposure to the wide ranging types of facilities and tasks that we were responsible for. In Ottawa these facilities range from institutions such as universities and museums, to military installations, industrial sites and commercial properties. The sheer variety in the scopes of each project that I worked on allowed me to become quickly immersed in all aspects of facility management while working on a certification in the field to further broaden my knowledge. Once equipped with knowledge and experience I was promoted to Operations Manager in 2013 and now manage multi-million dollar contracts in our region.

I have had the opportunity to visit and work with some truly unique facilities such as museums that house one of a kind artifacts, military installations that protect our country and research facilities that are truly world leaders in cutting edge research.

The best part of my job is the variety in my work. Every day presents new challenges, be it finding and managing highly skilled technical resources, managing state of the art facilities that require unmatched service levels, or working on business development and expanding our service offerings to clients. Black & McDonald is truly uniquely positioned. As a multi-trade company that also performs facility management, we are able to use highly trained in-house tradespeople on complex projects which increases communication, coordination and overall timeliness of the delivery of these projects to our clients.

Outside of work I love to travel (I have visited over 20 countries), discover new music, sports such as running (currently training for my second half marathon), softball, skiing and hunting. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends.
