The History of CIP Group
Born over 60 years ago amidst the classical beauty of the Italian landscape, Serafino Paglia immigrated to Toronto at the age of 16, with high hopes for a better future for himself and his future family. A strong work ethic coupled with a passion for the construction process helped him become a job-site foreman soon thereafter. His carpentry and layout skills mastered and with a firm understanding of all other trades on site, Serafino enjoyed the daily challenges of concrete construction and gained a wealth of experience with different construction techniques and methods by working all across the country.
"As the consulting engineers for numerous projects involving the C.I.P. Group, we have found that their workmanship was well above average and their work was completed well within the time constraints set by the owners. The projects involved a variety of high-rise apartments and office buildings with formwork values up to the $6 million range. In every case, we have found them to be cooperative and flexible in their dealings with our office and as a result we have no hesitation in recommending them for any structural concrete work."
