Case Study: Govan Brown is Years Ahead of the Competition with CMiC


Govan Brown & Associates Limited is a Canadian full-service General Contractor and Construction Manager. The firm began their journey in 1994 as a two-person operation and grew to revenue of $40 million by 2005. 

“CMiC is a differentiator for us. It has put us three to four years ahead of the competition.” – John Brown, Sr Partner and Co-Founder of Govan Brown & Associates Limited. 

The Challenge 

  • Govan Brown's then-current software solution (Jonas) was growing out of date and falling short on functionality. 

How CMiC Helped 

  • Better managing projects on job sites, at the office and in partnership with their vendors using CMiC’s web-based collaborative platform.

  • Fully integrate project management with financials—rather than relying on bridges and workarounds—and develop standardized business processes that apply to daily operations and shine a light on inefficiencies. 

  • Developed a tax filing program that streamlines tax filing and financial reporting and meets the Canadian Revenue Agency’s requirements. 


  • Eliminated both double-entry and misplaced information by having everything in one place. 

  • In 2018, Govan Brown reported $300 million in revenue—surpassing their initial goal of $100 million, which had been projected when they partnered with CMiC. 

  • Expanded across Canada, with offices in Calgary, Vancouver, Ottawa, Winnipeg and Edmonton.
