Edgeworth Construction International Ltd

Edgeworth Construction Ltd. was incorporated as a General
Contractor in 1965. During the initial twenty years of
the company concentrated on large civil engineering construction
projects in British Columbia and Alberta with an emphasis on
building, site preparation and other large volume earth moving
contracts. The company maintained a large fleet of heavy
construction machinery and completed projects up to a value of
$20,000,000.00 CDN.

More recently the company has diversified its operation and
expanded its fields of expertise to include contracts involving
specialized underground utility systems, sewage treatment
industrial concrete buildings and highway bridges.

In 1984 Edgeworth anticipated a declining local market and
initiated a quest for offshore work. This effort culminated in
prequalifying to tender a number of projects in Africa, the
Caribbean and South America. Edgeworth was the successful
tenderer on projects in St. Lucia, W.I., Turks and Caicos
Islands, W.I. and Guyana, S.A. These projects were a part of
Caribbean Airports Project, sponsored and funded by the Canadian
Government. The objective of the program was to improve safety
aspects in a variety of airports in the Caribbean region, and
work involved resurfacing runways, upgrading structural
components such as control towers and Nav-aid buildings, and
modernizing electrical and runway lighting systems.

In September 1992 we completed a contract in the Kingdom of
which included construction of a large airplane maintenance
hangar and associated civil, mechanical and electrical
components. This project was CIDA funded with major materials
sourced from Canada.

Edgeworth Construction International Ltd. was established in
for the purpose of pursuing future off-shore contracts and
administering Edgeworth's international activities.

During 1993 we negotiated an exclusive sales agreement with
Kamost Timber of Tomsk, Russia to represent their lumber and
products through the World exclusive of Russia. Sales to Asian,
European and Middle East markets resulted in annual lumber sales
of 200,000 cubic meters of spruce, cedar, pine and fir lumber
75,000 treated pine power poles.

During the completion of the airport project in Guyana in 1989,
Edgeworth recognized the shortage in availability of quality
aggregate products in the country for construction purposes.
Government of Guyana, following a successful relationship with
Edgeworth during the 1989 construction contract, agreed to
consider a joint operation of their quarry resources.
Discussions between Edgeworth and the Government proceeded and
November 1994 Edgeworth Construction International Ltd.
a three year negotiation period that resulted in the creation of
a 50/50 joint venture with the Government of Guyana to manage
operate Government owned granite deposits. Production of high
quality aggregates for utilization in asphalt and concrete
products plus armour stone for the local Caribbean market
commenced in July 1995, which resulted in annual sales of
$5,000,000.00 U.S.

E.C.I.L. is a member of The Canadian Exporters' Association,
