Coram Construction Solutions Inc. is a member of the Ram-Land Group of companies - a forward-thinking fully integrated real estate organization.
Established in 1993, Coram continues a 75+ year family tradition of providing professional services and quality workmanship in the construction of residential, commercial and institutional developments.
The origins of Coram date back to 1946. That’s when Albert Melchior Sr. - Coram’s founder and patriarch of the Melchior family - started his first construction company. In the beginning he focused on single home construction but soon graduated into apartment and high-rise residential construction. From there he moved into commercial and institutional projects as well.
Prior to starting his company Albert Sr. spent many years learning the construction and real estate business from the ground up working as a tradesperson on many different projects – from low rise residential to high rise commercial.
Coram Construction Solutions Inc. is now in the hands of the second generation of the Melchior family who were mentored in all aspects of the business by their father. This legacy of experience helps them appreciate the subtleties and challenges encountered during a project’s life cycle.
Over the years, Coram has developed the systems needed to control construction budgets and schedules to ensure cost-effective and timely production. Our team of experienced construction and accounting managers take a hands-on approach regarding all aspects of a project.
Due to Coram’s longevity and reputation for excellence, we have established long-term relationships with prominent financiers, legal firms, accountants, design consultants, tradespeople and inspection firms to ensure that appropriate and professional support is present throughout the project life cycle. These extensive corporate and personal relationships are what help us deliver projects on time and on budget for our clients.

This construction experience has proven invaluable as Randy practices his specialty of site acquisition and development taking the raw land, obtaining all municipal requirements so as to move the development through to pre-construction.
