Inventive and Innovative

We always ask “Is there a better way” (to perform our jobs and to help our clients). We encourage our teams to try new ideas, processes, and tools to ensure that we stay on the forefront of our evolving industry. This environment isn’t for everyone… you have to be naturally inquisitive and embrace change.


From Nunavut to Beverly Hills or Banff to Miami, our staff loves the opportunity to see new places, try cool new technologies and work on some of North America’s most iconic buildings. Outside of work, our team enjoys sharing personal adventures like posting the route of a grueling bike ride, the results of trying a new BBQ recipe or meeting up in an online game.


We leverage our years of experience to get to the root of a challenge so that we can clearly define a statement of work. We are laser focused on bringing clarity to complex problems.
