Our Skills and

Our services

At the outset of any project the most important element in the design process is communication. We ensure that mechanical and electrical building systems are integrated within the architects' concepts, and that these systems are flexible enough to accommodate future changes.

Our energy specialists will define the energy, water and other resource consuming aspects of the project. We will quantify the environmental impact on the environment for the design alternatives that are considered during the study and report phase.


Energy Modeling is a mandatory requirement in the

design of modern energy efficient buildings. Our energy specialists will model the your building from an operational perspective and compare performance of alternate HVAC system alternatives. Energy modeling also proves compliance with Ontario Building Code requirement for energy performance.



We are an active member of the Green Building Council of Canada and have been at the forefront of advocating green building designs, changing industry standards, and implementing sustainable design and construction practices. Our LEED certified professionals ensure that we can utilize in-house software packages and work seamlessly with LEED consultants to design sustainable energy efficient LEED accredited facilities.


Sustainability and LEED principals have become a fundamental design principal for all our building designs Since 2003. We have designed over 20 healthcare, research, laboratory, educational and municipal buildings that are either LEED certified or Green Globe certified.
