On April 27th, Smith + Andersen and Footprint hosted our fifth annual Eco Jam at the MOD Club in downtown Toronto. This benefit rock concert highlighted the musical talent hidden in our industry, as architecture, engineering, and construction leaders from across the GTA listened to their peers cover non-stop hits to a sold out house.
Every year during Earth Week, this event draws attention to the importance of trees to the construction industry. Since 2013, Eco Jam, in conjunction with Forests Ontario, has planted more than 10,000 trees across Ontario.
Thanks to everyone who supported this event, especially our sponsors: EllisDon, Zeidler, Guild Electric Ltd., RJC Engineers, Plan Group, B+H Architects, Diamond Schmitt Architects, Entuitive, PCL Agile, Quadrangle, and Perkins + Will.
Photos are posted on the Eco Jam website, and videos will be added soon. In the meantime, below is a list of the companies who shared their talent at Eco Jam 2017:
Moriyama & Teshima
Perkins + Will
Smith + Andersen
