Nearly six decades of engineering excellence.
In 1965, Ian Smith and John Andersen established Smith + Andersen with a clear vision: to build a respected firm dedicated to providing engineering excellence for valued clients. Their intent was for Smith + Andersen to be a place where relationships are valued, innovation prioritized, and professionalism elevated.
Today, that vision is a reality. Smith + Andersen is one of Canada’s most respected, integrated, multi-disciplinary engineering firms. Working with forward-thinking clients on industry-leading and award-winning projects, our team is at the forefront of engineering innovation that is shaping the Canadian design and construction industry. As we challenge ourselves, we’re also constantly challenging each other, and looking for new ways to provide quality, flexible engineering solutions.
Whether it’s pushing the boundaries of sustainable design, or guiding our clients as they consider new certifications and possible integrations, we’re committed to never settling for the status quo.
Over the years, Smith + Andersen has grown both steadily and organically.
We offered new services when it made sense for us and for our clients, and opened new offices when the timing was right.
As stories go, it's not a thriller...or even a mystery. It's just the story of a reliable and talented group of engineers and designers who set some clear goals, stuck to their values, provided excellent client service...and had some fun along the way.
