The one that started it all…

Established in 1965, Toronto was Smith + Andersen’s first office. Nearly six decades and four office moves later, we've established ourselves as one of the leading engineering firms not only in the city, but across Canada. From geothermal solutions, to radiant heating and cooling, to district energy, this is a team that is driven by innovation and hard work. We take just as much pride in our work on a tenant fit-up or building assessment as we do contributing to the city's tallest towers.

As our largest office, the Toronto team demonstrates that decades of investing in our staff through strong mentorship and team building really pays off. From our professional engineers and low voltage systems design specialists, to our proposal coordinators and BIM technicians, we rely on each other to deliver high quality designs that lead to project success. Our dedicated resources and commitment to collaboration across such a wide variety of teams is at the core of our Toronto office, and is truly what sets us apart as industry leaders. 

Bram Quote

“With the confidence of the industry behind us, and we continue to earn many new and repeat clients. We have a reputation of not only providing good designs but also providing worth—we're regularly recognized and rewarded beyond our fee.”

“The collaborative efforts of 160 Front’s exceptional project team have undoubtedly played a huge part in the ongoing success of this iconic office tower. Together, we are further defining downtown Toronto’s landscape and delivering a project as impressive on the inside as it is on the outside.” 

Dan Larson, Principal

PRIORITIZATION & BALANCE

A joint venture with B+H Architects, Cadillac Fairview, and Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architects, 160 Front was fully leased before construction even began. Our mechanical and sustainability teams took the requests of the anchor tenant into consideration in the design, strategically working with stakeholders to prioritize and balance the needs of various parties.

MULTI-UNIT RESIDENTIAL

In and around the Greater Toronto Area, our teams have worked on a number of projects that have quite literally shaped city skylines. From multi-phased multi-building projects to award-winning mixed-use buildings, our team knows what it takes to successfully design for the project at hand.

TOWERING TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION 

The HUB is a 1.5 million square foot office tower that focusses on efficiency, sustainability, and connectivity. Poised for 2025 completion, the Class-AAA office tower in downtown Toronto includes such design features as photovoltaic panels and deep-lake cooling technology. Our mechanical and electrical engineers have been hard at work to design systems that maximize innovation while minimizing environmental impact.

WHAT A CITE TO SEE

Seneca’s biggest construction project yet — throughout the design process, a series of elements were created to tell Indigenous stories within the framework. For example, the 13 large columns on the exterior of the building reflect lunar cycles. Our efforts didn’t go unnoticed; the project was recognized at the 2021 Toronto Urban Design Awards alongside 80 Atlantic!

ON THE GO...

Smith + Andersen is proud to be involved in a number of transportation projects in and around Toronto. We’re providing mechanical and electrical services for the ongoing Union Station Enhancement Project (USEP), which involves an expansion of Union Station to accommodate more frequent (and higher speed) train service, increased passenger demand levels, and the electrification of the Metrolinx rail network through the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.

TEN OUT OF TEN(ANT)

From office fit-ups to flagship stores, interior spaces are a specialty of our Toronto teams. We design mechanical systems that don't get in the way (or are highly visible, if that's the look and feel of the space), audio-visual systems that make it easy to collaborate, and electrical systems that complement brand standards. When it's the details that make a difference, we recommend working with a team that understands every detail...

Scott Davis, Senior Proposal Specialist

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

Whether it’s kayaking around the Toronto Islands to clean up, a quick "TEK Talk" over lunch, over a friendly trivia competition after work, hanging out with our colleagues is often the best part of our day. So if skiing if your thing...or maybe painting...we have many ways to get involved!
