  • Preparing electrical bid and construction drawings and documents for various projects.
  • Completing site reviews during construction and reporting on observations.
  • Communicating effectively with clients, contractors, and other project stakeholders.
  • Coordinating with other engineering disciplines, architects, and subconsultants on multidisciplinary projects.

  • We foster a friendly, welcoming, and team-oriented atmosphere that encourages innovation and collaboration.

  • Health and dental benefits and RRSP/DPSP programs are offered immediately.
