Founded in 1965, Smith + Andersen’s early focus was in the field of mechanical building systems. Initially based in Toronto, S+A grew significantly in 1976-77 with the opening of branch offices in Calgary and Ottawa. Further expansion included the creation of an electrical division (1997), integration of a full-service communications services and project management division (1999), and the establishment of offices in Edmonton, Vancouver, Kelowna, Victoria (2009), London (2012), Winnipeg (2014) and Halifax (2016). With sustainability increasingly forming a critical component of all company projects, we created our sister firm Footprint in 2011. S+A now offers a range of sustainability services, from site planning and energy modelling through to the facilitation of a LEED certification process.
