Our residential projects include long-term care facilities and condominium apartments such as the Salvation Army Grace Manor, a long-term care facility, the Hudson Park condominiums, and the Celtic Manor Hotel in Wales.  We have provided the structural engineering services of our team to six school boards designing over 30 new schools in Eastern Ontario as well as private school, college and university authorities. Our commercial buildings comprise about 15 buildings in Kanata Research Park including Alcatel, Stealth, and Nokia buildings, and the four commercial towers of the Blackwood Centre, plus the Merivale campus of JDS Uniphase and its tenant fit-up for the new RCMP National Headquarters. The Ottawa Regional Police Services building in Gloucester is an example of our involvement with post-disaster design.
