Mechanical Engineer @ IDEA Inc. - Ottawa

Company: IDEA Inc.

Position: Mechanical Engineer

Location: Ottawa, ON

IDEA Inc. is comprised of highly talented professionals who together form dynamic integrated design teams. All areas of the business work collaboratively to ensure every design solution balances vision and pragmatism, environmentally responsible design, and architectural and engineering excellence. In January 2019 IDEA Inc. announced the acquisition of COLE+Associates Architects Inc. in Ottawa. Existing clients of both firms immediately benefited from combined experience, increased human resources and broadened capabilities. The firms complemented one another in terms of their varied experience in multiple project types; most specifically in the areas of healthcare, government, industrial and heritage. In many ways this was a natural transition for the two companies, due to the success of both companies as high performance, service-oriented, boutique firms. IDEA Inc. now operates with offices in Ottawa and Sault Ste. Marie and is considered a boutique design firm that can offer architectural and engineering services within the Institutional, Commercial & Industrial (ICI) sector. A holistic approach to high-performance building design and construction, a deep knowledge of the art of design and strong attention to detail are the pillars of the integrated approach at IDEA Inc.
