One of western Canada’s best known consulting engineering firms in the transportation sector has joined Marshall Macklin Monaghan consulting engineers of Toronto, otherwise known as MMM. The announcement was made on September 15, by Bruce Bodden, President and CEO of MMM.
ND Lea Consultants has played a major role in the development of Vancouver’s public transit system, including acting as project manager for theVancouver Millennium Line SkyTrain project which won a Canadian Consulting Engineering Award of Excellence in 2002. While Marshall Macklin Monaghan operates in a wider spectrum of engineering services, it too has an especially a high profile in transportation projects, especially airports. It was the joint project manager on the recently completed Ottawa Airport expansion, for example, which won a Canadian Consulting Engineering Award last year. It is also project manager for the massive Toronto Pearson International Airport Development project as part of the MGP Project Management Joint Venture.
Together with ND Lea’s 125 staff, MMM will now have around 900 staff in total.
“The merger will provide our clients with added depth to meet their project challenges while providing our staff greater opportunity for personal growth and career development,” said Peter Washchyshyn, P.Eng., Chief Executive officer of ND Lea.
Bruce Bodden noted that the two companies have worked together in the past and “have complementary corporate cultures for the areas in which we can most effectively blend our talents. With a booming western economy and government commitments for major transportation projects in Alberta and B.C., we are strongly positioned for opportunities in the western market.”
MMM is a privately owned, employee-managed firm based in Thornhill, north of Toronto. ND Lea has offices in Vancouver, Kamloops, Williams Lake and Winnipeg, as well as Clifton ND Lea Consulting in Calgary.
