The SDK team is comprised of over 50 skilled engineers and talented technicians working together to develop creative solutions for your projects. The team employs state-of-the-art tools and innovative analysis methods adhering to processes defined by our quality management system in compliance with ISO 9001 standards.

All projects are developed and shared with collaborators using centralized 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) throughout the various project phases: pre-project concept development, preparation of plans and specifications, and construction and operation of the building.

Our engineers, experienced in Integrated Design Processes (IDP), work with multidisciplinary teams of stakeholders, clients, architects and industry professionals from the very first steps of a project to the last. Similarly, these same principles are used internally within the project team to ensure close collaboration and optimal flow of information.
