Bruce G. Matthews
Executive Director, Association of Consulting Engineering Companies — Ontario
Consulting engineer companies benefit from ACEC-Ontario’s leadership in policy advocacy and risk management, along with knowledge-sharing networks and relevant support services.
At its heart, professional engineering is about the safeguarding of life, health, property, the environment, and the public welfare through the application of engineering principles. Professional engineers, and the consulting engineering firms that employ them, have an ethical obligation to regard their duty to the public welfare as paramount. In retaining a member company of the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies – Ontario (ACEC-Ontario), you get objective, skilled problem-solvers that you can trust.
Professional engineering is an ever-changing field. This is seen both in the technologies that firms employ to deliver their services and in the stressors that are experienced by the equipment, infrastructure, buildings, and systems they design. Climate change has meant a new focus on design for climate resilience and sustainability, and a new perspective on the lifecycle of anything that’s exposed to the elements. The member companies of ACEC-Ontario understand this.
Consulting engineer companies act as independent agents and trusted advocates for their clients, and are responsible for finding innovative solutions to a broad range of challenges. ACEC-Ontario seeks to be the go-to resource for these companies, offering leadership in policy advocacy and risk management while providing knowledge and education programs that deliver value and impact.
