HDR’s Building Engineering Services Expands Into Canada

Mission Critical Facility Data Center

HDR has formed a dedicated, multi-disciplinary building engineering services practice in Canada to expand the long-standing architecture and engineering portfolio for Canadian clients. The move follows the July 2019 acquisition of Hurley Palmer Flatt Group, a U.K.-based independent engineering consultancy providing solutions for the built environment.

The building engineering services group brings together project experts — from transit facilities and industrial installations to commercial and institutional buildings — for mechanical, plumbing electrical, structural and civil engineering work.

“One important area for growth is in mission-critical facilities such as complex data centers, with a focus on energy efficiency and sustainable, green building design,” said Neil Macdonald, HDR's building engineering services manager in Canada.
