Intermediate Building Code Consultant
Are you looking for a more rewarding career and workplace? Look no further…
Are you a P.Eng., Registered Architect or Technologist (or training/eligible to become one) who enjoys rigid structure, ridiculous hours, isolation in cubicles, limited access to projects, and doing the same thing every day? If so, this is NOT the job for you. We are a decidedly different firm and now is a great time to join us!
We’re looking to expand our Toronto team by adding a skilled Intermediate or Senior Building Code Consultant who can review, develop, and document approaches to building code compliance related to Fire Protection and Life Safety Building Code requirements. This role will be primarily in support of our work with architectural, developer, and institutional clients.
Founded in 1988, LMDG is a well-established firm specializing in fire protection and life safety building code consulting. Our solid reputation is founded on decades of satisfied clients, participation on Code and Standards committees, and work with enforcement authorities. Our offices in Vancouver and Toronto serve an ever-growing portfolio of clients including leading architects, engineers, building owners, developers, contractors, government agencies, insurers, and lawyers.
Why you’ll love working with us
ACCELERATED GROWTH: While siloed, compartmentalized firms limit your development, our collaborative work style GUARANTEES you access and exposure to a wide variety of projects. As our new consultant, we will quickly get you up to speed, invest in your training and participation in seminars, conferences and technical associations and continuously support you in realizing your full potential. As we promote from within, you won’t have any career limits. The type of professional growth and development we offer simply doesn’t happen in larger firms.
DIVERSITY OF INTERESTING PROJECTS: Commercial and residential. Transportation and government. Healthcare and academic. Sports, cultural, heritage and AHJ projects. We do it all, and you will too.
