Intermediate Building Code Consultant
Are you looking for a more rewarding career and workplace? Look no further…
We’re looking to expand our Toronto team by adding a skilled Intermediate Building Code Consultant who can review, develop and document approaches to building code compliance related to Fire Protection and Life Safety Building Code requirements.
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 it is a great time to join us.
