2022 got off to a strong start for McIntosh Perry and turned out to be an eventful one – we were still able to celebrate several significant milestones and memories. We’re thankful for our clients, partners, and our people, who helped each other through these challenging times. We are wrapping up the year by highlighting charities helped, awards won, tradeshows and conferences attended, and much more.
Let’s take a deeper look:
Awards Achieved: Our awards demonstrate our commitment to our clients and to our communities. All these awards wouldn’t be possible without the hard work of our staff, clients, and partners. These demonstrate how we are turning possibilities into reality. This year, we won Ontario Public Works Association Award (OPWA), Best Managed Companies (Platinum Member), and ENR Ranking (BLN).

Charities Helped: We at McIntosh Perry always pride ourselves on contributing back to the communities in which we live, work, and play. We always have a long history of Giving back. In 2022 we supported the following organizations: Food4Kids Halton, Kerr Street Mission, One Drop, Children’s Aid Foundation, Movember, and Food Banks across Canada with our office Food Drive.
North American Project Highlight: We worked on many interesting projects this year, helping our clients turn possibilities into reality. One of the most significant projects we worked on this year was the Indiana Department of Administration (IDOA) Building Condition Assessments. The IDOA project involved both BLN, our associated firm in the U.S., and the Buildings group at McIntosh Perry. The project involved assessing more than 4,300 of Indiana’s state buildings and assets, including park cabins and sheds to office buildings and prisons. This is the first of many joint projects in the future!
Notable Hires: Over the year we welcomed many people to McIntosh Perry including Fabian Briceno, Executive Vice President, Infrastructure (Transportation), and Jesse Martin, Vice President, Contract Administration. These individuals bring decades of experience and expertise helping strengthen the business relationships internally and externally and turning possibilities into reality. We are always expanding our scope and looking for new talent to join our supportive, dynamic team.
Tradeshows and Conferences attended: Attending tradeshows is always a great way to meet our clients, partners, and friends. We use these opportunities to raise brand awareness, cultivate business relationships, stay on top of the latest developments in our industry, and help turn possibilities into reality. This year we were pleased to see events returning to in-person, and we exhibited at PM Springfest, Canadian Federation of Apartment Associations, CCI Grand River Conference, CCI Golden Horseshoe Conference, Condo Conference, CCI Eastern Ontario, Condominium Home Owners Association of BC, Contech Montreal, The Buildings Show, and various ACMO Lunches.
Website Launch: We launched our new website in October, placing McIntosh Perry and Beam, Longest, and Neff (BLN) on a single domain. The website reflects our strength as North America’s Leading team of Engineers, Problem Solvers, and Technical Experts. Designed to help our clients turn possibilities into reality, our new website makes it easier to find what you’re looking for and highlights the cross-border services of both McIntosh Perry and BLN.
Helping to Educate Our Clients: Helping our clients understand technical issues is an important part of what we do. We’re leaders in our fields, and sharing our expertise makes our clients better. We presented on a variety of topics at several conferences this year, including the 11th International Conference Short and Medium Span Bridges, ARRA Annual Conference, CITE Annual Conference, PM Springfest, CCI Eastern Ontario, CCI Huronia, and The Buildings Show. We also presented to clients in a one-on-one setting to help them understand how we can help them turn possibilities into reality.
Getting Social: After more than two years of not connecting in person, it was great to make the most out of good weather during Summer and early Fall with get-togethers in our offices across Canada. In addition to the BBQs, we also had our first in-person Seasonal Parties this past November and December.
We also had two in-person Town Hall sessions, where our leaders met with staff face-to-face to discuss where the company is and where it’s going. It was a great opportunity for staff to connect with our senior leadership and with each other.
We finally got the chance to celebrate, meet everyone and spend time with new and old colleagues. We had more than 300 participants in events across Canada. We can’t wait to see what is in store for next year!
